Something to keep in mind if you're planning an extended family trip to Asheville or just a quick getaway for your Urban Oasis Winner's visit -- consider Barkwell's 8 acre stay and play retreat.

Asheville is known as a dog-friendly city, so it's no surprise the perfect place for you and your favorite canine friend(s) to hang out in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina is only a short 20 minutes drive from the city.

As you wander over the meadows and to the pond, there are plenty of hiking and biking trails along with dozens of waterfalls to discover in the surrounding forests. When the day is about done, relax with some down-time in your private hot tub, then snuggle up by a cozy fire in your fully equipped vacation cabin.

Of course, if luck happens to land on your doorstep, you'll also be spending plenty of time checking out every last detail at the soon-to-be-your-very own Asheville getaway, Urban Oasis 2015!

Until then, keep working on those two entries a day. ^_^

Although Ben Franklin never said the well-known line, "A penny saved is a penny earned," had he shopped in Asheville he might have said, "A penny saved is another penny to spend at the thrift store."

It's the Law. Jude Law that is. Here's a convenient tie-in to my post for Day 16 of the Urban Oasis 2015 Giveaway that featured a link to the Asheville home of native son and writer Thomas Wolfe....

...And that home link, with more historical detail: http://www.nps.gov/nr/travel/asheville/wol.htm

Already picking up Oscar buzz as a likely nominee for Best Supporting Actor in the film 'Genius' is Jude Law, who plays the role of Thomas Wolfe. The film is scheduled to be released late in 2015.

Although the movie was not filmed in Asheville, Jude Law spent some time visiting the city in the summer of 2014 to do research on the character of Thomas Wolfe.

I'm sure that the winner of Urban Oasis 2015 will become Asheville's next most distinguished and well-known resident. Will a TV special or even a movie contract follow?

Hannah's top 5 tips for an Asheville vintage venture are right on the money. Of course, sometimes I find that Plan B -- plain old adrenaline-fueled impulse buying of a totally unexpected and gloriously cool find can take shopping to a whole new level of satisfaction.

A question though for Hannah, who suggests that vodka is the best way to dissipate the occasional undesirable smells from vintage clothing. Would that be "on the rocks" or blended? Should I be wearing the garment at the time or set it aside? Is one drink sufficient or should I repeat as necessary?

However it's done, checking out thrift shops and antique stores in funky and eclectic Asheville sounds like fun to me.

Brian Patrick Flynn in Merritt Island, Florida on the subject of wedge salads, healthy eating and his fall from grace due to chocolates.

Now, how about a healthy sneak peek at Dream Home 2016? Otherwise I'll soon be heading straight to the kitchen pantry for an epic chocolate eating binge to calm my nerves.
