Fascinating, but I'll take Dream Home 2015, thank you.
A few among them: Russian lacquer boxes, French crystal birds, vintage Christmas ornaments, English coronation cups/plates (vintage to new), vintage annual edition Christmas plates, Spanish porcelain figurines, carnival glass, German beer steins, enameled cloisonné pill boxes (animal shapes), art glass vases, vintage teddy bears, classic metal model cars, miniature English ceramic cottages and life-size sandcast dogs (and one cat) are some of the wonderful things I've enjoyed collecting from my travels over the years -- along with some great local finds too.
They've all filled my home with lots of special memories -- and I think I can still find room somewhere for just a few more....
Then I went to vote on the People's Choice Master Suite options. It had been several days, so after reading some of the comments, I tried to vote "Yes" only to find that "Yes" or "No" were not options. Okay, back to the drawing board, or voting booth. Finally got my votes counted. Turns out I'm good for 7 out of the 8 choices.
I'm feeling lucky now. Maybe time to buy a lotto ticket? Then if I win both (the lottery and the Blog Cabin) I can just pay off all those pesky income taxes and move right in. Who knows -- stranger things have happened.
Maybe they'll head over to the Smart Home later today and catch some of the live action. (I wouldn't mind riding onto the set for a firsthand look myself! Now where did I put them boots and cowboy hat?)
Onward stalwart bloggers -- to Dream Home victory and beyond.

And the dream is to win it, though I'm certainly not the only one!
What do I love most? The cedar wood shingles, the mullioned window panes, the planter boxes, the window shutters, the cupola with its weathervane, those dormer windows -- altogether they bring out a look of sophisticated yet casual island elegance that melts my heart -- and keeps me submitting my two daily entries.
The final element to close-out this picture? Me, standing at the front door, being handed the house keys, holding a big check, with the GMC Acadia Denali at the ready to tour the island!
That means with 336 days left in the year, and 98 more dining venues to go, I'll have to romance my way through the list from top to bottom at the rate of one every 3.4 days! I don't think my waistline or my love life could handle the pressure.
