2 Years! Giveaway!

Posted by on Mar 18, 2013 in *Some Kitchen Stuff* | 54 Comments

 







Some Kitchen Stories is officially 2 years old! So much has changed in two years. New apartments (both), new city (me), new hubby (Nicole), new puppy (Nicole)- lots of adventures in between… and stories… and baked goods…. mostly baked goods…. so many baked goods….

Of course, what fun is a party without PRESENTS! And as is our wont (I should use that word more often. Note to self) we want to give those presents to YOU. Because without you, we’d be talking to ourselves about cake once a week. Thank you for reading and commenting and chatting with us and letting us get to know you (and your blogs!)

Introducing the 2 Years! Giveaway!  Nicole has thoughtfully curated a list of desirable kitchen items and a lucky reader will win the item of her choice! Enter by commenting with your top TWO picks and we’ll choose a winner at random on Friday to win those two things!







1. Apron, Anthropologie

2. Butter Dish, Anthropologie 

3. Pitcher, Anthropologie

4. Enamel Spoons, West Elm

5. Market Bag, West Elm

6. Honey Pot, West Elm

7. Rolling Pin, West Elm

Dates: Monday, March 18 to Friday, March 22, 2013 (contest ends 12am EST on the 23nd)

How to Enter: Just leave a comment with your two items of choice!

Selecting a Winner:  Winner will be selected on Saturday March 23 using random.org, a random generator. The winner will be notified by email and will have until Monday to respond. If the winner doesn’t respond to the winning notification email, another winner will be chosen.

Boring/Horrible Disclaimers: You must be 18+ to enter. We will only be shipping within the continental United States.  SKS reserves the right to disallow comment submissions for the following reasons:

  • Any rude or obscene comments will not be approved. (But I will laugh at them silently before deleting them.)
  • All spam comments will not be approved. (Again, some of these make me laugh. But they will not be approved.)

    Enamel Spoons – I never seem to have enough- and the Honey Pot seem pretty awesome to me. Happy 2 years. I love getting your blog posts in my email. Nicole, you’re photos are an inspiration, as I am trying to get into photography myself.

    HAPPY TWO YEARS!

    I would love that apron and the spoons…. no, the pitcher. No, the spoons. Or the honey pot. NO! SPOONS! AND APRON!

    Final answer.

    Honey Pot! I’ve wanted a honey pot since for ever! It’d be the best place to store my favorite, Wildflower! And I could never have enough market bags! That one is beautiful and I’d love to fill it up with fresh fruits and veggies.

    Happy Two Years ladies, love your blog, ideas and photos <3

    Numbers 1 and 5 go straight to my heart. I’ve wanted an apron since the first time I saw Julia Child wearing one. Although she wore hers backwards so she could wipe her hands on her butt. I do that too! And the market bag is simply simple and perfect to carry my fresh and local produce home from the local growers and farmers markets. I’m not a woman of fashion. These items just might change that!

    Congratulations on two years, and thanks for the giveaway! I’m always so excited to see a new post up here.

    My choices would definitely be #1: apron and #3: pitcher. With those two items, I feel like I could host a brunch in style!

    Congratulations, and happy anniversary! The true testament to how well done your blog is done is that I am a culinary klutz, and I still was drawn in by the words and pictures that enticed me.

    I was drawn to both the apron and the pitcher.

    Here’s to many more words and pictures!
