    • The views are great from every room. The water looks so inviting!

  2. Oh my gosh! That's so hard to narrow down to one item. I will choose, the reclaim wood door that marks the division between the landing and entrance of the great room.

    I hope by posting here or wining one of the items of the giveaway, won't disqualify us for the BC.

    • Hi Nebraska, good to see you back. I thought of you when I saw the powder room. That won't be the one you will be using so it's OK. :)

  4. I like the pergola. Kick back, look at the water & eat some grapes!

  5. FOR ME it's always been the fireplace surround. I was willing to drive to NC if you were going to discard it. Thank you for the beautiful updating and giving it new life.

  6. Only ONE? Seriously?____And….you're giving away the items? Are these one of a kind items in the giveaway? Can extras be recreated?

    • I'm hoping these will have an encryption in the back something referring to the BC and the year.

      You recreate them yourself. Follow the link on how-to.

    • Thanks! I looked up the projects and then some! Very awesome site with many ideas!!!!

      Now, I realize the coasters will be the prize. Nice! I think many may be reading that the items they are "appreciating" will be up for keeps. lol Can you imagine the BC without THE items we're listing? No way!

      This isn't the DREAM home, it's the BLOG CABIN; we've got to keep it together. Breathe and relax. Breathe and relax.

  7. If we win the coaster set we'll just have to win the BC so we can match the set with the setting.;)

  8. DIY and Mary, you are so cool! Thanks for being so creative and for including us. This Gimme Gimme Giveaway will be fun to watch and to see who wins! Good luck everyone!

  9. The thing I like the most, is the reclaimed roots of that old tree from the water's edge. I like the way it has been transformed into a really great coffee table. What a clever idea.

  10. For me, it was the fireplace surround, by the way, how about throwing in the wine, along with the coasters. N.C. has a lot of wineries to choose from.
