Not so much a fan of mustard yellow when painted in large swaths of a home's interior. More into the mellow yellows. Especially as an accent piece. That said, there's such a magical beauty to the autumn yellows of nature, and I'm enamored with the dazzling springtime display put on by the mustard fields of Napa Valley. http://blog.hgtvremodels.com/2014/10/21/voice-you...

Understandably, since typing with taped fingers can be something of a hurdle, Laurie, I'll try to make it easy:
Could the next Blog Cabin be somewhere in the Northern quadrant of the Mid-specific Sorthweast?

No need to be precise with your response. Just type in numbers 1, 2 or 3 for yes; 7, 8 or 9 for no.... I surmise that should get us closer to the prize. If not, we'll just have to do it the old fashioned way otherwise, with moans, groans and patient sighs!

It was truly beautiful in Maine and I especially enjoyed my day in Bar Harbor. And need I mention the delicious Maine lobster! What a feast for the eyes and the taste buds.

Here's my take on the matter, Addy. Sometimes devoting hours to searching the internet brings up hidden treasures. Other times it turns out to be nothing more than a time-killer. I tend to hang out at the lower range of that scale, investing little effort in research unless I'm REALLY interested in a topic.

In this case, the links appeared before my very eyes (I wasn't simply guessing), and it only took one click and four letters -- HGTV -- to find them!

To see what I mean, follow this link and go to the "Meet The Team" box featuring Jack T's photo! http://www.hgtv.com/smart-home/index.html

Not so awesome after all, but definitely newsworthy!

The Copeland Court description of a modern farmhouse style echoes Virginia's comments above about the Smart Home's "modern farmhouse style" -- so we shall see if this neighborhood is meant to be. It is definitely close to Zilker Park.

I'd say it's casting a wide net around the farmhouse style, but this IS Texas, where there's lots of open space for interpretive architecture. And these days, even a farmhouse can be smart!

Hello Laurie. Good to have you back with us at Blog Cabin once again.

Let's see, for 2014 we had pink flamingos (or flamingoes, if you prefer) at the Winter Haven site. I'm wondering what fine feathered, furred, spiked, scaled or otherwise enrobed friends we'll be spying at Blog Cabin 2015?

PS: don't worry about the duct tape. You can still post "teaser" clues with your nimble fingers -- and not have to utter a single word that might spoil the surprise! ^_^

Just about any home on the range will do, twoTERRIERs... if it's in Austin! Funny thing is that Austin has been on my radar screen for years, but I've never traveled there. Not even to Dallas or Houston, although I did manage to spend a week in San Antonio many years ago.

I think I'm overdue for a bit of Texas adventure, and now there's even more reason to check out Austin!
