Wouldn’t You Like These House Keys?

Blog Cabin 2012 House Keys

Time is running out. The Blog Cabin 2012 Giveaway entry period ends tomorrow at 5 p.m. ET. Have you been entering twice online daily? Gosh, I hope so!

Let’s do a little daydreaming today. If the phone happens to ring, you answer it and the voice on the other end of the line says, “You are the new owner of Blog Cabin 2012,” what will you do first? When you are handed the keys (yes, those are the actual house keys shown above) and proceed to unlock the door to your new home, what room will you explore first?

  7. If I won the first room that I would investigate would be the kitchen. I love to cook and would love to spend a lot of time entertaining my family in that room!!!

  8. Gosh, I don't see any of my comments? My husband and I have discussed all the factors that would change in our lives if we win and they're all wonderful. Best of luck to all the entrants but being honest I hope my entries get found and we can walk through the house and property with all the folks who have worked so hard and done such a fabulous job making this a show case house that just can't be beat.

  9. Getting closer to the date…I almost hate to think about it, should I not win…but I sure can't get enough of looking at that house what a beautiful home! I can't help but smile looking at each room I feel like I know every nook already! That big old barn would be perfect for a huge party, get some hay, hang some lights, set out some pumpkins & mums and hire a country band…yeehaw Not that I'm a country western person I just think it would be so fitting at this time of year!! Heck if I win I think I'll go get me a pair of western boots for my honey & I to wear to the party!!! Good Luck Everyone it's almost time!

    • Good Luck Blaze. The party sounds fun!
