Okay, this is going to be a little bit of a different giveaway in that it more or less relates to books.

I love reading and writing book reviews while I sip some of my delicious teas. I sometimes hit my favorite tea room (where the Montreal book bloggers meet each month) or, I sit at home, boil some water and make myself my own pot.

I have about 10 different teapots (all of them original and very cool) (see pictures) that I actually use - depending on my mood and which tea I am drinking. These teapots are called "memory teapots" which means that you can only serve one type of tea per teapot. I am, for some reason, fascinated with teapots - but I digress.

Anyway, I had been using an old kettle to boil my water and then, I was offered the opportunity of reviewing a tea kettle by the wonderful people at CSNstores.com. I was thrilled and I have to say that this kettle is truly a little gem. For my complete review, please stay tuned as I will be creating another blog post right after this one.

HOWEVER, the great news is that the kind people at CSNstores.com have offered me the opportunity of putting this great kettle up as a giveaway (obviously you will get a new one :)

Here is a picture of the item (the official shot):

Farberware Classic Accessories Stainless Steel 2.5 Quart Sonoma Whistling Tea Kettle - 50122

  1. Only open to Canadian and US residents;

  2. If you are already a follower (thank you!) just leave me a message at the bottom of this blog post. Don't forget to put your email address so I can contact you. Because you are already a follower, I will automatically give you 5 entries :)

  3. If you "refer" someone to my blog and they become a follower, I will add 3 entries for you and will give them 2 entries, again, I will need an email address;

  4. If you simply want to post your name (without becoming a follower) you will get 1 entry.

  5. Just a side note. This item will be shipped by the company directly, which means I will have to give them your complete contact information. If this makes you uncomfortable, please do not leave your name.

  6. FINALLY :) contest ends on June 30, 2010 at midnight.

Thanks! and spread the word!

This is what it looks like on my stove top:

Wow, that's a beautiful kettle! However, I must say I'm partial to my electric kettle, which shuts off automatically! (I'm prone to putting on water for tea, wandering off to check my email and forgetting all about the boiling water.) So no need to enter me in the giveaway, but I'm looking forward to reading your review!
