My First EVER Giveaway ! YAY !

Welcome to my very first Giveaway. I am very excited to have providing the great product that one of you lucky ducks will be receiving.

I went over to kitchen furniture area, and shopped around to pick out something that I thought would make a great gift for the giveaway, and while there I was impressed with the vast amount of items. Here's a little collage I made of some items to show you the wide range that's available:

Each "store" is set up with furniture and items for a different area of the home. One shopping cart handles everything though. And it's more than furniture. Pots and pans, wall art, wine racks, dishes and lots more.
There is also a bit of history provided and a link to the community efforts they have been involved in. And I was surprised to find a 'Return Outlet' where you can purchase returned, but in good condition, items.

While there are higher end goods, there are also lots of things on sale and a bunch that are "Free Shipping". ( I just LOVE free shipping)

One of the items that I fell in love with is this wall clock, I found it in, you guessed it, the wall clock category under the heading "kitchen".

Another favorite is this Retro dining set......we had something like this when I was about 5.

And this framed print of an old crate label for wine grapes.

It was fun looking around at the huge selection of all house stuff A-Z.

Now for the really yummy part.....CORNINGWARE!!! We all love Corningware or we have someone in our life who hearts Corningware.
You know you've eaten something pretty darn yummy that's been cooked in Corningware. And even if you do not cook (?) this would make a face totally light up and a person totally cook you something grand if you were to give them a gift of Corningware.
So it is the gift that keeps on giving. will be sending the winner of the giveaway this Corningware - French White 10-Piece Baking Set

With it's classic, fluted design this set is a great way to bake and serve a meal all in one pan. A perfect blend of style and function, it's designed to be used for casual and formal dining. The dishes and covers can be used in conventional, convection and microwave ovens as well for storing food in the refrigerator and freezer. These dishes wash easily by hand or in the dishwasher and the non-porous stoneware won’t absorb food odors. They are also non-reactive so acid-based foods can be prepped or baked in it.
