Black and White Giveaway

So I know this is no big surprise...

I am currently obsessed with Black and White. Black and white patterns are awesome. And classy. Black and white patterned anything!

But I have also realized that it isn't a recent thing. When I bought my house 3 1/2 years ago and bought bedding set, I bought a black and white one. My room is decorated in black and white with red walls. When my good friend Bridget got married and I was looking through wedding magazines I fell in love with black and white wedding dresses. When we got engaged, there was no and white it was!

Now black and white is trendy. But I swear, I liked it before it was huge!

We are also doing a couple rooms of our house in black and white. The guest room will be black and white with my current bedding and accessories. We aren't doing black and white in the living room because it doesn't go with my current furniture, but we are in the process of deciding if we can build a wet bar in the living room. I started looking for ideas on home bars on the Internet. Our dining room will be black and white with red accents. And our downstairs powder room will be black and white paisley (LOVE black and white patterns).

In fact our china that we registered for is also black and white (but made sure to pick something timeless that will last beyond my black and white obsession).

Do you love it? I love it!
And I hope we get some of it.
Just don't look at the price tag!

I have been checking out black and white patterns everywhere. I have found several neat serving options over at CSN. Cute dishes like this, this, and this. They also have other neat black and white house items like this and this!

**They obviously have a million things that are not black and white...but that is what I have on the brain!**

But this serving bowl totally caught my attention!

If you aren't familiar with CSN let me give you some info I snagged from their website:
Based in Boston, CSN Stores LLC began in 2002 and has grown rapidly into a Top 3 online U.S. retailer of home and office goods with 400+ employees.

Beyond providing unparalleled customer service, selection, and savings to our U.S. customers, CSN Stores has opened its doors to online shoppers from Canada, the U.K., and Germany. Recently named to the Hot 100 List of online retailers for 2009, CSN Stores continues to grow.

CSN has contacted me and gave me the option to do a review or to do a giveaway. As much as I love free stuff - I decided I'd rather give one of YOU something free. In honor of my upcoming black and white wedding, you can win this black and white serving bowl!
