Gimme a Giveaway Winner: Milk & Cookies Canada & Rug Deals

Last Friday, we asked you to tell us your favorite afternoon snack in honor of the Milk and Cookies Canada giveaway.

My favorite afternoon snack lately is a small handful of pistachios.  So good, it’s hard to eat only a few.  The winner of one Milk and Cookies Canada pillow, Kristen eats a granola bar in the afternoon, saving cake for an after dinner dessert.  That’s my kind of gal!

Kristen, this Friday the 13th is your lucky day!

But that’s not all, folks.

In our survey, we asked you to answer 10 questions to help improve the blog.  One question was “What would you like to see less of?”  A few readers requested fewer Etsy related posts, others didn’t care for giveaways, and two readers didn’t like that we used a post to only announce giveaway winners.  I hear that.  So, we’re making a change, starting today.  When I announce giveaway winners, I’ll also share a random snippet.  Notice I said random.  Anything that’s floating in my head, really.  This could be window shopping, a recipe (yep, had a few requests for those, too), inspiration pictures, Pinterest ideas, a round-up of a particular item (like soap pumps), anything.  Basically, you’ll get to see how my mind works.  Scary, isn’t it?

Today, I thought I’d share a few rugs I liked while browsing Overstock.com.  Like this 8 by 10 chevron rug for $151.99.

Or this 5 by 8 wool rug for $177.99.

And this 5 by 8 foot Ikat rug for $167.99.

How ’bout a wool Moroccan number like this for $169.99.

This grey ombre rug by Martha Stewart is only $170.99.

Finally, take a look at this olive and ivory wool rug for $171.99.

Which one is your favorite?  Like that every other Friday you’ll get to peek in to the insanity in my mind?  Have any suggestions for content?  Send us your recommendations!

Please note:  We were not compensated for this post, we just like these rugs and wanted to share with you.

  1. I LOVE the IKAT rug too and I’m in the process of looking for a rug right now, so PERFECT timing! It’s the right colors for me too. On my way to go “possibly” order it 🙂
    I missed the survey, but agree with the results and I look forward to seeing how your brain is working or what you’re thinkiing about 🙂 Thanks!

    1. Glad the rugs are a hit!

      Thanks!

  2. I love looking through your etsy faves! I don’t want to spend time browsing etsy, but enjoy seeing the things you’ve highlighted, and if I really like something then I can check out the shop it came from. I hope you don’t discontinue posting them from time to time!

  3. I agree with Sarah! You always have some cute things that would take me hours to find. I bought something through one of the posts once.

    1. No worries, Sarah and Diana. Etsy favs aren’t going anywhere. I love to share great products and promote small shops, so it’s the perfect combo. But, I am taking comments into consideration, so if you have ideas or preferences, definitely take a minute or two to share your thoughts! Please?

      Thanks!

  4. Glad to hear you will still be sharing Etsy favs, bcus if I don’t have the time to look, I can still see what you found that is cute! I enjoy that! I love overstock too and I like the navy rug for $177. Added to my wish list, will have to wait until we are in the market for a new one! Thanks for your blog!

    1. Hi Jackie, It seems I’m not the only one who likes the Etsy round ups, so they’re sticking around. 🙂 Glad you’re liking the rugs (and our blog!!)

      Happy weekend!
      Amanda

  5. i think the olive and ivory rug is to die for! And if you are looking for a new rug, it matches your taste/home 🙂 (what bits and pieces I have seen through the blog)
