Well, this is over close to Valentine's day
Hope I won't be trailing in a big way.
But there's always another day.
That's what Scarlett O'Hary say.

Valentines day, dream home entry resign
But waiting the drawing
For dream home winner to find

Will the winner be me or maybe it's you?
The excitement won't falter
As the name of the winner is due

As we anxiously wait for the knock on the door
The dream team is seeking
The home of the winner to bring what's in store

The winner will find a weekend of fun
AS the team brings the winner
To tour their home which is done

Excitement you say, but the choice is to come
Is it cash or the dream home
But what matters is you've won


*****Catch the Excitement*****
******Dreams and happiness to all my MB friends******

I love it Nurse Judy


Best wishes to YOU
and to you, and you and you.
If HGTV knocks at my door
They might see me cleaning the floor
or toilet while wearing old clothes.
OH Gee, They would be stranded
if I hunted another ensemble.
They would loathe
me
if their legs wobble
after holding a fifty grand
camera in my abode
until I showed

BUT
Then I would glow and glow and glow.

Hi Nurse Judy,

If you don't have bunny rabbit slippers you will be okay. (Wink)

I would probably act like a total idiot.

I might leave them stranded on the porch if they had a huge camera.

The possibilities are fun to think about. (Smile)

I like Marie Osmond. She has a show on a remote channel. I've seen her get in male guest's personal body space. It seems that way to a shy person like me.

I think that she's just friendly. No harm done.

But, Ladies lets not flirt with the male award bearers.

Leafy, fun and dreaming are good for the soul. Dreamhome is one of my favorite dreams.

Nurse Judy,

This is fun. I like to cut up on the boards. --Don't figure I'll win but one does have to enter just to have a chance.

Bear bears go away,
GreenAlice wants to play.
Dreaming big in the woods,
Loving all Linda's Dreamhome goods.
Years of hoping, dreaming, plotting,
so far winning has been not gotten.
SO once again I BOLO on,
in hopes of celebrating that I WON!!! Razz

Cute GA
Today they picked the winners name
The excitement now is hard to contain
We are waiting now for our 15 minutes of fame

Was it you or was it me?
What name they chose we do not know
Next month they say whose door we'll see
I hope it's mine that's on the show

I think I'm tired I like my other poems better

Green Alice and Nurse Judy,

I must say that I like your poems a lot.

What does BOLO mean?

Good Luck

BOLO Be On The Lookout....for HGTV surviellance crews trying to size up how best to surprise you....we KNOW beyond a reasonable doubt they "spy" on the winner prior to showing up to ambush them....so vintage dreamers have been encouraged to continually keep vigil....all in good fun! At least gets our hair done and front rooms stay picked up during this season....Razz

Glad you like my poem thanks for the fun idea to help pass time whilst waiting to see which dreamer gets the home! Smile

You are welcome Green Alice.

Now What craziness can I invent. Hmm, the neighbors would definitely think that I was crazy if.......

The home owners might call the police if they see snoopers around the place. LOL

You are right, I think we better stick to Dream home poetry.

They drew the name a few days ago
We are patiently waiting for the dream team to show

The excitement is here and we are happy you know
That many would cheer if to their home you go

There still is some snow
To the skier no woe

While the golfer would crow
There is still no grass to mow

In the lake a kayak to row
While the wind still will blow

No garden to hoe
So I'll just sip my joe

My dreaming will grow
AS my patience is low

My Danali in the garage they will stow
All ready for me tied up in a bow

When they come to my house with check in tow
My happiness shows as I just exclaim YO


Keep dreaming

I hope that the dream home winner will be blessed.
By more than just material.
Maybe he will have time to slow down.
And say a kind word to a child or clown.
There are so many who don't find a way.
Searching far and wide like strays
For substance, love and contentment
that's normally
At home in the heart where it belongs.
What a crooked path it takes when distorted.
Money can help if used judiciously when it has been extremely limited in the past.
So I hope that the new winners will be blessed so that they can pass it on in a blessing to another.

---Signing off for the night. Words not by a smith for sure. We all do need blessings though. So bless you too.---Leafly

Laura has won
The waiting is done
Her husband Scott is glad
The rest of us sad

Laura must be leaping lightly and high into the sky.
While Scott has done the boot scooting boogie to Scotland and back.
