I have entered dozens of blog giveaways since I started my blog as it’s a great way to support other blogs (by following them) and of course there are always great prizes to be won.  I lamented in comments on other blogs  about how I never win anything (cue the violins) which is true.  The only thing I have ever won is a pencil case in Grade 7 and BTO tickets when I was in high school (yes, I know I am dating myself.)   It’s funny but I had  completely forgotten about those two winnings until I wrote this – the power of writing.  Well, I think the giveaway gods were listening because I won not only one but three giveaways in the past couple of weeks.
First, I won a $100 Homesav gift certificate on Lindsay’s blog.  I bought a few funky Rock my Soul pillows for my daughter and niece.  I have blogged about them in the past and love that they are made with organic cotton.
Then, I won an LG convection range worth $1500– I know, crazy, right? All I did was tweet the giveaway which was being held in conjunction with Style at Home magazine. When I received the messages/tweets saying I had won, I had completely forgotten I had even entered.  I retweeted without really thinking I would win so now I have to figure out what to do with this range!  I have a few ideas though.  See, all that time spent on twitter paid off!
And then this past Monday I won an Address Script from Muse Custom Vinyls via Desire to Decorate.  I have always loved how these add personality to a home’s exterior and I am looking forward to installing mine soon. 
So,  a big thank you to the bloggers and giveaway sponsors!
Homesav has kindly offered one of my lucky readers a gift certificate for $100 to use on their site.  Homesav is a member only site but it only takes a minute to sign up and there are no fees.  They are a Canadian online retailer, based in Toronto, which features home decor items, kitchenware, furniture and more at a great price for sale on their site for 24-96 hours only.  
I was so impressed with the items for sale, pricing and customer service and I know you will be too!
If you live in the Toronto area, you may have caught  one of the Homesav founders on Breakfast Television this morning showcasing some of their items for sale.
In the past, they have had linen ottomans, flatware, cushions, art and table runners for sale on their site.  These items are currently on sale for a limited time and I would be quite happy with any one of them:
