Style at Home Magazine Subscription WINNERS!
Firstly, I would like to say thanks for all the entries! They provided endless entertainment for me and whoever happened to be around me while I was reading them. Many of the responses were read over the phone to my mom, Betty, who in between obsessing over her new ice cube maker, laughed and laughed.
Congratulations to all the winners of Style at Home Magazine subscriptions!
If you see your name and a portion of your comment, send me your full name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org so I can forward them to the fine folks at Style at Home.
HERE WE GOOOOO …… Starting off with my *personal* favourite. I debated and DEBATED over this. There were at least 20 entries that were FANTASTIC, but I kept coming back to this one particular comment because for some reason … it spoke to me. Plus it made me laugh out loud every time I read it. You may read the comment and think … Uh … O.K. … whatever, Karen. But I loved it.
The first year long subscription and the official “Karen’s Favourite Comment” goes to …
“Can I hide my boyfriend? He insists on wearing Lee carpenter jeans, which I don’t think they even make anymore. I think he fights hobos for them. I’m sorry, “unfortunately indigent vagrants.”
The remaining 9 randomly selected winners in no particular order are:
“I would definitely hide my new table saw that lives in the corner of our dining room.”
– “I would hide… ummmm… all my copies of Canadian House and Home!”
– “I’d also try to hide by basement neighbor because everyone can hear his toots in our apartment.”
(Leslie – I’m so GLAD you made the random draw … this tooting neighbour was one of my favourite comments)
– “I know it goes against logic but I would hide my fireplace. I love my art deco home – but sadly, the last owners ripped out the original fireplace and replaced it with a stone monster that belongs more in a cottage. When I first got the house, the son of the previous owner told me all about the decorating approach of his parents. He started by saying, “I have no idea why the real estate agent made us take it all out! You should have seen the beautiful Robert Bateman prints that they hung over that beautiful fireplace!” That, my friend, should say it all.”
“I would hide the green painter’s tape that still exists around our *not-painted-after-2-months-baseboards* – not sure it would be camera friendly.”
“I’d hide the rat”.
“Easy… I would hide my children!! Don’t get me wrong, I love them dearly but really! I would be nice enough to farm them out for the day …”
“I would have to hide my house.”
“I would probably just hide myself “
And guess what? If you didn’t win, you still have another shot at winning something from Style at Home. In the very near future I’ll be giving away copies of the issue my home is featured in! Details soon!
Thanks again for entering and congratulations to all the winners! Oh! And special thanks to Style at Home for the subscriptions and for forcing me to finally paint my kitchen cupboards.
