Giveaway: $50 Gift Card to Kirkland's!


When Kirkland's contacted me about reviewing one of their mirrors I jumped at the chance! I'd always been a big fan. When they told me they would include a $50 gift card to their store to giveaway to a reader too, I got even more excited!


I picked the Weston Mirror to review. I've had a bit of an obsession as of late with sunburst mirrors and I thought this one was a really cool take on that.  I also thought that the bronze coloring would look good in my bathroom. I had an empty corner that just needed "something"..... I love how the mirror looks in there!  It showed up quickly and packaged carefully and looks as good in "real" life as it did online.

I've been browsing their site as of late and have fallen in love with this cabinet - I think it would make a great night stand




and this circle mirror... isn't it cool??

Kirklands has generously offered to give away a $50 gift card to a lucky reader! You can use it in their stores OR online.


Okay here's what you need to do to enter to win the $50 Gift Card to Kirkland's!


Leave a comment here telling me the home project your most excited to get going on this year. Is it organizing? Redecorating? What?

For a 2nd entry you can hop on over to Kirkland's website and tell me what you'd put the $50 towards!

Leave a separate comment for each item you do.

official rules here


Giveaway open Monday January 2nd 2012 to Friday January 6th 2012 at Midnight Eastern time

Wow! I just organized my room/bathroom this week too! I'm also moving onto the playroom next! My goal is to organize the whole house, one room at a time. And keep it organized!

Cecilia said...

I just spent the day organizing my pantry and bedroom closets. Next up would be working in the guest bedrooms, they need more pictures and such.

Michele said...

How did I not know that Kirkland's had an online store???

My house needs lots of finishing touches, so I'm starting with my mantle area then moving slowly until it starts to feel more homey.

melissamo1 said...

I'd get the Thomas floor lamp. I could REALLY use a lamp!!!

The Clines said...

We need a new closk for our entry. The Hotel du Palais Clock would be perfect!

Jessica said...

I could go for one of their nice floor lamps. I can never get my house bright enough! It's one of those houses that doesn't have any overhead lights in rooms (except the kitchen). Just floor lamps for us.

(un)Deniably Domestic said...

Like you, I am cleaning and organizing. Spring cleaning comes at the new year for me during the longest break I have during the teaching year. I just spent three afternoons on the master bedroom suite. Three days! Oh, my. By bedtime, all of my personal laundry will be done and I will head up to the studio in the morning to tackle the post Christmas disaster. Thank you for the fun giveaway. ~Kelly

sherryt said...

I would like to redo our kitchen this year. Thanks for the chance to win!

♥Duff said...

I'm really looking forward to throwing things away. really. I've got too many things I've been holding onto for no reason other than "just in case I need it." So long, crap! wa-hoo!

Cecilia said...

There are so many lovely things! I would love to get the butler pantry table, the mosaic balls (I have the perfect bowl for them), and a pair of the bloom pillows in slate blue or maybe chocolate. :-)

sydneescraftymommie said...

I was actually at Kirklands today! I love that store! We just bought a new house on December 22nd and so my decorating needs are severe at this point. With a new house I am wanting new decor.

Erin said...

Our foyer has been ignored while I have focused on the rest of the house, and I am determined that it will finally get its due!

Carla said...

This year the whole inside is getting a new coat of paint! I'm like a kid at a candy store picking out colors. Whoo-Hoo!

♥Duff said...

hmm..there's a lot to choose from at Kirkland! I wouldn't mind the Blue Distressed Chest along with a set of Birds and Branches bookends!

Carla said...

If I were so lucky to win, I would get the metallic bronze vase, set of 3. It would look awesome on my bathroom counter.

Bonnie said...

I am planning on orginization and my dear, dear husband said he wants to do some redecorating. Gosh I love that man.

robin said...

I've got a new sewing room, and it needs to be painted before I can get it all organized. I'm pretty excited about it. :)

robin said...

I'd put it towards some wall art. :)

Nancy Elizabeth Carey said...

guest bedroom needs some sprucing! awesome giveaway!

Chris said...

hmmmm......I think maybe it might be something for an empty diningroom wall. How nice of Kirkland's to do this!

Julie P said...

I have plans to freshen up the basement family room with paint and new carpet.

Julie P said...

I would probably feed my candle addiction with a mercury hurricane and some jar candles.

Bonnie said...

Hi again,
just went browsing I would put it toward some of there amazing wall art.

Barbara said...

My project for this Month is going to be the master bathroom. Paint for sure, but what else? I think I better head over to Kirklands and figure out what I Have To Have !

Pat V. said...

I want to turn the guest room from a storage facility back into a guest room!

Chris said...

Oooooooh....the Brooke console table really caught my eye!

Pat V. said...

I would definitely be purchasing a lamp! There are a lot of good ones to choose from.

Barbara said...

me again, back from Kirklands (online) I need to remove the great big mirror from the master bath wall, and replace it with 2 of the Oval Black ones ! Now I have to look up how to remove a great big bathroom mirror !

Catherine said...

My main house job is a HUGE purge. When that's done, I'm planning on redoing our entryway.

Melody said...

Realistically- I WILL get the sewing room and basement cleaned out and organized but I really really hope to start on my kitchen. We went by the Habitat for Humanity Restore and I found a cabinet that matches my kitchen cabinets. I"m wanting to add that to the otherside of the kitchen. Then new counter tops and a new floor.

James-Linda said...

WE'RE IN A NEW HOME,SO I'D ENJOY DOING MORE WALL DECOR+WOULD LOVE TO USE SOME OF THEIR WALL SCONES!
THANKS FOR SHARING!

James-Linda said...

I MIGHT SPEND ALL OF THE $$ ON CANDLES ♥
THANK YOU!

MJ said...

I really would like to update some things in my living room. I love going into Kirklands, and lucky me, they just opened one up by my house!!

Melody said...

I've had my eye on the 5 shelf unit that has the wicker drawers. With three of those I could nicely convert the closet to a very neat storage area for my sewing stuff and maybe let my son use a drawer for his art stuff. Funny how his art table is sharing my sewing room but it does make a lovely cutting area.

Jessica said...

i really want to update our bedroom! It needs some cute things!

Jackie said...

I finished remodeling my home in March and haven't found the right mirror for the red bathroom. It needs to be gold or bronze and I'm sure I can find one at Kirkland's. Thanks for a chance at the giveaway.

diane said...

I'm just getting ready to turn an unused bedroom into my sewing studio. I can use some storage units.

diane said...

Well, my husband told me that after Christmas we would be redoing the bathrooms in our house since those are the last things to get updated, but I'm not sure if that's going to happen now. I have been planning on putting a big mirror in our guest bathroom so I will have to go to Kirklands website and see what they've got. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Amber

Amber said...

Oh, they have a lot of great artwork as well! I love the branch swirl canvas print and the chocolate silhouette canvas print. They would go perfect in our bathroom ~ right next to my new black and tan checked shower curtain! Thanks for the chance to win!

I am working on my living room right now. Our computer table is a mess! So I am moving it to a closet where it can be hidden away. Hopefully I can set up a system to deal with our paper clutter also!

brandi said...

Cool I am so glad I'm not the only one out there cleaning like crazy ready for a new start. I am working on my upstairs loft & bedroom but I promised my 12 yr old daughter we would redecorate after christmas & we were just in Kirklands last week & she had a fit & a list of what she wanted which was great! She is autistic so its very hard for her to communicate on likes or dislikes but she started gathering things up & I told her to wait because we were not quite ready yet. Thanks for the opportunity to win a great gift card!!

I'm in the process of trying to make my home "pretty." I've never been a decorator of any kind, but I want things to look nice now. We are doing a complete new look in our music and school room areas. I'd like to say goodbye to the mint green carpeting and walls and hello to something, dare I say, elegant?
