Giveaway at The Hut!

Sometimes timing is everything and that's the case today! You have all been so sweet and supportive during my recent moves that I thought a giveaway would be a perfect way to say thank you, so when the folks at CSN Stores contacted me recently asking to host another one, I quickly agreed. We love CSN Stores and if you haven't seen their bar tables and stools yet, be sure to drop in check them out!

This time around the prize is your choice of a  $75 Gift from any one of their over 200 stores. Pick your favorite! With the holidays right around the corner, what could be better?

So what do you need to do to be the lucky winner? Since I've been simplifying my life, I'm going to incorporate that philosophy here. All you have to do is leave one comment telling me what your favorite set of bar stools is and be sure I have a way to contact you — either through your blog or email address. 

You must be a U.S. or Canadian resident
have someone in one of these two countries
that you would like to send a gift to
since that is where CSN Stores ships.  

The deadline is Sunday, November 14th at midnight EST.

I'm leaving on Sunday for my trip to Sanibel Island with my bff Karen of The Esssential Beachcomber, so I won't be online — I'll be on…

Sanibel Island

I'll be walking the shoreline…

Looking for a few a lot of these…

Waiting to see a few of these…

And wishing

all of you could

be there with us!

Well, Rhonda, I guess I'm first, which probably doesn't bode well in the random drawing since I never see number one win, LOL! But hey, that's okay!

Girl, I found the CUTEST barstool, and I would apply the money toward this. It's name is Hillsdale West Palm 30" Tropical Swivel Bar Stool. And it's faux bamboo. Now, you know that stool in all its cuteness has got to come live at my house, but it's a tad pricey for my wallet right now. But I have been looking for something similar for a long time. Actually, the price is great. Mabye if they go on sale at some point they can come live here. But I like the backless stools, too, and they have a rush seated one (I saw counter height, but I bet they have a bar stool height) that are cool, too! Those would fit in my price point!

Oh, and I'm not trying to steal a second chance or anything, but I forgot to say have a great time shelling!!!!

Love you...

The Decorative Dreamer said...

Well that was too easy! I like the Winsome Regalia 29" barstool set with rush seat, in black! I really would love some of those! I sure do hope you have a wonderful weekend, it sounds devine! I'm glad you've gotten back to blogging, I missed you. I hope I get the chance soon to catch up on your goings on soon. I just scanned the last few posts and see you have been quite busy "enjoying" yourself. LOL! Be sure and take some more photos this weekend of yourself so I can figure out which gal you were in the photo two posts back. Hope your back is feeling much better now. Have a great time!

Lori E said...

Canada too? Awesome.
I like Riverside Furniture Medley Counter Stool in Camden - 45028
I do have a counter that these would look great at.
Have a lovely holiday

CrazyCris said...

You're great with the giveaways! I just hope one of your sponsors will let you do it overseas once! :p

Have a great trip!!! I'm sure you'll come back with TONS of shells! ;o)

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I do love Sanibel and shelling. Have a wonderful time, I am so jealous! The bar stool I really like is Hillsdale Pacifico! Thanks for the chance to win this wonderful Gift Card!!

Tammigirl said...

I would rather go to the beach with you guys, but since you didn't invite us, I would accept the gift certificate as a consolation if I am lucky enough to win it.

If I had a place to put bar stools I would like to have the Hillsdale Montello 32.5" Swivel Bar Stools.

Marty@A Stroll Thru Life said...

Found you through Tennis Girl and what a great blog. Your giveaway is so generous too. I have been looking for bar stools and have been on CSN drooling over a lot of theirs. I would either choose the Shenandoah Valley or the Carolina Cottage. Both are wonderful. Please put my name in the drawing. I also just signed in to follow. I look forward to reading more. Hugs, Marty

The Florida Blogger said...

I'm a fan of this bar stool. It says it sits high and because I'm 6'4", I guess it'd fit me right nice! Have fun on vacation!

The Florida Blogger said...

Forgot to post the bar stool:)

Jane said...

Hi Rhonda!
Wish I was going with you to Sanibel...and shelling. I'd love to learn some of your shell secrets. Have a fabulous time (I noticed this morning that the tides were REALLY LOW in the bay. Should be a great time for you guys to find some beauties! Can't wait to see your treasures.

I am definitely partial to the Hillsdale West Palm Swivel barstool. Hmmm...I wonder why?
Jane (artfully graced)

Leo said...

My favorite barstools are the kind that I have around my kitchen island. Bright yellow with a comfy seat. Looking forward to spending a day of shelling with you...WAHOOO!!!!

Drawn to The Sea said...

How fun! I like the soft color of the simple Great American Eco-Friendly Basil Saddle Stool... looks like it would snuggle up nicely to a wall to hold a basket of driftwood or flowers.

Safe, happy journey! Dig your toes in the sand & smile at the sun to your heart's content :-)

rjerdee said...

Hi Rhonda Sweetie...
Happy Pink Saturday and what a beautiful share. A giveaway. Yippeee. Please add my name to the hopper. I would love a CSN shopping spree. Christmas is just around the corner.

I loved all the bar stools. BUT, well I would have to say that the Hillsdale West Palm Swivel barstool really stole my ole heart.

I know I will be walking with you in spirit while you are in Sanibel. I pray you will pick me up a few treasures as well. I love shelling, and it has been years since I have been back to Huntington Beach to search. (That is the closest to the desert out here.) Have a fun time. I can already feel the mist on my face, the water and sand on my toes, and the seagulls cry over head.

Many thanks for the beautiful share sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

HI Rhonda,
Oh, do I ever want to go to Sanibel Island too! Looks so wonderful!
And I would pick the cottage style! They are just wonderful, hope I win!

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

Hope you have a wonderful time shelling:) I like the Great American 30" Double X Chair...just my style! Thanks for coming by!


Athena said...

I would choose the bamboo54 bamboo stools.

Kat said...

What a neat give a way! I love the Riverside Furniture splash of color in chilled melon or sunrise red. Hope you have a wonderful time on Sanibel. I've only seen it in my mind thanks to Randy Wayne White's Doc Thorn series, but I know it must be gorgeous! Kat

meeyeehere said...
These would be terrific for an outdoor bar or something like that.

Completely Coastal said...

I'd love to win a shopping trip to CSN!!!! And am looking forward for pics of your trip. I really, really want to visit!!

Deanna said...

My favorite is the Bago Luma Barcelona Social Bistro Table and Swivel Barstool Set:

Tootie said...

I'll keep an eye out for you ladies, and I wish you the best shelling luck ever! I heard some shells were rolling in just after dark this evening between Gulf Pines and Bowman's. :)) You might want to check that area.

Funny, I was just looking on this same site a few days ago and picked these out in white rattan SKU #: HOS1088. Love them! :)

Loui♥ said...

the Hillsdale Montello would be the stool for me..
but, I would much prefer being outdoors with you and Karen finding shells..
than being indoors perched on a bar stool..
unless I was sipping a Margarita!!
hard choice..
Have fun!!
warm sandy hugs..

The Fajdich Times said...

Sanibel are so lucky. Have a great time:)

As for the bar stools, I like the Woodbridge Home Design. Great giveaway, count me in.

Unknown said...

I don't need barstools(our's come from Tweenies when they redid the place),but I wanted to wish you happy times on Sanibel.But then how could you not have great time there....

CHERI said...

Hey, Rhonda. I am soooo behind in my blog reading and have definitely been missing hearing from you. I come to visit and find out you are having a wonderful giveaway. We blogger gals love CSN! Although I love those cute little red Regal Caracau ones, I'd probably choose the Hillsdale the back on them. So you are soon to be off for Sanibel...sure wish I were going with you. I am definitely in need of a vacation!!!! Have fun!

TruthHole said...
this metal bar stool would be nice to have.

wishn4summer said...

Crosley Upholstered Saddle Seat Bar Stool (yummy in leather)...if I had a place to put them ...and if I had time to sit on them.

love your blog (just found it) and Love Sanibel. Three trips down this year. Hope you have endless days there and lots of shells!!

jmac said...

Is Love of the Sea your shelling buddy? How cool! And I have got to take a pic of my Pine Island'll laugh. Our sailboat used to be there...
I want all the barstools. All of 'em!!
Have a blast.....quiet, relaxing blast!

Arabella said...

Missed you again - I guess you are lounging around on Sanibel about now.

Would love this CSN gift card for the Holidays!

Hope you're well & having fun!!

Oh gosh, aren't those outdoor bar stools GREAT?!!!! I could put my name on one of those in a heartbeat! BUT, since I have 5 grandsons, I think I'd have to go for the Hillsdale Senoma adjustable stools. They would raise my grandmotherly cool factor immensely!

You have my e-mail address. I'll be waiting for the winning e-mail. :)

Hi Shellbelle
How are you!! WE miss you but it looks like you are having such a wonderful time, I can't wait to get down to Florida next month and get my toes in the sand!!! I hope you are rested, relaxed and finding lots of lovely seashells.
If I were so lucky to win and I hardly ever do win anything, but I'm going to be optimistic here... :) I would pick the black modern Alex set. I think it would be so cool to hang out on there with a cocktail and listen to some Dean Martin and the boys...Oh yes that would be one fun eventing! Maybe if I don't win Santa will bring it to me, I have been a pretty good girl these days not getting into too much trouble LOL
Have a wonderful evening

The Muse said...

no contest entry here just sending a warm hello~back on home ground and visiting wonderful friends!
Have fun !!! and Stay safe :)

I love the beach and everything that goes with it! I love the waves lapping at my feet. I love the feel of the sand between my toes. I love the roar of the Pacific and the gentle waves of the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. Let's talk about beaches around the world, bonfires, building sandcastles, swaying palm trees, flamingos, clambakes, sunrises and sunsets. If it's tropical, it fits this blog!
