CakeVintageIt’s the last Friday of the month – time for another Freebie! Post a comment with a valid email address before 12/11c, Monday, March 1 (Can you believe it’s March already?) to be entered for a chance to win.

This week’s Freebie comes from friends right down the road in Nashville, TN.  After running the online boutique, Knobstoppers, for a few years, Robbie and Angie decided they need to expand beyond vintage bottle-stoppers and include a wider range of items – enter Cake Vintage. They’ve taken the retro style of Knobstoppers and applied it to the whole house, with charming place mats, an eclectic silverware collection and custom lighting fixtures made from salvaged silverware and door plates.

Up this week is a pack of items from their Kitchen & Home collection: two notepad sets (their Cake set, which includes a vintage butter knife, and their Kitchen Notes with a vintage spoon). On top of that, you’ll get both of their paper place mat pads, perfect for spring teas or casual suppers.


This week we want to know: Where do you typically eat dinner? Not those more formal nights when you have friends over and break out the good china, but your average Tuesday night. Does your family sit down at the table and eat together, or are you on the couch in front of the TV?  You have until 12/11c on Monday to answer.  Click here for the official rules.

    I wish I could say we eat at the dinner table every night but it's more rare than I would like. We often eat together, in the family room watching something on TV (very often HGTV)

    Right now, with having only one room, we eat wherever we can find a place. Mostly on the couch and by the computer. We are building and will have a real table and chairs then. WOOHOO!

  7. LuAnn says:

    I eat whatever home I am at, my parent's. brother's or a friend's. Sometimes I eat with my cat, it depends on who I am with at meal time.

    I love to use the formal dining table but usually find myself eating at the kitchen table or the bar counterspace. Cool giveaway!

    we always always always ate at the table but fell somehow into the habit of eating on the couch–I tink it started as a 'treat'……until this week, when my 13 yr old asked to get back to the table.where we can have those" good chats" .
    My heart is full :) Of course we returned.

    My daughter, granddaughter and I usually eat in front of the television,,,, sometimes at the kitchen table, if it is a more formal dinner.
