Laurie and Dylan Blog Cabin 2014

That’s a wrap! The Blog Cabin 2014 sweepstakes period is over! Although I’ll be sad to say goodbye to this year’s gorgeous Blog Cabin, my heart is so happy for the lucky winner who will say hello to wonderful Winter Haven soon. It feels like just yesterday I was pulling up to the site for the first time, in awe of its beautiful sunrises and natural beauty.

Laurie Cam at Bok Tower Gardens

In this, the final week to enter our incredible sweepstakes, I find myself pouring over pictures and remembering what an amazing experience working on Blog Cabin 2014 has been. One of my absolute favorite memories is visiting the Bok Tower Gardens with my fellow garden enthusiast, Project Manager Dylan Eastman. Don’t worry, I brought the Laurie-Cam.

Just a hop, skip and a jump from our beloved Blog Cabin 2014, the Bok Tower Gardens originally opened in 1929.  There in Lake Wales, you will find the masterfully crafted Singing Tower and some absolutely stunning gardens. The bells of the carillon in the tower can be heard throughout the gardens twice a day. Both the Tower and the Gardens were a gift to America from Dutch author, publisher and humanitarian Edward W. Bok. Read More

Meet the Winner of Blog Cabin 2012

Blog Cabin 2012 Giveaway Winner Josephine TurnerClockwise from top:Josephine and David Turner, a Turner family vacation, Blog Cabin 2012.

Josephine Turner is the proud winner of the Blog Cabin 2012 Giveaway. Her winning entry was received via HGTVRemodels.com on September 26, 2012.

This proud Butler, Ky., native and her husband, David, have been married 49 years and are the proud parents of four children. Ten adorable grandchildren range in age from 2 to 25. “They are truly the joy of my life,” she says.

Josephine, who has participated in the Blog Cabin Giveaway for the past four years, entered the 2012 sweepstakes twice a day, almost every day, throughout the giveaway entry period. She was attracted not only by the home’s location (“Maine is a lot like Kentucky. It’s a beautiful, wooded hilly area,” she says), but the home’s rustic-chic interior design. Her favorite room? The kitchen.

“My head was still spinning,” says Josephine, when recalling the moments immediately following the phone call from DIY Network. “It sounded almost too good to be true. It’s so much to wrap my head around, that I actually won this wonderful gift.”

Josephine has received nothing but support and congrats from her closest friends and family. “They’ve said, ‘It couldn’t have happened to a nicer person.’ And to me, that’s a wonderful compliment.”

Her advice for other Blog Cabin enthusiasts? “Keep entering, keep entering,” she says. “The day you skip is the day you might have won.”
