Enter here daily through Sept. 30 to win a new Shaw Floors HGTV Home area rug of any size

rug for a bungalowUpdate: Contest now closed. Emily was the lucky winner — chosen by random number generator. She responded to my email and is choosing her rug. I’ll check back with her later to see if I can get a photo. Thanks, everyone, and also to Shaw Floors!…

Tracy was the winner of the special summer giveaway of a new Shaw Floors HGTV area rug — and she chose this Juneau design (above) for her bungalow. It looks great… and do I spy with my little eye a cutie petutie pooch on that sofa? He’ll sure be happy for a cozy rug on the floor.

Readers, I promised another giveaway, and here it is. Through midnight Sept. 30, you can enter here daily to win an area rug of any size from the new line. (You can read more about my trip to the launch event here.) I loved everyone’s poems last time, so I encourage you leave a comment that’s fun and rhyme-y. But, if you’re not game for that, just comment saying gimme. Note: I pick the winner by Random Number Generator, so while creativity will be admired and applauded by me and all your peers, you’re ode-ing for the journey, not the prize. U.S. and Canada only. (And remember that separately, you can also enter to win Shaw’s daily giveaway on their Facebook page, by voting in their 30 Days of HGTV home design competition.) Good luck, and thanks to Shaw for donating this prize in conjunction with the introduction of their new HGTV Home lineup.

    could use a rug
    for the cat puke stains are too much
    feeling helpless I shrug
    and as such
    can only bug you
    about a new rug

    Shaw rug
    Mod, marvelous
    Yearning, dreaming, scheming
    I will win it

    Doesn’t rhyme but it’s a cinquain.

    Tried to post this earlier but it looks like my post didn’t show up. Not trying to double dip, but I have had a lot of trouble posting these last couple weeks.

    I’ve never entered an online contest but thought I had nothing to loose and everything to gain. I’ve never heard of Shaw rugs either so how exciting to be apart of this contest.

    Good luck to everyone.
