ABC Wednesday -- G is for Giveaway!


G is for GIVEAWAY! I'm so GEEKED! The GENEROUS people at CSN Stores have offered to GIVE one of my lucky readers from the USA or Canada a GREAT GIFT!

Perhaps you aren't familiar with CSN Stores. Started in 2002 by 2 partners, as an online store, the company has grown to include over 200 different online stores. Imagine taking a trip to the mall, and doing it from the comfort of your own home, maybe even in your pajamas! (Yeah, I know, some people wear their pajamas to the mall these days, but not me.)

CSN Stores started out selling racks and shelves, and today they sell everything from Kids Bedding to Power Tools.

GOOD GOLLY Miss Molly, You've GOT to check them out! Then look at all the other GREAT stuff they sell at CSN Stores.


Ok, I got that out of my system, I'm calmed down a little. Today is ABC Wednesday and of course, the letter of the week is G.

G is GOOD for other words besides GIVEAWAY.

For example:

G is for GREENHOUSE. One of the Affiliate stores at CSN Stores is www.allgreenhouses.com Where you can find all sorts of GREENHOUSES (Hence the name) as well as potting benches and sheds, tools and accessories, and many of your GARDENING needs.

While you are there, GIVE a GANDER to the

Juliana 2-Tier Growing Rack - 2tier Growing Rack

GIVE it a GOOD long look, because that is the GROOVY prize someone is going to win!



G is for GARDEN, Where your GREENHOUSE/GROWING RACK would look GRAND. Especially once you fill it with GREENERY.

G is For GREEN with envy, because that is what everyone will be when they see The GRAND GREENHOUSE in your GARDEN that you won in my GIVEAWAY.

Here's how it works. There are several ways you can enter.

1) Leave me a comment below, letting me know what you would GROW in this GREENHOUSE.

2) Become a follower or email subscriber of I Refuse to Recede (Or already be a follower/subscriber) And leave me a comment below telling me you are a follower.

3)Blog about my GREAT GREENHOUSE GIVEAWAY on your blog and leave me a comment (and a link) below.

That GIVES you three chances to win, one for each qualifying comment you leave below.

But wait! There's more! You can double your chances.

Each person who joins my Tuesday Trivia Tie-in blog party on Tuesday March 9, showing off something you enjoy and sharing some trivia about it will automatically be entered 3 times.

So, you can get a GRAND total of six (6) entries in the GREAT GREENHOUSE GIVEAWAY!



GENERAL information:

The Giveaway will close at Midnight EST, Wednesday March 10.
The winner will be notified by email, Please make sure I have contact information for you. If it's not on your profile, or your blog, please include it in at least one comment.
CSN Stores will ship direct to the winner, but can only ship to the USA and Canada.
***Disclaimer- CSN Stores agreed to provide the prize for this giveaway to one of my readers. In return, I agreed to include information about their site in my post. I did not receive any further compensation for this post.

Please take some time to check out what others were inspired to blog about this week, at

  2. Hi Troy! I have been following for awhile. Our winter has been so mild this year, My garden is growing like weeds. In fact my weeds are growing like a garden! a little greenhouse would be a nice addition. I think I would have to grow some greens. (just trying to get into the G mood). Thank you for the opportunity, Karyn

  3. A wonderful collection of 'G' words - such a shame the CSN people didn't spell 'Juliana' with a 'G'! - but no point in me joining in the generous giveaway since I live in England!

    On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday this week! :)

  6. Such GENEROSITY! Even though my name's green, I hardly have a green thumb, I'm afraid, so I'd cede it to the wife.

  7. What a fabulous Giveaway! Just in time for Spring too! Definitely consider me in the running :-) I have been wanting to start an herb garden so that I can cook all of my newly discovered homemade recipes with fresh herbs! This would be perfect!

    I will be clicking follow in a few seconds and then heading over to blog about your contest to my readers as well!

  8. Hi Troy - I have been following and enjoying your blog for a while now - well since I first found out about you. Purple orchid trees abound here in SW Florida, but white ones are harder to come by. I have some seeds. And another fascinating flower called Scarlet Hibiscus, which actually grows all the time in water. I have some seeds from that too. THAT is what I would grow in the little greenhouse if I were to win it. If not, the luck of the Irish to whomever does! Thanks for the fun.

  14. Love that greenhouse and I like to grow herbs oh and lots of mint for ice tea in the hot summer. I like to cook so I like all sorts of different types of fresh herbs to add to salads etc. I have a small patio on my condo and I love to plant all sorts of bright flowers in the summer in colorful pots and lots of Mums in the Fall. I wish I had more room to grown all I would like to grown. It sure is fun playing in the dirt no matter how small or large the space:) Please enter my name in your giveaway.

  19. Of course you know I'm a follower - and that greenhouse would be great for starting little seedling tomato plants! I also have a few seeds produced from a teeny tiny pine cone and I'd like to see if I could grow more of the plants that produced the teeny tiny pinecones! How cool is that? And I'm going to devote a post to your giveaway right now! I would love to win, but not if I get disqualified from winning the rooster plates your wife is giving away!!! EEKS! I must have those plates!

  21. Hi Troy,
    I would love to win that sweet little greenhouse. First I'd put it on my porch to harden off veggies and flowers for home and special flowers for the Garden Club. Then during the summer I'd use it to root cuttings. Fall I'm not so sure, but I'd think of something! Winter my house plants would love it cuz part of our upstairs isn't heated.

  27. Okay - what I would grow in this greenhouse.

    My grandson who is 9 - we plant some type of garden every year. I think we would plant some herbs in it. Mint, parsley, chives, etc - then when we needed it to cook - we'd just go out and get them fresh!

  63. Thank you so much for this fabulous giveaway Troy. I've never had a greenhouse but believe I would try my hand at some roses. I don't seem to have any luck with them out in the yard. Not sure why but they never do well.

    I also have a giveaway going on at my blog and would love if it you stopped by and entered.

  65. Hi Troy...

    Oooh...what a fabulous giveaway, my friend! I just adore that little two-tiered greenhouse! I could really use it too! I must admit that I don't have much of a green thumb and could use all the help that I can get! Hehe!

    The first thing that came to mind that I would grow are some of my favorite herbs! I've been wanting a herb garden for some time now...and have even started a few plants but they had such sad endings! Eeeks! The herbs really wouldn't take up that much room so I think I would try some potted tomato plants...mmm, there's nothing like a homegrown tomato!!!

    Please add my name to your giveaway pot! I am a follower of your delightful and entertaining blog! I'm also going to try and join in with your Tuesday Trivia party this coming Tuesday! Thank you so much for hosting this fabulous greenhouse giveaway, Troy!!! Gotta love that letter "G"! Hehe!

    Thank you so much!
