CSNStores.Com Giveaway!

Photobucket

I'm so excited to finally bring you this review & giveaway from CSN stores. If you're unfamiliar with CSN they carry everything from cribs to housewares. Trust me, if it's for sale, you can get it through one of the online CSN stores.

They sent me this super sun-shiney lemon colored Reston Lloyd Calypso Basic 3 qt. colander. I absolutely adore it!

Photobucket

Here's what the CSNStores.Com has to take about this colander.

"This 3 quart colander is made of enamel on steel with stainless steel rim and handles. Great for straining or simply displaying fruit on the table, this fun colored colander will draw attention to your kitchen. Make a statement in your home with this Calypso Colander by Reston Lloyd. Features:

•Enamel on steel
•Stainless steel rim and handles
•Hand wash only"

This colander comes in an astonishing 14 colors so that you can match it to any decor. They also have a complete line of coordinating pieces that you can add as you see fit.

Here's a shot of it with a regular sized coffee can so you can get some perspective on it's size.

This is the perfect size for family style pasta or just draining a pound of ground round. When it's not in use here I fill it with some fresh fruit & leave it out on the counter. The holes in the colander allow air to circulate around your fruit keeping it fresh and it looks great.

I have no pictures of this as everytime I have brought fruit home & put it in here it gets gobbled up, but that's a good thing, right?

CSNStores.com has been generous enough to offer one of my readers their own Reston Lloyd 3 quart colander in the color of their choice.

Hi Mimi,
I'm not entering, although I just love the colander and had a look at all those gorgeous colours. Who can chose from that? What a fun prize!

But I wanted to say, welcome back, glad you're home, hope you'll get to stay out of the hospital now and that you feel much better.

Ronnica said...

Pretty...I'd go with a purple one since I already have a few kitchen things in purple.

Michelle said...

Sweet giveaway. I love the color! ;)

I follow you. ;)

Kat said...

I was thinking the yellow would make everything you put in it "sunny" but I like the idea of putting fruit in it on the table --- so the olive one would probably be perfect in my kitchen eating area (Butcher-block table and leaves & bamboo like plants on the seat cushions)

Glad your back to blogging
