Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Shopping at CSN Stores

I think I've mentioned once or twice (ahem) that I have a hammock that I absolutely love and adore. I enjoy spending as much time there as possible. My hubby built the giant frame for it years ago and I've already had to replace the hammock three times. Sadly, I'll need to do that again soon since the strings are starting to pop. I've had a few over the years so I know what I want but I haven't been able to find it anywhere. Until now.

I'm sure you've seen various posts on blogs from CSN They have 22 different stores online that offer everything from coffee makers to hammocks and more. (You see where I'm going with this?) Earlier this year I entered several giveaways to try to win some of the beautiful bookshelves that were being reviewed and given away on many different blogs. Sadly, I wasn't a winner but I bet some of you were!

So that's how I became familiar with the site and that's how I found this:

There are pages and pages of hammocks and outdoor furniture but I think this is the one for me. I haven't decided on a color yet but I'm going to try to get that ordered today so I can enjoy these final weeks of summer. (Oh how it pains me to say final and summer in the same sentence!) And since I'll also get free shipping I think I just might order a set of pots and pans my hubby had his eye on. With our anniversary and Christmas not too far away (that's even more painful to say) it would be the perfect gift for him. Especially since we always agree not to exchange gifts and he never follows that rule. CSN has so many sets to chose from but I think I like this one.

So what do you think? I don't shop often so this is a big deal for me. I'll be sure to let you know all about them when they arrive. CSN Stores, here I come!


  1. I love CSN Stores. I won a gift certificate from them a little while back but have no idea from which blog as I entered so many! Haven't decided how to spend it yet - there are too many things to choose from :-)

    A hammock for the yard sounds wonderful... if only we had a tree for shade back there.

  2. Two wonderful choices, Debbie, go for it! I just got a 10" le creuset grill pan from them and love it. Your post reminds me I need to review it. Yow!

  3. I see my hammock envy days are not quite over! I love the look of that hammock.
