GIVEAWAY......





I think I mentioned another black and white giveaway a couple of weeks ago and then I forgot.  When you are old like me shit like that happens about a 100 times a day.  It sucks.

But...before I get to that I have a little rant to go on.

Drive through Banking.  Are you kidding me right now.  "Hi, my name is "Teller Person" and I will be serving you today". 

 Huh?

Me: How about you put money in the drawer and give it to me?

 "What service can I perform for you?".  
Huh again.

Me: I'm sorry is this a drive through restaurant?  What is with the chit chat.  I am here to make a deposit and you will figure that out when you shut up and open that dang drawer.  You are not my hairdresser...we will not be friends.  Open the drawer.  I'm on the phone.....or plucking my eyebrows....or looking in the mirror and holding up my face on one side to see how I would look if I had a face lift....  I don't have time for full on conversation. 

"You are a preferred customer and it has been a pleasure to serve you today".

Me: You dang right buster.....you prefer customers with money as opposed to someone who leaves a pile of leaves in the drawer?

A "Good Morning"....and  "Thank You" will be sufficient.

Pet peeve.  Sorry.

Giveaway.....

.....more black and white.  
Breaking it down.
Candlesticks from West Elm.  Black and white chalk.  Mustache.  Not a real one but an exact replica :)
 Another shot of the candlesticks.

West Elm hand towels.  Small owl pitcher.  Flash cards and measuring tape.

Black and white planter.  20" zebra pillow cover.  Nice candle.

This was in the show house this year...

See.

These smell good.

Hit the "join this site" button...since my follow button doesn't work.  Not sure why but figuring it out is above my pay grade.

Winner soon...probably....Friday or Monday.

More Scott's......

Harass Tuesday......till it goes away and becomes someone important like Wednesday.  

Cause Wednesday has clout.  Hump Day.

Shazam......





Pin It!

Cathy Wall said...

OMG! LOVE starting my day with you! I will take the visual of you at the drive up window with me all day. Black & white speaks to me...!

Kerry @ Design du Monde said...

I thought I "joined" your site months ago, apparently not but I just did.
My bank has an up close and awful angled camera in your face and it switches back and forth between you and the teller. I don't even hear what they are saying because I am generally appalled at the view up my nose.

Shelley {Crazy Wonderful} said...

Man they always get you at the drive through! What an insane giveaway!!! Everything is SO up my alley - big time over of all things black and white. Definitely a follower!

Brandi said...

Happy follower! Those West Elm towels would look great in my bathroom, along with everything else.

Katie said...

Did the teller seriously say "preform"? Cuz your story is funny, but grammar stuff like that just makes it even funnier to me. I can't help it. Grammar just kills me. Not sure why though, cause mine definitely isn't perfect, but...

Of course I follow and would love to win your giveaway :)

YAY! I'm a follower. Joiner? It's worth the win for the west elm towel, I LOVE those suckers!! Where will I put my mustache? Somewhere people will snicker, but I'll be laughing at them, not with them. Some people have no taste at all, amirite?

kathy said...

I am a follower! Love the bank story - I feel the same way!
Great giveaway!

heather (love your space) said...

you're the best. You are the only blogger I know who can get away with this--I love that you don't apologize for things like forgetting a giveaway. When people apologize over and over about their bad pictures or whatever, makes me crazy. You are so right: it is all above our paygrade! Make it work!

(Oh, and I am a follower and would love to win this stash. And 'stache. Ha!)

Eligonma said...

HATE THE DRIVE UP AT THE BANK!!! I always
do a night deposit so I can avoid the teller! Black
and white is so crisp and makes everything look
nice. Keep up the good posts! They make my day!

Laurie said...

Already a stalker....I need to win so I can pack all that pretty b&w sh*t up and take it to the UK....ha

Holly said...

Best giveaways ever. Drive-thru banking has got a little strange - and ours has a video monitor too which I thought was even weirder. I don't need a close-up of you or me to do this transaction buddy. I'd love to win this one for that planter alone.

Holly said...

I just read Cassie's comment - you're doing a workshop at Haven??!! Oh man, I knew I should have signed up.

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

Honey....I will follow you to the ends of the cotton picking earth.


Truly.

And that giveaway is scrumpdillyiscious~ I have a place for every single thing....


Fingers and toes...and lots of other loose parts crossed.

Taylor Greenwalt said...

Carmel @ Our Fifth House said...

I want to win this BAD! Rolling on the floor laughing about your pet peeve - now add to that my 2 kids in the back seat - not cool. Cut the chit chat is right! Excited to meet you next week! I'm planning to mow people down to get to your class . ;)

Junell said...

Love the black & white! That "stache" takes me back to my Tom Selleck crush!

Lisa at Shine Your Light said...

I love that this blog is comic relief and interior design all rolled into once! Thank you for this giveaway chance! I subscribe via email, does that count? :)

Victoria said...

Great giveaway. I love black and white. I also love your sense of humor.
Best...Victoria

Just Spiff It said...

I am right with you on the bank thing. I got a verbal spanking from a snippy little teller when I tried to cash a check with only my husbands name on it. Oh shame on me! She asked if he was in the car?? Duh - she could look and see he was not in the car!!
Great giveaway - but i already follow you - would not miss your humor for anything!

Tracy F. said...

Agree with your "rant"! Well-said!

Great giveaway Shazam! Always look forward to reading your posts.

ash said...

I was thinking the exact same thing! The teller was overly nice and game me a lollipop!?! Maybe the bankers are trying to change my perception of them...it's not working. Great give away!

PURA VIDA said...

You should have been to the drive through with me yesterday at Starbucks. I had no idea a thank you could be said in a pitch that hi and cheery

it would have really got your goat

Lisa Mende Design said...

Robin from highpointcircle.blogspot said...

Sorry, I was laughing to hard, you know the tears in the eyes sort of laugh, and probably missed the part about entering for this giveaway, but hope a comment fill that requirement. If not, glad to have stopped by. Oh, yeah, I'll follow you too.
