The Blog Cabin 2012 Winner Drawing

Yes, indeed, fans. We randomly selected the winner of the Blog Cabin 2012 Giveaway! For those curious about the drawing process, please watch the following video. Just a note: Lottery balls numbered one through five designate mail-in entries and lottery balls numbered six through 542 designate online entries. When the representative selects the ball, she reads its batch number to know whether to head to a specific bin, dump its contents on the floor and pull out one mail-in entry or head to the computer to type in the batch number and let the computer randomly select one online entry. It’s all pretty serious business!We will announce the name of the winner in late October. Keep checking back here for details!

  2. Well, the San Francisco giants just battled back from a shaky season to win the pennant —and will host the first game of the World Series !! Maybe that luck will extend so that the Blog Cabin winner will be a blogger from the San Francisco bay area ?? ;) B) ^_^

    • LL, Goes to show anything can happen! We will know the winner of the Blog Cabin sooner or later. I was hoping it would be sooner. I even checked at midnight to see if anything had been posted but not yet….I am excited for the winner. What a great opportunity for them to live on the Maine coast. I think with the miles of shoreline on the Maine coast that DIY should think about the possibility of having another Blog Cabin there. :D

  7. I visited the home in September. It is in a lovely area and I did have lunch at the Moody Diner. I live in Tennessee and while it is a beautiful state, I do love Maine! I do so wish that I was being vetted to be the winner of this beautiful home.

    • I visited it in Sept as well (he he – didn't see you there). Lovely place. Walked around and peeked in the windows. Grounds are wonderful, half mile down to the water, and a mile behind the barn into the woods (with a trail). Being Maine I find that scene delightful, but it's always 'cool' there. It will get a couple days each summer in the 70s, but not many warm days. I am curious about how the winner likes the outdoor stuff, patio, deck, hot tub are great, but in Maine between the cool days and nights, and the mosquitos (that's the state bird), I'm surprised there was no screened in porch.

    • Marchingon, I love your state TN too. Absolutely Beautiful state, you are lucky to live there! I'm your neighbor in NC.

  9. As I said, Sarah's winning posts sounded a bit suspicious.
