St. Patrick's Day Giveaway

Top o' the mornin' to you.
In honor of this, my 180th post, not to mention St. Patrick's Day, we're having a giveaway here at the castle. Because is there anything we like better than a cool prize that's absolutely free?
I was contacted recently by CSN Stores, a company that owns a number of sites selling all kinds of stuff -- from kids bedding to accent rugs to -- whaddya know -- some really nifty cooking stuff.
They're offering one of you, dear readers, the chance to win this 5 speed mixer.
I would love to win it myself, but somehow I think it'd be a bit suspicious if every commenter is named "Lynn."
Here's the deal: If you want a chance at winning this handsome mixer, leave a comment below. If you mention the giveaway on your blog and link up, leave a second comment so you'll be entered twice. I'll randomly choose a name in a week, on Wednesday, March 24. Let's say by noon, so we all have time to get out of our p.j.'s.
And just for fun, I will pick a second name of someone who'll receive a copy of Queen of the Castle: 52 Weeks of Encouragement for the Uninspired, Domestically Challenged or Just Plain Tired Homemaker.
Because I just really like that book :)
Best o' luck to you! Don't forget to leave contact information if you don't have a blog.

Full disclosure: I have received no compensation for this post other than the joy of knowing one of you will get a free mixer. With which you can, we hope, whip up some magically delicious goodies.

Whoa awesome giveaway! The only mixer I have is a hand mixer and so stuff flies everywhere when I try to mix. (I end up with butter in the ceiling fan. It's not good.) So this would be awesome!

Too fun! I'd love a mixer, especially since I have a habit of letting mine fall off the counter when I walk away and forget I have them on.


Anyway, would love to have one in backup.

Hi Lynn, I just stopped by to say Happy St. Patty's Day and here you are having a give-away.

How wonderful!!! Honestly, I'm gonna have to pass on the give-away. I actually have two mixers I never use. However, I'd love to mention your give-away on my blog. Would you mind if I did? Good Luck to everyone, this is so cooool....

Bet I have the most antique mixer in the group: it was a wedding present, 56 years ago. Though it still works just fine, I wouldn't mind having a new one.....who knows what new bells and whistles they've come up with!

I would love to win that beater. I was just reading the book "When everything changed" The amazing journey of American women from 1960 to present by Gail Collins and she states that "before beaters a woman had to hand-beat a cake for 3 quarters of an hour". That is exactly why I am glad to live in this era. All things are made simple, so that you may get it done quickly.
