Rendering Winner Announced

Congrats goes out to Michael Golden (aka MichaelG60), who has won the framed rendering of the west yard, signed by Matt Blashaw. What a special keepsake from this year’s renovation project!

I wanted to alert you to one of our best (and easiest!) how-to projects, now being promoted on the Made + Remade blog. Please pop over there to take a look at the step-by-step instructions we’ve posted — it only takes one day to create a pebble-filled winding path just like the one that leads from the Blog Cabin 2013 front porch to the grape vine-shaded pergola. Enjoy!

  4. Congrats to Michael Golden, are you from Elkin?
    I will enjoy this Blog Cabin as my "Ya Ya Sisterhood Cabin". I plan to be sitting on that porch and watching sunset with my girlfriends for many years. It will also be a great enjoyment for my grandchildren.

  8. i could not get my computer to pick up yesterday so i tried it out first. hello everyone. the first thing i would do is to thank Lord Jesus Christ for it is because of him this beautiful home-land-furniture was won by my husband and me. the second thing i/we would do is to Thank and hug everyone there no matter who. it seems like yesterday we started this and all the changes we were getting in store for and how we thought what it would look like and it would never be finished and the contest would begin and ?sadly end. the home-yard-furniture and water/pier are just as breath taking as can be. to pick out something would be impossible-it is all winners. the game could not be any funnier/better than with Chris Grundy. everytime you look at it it would make you smile good luck everyone Michelle

    • You're right, Michelle, it IS sadly ending today, and somebody's going to win this wonderful place we watched grow up from the foundation. This house is extra bolstered from winds and lifted from rushing waters~~such a beauty and we had a part in making her so! Every year and Blog Cabin~~~this is my 3rd~~~we reach this last day with such mixed emotions. It's sad to say goodbye, but we're excited, we faithful Bloggies, waiting to hear where the new Blog Cabin will be! No, we don't stop! Soon as we know the new location, we're ON IT!! No time to waste…. I wish you and yours God's special touch, provision and abundant blessings, Bogartandbacall! I know this past year has been difficult for you, but i also know that God is faithful and will continue to hold you…. Stay with us! If one of us Bloggies doesn't win this one~~we have another one, around the corner!B):D:p;)xD<3 Kitty
