Oh yeah, I LOST

Like, big time.  I'm referring to the Old House Web blogger contest in which I was a finalist.  I got nada.  Well, I shouldn't say that - I got nice comments, several votes, and lots of people got to see my blog because of it, so I'm happy.  Plus, two of my favorite blog 'hauntees' won $100 gift cards to Lowes...congrats to Oh! Apostrophe and DIYdiva!

Thank you so much to everyone who voted for me, and also a big HELLO to all my new readers!!  I'm so thrilled to have you all 'following' me and I will be perusing all of your amazing blogs while I should be working on my own house!

You lost the prize ... but you got lots of votes ... and a ton of new blog friends!!! That's winning.

and as Mom would say "at least you tried" :-)

Aw thanks! :)

Amanda said...

Aww that's okay. I voted for you by the way, honest!

I voted for you too! At least you were nominated, right? I loved your entryway makeover.

I think it says a lot that so many people love your house! You've definitely got an eye.

I echo OhA... Aw, thanks! I totally plugged for you on my site, too.

So I'm dying to know... what does $3k sleep feel like?

Amanda said...

Bummer! But kudos to you for seeing the bright side of it! :)

As a consolation...you're in my top four blogs! :) I started with YHL (AKA TYH) eons ago and picked up Bower Power & All Things G&D along the way. Since your plug as a Reader Redesign I've been hooked on your blog. Often I follow links from YHL and add them to my favs, but tonight I audited the list and just you four remain. Thanks for the interesting reads!
