Have you had a chance to take a look at yesterday's post about my entryway redo? The hardest part is always the little details. Like our house numbers, can you see them in the pix? We liked them as soon as we saw them but they were $7 each number, $7 DOLLARS my goodness!!! We passed on them the first time and well... as you can see went back to them in the end and splurged the $7 each and we love them. It was well worth it. The other thing was our light. The house came with this funky pineapple light, which wasnt that bad except it did nothing for me, it really wasnt my taste. So our quest for lights was on. Everytime we stopped at Home Depot I checked out their selection of outdoor lights. I wasnt that impressed, especially for the price. I wish someone had told me about this place before!

They have hundreds and hundreds, infact THOUSANDS of lights to choose from. And they have amazing prices starting at just $5! I couldnt belive my eyes I was like in lighting heaven!

Well, lucky for me I still have my back patio to re-do and have have two lights that need to be replaced. They're old school globes and one of them is cracked. I'm really liking the
but I'm kinda thinking more of a country or nautical feel for the back patio.
They have soooo many choices I dont know what to pick! I honestly have been browsing their site for almost a week now.

So here is it, the long awaited GIVEAWAY!!! I'm very excited about my very first giveaway and I'm honored to have CSN Stores participating.

I love the Mericana One Light Wall Sconce in Old Bronze. I have the perfect place in my entry way of the condo where it could go.

I think though that I might put the gc towards a set of sheets.

I'm probably doing this backwards but I think that the lantern type lighting is fabulous...... it gives me that old school feeling :)

The one that i think would be perfect for your patio is

Maxim Lighting 1025 side outdoor wall latern. It's only $14.11 :) LOVE it!!!

Entry #1.....

I absolutely love love love the

Nuvo 60/1472 Conventry one light wall sconce in classic pewter.

I think that it would be perfect for the replacement of my daugters wall mount that she currently has in her room. We are redectorating it by painting the walls and getting new bedding and this would be the perfect girlie touch.

I would use the GC for any fixture that she picks out to help redecorate her room. (secretly hoping she'll pick the above one)

I would get the Thomas Lighting - SL1034-1 - 1 Light Grape Design Wall Sconce in Polished Brass
SKU #: TL1993, very nice for my hallway or bathroom near the toilet-the wall sconce I have now is just plain yucky lol~
