Day dreaming and a giveaway

The other day I was picturing all the things I'd love to do to our house. Of course, since that money tree hasn't taken root, we're still in the day dreaming stage. I think I'd start with our downstairs bathroom since it's the smallest room in the house. I really want a new vanity for starters.


I really like the look of this one. I'd put a skirt around the inside perimeter to hide the essentials.  I'd also love to wallpaper the wall with book pages. Wouldn't that be fun!

Ok...enough with the day dreaming for today. Let's get on with the giveaway...





The CSN stores have given me the great opportunity host a giveaway open to U.S. and Canada residents right here, right now!


I checked out the art supplies and came up with these great items:















So, how do you win these art supplies? 
  • 1st entry- leave a comment on this post...make sure there is some way for me to contact you
  • 2nd optional entry- become a follower of my blog then post another comment telling me you did so...if you already follow tell me that in a comment as well
  • 3rd optional entry- blog about this giveaway and post the link in a comment
Please post your comment before midnight central time on Wednesday June 30th to be counted. The winner will be chosen using a random number generator. The winner's name will be posted July 1st.

That's it ...  Good luck!

Hi Halle, I love your blog and have so enjoyed my visit here. Your bathroom ideas are going to be wonderful. We redesigned and updated our master bath last winter. It was much needed and so glad to have it done after 3 weeks work. You will have a great time when your dream becomes a reality.
Great giveaway, I would love to enter and now happy follower too.
Thank you for stopping by to visit my creative space and leaving such sweet comments. I hope you can visit again.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

I'd love to win the art supplies!

By the way, I once bought a house with a bathroom wallpapered in Chinese newspaper. We ended up replacing the drywall because it got destroyed when we tried to steam/soak the newspaper off! The book pages might not be a great idea.

Wabbit said...

I'm now following you! By the way, we wish you'd participate again in a TreasureArtTrends project. We've missed you! Marilyn

Wabbit said...

AND I posted about your give away, even though it reduces my own odds of winning! ;-))

Hi Halle, Well you just visited my blog so only fair that I do the same and visit yours. Of course I am always up for a giveaway! I love your commentarly in your posts especially your pesky deer! They are so adorable until they eat one of your prized flowers...I don't even try except for hanging plants because I literally live in the woods, which I think you saw on my blog post for the blog hop of studios - that converted barn is also my house! I am joining your blog because I love your sense of humor (well ok I like art supplies too):D I will add a post on my blog later this afternoon as I am driving to Boston this morning to get some things from Dick Blick (no real art supply stores around here in New Hampshire).
Good to meet you and look forward to blogging back and forth.
