Birthday Giveaway #2-Dining Rooms Direct

If you have been following my twitter updates you know that we are apartment hunting again! Our lease is up the end of this month and it is time to move on up to the big time...a two bedroom apartment. Yeah! Since my child currently lives in what is basically the kitchen, we have made it as long as we can. Our application is in and we should hear something back today. Please keep your fingers crossed. We have looked at several (read about 100) apartments and this one is actually the same price that we are paying now! Go figure. Where was it last year this time? Rent prices in the city are down about 10-30% from what we have found in our search. Since we are "saving" money, A has promised me some new furniture and new rugs. I've thoroughly enjoyed perusing the Dining Room Furniture at Dining Rooms Direct, the host of my next birthday giveaway. They have several things I have my eye on, such as:


Living Room Rug Options:

New Nursery Options:





Someday we'll be back in the South and I'll have my front porch again so I can buy a few of these. I love them.




Did you know that Dining Rooms Direct has more than just dining room furniture? They have several different furniture collections. My personal favorite is the Coastal Living Collection by Stanley:



Ok, so what can you win? The nice folks at Dining Rooms Direct are giving one lucky Magnolias, Marriage and Manhattan reader a $40.00 gift certificate for anything on their site. You could reduce the cost of something you have your eye on, or you might be able to find a fun home accessory.

If I had $40.00 to spend, I would probably buy these:

By now, I think you know the drill with my giveaways. If you don't, you better learn because it's just the first week of August and I have lots more coming your way. (BTW, you still have time to sign up for the Gossip Girl Site Tour, click here for details.)

What a great site! I would love to win so I can purchase the adorable French Home Gourmet LaRochere 34 Ounce Carafe in the Napoleonic Bee Motif! This would be perfect for morning O.J.!

Thank you for the opportunity.

Thanks for this find. I absolutely love the Linon microfiber breakfast nook. It is perfect for city living, tight spaces and the price is right. I would put the $40 towards that set!

Great timing. I am looking for a LR rug, DR rug, and DR table for our new house! So, I'd put it towards one of those. I love both of the rugs you posted and I'm trying to find them now! :)
