Nights on Rodanthe (Giveaway winner)

What a blast the table topper blog hop was!  I appreciated all the wonderful comments on my lighthouse table topper as well as reading about beaches around the world.  The winner turned out to be a fellow North Carolina resident who visits the Outer Banks as well and frequents Rodanthe.

Congratulations Carrie!

Remember the movie Nights in Rodanthe with Richard Gere? About one minute into the trailer they show a shot of the beach and the house.  This is THAT house slowly being claimed by the ocean.  I snapped this photo almost 3 years ago after climbing a over a large sand dune.

Now, even more amazing is that someone purchased and MOVED the house to rescue it.  See some pretty cool photos here!

It was in choosing the winner for this contest that I noticed that my comments no longer were numbered.  Random number generator said 75 and that meant (horrors) I needed to count to find the right entry.  A quick google search found me some help and I now have my comments numbered once again.  My guess is the switch to the new blogger undid the comment number code I had before.  While I was in there updating the template, I played around a bit with fonts (Rocky Salt) for post headings and the like.  Fun stuff.

Happy Stitching!
