Pass it on giveaway

A few months back I actually won 2 things from others blogs....which is funny, because honestly I have NEVER won anything..........no joke.........

I got a really really nice gift card to one of the best places ever from this hilarious inspirational gal. With it I was able to use it to help buy something that I was wanting but never really found a good reason to buy it.......a Memory Foam Mattress topper......silly I know......BUT you have no idea what it has done for my sleeping....sooooo comfy. So thank you again Jan....you are the best.

I also won a super cute apron from this super cool girl that she sewed herself.....something I have never done, but wish to someday!! It is so nice to have an apron to wear so I don't ruin my clothes while doing cakes. So thanks so much Krista....I am so happy I found your blog :)
So now it is my time to "pass it on"......something I should have done a long long time ago......but after seeing how many people look at my blog every day (site meter).....and I have no idea who in the world who is reading (since it just says the city and state.....which isn't always right) and I am curious!!
So with this pass along I am going to share my love of cake stands. I have a few and love them....they really finish off a table and add such a nice decorative touch to anything. Here are a few that I have found online that I am in LOOOOOOOVE WITH........seriously........love.........

This is the first one.....Oh how I love simplicity.....the white with the slight beading on it. Just so beautiful.

This one is from Target....I liked the different bottom and the top, how it looks like wood. I am a sucker for white simple cake stands too....this would just be an interesting cake stand to have.....not sure what I would do with it though!


I love the dark plate and clear bottom. It looks a lot more sophisticated than the others....but oh so beautiful.....**this one is from Etsy**



This one is from Crate and Barrel, it reminds me of a summer picnic, can't you just see some yummy lemon bars on it?



This one is my all time favorite.....It is from amazon and is not in stock......I want it so bad and it isn't even available!!




I love the color of this one.....and what made me so happy was that it came in like 5 other colors! **this one is from Amazon**I really like this one, very different than all the rest. The delicate beading and glass top just make it look so much more special. ** this one is from Amazon**



So there they are. So all you have to do is leave a comment (either about what your favorite cake stand is, or anything random is fine) and in 5 days (that would be Tuesday) I will announce a winner and you will receive your very own beautiful cake stand to showcase your goodies this holiday season :) I haven't decided which cake stand yet, but just rest assure that it will be super super cute!!

Now comment!! you only have 5 days!!

**Just a side note.....these are just a few of the cake stands I WISH I had :) The one the winner will get may or may not be one these....it may be something different....who doesn't like surprises?!?!? :) **

I love this Kate. I am so excited. I have a thing for these cake stands, but haven't ever gotten one for myself. I tend to have given them away with a cake attached :) This is fun.

So glad you got a topper. I love that idea for yourself.

And three posts down they are giving away a Scentsy candle thingy. Just thought you might like to know!

I love that one from Amazon too. And now that you showed it to me, I am on a quest to find it somewhere someplace. It worked for my ironing board cover in the same damask print, maybe it will work for this? I have a thing for cakestands too. Love, love them. I'm glad Jan sent me here.

Well l read your blog because l live on a boat and are traveling the usa waterways. Back home in Canada l did all kinds of bakeing for my kids and grand-kids they miss my baking l am sure. So now l don't do as much. And your cake plates are all very nice, and if l was to win one of them l would bake something special just so l could use it.
I do a lot of blog surffing, and l book-mark the one l like. I found yours a bit ago and l liked it so here l am back checking up on whats new. Thankyou and pick me? Dee

such a cute post, I just check your blog out on occassion to see your cute cakes, and I happen upon a contest :) I am a baker at heart, but don't have as much time as I would like. A cute cakestand would inspire me to showcase my baking more often.

I just love the crate and barrel one, I don't have a cake stand either, it seems to be one of those things you buy for others but not for oneself... though if I could make the creations you make I would have more than a few! Count me in!

I love baking around the holidays, and I don't own a cake stand...with two kids with December birthdays, I probably should get one...

I like the one that comes from amazon that comes in a few different colors (you have it pictured in green-blue would work with my kitchen:)

Oh my gosh, I have SO, SO wanted a cake stand forever. In fact, someone gave me one as a gift years ago but I didn't like it, so I regifted it on a desperate day when I didn't have another gift or time to get one. Don't tell. Yes, I am a serious regifter and I probably need to have some kind of intervention for it.

Anyway, I gave that one away in hopes of replacing it with the one I really wanted. We've moved too many times so I've put off buying things like that... It's time I stopped waiting!

I LOVE the b&w one -but would really also need a plain one for the type of goods that are to be showcased as the star, rather than the plate... how about both? And I won't even charge you International shipping!!

Thanks for your support on my blog, I really appreciate it!
