Monday starts with a Giveaway Gift Certificate! (Closed)

With a rainy weekend out, and the prospect of great movies to watch in the evening, I wanted to mention that one of them was  North by Northwest. I know it is bad I had not yet seen this movie… especially since I am one of Hitchcock fans , and since I have silent and classic dvd’s  of his movies.

So I was thinking that this could serve me to prepare a GIVEAWAY for this week. Did you listen well? Yes!

The winner will enjoy a $55 Gift Code ready to put towards any of the 200 hundred CSN stores. I visited a few and they have lots of items. I especially enjoyed the dining room chairs they have and I invite you to have a look at their different websites, with thousands of items, from decor to health & fitness, kitchen, baby & kids, rugs…and so many others! To see the list check CSN For you, lovers of vintage, I am sure there are lots of things that will catch your attention.

This My Baby Sams Sweet Dreams throw pillow is very cute. And it reminds me of my conversations on twitter!

This Murray Feiss Augustine Torchiere in Antique Brown is greatly inspired in Art Deco!

They also have many sales and promotions,  I’m sure you are going to love it.

I am picking up a few as you see, and these two others….. Pan Am 70s Original Totes Bag in Blue

  1. OOH,Great question! Oddly,I have already thought about this before.Well, as far as actresses go Rachel McAdams is a terrific actress for Hitchcock films.As far as Actors,Jude Law would do very nicely. Rachel McAdams reminds me of Grace Kelly so beautiful,I hate her!

  2. I like Vintage lady on Facebook,I almost forgot to say that!
    Have a wonderful week

  3. I think that Grace Kelly was wonderful.

  4. Hi suburban, thanks for participating! And Good Luck!

  5. meeyeehere: I very much agree with you! Thank you for the compliment! I wish you good luck in the contest and a very happy week!

  6. Hi, I am following you on GFC. I am missing something though, I have been searching you blog for about 20 minutes and I can not, for the life of me, see the link to follow you on facebook! I would love to if only I could find the link. Friend me if you like.
    I love Hitchcock, especially his Alfred Hitchcock Presents TV series, so it was fun for me to think of an answer for this question. I would say Marcia Cross would make a great Hitchcock Movie or TV show actress. Though she is an attractive woman, there is definitely something mysterious in her look and style, and I think she'd make an awesome old movie villian!

  7. Tracy R: Oh Dear One, I am sorry you couldn't find the address! I should have added it to this entry. It's below my twitter updates here on the right pane. but there are so many things that it's difficult. So I have added both links to this entry. Of course I wish you good luck in this contest and here are my links:
