Fab Freebie: Round ‘Em Up

*** This giveaway is no longer accepting entries – see who won below! ***

After lots of good, fun and quirky Top 5 lists this week, random.org has plucked out one person as the winner. That person is… Lori Foester (who gave us her five diaper bag must haves – lip balm for mom, change of clothes for baby, diapers/wipes, rash cream and her wallet). Congrats Lori!

While we’re unplugging in Maui (more on that here) we thought we’d drop by with this week’s giveaway (it’s kitchen related- wahoo!). So don’t worry if your comment takes a while to pop up – it’s in there!

Dot Coms For Moms has always hosted great collections of helpful links on their site (everything from DIY decorating ideas to yummy holiday recipes). And this week they’re offering up a “Kitchen Hues” accessory prize package valued at nearly $500! They took their knack for finding the best of the web and rounded up a bunch of colorful Scandinavian-influenced items that would look great in any kitchen. We love everything from the sunny geometric table runner to those killer striped serving bowls. Oh, if you don’t want to miss out on future Dot Coms For Moms giveaways and round-ups, you can sign up for their newsletter.

  • PRIZE: A  kitchen prize pack courtesy of Dot Coms For Moms including a Bauer American Modern Pitcher, this set of 4 Modern Tree Placements, a Large Kahler Kitchen Container, this Blue Concrete Tray Set, this Tree Tea Towel, Muuto’s I’m Boo Glass Carafe, this Zinnia Table Runner, a ittala Origo Serving and 2 Snack Bowls
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “ROUND ME UP” and…
  • BONUS QUESTION: … give us a round up of your five favorite things (on any subject that you choose). Feel free to list your top five songs of all time. Or a handful of your favorite local restaurants. Or your five most (or least) preferred personal nicknames. Whatever floats your boat (your five favorite water crafts?).
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Leap Day! Wednesday, February 29th at 8pm EST or at 10,000 entries (whichever comes first)
  • PRIZE SHIPS: The United States or Canada (although we do try to wrangle as many international giveaways as possible)
  • USUAL STUFF: One entry per e-mail address is permitted. The winner will be selected using random.org and announced on Thursday as an update to this post. That’s right, come right back here on Thursday for the announcement of our winner. Good luck…

Note: We aren’t paid or perked for hosting these giveaways, we just do ‘em to thank you awesome folks for stopping in. See our Giveaway FAQ page for more info. Pics courtesy of Dot Coms For Moms.
