of mice and men (giveaway!)

“the best-laid plans of mice and men often go…”
Somewhere.
I haven’t decided where yet.
Maybe they all go to a secluded Caribbean island and drink cocktails with little umbrellas in them…
Maybe they get sucked up in high school textbooks, like my brain has been for the last four days…
Or maybe they just vanish all-together, with nothing but a whiff of fairy-dust left behind…

Speaking of fairy-dust, my friends over at CSN decided to sprinkle a bit on this little blog, and give you a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to any one of their online stores! 
Now that’s what I’m talking about… Forget Steinbeck…

Because I seem to want to talk about fairy-dust tonight, let’s take a look at what other kinds, flavors, and brands CSN offers.
Confession: Lately, I’m having an obsession with wall decals.
Let’s face it – I have this giganormous, plain white wall that’s literally screaming for a bit of bling.
And CSN delivers – on their site for modern decor, they have an amazing selection of cool wall decals!
Take a look….

{love love love}
{how cute!}

  3. What a cool Giveaway! I would LOVE to be entered. My latest obsession is Angora Rabbits. I'm actually in the process of buying one!

  4. I would get these cool wall decals! http://www.csnstores.com/NoJo-7020100-EV1317.html I share a room with my little sister but my side of the room has about 20 pictures (from old calendars) of COWS! These decals are the cutest!

  10. Well, since you asked. I'm working on a research paper currently, about mollusks. Mom chose the topic, not me. πŸ™‚ However, I'm finding learning about the octopus is really quite interesting! Some are over 15 feet long. Each has his own favorite food: some like scallops best, others prefer heart cockles or red rock crabs. They can weigh up to over 100 pounds!
    There. πŸ™‚

  11. I would get…a photo album. To find: look under decor, then decorative accents, then photo albums. πŸ™‚ I take a ton of pictures (over 100 per month) so a photo album would be perfect!
