Time's Up!-It's GIVEAWAY Time!!!!

Winner will be announced later today, and watch for two NEW giveaways to be posted to the Hurrikane Chronicles and Hurrikane Puppy blogs (links on the right sidebar).

It's not specifically Vallhund related (although you can buy something for your Vallhund if you win!), but here comes the first of the $40 CSN Stores giveaway blog posts.
You'll have to keep up with the other Hurrikane blogs, as two of our other blogs will feature giveaways as well. You can use your gift card at any of the over 200 CSN stores.

Since Janet did her blog giveaway, I have been poking around at all the CSN online stores, in hopes that maybe this year, I can get serious about giving my little house a makeover, one room at a time.

So, first things first, my living room has always bothered me, because there is NO lighting. It's a small room, it never gets much natural light, and there are no fixtures. I'm thinking that perhaps the way to go in my living room, to save space and create more uniform lighting, might be Track Lighting. What do you all think? Looking around at the website, I am leaning toward one of the Track Lighting Kits, so that I know I have all the pieces and parts that I need. I think the pendant globe lights above are ultra cool, but they probably wouldn't be right for my living room. It has low celings, and I'm a pretty tall person.
:-P


I should probably stick with something a bit more traditional, not too flashy, clean lines.

Now on to the important part: HOW TO WIN!!!

First, since I'm completely indecisive about important things like what to eat for lunch on any given day, I can't possibly be trusted to pick out something important like permanent lighting for my living room. So, you'll have to go to the CSN store for Track Lighting and leave me a comment telling me which Track Lighting KIT (there's a link specifically to narrow down to kits) I should consider for a small room, low ceilings.

Or, you can just leave me a comment telling me you don't care about track lighting, and put a link to this post on YOUR blog (you have to let me know you did it!).

Second, hold your tongue to the left, blink three times while hopping around on one foot, chanting, "I want to win the giveaway" 800 times.

See, it's pretty easy, and I'll leave the giveaway open through the weekend, and we'll close it out on Monday, at 10 PM CENTRAL time! The winner can use their gift certificate at any of the over 200 CSN stores, including pet supplies.

For Swedish Vallhund content, Darby would like to suggest that the winner use their gift card toward a purchase of this fit-for-a-princess chaise lounge, and have it shipped directly to her!

For those who liked the little white ex-pens I used for my puppy pens, well, those came from CSN.

Good luck, the winner will be chosen at random, and announced by Tuesday morning!

*Also, please remember you may have shipping charges, or if the winner is from Canada, international fees.

I like pendant lights, so this track lighting kit would do:

I don't like the canister lights so I really liked www.csnlighting.com/george-kovacs-by-minka-P4078-467-gvk1217.htm. This is an 8 light bronze fixture. If you prefer they also have www.csnlighting.com/george-kovacs-by-minka-P4078-084-gvk1216.html, it's the same thing only in brushed nickel. If 8 lights is too big for your room they have similar ones with 5 lights. If I were buying it for my house I would do the brushed nickel, it is my favorite.

I'm just not into track lighting, so I'll just say, "PICK ME!"

I want to know if Sam holding his tongue out to the left and doing the Cardi hop while barking incessantly qualifies me?

Since, I'm feeling incredibly "GREEDY", I'll say "PICK ME". (Tongue in mouth and ass in chair with my fingers on the keyboard the only thing moving.). :-)

P.S. Poor lighting means you can't see as much dog hair....isn't that supposed to be a good thing. LOL.

My opinion is 98% of the lights look so sterile and plain. I don't know what your room looks like, but you said you wanted something new...change....keep clean lines so you can go in several different directions, but utilize something with style - something that can go with multiple re-decorations (from deco to oriental). I think these would do just that http://www.csnlighting.com/LBL-Lighting-HS307-X-LBL4600.html

And just because you're tall doesn't mean you can't have lights that hang down. Put them in groupings out of your direct walking path, and just don't have them hang super far. I think these would look cool as a grouping with different lengths!

I'm not a track lighting kind of gal but the pendant lights are interesting. And of course I want you to PICK ME!

Seems like it would be nice for a small, low ceiling room.

I loved the track lighting we installed in our old house. Now you've got me thinking about it in the new house!! Hum, kitchen, bathroom, dog room!

Here's my suggestion-an eco friend kit. Stainless is clean, looks nice and can be used in just about any decorating style.

Good luck in your final decision!
