My soon-to-be new home!

Pin It Now!

I just wanted to let you all know...I plan on winning HGTV's 2009 Dream Home Giveaway! It's like this home is just calling my name! I usually don't enter these Dream Home Giveaways but this one is in Northern California! ...in the wine country! I've always wanted to live up there! It would be a little too far to commute to work every day but I'll deal with that when I win it! Maybe a 2 hour commute each way wouldn't be too bad???? I'll have an extra bedroom so my blogging friends are welcome to come visit! We could go wine tasting and shopping together!

REALLY, I'M NOT JOKING! I'm going to win this! (maybe I've been watching "The Secret" a little too much??)

Click here if you want to see more of my future home!

Hi Cindy,

When I saw this on HGTV I thought
of you immediately. It has your
name all over it. I hope with all
my heart you win . You said before
this has been a good year for you
and I believe great things will
continue in your life. You are so
giving and inspiring to all.
YOU DESERVE IT !!!!
Have a great weekend....Mimi

Cindy, the year we moved here to Tyler, Texas was the year they built the HGTV dream home here on one of the lakes. A little over three years ago. Of course, as usually happens, they had to sell it recently to pay the taxes. I toured it though. I'll send my good and positive thoughts your way! Hope you do win it. I'm coming to visit! (Maybe I'll soak up some of that decorating karma you have.) Only been to California once years ago to take the kids to Disney Land (long, long ago!)

I'm delurking to say you have some competition on that house! I love Sonoma and that house is GORGEOUS.

I love your blog, by the way. I used to live in Campbell, but now I'm up in wine country...about half an hour from my new HGTV dream house! lol

Shari said...

Cindy, this house is incredible and it would be so awesome with your decorating touches added to it! I absolutely love the way the rooms are laid out too. Good luck! I truly hope you do win!

Brown-Eyes said...

Shelley Jo said...

That is totally my dream home and if you won it and shared all you did to decorate it, well, I'd probably die with delight!! :-)

podso said...

Cindy what is the name of the new HGTV show that your home will be on? Do you know when the show is on, and when YOUR episode will be on?

Steph said...

What do you mean YOUR new home? I think that is going to be MY new home! I love it! Too bad I'll only see hubby a few times a year, since he works on the East coast! ;)

Debbie @ ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com said...

well It's ok if you win, as long as we can come visit. Or maybe just have us over for tea and scones. I kinda wanted that house too, but if you win, it will be alright!
Good luck!
(Big Smile)
Blessings, Debbie

Tracie~MPMaison said...

I'm going to have to go take a drive and look at your new house being built, Cindy!

If the Ledson name is a part of this, it's going to be gorgeous ;) Can I come over for wine if you win it?

Suzy said...

Enjoy your weekend. Suzy

I hate to tell you girlfriend, but I'M going to win that house!!! *sigh*, I sure hope ONE of us wins it ;o)

Annie said...

Hope you get your dream!
My daughter commutes 2 hours each way a day because she works in NYC and loves living at the shore.
But, it is not for everyone and she is very young. Harder as you get older.

Sue said...

Love your new home, I was lucky enough to do an assignment in Nappa, Ca. love love the area.

I'm haveing a tea party please join me, everyone is invited.

New blogger

podso said...

Thanks, Cindy. By the way, I saw the HGTV house in the North Carolina mountains two years ago...both the mountain view and the house were spectacular.

joanie said...

Cindy -- hope you win. Promise you'll share all of your decorating of the house with your blog fans.

Debbie from Nj said...

This is beautiful! Keep up that positive thinking. I hope you do win it!!

mgster said...

You know what...I really want you to win this house! It's too far from New England for me to commute! I'm sending you good vibes!!!! And get my room ready!

Katrina Chambers said...

I am sending you some good vibes! Good luck :)

Linda's Blue Gate said...

What in the Sam hill are you talking about.... you could rent out that extra room with all the blog friends you have and help decorate that house... oh my think of the new things we would need to shop for....sign me up for a weeks stay...

Stephanie ~ Angelic Accents said...

Cindy, you are just too cute! I sooo know where you are coming from. HGTV built a home about an hrs. drive away from me in Tyler, TX on Lake Tyler, & I was going to win it! But alas, it didn't work out ~ and not because I didn't log on & try EVERY DAY!!

I'd love to see you win it & decorate it up!!!! BTW, you would have to give up your job ~ it would take a long time to decorate!! But how fun!!!

BIG TX HUGS,
Stephanie

OMG, it's in Sonoma. That's such a beautiful area. My husband went to school there.

With that kind of square footage, the rooms must be big.

Visualize yourself with the house and the income to go with it.

Bridget said...

Good luck. It would be perfect for you (except for the commute!) I hope you'll let me come visit for a weekend!

You'll have some competition my friend. This has got to be one of my favorites so far. I loved the one they did in N.C and the one they did in Tyler, Tx. sigh* If only...

Tanya said...

I love this new dream home! It is definitely my favorite so far as well!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Oh this is lovely!

Rue said...

Good morning Cindy :)

I love your new home! I get dibs on being one of the first to visit ;)

That's the best one they've ever done. I hope the inside looks as good as the outside will.

Oh and I don't think your new bunnies are scary at all LOL

I love your way of thinking Cindy!! I hope you spend alot of time invisioning yourself cooking in the kitchen, sitting on the porch, and taking long baths in the luxurious bath tub!! I can already see you in it myself!

Have a GREAT weekend!!

paintinpatti said...

I thought the same thing this morning when I viewed the Dream House - I WANT TO WIN! Well, it would be wonderful if one of us cottage loving ladies would win! Keep Dreamin', I always say!

Rhondi said...

I hope you win too! It looks like a wonderful home.

Margaret said...

Good luck! It does look lovely.

cathy said...

This house looks very similar to my grandparents 120 year old Victorian home in Athens, WV. Thing is, that house was haunted & I still have nightmares about that place. So I think I'll pass on trying to win this house. You are welcome to it! LOL

That looks beautiful; I will cook for the blogging babes when I come to visit...just keep the red wine flowing, OK?

pogonip said...

Hmmm...Sonoma...just the right distance away from Reno for a weekend getaway home. Don't worry, you'll be our first guest if you promise to help me accessorize it.

Joy at Cupids Charm said...

Hi Cindy! I don't know how you thought you'd be living in MY house...hee hee...but I promise, if I win this beauty, I will invite you to come live with us!!! I will gladly share my dream with you!!! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend ~ xoxo ~ Joy

Robyn said...

Good luck with that! Because I planned on winning that house too! So, you can come and visit me..lol!
Cheers,

Deborah said...

...and I hope you DO win it! Could you please save a date for me to come stay a week? I know you would be a most gracious host!

Cali Homemaker said...

LOVE IT! I enter thoe dreamhouse giveaways every year.... :o)

Karen Deborah said...

No me I'm going to enter right now!

Suzann said...

Thank you for sharing the new HGTV Dream home. It surely is lovely. How wonderful would it be if you did win!? I can truly imagine how your touches throughout would make it beyond perfect.

Sharon said...

I truly hope that you win this house. And we will all be here to watch you decorate it.
I hope to someday have a house like that too.

TinaTx said...

That looks like one I could live in! When they built the one here in Texas a few years ago, we toured it. It was a beautiful place, but really not that 'homey'. It seemed more like a vacation home.

If you don't win it, I hope you at least take the tour!

Sue said...

Can I book a room to come and stay with you when you get settled in your new house ;) I have no doubt that it will be yours, it is so you.
Hugs,
Sue

Julie said...

Okay - I want you to win it too! It may make you in sane though - because your creative mind would not stop even for 5 minutes to let you rest!!!

Mary said...

Oh I DO hope you will win! and I will be the first to visit! :)
xoxo,
Mary

Lisa said...

Beautiful rendering. Good luck! I hope you win.
