A Win From Nel Whatmore

Imagine my surprise when the above photo appeared in my inbox!


I'd completely forgotten about it. Today's mail delivery brought these all the way from England! Nel Whatmore is an amazing artist! Her paintings are just beautiful and I hope you will go to HERE to see her work and if painting isn't enough she designs fabric for Freespirit too! Thanks Nel!!

Our home is under a new contract and is a new listing as of this past Monday. I got a call yesterday that an agent wishes to show the house today, 6:00 p.m. the eve of Thanksgiving. Seriously?! While I'm thankful we do have somebody coming to look at our home the timing is horrible and besides that it is dark at 6:00 so what could they possibly see outside? At least our home will smell like pumpkin pie! UPDATE!! They cancelled and decided to wait until after the holiday.
Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Congrats on the win
Good luck with the house. I sold one on halloween because it smelled like stew :)

Congratulations on the win, Mary and good luck with the new listing. Poor planning on the realtor's part but maybe you'll have something to be EXTRA thankful for by the end of the weekend! ;) Happy Thanksgiving!

What a fun win! Congrats!
I think pumpkin pie baking will be a nice touch for the possible buyers--should really set the "homey" mood. : )

My realtor baked chocolate chip cookies in my house the day she held the open house. The house sold after only 9 days on the market and the person who bought it had been to the open house.

I am so glad you have someone interested!!! Back on the roller coaster you go...our last move was 2 weeks before Christmas lol! We are having a wonderful snow storm here today. Happy Turkey day tomorrow.I went across to Houlton and got a turkey too while they are on sale....0.59/lb as opposed to 1.79 in town. YUMYUM..I can smell him already!

Congratulations on the win.

I am glad they cancelled until after Thanksgiving. Let's hope they don't need to show it when you have your surgery.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Those are great wins!! Congrats~ It's too bad they cancelled to come see the house cuz smelling pumpkin pie may have been just the key. So maybe do some more baking when they are rescheduled!

WooHoo For YOU! Happy Thanksgiving - wishing you are the yummiest turkey sandwiches tomorrow, or maybe later tonight :o)

Congrats -- you are a winning girl, too, aren't you?!?! Happy Thanksgiving!!! :)

Karen said...

I can't imagine anyone wanting to see a house at night but maybe that means they are serious buyers. I hope they will still come after the holiday.

Candace said...

Great win, Mary! Glad to hear you have a new agent, but I'm even more glad you don't have to show someone through during your dinner!! However, I'd made another pie - they say great smells sell houses! Besides, who doesn't want more pumpkin pit (wink)!
Cheers!

Fun win. Well at least you know that someone is interested in your house.
Hope these will end up being "the ones".
