Rain Chain Giveaway

09 May 2011

This giveaway is now closed!

How about a giveaway?

I don't know about you, but for the past three months our yard has been on our mind.  Isn't it just time to hang out outside?  Thank heaven for spring, summer and fall!   So, I think this giveaway will be a fun one!

Rain Chains Direct is offering their most popular design, a Hammered Cup with Ring Rain Chain retail value $149.00 (their price is $89.95 so a great deal if you want to buy one) to one lucky winner.

Oh how I wish I had gutters... not only so I could look at this, but also collect the rain water... that needs to be on the do install list!  If however you are like me and don't have any gutters, enter anyway- don't forget about Father's Day coming up!  Or get creative and make a fountain out of it, that is what I really want to do!

The great thing is that rain chains are not only great looking, but a functional alternative to conventional gutter downspouts.  They are an easy way to add "curb appeal" to the look of your home with very little effort or expense.    I think they add a whimsical beauty  to your yard and make such a  beautiful sound as the water flows through.  And just think of the beautiful patina that the copper will gain over time.  It only improves with age. 

If you haven't seen a rain chain in action check out this video:

Oh my gosh, what timing it would be to win this! We're buying a house with one of the gutters broken and causing a leak into my new studio (we can't have that!), so this would solve the problem. It would look gorgeous, AND I live in Oregon, so you can imagine how much rain I would catch! (We've only had 2 sunny days thus far this "Spring..."

What a wonderful giveaway you are having here!
