Update: It’s Thursday noon, and I have just gone through the comments one more time. Eliminated three more – mine and two repeats (moderation issues). Down to 1,018 and That is It. Getting ready to choose via the Random Number Generator… am doing it in an “audited” way for the record. Update: Congratulations to Tracy — our winner!
I came back late Thursday night from my second media program — for the new HGTV Home Shaw Floors line of carpeting, area rugs, and hardwood and laminate flooring. Then on Sunday, I had to whipsaw it out of here for a week’s vacation with DH. He glared at me bigtime when I said I would keep blogging daily even while on vacation. So I rethunk it and decided: Yes, indeed, he deserves my undivided attention. So we got a housesitter to watch Astro and are headed out. No daily dose for the next week — but guess what? The lovely team at Shaw Floors (the company started in 1946, of course!) capped the launch event by telling all 10 bloggers that we could each give away an area rug to one of our readers. So here’s the perfect chance for me to feature this terrific giveaway! For the next 9 days — while I take my first vacation ever from the blog — this will be my top-of-the-blog story. Here are the rules:
- The prize is an area rug of your choice — any size, even 9 x 12! — from the new HGTV Home Shaw Floors line
- To win, just leave a comment below about why you need a rug and where you would put it
- You can enter each and every day — but only one entry per day — that is: up to nine times starting today and continuing through Tuesday, July 26
- U.S. residents only
- I’ll choose the winner by random number generator on Wednesday morning, July 27.
When I return, I also will write more about the HGTV Home Shaw Floors product line and the super mega fun launch event. Meanwhile, you can take a look at all the new rugs and other floor coverings on the Shaw website. The Mod Links rug (shown above) is my favorite – it comes in a number of colorways. In the design competition that comprised the event, my teammate and I used Mod Links in Beige.
Disclosure: Shaw Floors hosted the media preview and paid for my airfare, hotel and meals. They are providing this rug for a free giveaway. In exchange, they did not prescribe any specific writeups or coverage — all commentary is my own.
