I would like to remodel our laundry room, which is badly in need of a backsplash (my darling husband has a tendency to spray the walls with stain remover, so I need a surface that can easily be wiped clean).

How wonderful that you are landscaping with monarch butterflies in mind! I have managed to keep one butterfly milkweed alive here in Georgia, and we do get monarchs stopping by to visit in the summer. The plant is beautiful as well as beneficial to these butterflies, so I'm sure the Blog Cabin landscape will be fabulous! What other plants do you have in mind for the Blog Cabin?

As for a name, well, Mariposa is a lovely name that means "butterfly", so that might work.

I think the bowl issue needs to be clarified. Our dog's water bowl is out all the time, but the food bowl is only out during feeding.:)

Well said, Coop, and in rhyme no less!

I prefer the TV to have a room of its own, so that it can stay out but the door can be closed to hide it from view. I'm not sure if that puts me on Team Show or Team Hide! I am not really a fan of TVs all over the house, either, although I reluctantly allow a second one in the master bedroom so that my husband can watch his favorite shows and I can watch mine (it is just the two of us, so this is doable). Sadly, our favorite shows never seem to overlap.

Well done, HGTV! This Smart Home is beautiful -- I wouldn't change a thing. I love the modern farmhouse look, and the Austin location is awesome. I can't wait for April 15th to start entering to win this one!

Thanks, Coop! Once again I am having animal issues (my ancient horse has an abscessed foot that is refusing to heal and requires much time and effort in care), so I am only able to blog here sporadically. Once he recovers, I can resume normal life, and even think about traveling. I really would like to visit Asheville, which is less than 3 hours from our house. Looks like you are on the move again -- enjoy your travels!

What an exciting choice for the Urban Oasis! I've always wanted to visit Asheville and it is not that far from where we live, so this may be the year to make the trip!

Looks like Asheville, NC, for sure! The top left image is used on Asheville's Homewood Suites by Hilton site:
