Blog Cabin 2013 Giveaway Entry Period Over

It’s been an exciting ride, yes? Thank you so much for entering the Blog Cabin 2013 Giveaway. The grand-prize package, worth almost $500,000, includes a beautifully restored cottage located along North Carolina’s stunning Crystal Coast.

Very soon, we will randomly select the winner of the giveaway. The big announcement (the winner’s name and photo and how many times he or she entered the sweepstakes) will be posted on or around October 11, 2013. Then, just a few days later, we plan to unveil the location of our 2014 home. Stay glued to your computer — lots of details are TK in the coming weeks!

Good luck to each and every person who entered.

    • I agree with you. What a great picture! It makes you feel like you are standing in the yard watching dawn break on this very special beach cottage. Good morning Vesna…good morning bloggers, good morning world! xo

  2. Wishing all of you bloggers the best of luck in winning this beautiful beach cottage. It would be awesome if one of you would win. I have enjoyed the journey with you and look forward to seeing who won…as well as the 2014 location! Thank you, Mary for keeping us posted!

  3. Thank you. I read this message to my husband who believes I entered DAILY and thinks I get pleasure from doing so. Honestly, I enjoy reading the blogs and the enthusiasm everyone has for these beautiful BC's. BC 2013 truly IS Gorgeous! The location is amazing! What he doesn't know, I didn't enter us daily. I believe that it's not in the number of times you enter, you either will/won't win. Thanks again for building another beautiful home! And thank you for sharing your enthusiasm, bloggers. : )

    • One morning I realized I had hurried to check out the blog that I almost forgot to enter.

  4. I could look at that picture all day (pause here for a heavy sigh). My active imagination has me sitting on the porch, with my husband and the dog, glass of wine in hand, music in the background, what a way to end each day, surrounded by the beauty of nature, and the DIY artisans handiwork.

  5. I absolutely LOVE DIY network!! Every evening when I have down time after getting my children to bed, DIY is about the only channel I really care to watch! The remodeling that has been done to this cabin is absolutely amazing and breath taking!! To have it to call your own would be an absolute dream come true! North Carolina is SO Beautiful and this could not have been a better location to choose. Would be such a blessing to take my family there to either move or go on vacation throughout the year!! :)
    Good luck to all who have entered, and to those who are truly deserving to win such an amazing gift! :)
