Le Creuset Giveaway

Because I am selfless I bring you this giveaway. Because I love you all more than my own cooking pleasure, I bring you this giveaway. Because I believe in products with longevity, I bring you this giveaway. Because I can, I do. Thinking of this giveaway I was trying to justify the expense of some household items. When my husband and I look for things we know we plan to keep for a long time we research, we save our money, we plan and think. We don't usually run out and buy the cheapest we can find nor do we make it our intention to purchase the most expensive product available. We look at quality, customer reviews, recommendations from friends and, ahem, how much money we happen to have. We also look around our home to see which products we know and love. Which items have stood the test of time. And which ones aren't worth it. We have a TV that was mid range in price, big enough to see from across the room and it has lasted 5 years. We have my grandmothers table put away for now while we have little boys but it's 70 years old, solid wood and gorgeous. We have bar stools at our counter that are 30 years old and going strong. We have a brand new hunk of junk coffee maker I would never recommend to ANYONE. We look at past purchases and then grudgingly spend the money.

Last year for my birthday I received two quality presents that have made my cooking life a dream. A 6qt professional KitchenAid mixer and a Le Creuset 6 qt French Oven. Both highly recommended from friends, online and personally, we had a small Le Creuset skillet that we both loved and wanted more of. We have since purchased more Le Creuset and plan on keeping it for about FOREVER! It's amazing and durable and gorgeous and will last a lifetime, the extra money spent was money well spent. We will never have need for another French Oven and if we do it's guaranteed. For life. That's quality. It's worth the extra money. It's not supporting a disposable lifestyle, slave style labor and the lust for cheap goods. When you can find quality save up your money and buy it. Or win it.

Round French Oven, 2 qt.
Right here!

I'll give you a moment.

Better? Okey Dokey then. 

Yes, pick your jaw up off the floor. I am giving away a 2 3/4 quart Le Creuset Round French Oven in Flame Orange. Enamel over cast iron beauty. Flame orange, did I say that already?

    3. If I could have anything from CSN it would be this sofa, since my beautiful new Forestville sofa had to be thrown away due to a "maintenance" problem in my building. Waaa. And the cor is exactly me. Maybe in another 5 years...

    8. Oh my gracious! How generous of you. I have one LC piece, the 5 qt. dutch oven in Kiwi. I love it and want to add on to my collection. Slowly, but surely. :) If I could pick anything from the CSN website, and money was not an option, it'd be the 14 piece All Clad Copper Core set. I came close to buying them this year, but decided my Calphalon could give me another good couple years.

    23. Thanks for visiting my blog and your sweet words! And...while I'm here I might as well enter myself in the running for this orange beauty. Because it's the thing to do. To be nice. Or something. ;)

      Anyhoo, if I could choose any one thing from the CSN stores, my head would explode because all the products want to come home with me. However, I'd be happy with a Blendtec super blender, like the total home version in RED. Woohoo!

      Great giveaway! :)

    65. I am a new follower and I totally believe in good timing and good luck! I have fantasized about Le Crueset cookware for a while, but haven't saved up my pennies to purchase one yet. My color of choice is the flame orange because it is my happy color and I have pops of it all over my house. My 40th birthday is tomorrow-March 29th-the day of the giveaway. My hubby and friends threw me a surprise party last night with a French theme-he even took the time to make an Eiffel tower out of white lights! Thanks for your generosity and the chance to win!

      Bonne Nuit!
