Hunt for the perfect bits and pieces...

This past year me and my hubby had a lot of work done to our home to upgrade the living standard and make the whole house a bit more "ours". One area that we are really pleased with is our living room. We had our carpet ripped out and replaced with this lovely wooden flooring:

It makes the whole room look so much lighter and elegant! Well, one little problem remained, our living room is an open plan one that incorporates the dining room at the other end and we are still looking for the perfect dining room furniture to bring it up to the rest of the room. What we have at the moment is mainly ikea and it's ok, but we are still looking around for the perfect ones! So if you see anything really cool, that works with this lovely stripy floor (it's a mix of different wood types by the way!) please let me know!

Now to something really cool:
I was approached by a lovely lady from CSN stores and given the opportunity to give away a $40 gift certificate for their online stores. This is mainly for my blog visitors based in the US and Canada (sorry to the others!) and if you want a chance to get your hands on them, please post about this giveway on your blog and direct your readers here and leave a comment! I will announce the winner on the 6th September (my oldest sons 6th birthday!) and will pass your details on to Jess from CSN who'll sort your certificate for you! Good luck everyone!
