Cornhole Game Set Winner Announced

A big congrats goes out to Alfredia Callies (aka ACDC25) who was randomly selected as the winner of the cornhole game set, designed and autographed by Blog Cabin 2013 show host Chris Grundy. Truly a one-of-a-kind remembrance from this year’s home!

Today, I’d like to draw your attention to a new video series hosted by home remodeling expert Laurie March. Topics include unusual items discovered during home renovations (you never know what could be hiding behind those walls!) and the evolution of residential floor plans. Enjoy!

  1. Congratulations ACDC25, enjoy throwing bean bags at Grundy. And yes Laurie, I find hidden treasures around my house everyday, popcorn in the couch cushions, great grandkids toys on the floor while on the way to the bathroom in the middle of the night, new marks on the hall walls, oh yes everyday treasures.

    • LOL! Sounds like you have a very lived in and loved home, Sam.

    • Hidden treasures are the best!

      Not sure about the popcorn in the couch and the scuff marks on the walls – but it sure does say 'love' to me :) :):)

  2. A fun memory from the Atlantic, NC Blog Cabin goes to Alfredia Callies as winner of the cornhole game set.

    As for Laurie March's hidden finds during home renovations, other than a few coins under the sofa cushions, I doubt I'll be finding hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of gold dust in mason jars hidden around my 9 year old home. But it IS a good excuse for planning some remodeling anyway….

    • Maybe you will find a mason jar filled with treasure in your back yard. My great grandfather always talked about digging holes and putting coffee cans filled with money on the family farm.

    • Hope your relatives found all the coffee cans filled with money, Stormy. :)

    • Lol, I think it was of those big tales our dear grandpa liked to tell. Anything to keep the grandkids entertained . Its good to see you here at my Blog Cabin Lessie. Hey what is your name doing on my mailbox. lol

    • Stormy, I try to make the rounds – 4 HGTV/DIY giveaways a year and I don't want to miss any, unless I win one of the homes offered that year. Wouldn't want to be greedy. :)

      The weather is great here. How's the weather in WV. It seems like a beautiful October day instead of September day. I'm loving it!!!

    • The weather has been very nice and the trees are starting to change colors. Soon the forest will be filled with bright reds, orange and yellows. I can hardly wait. I also jump from Hgtv/Diy. and can not wait for the day that a blogger takes home the prize.

    • Heeeh! Hidden finds are so fun… as long as they aren't the rodent kind. EEK!

      I love any excuse for a good old remodel :)

  7. Enjoy, Alfedia!

    As for finding relics and such during renovation…We live in my husband's family home that was built around 1895. We've found a few treasures over the years, but mainly what we've discovered is a legacy of joy, living in a home where five generations of love has been nurtured and grown. Priceless!

    • That is PRICELESS! Enjoy each day, Down.
