In my fantasy kitchen/cooking world, there are several stores that I could spend the rest of my life in. No, really. Like, hide out under one of the large urns so as not to be discovered and make myself at home. For forever.

Since I live smack dab in the middle of Wisconsin, I don’t get the lavish opportunity to visit any of my favored kitchen/home stores very often. But when I do leave my neck of the woods and traverse the state to Chicago, Minneapolis or even far out west to Portland (where my in-laws live), I always make a point to stop somewhere and gaze and gawk at all the things I am mentally adding to my wish list.

Among the stores that I love, Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn and Crate & Barrel rank right up there. So today, I’m giving away TWO $100 gift cards to your store of choice from my favorite list of three. I’ll contact the winners and they can specify to which store they’d like to receive the gift card.

To enter, leave ONE comment on this very post telling me the #1 item topping your wish list right now (even if it isn’t kitchen/cooking related).

My top wish list item (dear husband, are you reading this??) is this glass drink dispenser from Pottery Barn. Major Love. Major.

I’ll announce the winners on this post probably right around Thursday morning when my favorite and final giveaway of the series will appear. Oh, I can’t wait!

{Giveaway sponsored by me. Sad as it is to admit, none of the three stores listed above have any stinking idea who I am. I’m off to mourn that knowledge…and pore over their catalog pages to add more delicious things to my wish list.}
