Finishing Touches Freebie Winner!

Before we forget to say it – Happy New Year’s Eve to everyone! All of your responses on this week’s giveaway from definitely made us look forward to this evening. As for us, we plan to continue our NYE tradition of heading out for a quiet one-on-one sushi dinner (although Sherry will be avoiding any raw fish rolls this year). It’s actually a tradition that we fell into accidentally, but we’ve since made it official by picking a new sushi joint each year and then saving a pair of chopsticks from the meal (which we then label with year and location for the memories). For us, it’s the perfect way to end a year. Oh and have I mentioned my wife is a veritable sushi monster? Really, it’s her candy.

And for one of you, we’ve got another great way to end 2009: with a $100 gift card toward anything on So whether you’re looking for new pulls for your kitchen, upgraded moldings for your living room or even a new vanity for your bathroom – consider it discounted by exactly a hundred beans. And speaking of discounts: is offering everyone a 15% discount on all items through January 31st. Just enter YNGHOUSE at checkout. Not bad, eh?

But on to our big winner. After harmonizing with in a rousing rendition of Auld Lang Syne it revealed that our random winner is: Beth (who, by coincidence, has no plans but hoped it involved shopping for new cabinet knobs). Congrats! Um, I guess you have plans now.

    Happy New Years Eve. I’m now craving sushi, and seeing as we live in the out-in-the-middle-of-nowhere-country I’m not going to get my fix unless I drive an hour into the city, which won’t be happening tonight, so please have a piece for me. (Anything tuna or eel is candy to me)

    Hi John and Sherry!!

    Happy New Year to you and all of your readers. My husband and I are thrilled to have won this prize. We are in the middle of remodeling our kitchen (and entire house actually) so this couldn’t be a more perfect New Years gift! We’ve already checked out and love their selection!! We will be sure to email you some before and after pictures once we have the cabinets finished. Thanks again and Roll Tide!!

    Congrats Beth! Hope we get to see what you’ve picked out! I’ll definitely have to shop around and see what I can find for my own home!

    Enjoy your sushi! I’m going to get sushi as well. That seems like an excellent New Years Eve tradition! Sushi is like candy to me as well. Yum yum! Happy New Year!
