I Win, You Win!

I know everyone loves' to win a giveaway! 
I was so lucky to recently win a great giveaway from Kathe with an E.  A coupon for a free Mrs. Smiths Signature Deep Dish pie and (get this) 
a $50 Williams-Sonoma gift card!  Yippee!
I won all this before Christmas but you know how crazy my life has been.  I kept looking at the plaid plates but they were sooooo expensive I just couldn't bring myself to buy just two of them for my $50.  After Christmas I was hoping they would be on sale...but they are gone from the website.
So shopping I went and this is what I bought...it arrived the other day!
Look at this amazing grill pan!  It was on sale and I was so excited to get this!  I will be doing some chicken and maybe even a steak in this pan! 
I also found this...
It is this cool pancake pen....you fill it with batter (can even be mixed in it) and you can then do initials, or fill in those great cookie cutters or pancake molds with it.  I will take it on my next trip to visit Tiger!  I think it will be lots of fun!
Thank you Kathe!  

So If I win, I think you need to win!!
How about a Valentine's Giveaway!
How is this for some random stuff!
I went through my Valentine's bin and had some extra things
 I want to share with you!
This frame is so pretty and I think a crafty girl could do something with it!  I also love this large coffee cup and saucer from Starbucks!
Valentine Cookie Cutters
and this gorgeous glass bowl with a shiny silver rim.

To win this giveaway leave a comment
 telling me what you love about Valentine's day!
That's it.  This is only open to USA and Canadian followers (sorry).  You must have a way to be contacted if you win or I will pull another name.
It's nice if you are a follower but not a requirement!
The giveaway will close on Jan 18th and I'll announce the winner on Sunday's Gratitude Party!

Wishing You JOY,

Linda

Congrats on your win, Linda. I have no sweetie so Valentine's is "not my thing", :( but this is a really great assortment of heart goodies. Some lucky gal will be very happy with this win. xo

Kathe said...

You were a worthy winner dear! I LOVE the pan you chose Linda! I love Calphalon and I have been eyeing a pan like that for myself! Mr. B would love that pancake pen! He's the official waffle cook on the weekends. He'd have so much fun! What a haul some lucky winner of your Valentine's Day prize pack will get! Made even more special because they come from you :-)

Kathe said...

Oh and what I love about Valentine's Day? It's the day before my birthday lol! Mr. B can wait a day and get me sweet gifts, aka chocolate, 50% off lol!

Hi Linda! What a lovely giveaway! I love Valentine's Day because of all of the hearts and of course love. It brings back memories of being a little girl making my shoebox all decorated up for exchanging Valentine's at school.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Valentine's Day gives us the opportunity to tell those we love how we feel about them from children to adults and even our pets. This is a sweet giveaway and I would love to win. Thank you.

I have a comment about the pancake batter bottle. You can also put cucake batter in it and use it when you fill the cupcake pan.

It would probably work well that way, especially if you were doing mini cupcakes.

Please do not enter my name in the drawing. Thanks!

One thing I like is that it is a holiday I grew up with, so I will never forget the date. And "his" birthday is the day before, so I never forget that either.

What do I love about Valentine's day...well truth be told we don't really do much for Valentine's day it is kind of hit and miss but I do love getting things to send to our granddaughter (the others were just born) because she loves getting mail. She gets so excited.

ImSoVintage said...

What a fun giveaway. I love talking to my sweet grandchildren best on Valentines Day. Love your new pan :)

Chatty Crone said...

Linda - I have one of those grill pans and it is one of my most favorite pieces in my kitchen - great choice!

Susan said...

Congrats on your win, Linda! Nice pan!

Looks like you are having a sweet giveaway. Can you put my name in the hat?

I love a LOT of things about Valentine's day. Love decorating the house, sending Valentines, getting them in the mail, making and decorating heart-shaped cookies, and putting a pretty red tablecloth on the kitchen table with a crocheted white one on top.

Oh, and being with my honey, too. Susan

Hmm...what do I love about Valentine's Day? As cliche and mushy this may sound; I didn't care for Valentine's Day until I met my hubby. I had never truly known love until him. Valentine's Day before him just seemed so silly and pointless. Now, I see it's true meaning. What a lovely day to celebrate your true love for all people close to you. (I don't think Valentine's Day is specifically for your significant other) We celebrate our love for each other everyday, but Valentine's Day is special. It's an uninterupted day of love. :)

Hi Linda, my favourite thing about V alentine's are the spicy little cinnamon heart candies. Cheap date, eh? J

Susan said...

What I love about Valentines is the whole Romantic idea it represents. I love the cutsie little Valentines it brings back memories of when I was a Child!
Take care Ms. Linda!

Debbie@Mountain Breaths said...

Congratulations on your win! I bought that cool pancake pen, and can't wait to use it for cupcakes. I always get batter all over the muffin tin, so this should help. LOL

Thank you for the chance to win. Our anniversary is on Valentine's Day.
