    I would use the Silicon Steamer DAILY for my broccoli, Cauliflower, and green beans!

  5. Gotta have the apron. Don’t have to tie it on – genius! And I could hang things off of me – measuring spoons, cups, (a fire extinguisher?). I could practice my Beni-Hana skills without fear of puncture. Plus I won’t go up in flames. If I won it, I would wear it in Orange so I am also prepared to direct traffic (the fire truck that inevitably shows up at my house when I cook). Or in Black because it IS stylish enough to wear beyond the kitchen . . . With nothing else on (wink, wink,nudge,nudge). Thanks for the fun giveaway!

  6. I’m a subsriber.

  7. I would use the Silicone Steam Cooker by the French Company Mastrad to make a batch of steamed vegetables fresh from my garden.

    I subscribed by email.

  8. I just signed out of foster care, and a few of my friends and I are getting a house soon. I’m going to host a housewarming dinner with my friends, their families, and my biological and foster families. All of the items would be perfect for this!

    I’d tote my groceries home in the Reuseable Shopping Bag. When preparing the food, I’d be wearing the supercute Apron so as not to get my outfit dirty. I’m Greek, and I eat a lot of rice; the Silicone Steam Cooker is perfect for that. The Cheese Slate would be used for serving fruit (and maybe cheeses, too!)

    The Italian Scroll Placement Pad would be so cute to use for placemats- and they make for easy cleanup, too!

    After dinner, I’d serve warm Baklava with the Rivage Tea Towel over it, keeping the heat in the dish. Then I’d sit back, relax, and sip tea from the Chalkboard Mug– with my name written on it, of course!

    It would be so great to have all these items, so thank you for your considering me in your decision! Good luck to everybody!

  9. I love the Rivage tea towel, which is made in France, because I love fabrics. I would display it in my kitchen as a work of art.

  10. I would use the oval silicone steamer in my quest to incorporate more steamed veggies into our diet. I bet it would be the perfect size to steam an artichoke sliced in half – or even asparagus

    Thanks for the giveaway and I subscribed!

    First, I would leave the mug filled with hot chocolate on my husbands table for when he came home from work. While he relaxed, I would be cooking supper wearing my apron while using the steam cooker. The dining room table would be accented with the cheese slate filled with his favorite cheeses and our dishes would be set on the parchment placemats. After supper, I would clean the table with tea towel, make a shopping list for tomorrow’s dinner, and take my reusable shopping bag with me to the store.

  12. i lovvvvve aprons! I will wear it while cooking!

  13. Love the apron.

  14. We have our own garden and I love to steam the vegetables we get from it. I would use the Silicone Steamer to steam my vegetables instead of the old one which was passed down from my grandmother.

    Hello! I’ve just found your beautiful site. This giveaway is so sweet. I would love to have the chalkboard mug so I could write one reason I love my boyfriend on it each and every morning. What a way to start the day! Thanks for sharing your lovely goodies. :) Sending smiles your way.

    I’m wearing the apron…and nothing else, my hair is pulled back with the awesome tea towel ah i’m looking oh so cheesy. I decide to make a skavenger hunt by leaving a note on the chalk board mug. this note leads my husband to the silcone steamer filled with rose petals and an additional note instructing him to get the cheese board and look under to see the next note. this note leads him to Macys where is instructed to purchase s coach bag to bring back to me. While he is doing this I set the table using the Italian place setting, cook dinner to await my romantic evening.

  17. The Chalkboard mug is adorable..I would write I Love You every morning when he gets his first cup of coffee.

  18. I would use the steam cooker. It’s not about what I would cook in there, but the meaning behind the meal that is cooked in there. My husband is coming home from Afghanistan in a few months and it would be nice to use for a first home cooked meal with my husband, myself and our baby. What would I cook for his first meal home? Perhaps steam cook spiced-rubbed chicken breasts to make homemade tacos with a coleslaw topping.

  19. I subscribed. I would use the Chalkboard mug from ASA selection to post love notes to my husband! Maybe even announce my pregnancy?!?!

  20. I subscribe and would Reusable Shopping Bag by Flip and Tumble every time I shop. trinitygsd at yahoo dot cm

  21. I would use them all to make a fabulous dinner for my house warming party…. The shopping bag to head to the farmers markets for fresh fruits, vegetables,breads, & cheeses. Then I would head home to don my beautiful new apron and put together a fruit and cheese platter served on the cheese slate. I would steam some vegetables in the steam cooker. I would use the elegant placemat in the center of my table to highlight my centerpiece, and the tea towel would be a great color inspiraton for decor and my dessert table – for which I would len use it as an accent… An exciting event made perfect by some wonderful products….

  22. I would use the Reusable shopping bag to get all the ingredients I would need to make a Lasagna, then after I return home I would use the Apron so I don’t get all messy like I usually do heh. Thanks for the chance!

  24. The rectangle plate in slate would be awesome for serving some of the chesses I have been experimenting with lately. I have made feta, chevre, mozzarella and ricotta, but am hoping to branch out into gouda and swiss soon. This plate would make it awesome to write what types of cheeses they are when I have a party and share my handiwork! Thanks for the chance!

    well, well, well I must say all of these products pickle my fantsy but the chalkboard mug just stands out.

    At the workplace I (we all do) thrive off coffee. It would be nice to have this and write myself nice inspirational short quotes of the day on. My job can be very stressful at times and this just might make me smile a few times a day.

    Thanks for the chance!

  30. Hi, I live in Cleveland,OH. Aside from a few months a year our skies are pretty gray. What we do have here all the time is great food. My husband and I are always the ones bringing the food to the party and we enjoy cooking together and treating our friends to something great on another gray day in Cleveland.The tray would be a fun way to entertain.

    We do our shopping at The West Side Market, it’s a huge indoor market that you can get pretty much anything you desire. Your reusable grocery bag would be a bonus as not only does it seem more sturdy but the bright colors would hopefully help my husband find me easily in the crowd as I tend to wander in a place like that.

    The mug is simply a great idea and i’m surprised I haven’t seen more. Surely a thing I would take to work so no one else would use it,we have a coffe mug collection for some reason. Or to remind myself of an early meeting and to drink another cup!

    The apron looks like you would be able to maybe just wipe off some smaller spills or splatters instead of have to wash it all the time. More prtoction from catching on fire is always a plus, I actually have had apron get burned :(

    Your site has a lot of great products, i’m just glad I happed to come across it.

    The cheese slate would be useful for our HGTV Design Star wine parties.

  32. I subscribed…I would start off in my kitchen wearing the cute apron to protect my clothing, write a love note on the mug to my hubby on the mug, fill the cheese board with my fave french cheese for entertaining,use the shopping bag for the farmer’s market and have the placement pad for my funky centerpiece.

  33. I subscribed to your store’s email list. One way I’d have fun using the Chalkboard Mug by the German company ASA Selection is by writing messages on it when I’m video calling with overseas relatives. Wouldn’t my grandson (for example) be tickled to see a mug that says something about a recent accomplishment?

  34. I would you the reuseable shopping bag to hold my current knitting project.

  35. I would like the apron because when I cook it can get pretty messy and I usually have to go change if we have guests over without one

  39. I would take the reusable shopping bag with me to shop for items for a special date night with my husband.
    Once I return home I will wear the apron while I am making a meal of fresh steamed vegetables, shrimp and rice with the steam cooker.
    While the rice, vegetables and shrimp are being steamed I will be making crab stuffed mushrooms and dicing cheese and fruit that I will be serving on the cheese slate.
    Once complete I will layer my steam mixture on a beautiful crystal dish which I will place on the placemat with the tea towel placed along side. Combined with the cheese slate of cheeses, fruit and mushrooms this will be a meal that my husband will love.
    At the end of the night before it’s time to become parents again we will share a hazelnut latte from the mug.

  40. A tea party under summer trees is such a sweet entertainment for a few girlfriends. I’d cover a couple of tables with vintage patchwork quilts and set out colorful cloth napkins and pretty china plates, glasses and pitchers of cold, sweet tea and sangria wine. The Cheese Slate would be a perfect and unique touch. I would write the names of several varieties on it with chalk, chill the slate and then add the cheese and grape garnishes just before putting it on the table as a centerpiece.

  41. I would use the chalkboard coffee mug to write NOT YOUR COFFEE!. Can’t wait to win! :o)

  42. I subscribed to your store…thanks! I love aprons – and wear them every time I cook…but the cheese plate? I am a huge fan of artisan cheeses and my best friend’s son is a cheese artisan…that would be out all the time! Thanks!

  43. I’ve subscribed to your store and looking forward to seeing more excellent products. I’d use the Reusable Shopping Bag by Flip and Tumble next time (every time) I go to the Farmers Market and replace one of my generic grocery store bags. mcgillrmcgill(at)charter(dot)net

  44. i subscribe and id use the shopping bag anytime i was at the mall or out buying groceries!

  45. I subscribed. Cute online shop:) I would use the cheese platter to serve cheese ,of course, at clothing exchanges that I host. My friends and I always like to munch on something when we meet up and our little snack would look so good on this platter.

    my boyfriend and i like to eat a cheese and cracker platter snack in bed sometimes, and the cheese tray block would be perfect!

    I think the item I’d get the biggest kick out of using is the chalkboard mug…I am a middle school teacher who drinks coffee EVERY DAY, and I think it would be cute to write a witty “saying of the day” or an inspirational blurb on the cup each day.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  48. I’d use the steamer b/c I’m diabetic and they say it’s good for folks like me. I use the micro a lot and it works in there plus steaming is so much healthier than my usual boiling to bits…;)
    Signed up for your emails too.

  49. I am married to a chef and he thinks he knows it all;0)I am a pretty good cook,(he even says so)but pretty much anything food and cooking related is ‘his’…I would love the opportunity to win these items so that I too may have some kitchen supplies/utensils etc. PLUS…I can say mine, mine, mine to him;0)

    i think the cheese slate is AWESOME! I’ve never heard of anything like that. Since my husband is a total cheese lover I’d love to surprise him w/ this- perhaps slice some of his fav cheese- Door Co, WI cheddar, and write a little note directly on the slate!

  51. I love all the products. The chalkboard mug would totally come in handy at work. I can write my name on it and the flavor of coffee I’m drinking or I can write reminders to myself of things I need to do at work since I’m always forgetting.

  52. I subscribe to your store.

  53. the silicone steamer looks great for melting chocolate for my awesome magnificent truffles! mwahaha! non stick!

    My husband and I are participating in a community garden for the first time ever! We were both raised as farm kids, but neither of us have grown our own food since we were teens, so it would be exciting to have a nice piece such as the steamer to come up with an amazing and fresh dish to celebrate returning to our roots!

    Kimbahleigh666 at gmail dot com

  56. The Cake Vintage placemats would be invaluable for entertaining:

    1)Dinner parties: individualize with guest’s names and list the courses in fancy schmancy calligraphy (or, erm, cursive in my case).

    2)Cocktail parties: write down a signature cocktail recipe being served that night. Guests can take them home and recreate it! (How many times have you had a cocktail at a party and then wonder later on what was in it?!)

    3)Wine and cheese mixers: have optimal pairings for the evening written down.

    4)Birthdays, anniversaries, going-away, etc.: supply plenty of writing utensils on the table and encourage guests to leave personalized messages for the guest(s) of honor.

    5)Swaps: No brainer. Guests can make notes of items that perhaps they didn’t get to swap for, but want to remember to look into on their own.

    I could seriously go on with these. Need a caption writer for your site? :-P (I kid, I kid.) Realistically, if nothing else, this giveway will have earned you at least one customer… particular for those placemats!

  57. The Oval Silicone Steam Cooker would be great for small single servings. It is so hard to find any kind of similar pan that doesn’t hold at lest 4 servings. No more mushy peas or carrots or overdone fish. Now that I think about it, it would work great for baby food for my son also. He doesn’t like mushy peas or carrots either! I want him to think of me as supercook!

  61. I would use the chalkboard mug to put little love notes for my boyfriend when I bring him coffee. Two morning pick-me-ups!

    I would use the cheese slate for a picnic in the park with my husband and close friends. Cheese, dried fruit, and honey, paired with a nice white wine while the sun is setting over the skyline of the city–what could be a more perfect summer day??


  65. The apron! Okay, I have a lot of critters– you name it, it probably lives under my roof or in my yard. I’m thinking the apron would be super useful to carry around treats while I cook and clean, to at least entertain the critters till I’m done :)

    I love the apron I have been meaning to buy one too since me and my son love baking cupcakes and my clothes end up very messy and stained. I would get a lot of use out of it!

    Since I will go to college this fall, I will use the reusable tote to carry my grocerys to my dorm.

    Well, what better way to a mans heart than through his stomach. Right? So, with these products, I would surprise my lucky guy with the perfect breakfast.
    While wearing my stylish apron, I would prepare pancakes, hashbrowns (with peppers and cheese on them ofcourse) and a small fruit bowl (my honeys favorite breakfast). Put them on a cute plate and then put them on the Cheese Slate, used as a serving tray. You can write
    on it when a chalk pen so ofcourse I would draw little hearts all over it.
    And ofcourse he loves coffee, so I would serve it in the chalkbard mug where I would write “good morning handsome” on it. Then, I’d place all the things on the italian scroll placemat and have the tea towel handy just incase there are any spills! Sounds like a fantastic morning for me & my honey! Soooo…I hope I win! :)

  71. I subscribed!

    The cheese slate, hands down.

    I love the mug. It’d would be fun to doddle or make lists on. But I like the reusable bag. The fact is folds up so small I can take it anywhere. The market comes to mind.

  78. I’d choose the Apron by the French Company Mastrad, and I’d bring it to my boyfriend’s place. I have a ton of aprons at my house, but none at his, and I do a fair amount of cooking there, too!

  79. I love the Italian Scroll placemats! Thet’d be awesome for when I have tons of people over when my new baby comes next month- they’s be a gorgeous way of keeping things tidy! In fact, all the pieces are wonderfully functional as well as beautifully designed- I want the tea towel to add beauty to my kitchen, the chalkboard mug because of it’s inspiring design, and the apron because I’m going to get VERY tired of doing laundry in the next few months. I’m happy to subscribe to the shop!


  80. I would use the reusable shopping bag for trips to the bakery, supermarket, and other stores :)

  81. The chalkboard mug would be used near my laptop, in my laptop case, and at Starbucks. Better yet I’d use it to keep my pens in at University. Water and coffee is what I would use it for. Finally, to keep the focus on my schoolwork I’d use it as a flower vase. A chalkboard mug serves many purposes. Whoa!

  90. I am planning a get-together with my precious and friends and need to shop. I will take my reusable shopping bag and head for the shops. The first items would be cheeses, breads and wines and of course the main ingredients for some Thai cuisine. Will go back to my kitchen wear my apron and enjoy some wine while cooking up a storm. Will cut up cheeses and carefully wrap the trays to place them in the fridge. Will wash all veggies and cut up meats. Put them in the fridge. Will set up the table without forgetting the gorgeous placement pad. When guests will arrive, they will find me sweating it off right by the kitchen stove with a tea towel on my shoulder enjoying the vapours of the veggies and rice cooking up in the steam cooker. On the cheese slate, there will be more cheese in case I didn’t cut up enough, right beside the bread and crackers baskets. When the main course is finished, we’ll enjoy some green tea in a mug and talk some more about life and enjoyments.
    To finish the evening will throw everything in the dishwasher and in the washing machine and go to bed knowing that I had a great evening, once again!

  91. I would LOVE the Chalkboard Mug!On days when I feel nice I would leave pleasant messages for my husband and on days when Im not so nice I could leave messages for his eyes only! It would enhance my spelling and creativity!!!!!Maybe even get me to open a dictionary for the BIG words!!!

  92. i subscribe to your store. I really do love the mug. it would be a great way to write down notes that I’m always leaving around the house. or a quote to start the day.

    to be different though, I’ll say the apron as well. I really love it and would let a friend of mine have it b/c she’s amazing and likes to bake goodies for all her friends. i’d give it to her and then demand she make me cake pops pronto! LOL

    The chalkboard mug is definitely my favorite. We’re trying to teach our daughter how to recognize letters and words and that would be a fun way to help her learn. She always wants to steal my coffee mugs to be “more like mommy”, so this would be a fun and easy way to make her feel like a big girl. Love it!

  94. subscribe, hmcnaron at gmail

    I would love the awesome chalkboard mug. If I took it to work, I could write my name on it and no one would steal it! At home, I could leave sweet messages for my baby when I surprise him with breakfast in bed on father’s day (tomorrow!). And I could write to-do lists for myself as I’m sitting in the morning thinking about what I have to do that day. So many options– a brilliant idea!

  95. I subscribed to your store!! – Would love to have the apron….love cooking in an apron when entertaining!
