CSN REVIEW....

CSN has been so generous to all of us in BLOGLAND by offering one of two things...
A FREE GIFT CARD to one of our readers..
OR, your choice of an item; or two; and then present a review.
I am doing a review of items I ordered from .CSN ...
and, GET THIS....
I ordered, online, on October 6th and received my order on the 8th...
two days...
I am so impressed...
I am also impressed that they have over 200 stores with so many things to choose from,
you just can go nuts. 
*
I was wanting TWO things for
Sweet Nothings Cottage...
*
The FIRST thing I really wanted was
a larger light fixture for my long, narrow entry hall.....

I am almost 100 percent sure my lighting was put in by the builder in 1957....
AND it's waaay  too small for that long space...
*
It couldn't hang  too low since we would be walking beneath it...
I looked and looked and looked and then...
I FOUND THIS ONE....THIS one would work just fine
and it's so so pretty.
I think this one will look good in the space...
I am not really a prism chandy type person...a little more POTTERY BARN look suits me right now.
*
MR. SWEET has it all ready to hang...probably soon, since PATIENCE is not one of my strong suites !!
*
maybe tomorrow....???.....pretty please with sugar on it....:)
 I fell in love with this large clock....
It just is the perfect color and style for my living room...
I had one in this very spot for about 3 years and one day,
I moved it into my dining room, over the mantle....and loved it.
*
Don't you think it goes really good in this spot?
*
We really missed a clock in that space...
we looked there 50 times a day....and no clock..
WELL...THERE'S ONE THERE NOW
and we are lovin' it !!
**
I had a CSN gift card that I could use in exchange for a review of the products.
I am very happy with both the light fixture and the awesome clock..
My gift card was for $65.00 and I paid an additional $5.00 for both my goodies..and no shipping charge.
Go over to their site and browse. 
They have thousands and thousands of wonderful products.
...and free shipping on most items.
They have ANYthing for your home...
mirrors, shelves, tables, baskets, clocks, lamps, mattresses, light fixtures, curtains...
the list goes on and on...
TRY 'EM...
YOU'LL LIKE 'EM...

Hope you have a sassy day...

I am really impressed!I love the light fixture and clock. I have heard all the bloggers talk about CSN but never knew what it was. Now I do and I will head over and look. Thank you for sharing!

Kathleen said...

I love your light and your clock.
I bought 2 hall lights from them last spring when Artie from Color Outside the Lines asked us to.

Enjoy your new goodies! The clock looks perfect there, and my lights got put up last month after a long wait. It was hard for dh to do it, but finally did!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Hey BJ! CSN is great-lovin' your new goodies and I know that light will look fab once it's in place:@)

CHERI said...

Would you believe I had never heard of CSN before I began blogging a few months ago???? I think they may be working with me on a giveaway soon! I'm excited!

Stacy said...

Mom, I love looking at your blog so much! I want to come over and take a nap on your couch everyday for a week! (and let you fix me lunch). I miss you!

Halie Santos - Dayo said...

Gorgeous Clock...Isn't funny how we will come accustom to something so that even yrs later we look for the clock on the wall lol.

Good luck getting the new light up soon.

Ann said...

Nice clock...

I'd go crazy when the time comes where I can't see a clock in its familiar place in my house...

And the light fixture ain't bad too...

Pat said...

These are both wonderful, BJ! I am going to have to shop CSN. Looks like great things there and your delivery time was fabulous!

Been trying to catch up this morning. Slow getting around to bloggy visits, this week. This trip to the lake has been great for both of us. I have slept better than I have in months...enjoying all our drives and best of all...g'kids will be here tomorrow.

Your new clock is fabulous! La

Deb said...

Love that clock. I would put it right in my office. I enjoyed your previous post, too. You do 'change it up' very well. Did you know that the Chilian rescue was on the 13th day of the 10th month in the 10th year which added up to 33? Hugs, Deb

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

You picked wonderful items BJ! I love them both.

I am doing my review next week. I was amazed at how fast the item arrived!!
Hugs,

Hi there. You don't know me, but I saw a comment of yours over on Aunt Amelia's Attic blog. I see where you are getting frustrated with the blogger editor. I thought I'd do a little random act of kindness and let you know that I recently posted about my own frustrations with the blogger editor and have switched over to using Windows Live Writer. It is much easier and there is no playing around with the formatting either, in case you want to move around your text. Photo uploading is a snap, either from your computer or a link to a photo web site such as Flickr. If you use an Apple computer, Live Writer won't work, however.

Donna said...

The clock and light fixture look great, BTW!

Curtains In My Tree said...

I see you shop at T J Maxx & Marshalls. Just love those stores for home goods. I love the new clock. There is no CSN stores in my area so haven't been there.
It is so fun to find new blogs and read all that is going on your blog world.

That's a great clock. I really like it. Hope you'll stop by. Jane F.

♥ Sonny ♥ said...

Oh my I love that clock and I think where you put it is just PERFECT..
Those are my kinda light fixtures too.. I dont do well with the Bling Bling chandys lol.. I'm sorta plain I guess..
I wanted to thank you so much for visitng to see my kitchen and it tickles me pink that you like it.
The dish rack was done in my art program so I could SEE if I really want one before I go out to the building and start cutting wood and making it. Same with the glass doors I added. I'll build the frames and add glass so I can save the original doors in case I change my mind which I am so prone to do:)
Now, I have a question.. I noticed the lettered backboard on your cabinet you just posted .. Do you think that would make a good backsplash for my kitchen counter. ? I could stain and letter the wood and then poly it and add the top piece of molding. I really like how yours looks.
cant wait to see your light fixtures up on the ceiling..
Have a wonderful weekend.

Carol said...

BJ,
Great light fixture!! (Patience isn't one of my virtues either...esp when it comes to changing out something around here..and I need Mister to do it)
The clock looks terrific! We have one next to the mantle, since the mantel has a TV on it...*sigh*

Susan said...

Your Clock is awesome!! I love the light fixture!!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

BJ, I can't wait to see that light fixture hanging. It is so pretty, and it is going to be perfect in that spot. Love the clock too. What great shopping you did! Thank you for linking these to Favorite Things. laurie

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Hi BJ, I love,love the clock!! The light fixture will look wonderful in your hall. Don't you just love CSN?
xoxo, Sherry

ButterYum said...

I have a similar clock over the mantle in our family room and every now and then I've thought about relocating it to another spot in the house, but I know we'd be lost without it hanging in its current location. Funny how we get so used to things in certain places.

Love, love, love CSN, and you're right, they have lightning fast shipping.

Have a great weekend.
