TidyMom Favorite Things Giveaway

The holidays, to me, means a lot of time in the kitchen baking which also means I need to spend a little extra “me” time pampering myself and relaxing.  While I was shopping I found my self at Macy’s and bought almost everything there.  So many cute things that fell right into my theme, this giveaway pretty much put itself together.  While writing up this post I realized a lot of the Martha Stewart Collection items I found are not available online, so you’ll need to check in-store if you are looking for some of these.

I have not been asked to promote or paid to share any of these items, I just liked it all (and use most of it myself) and thought you’d like it too. I REALLY want to take this time to say thank you for visiting TidyMom, for checking out my recipes, tips and crafts, you all are why I do this blogging thing!  

So hey, thanks for stopping by and I hope you’ll take a minute to enter to win and visit all of the other awesome bloggers in the hop!

Below you can see my Favorite Things up close-up and personal.  If I could find the item online I added a link for you……. enter to win at the end o this post.

  20. Laura posted on November 11, 2013 at 10:32 pm (#)

    I LOVE kitchen appliances–it’s one of my many oddities (I’m not a huge baker, though I enjoy it & I don’t even have my own kitchen)–So I’d Looooooove the Kitchenaid mini chopper!

  21. Keke posted on November 11, 2013 at 10:35 pm (#)

  32. Sonya Burton posted on November 12, 2013 at 8:16 am (#)

    Your basket is so cute and I love baking with my girls so this sure would make it easier.

  33. Erin Uriarte posted on November 13, 2013 at 10:28 am (#)

    What a luxurious prize! I would love to win this simply because I would normally never get a chance to own these items. As most of you know, being a mom means making sacrifices so that my family can have what they need. So my kitchen utensils and pamper-me stuff usually comes from the Dollar Tree. Having new stuff like this would also help me the push to get back in the kitchen for fun and not just because I have to be there :)

  34. Ansley posted on November 14, 2013 at 8:45 am (#)

    I would love to win your favorite things basket because I love cooking and blue and red are my favorite colors!

  35. Cindy Keener posted on November 14, 2013 at 9:25 am (#)

    Love your favorites! Such awesome stuff!

  36. Danyiel J posted on November 14, 2013 at 11:08 am (#)

    So it says it ended and then a little farther down it says 12 hours remaining. So here I am saying I love the colors of your basket and I adore the little KitchenAid.

      oh thanks for letting me know!! that’s so odd. the giveaway ended Monday at 11:59pm and the winner was contacted and published on the widget on Tuesday. I’m not sure what happened, because it was all showing the contest had ended and the winner name……I just went in and fixed it, so sorry for the confusion. I’ll let know Promosimple know this happened
