CHALLENGE: If you won the lottery....


... what would you do?

While I was scrolling through
 recently collecting images for a client,
 I thought of an idea that might be fun
for open discussion with all of you.

this is going to be fun!

Here is the scenario...
just won the lottery! 

But instead of 
winning cash
you won
the choice of a
 second home!

Here's the fun part -- 
you get to pick either

a beach bungalow,

a mountain lakeside cabin


a penthouse city apartment.

I'm not going to define the locations ---
so no city, state, or country 
will factor into the equation. 

Your choice is based
completely on your desire
to be in an 
 or seaside setting.

So what would you choose?

NOTE: each of these choices are made up of multiple unrelated images.

Actually, I'd take the money (cause I like my house) and would hire you to come decorated it from top to bottom! (Ha, Ha...this would solve everything, right!!! :) )
I'd love a mountain house!!!

I would love a beach house. I miss the ocean in Texas!

A home in the mountains, even though I now live in the foothills and can look out my window and see them anytime. I love the city and the ocean, but wouldn't want to live there. Fun question. Sally


A city penthouse apartment. I hope to have it one day and in the meantime I keep on dreaming!!!!

As this is a second home, SEASIDE!!! I live in the foothills of the blue ridge mountains, so I have that view all the time. Fun question, don't we all dream about what we would do if we won, sometimes I think the dreaming is probably better than the winning...

How fun...never thought of this! I would definitely choose a beach house in Martha's Vineyard!

Beach house. Preferably in the Caymanns!

Sarah said...

What a fun question, Alison. It's a tough choice for me, we love the mountains in the summer to escape the Texas heat, adore being in NY or Paris in a penthouse, but Nantucket always calls out to me. Now that we have Sadie, I think a beach house on Nantucket. She would love to walk the beaches with us. '-)

Connie (aka LOU) said...

Ahhhh, I saw you pinning these images the other day. I was hoping the big beach house was yours and you were going to invite all of us to come and visit for awhile. That would be my choice in a heartbeat. Hope all is well in the plaidville. All is well here my friend.

So fun! I'd take the beach house, much to my surprise. I thought I would have chosen the mountains. But as gorgeous as it was, it was almost claustrophobic, like the gorgeous mountains of New Hampshire. So I'll take the beach!

Babs said...

Oooh, beach house..somewhere between our kids, grands and us, so we could all be together for vacations. Wouldn't it be love-rly?

Georgia said...

We live where either the beach or mountains are quickly within reach. I'm not fond of urban locations soooooo, I guess the mountain location would be the one I'd choose! Thanks for the opportunity to

First choice is the 1st beach house the 3 story one ,

then I want to go to the city apt

no mountains for me, I do that once a year and NO, I wanna go to the beach

Kathleen said...

At first I thought house in Georgetown. It has the city but close to other fun places too. Then Sarah mentioned Nantucket, that would be my pick too!!! Oh well, off to the very boring gym.

Hi! I hope it's not too late to reply but this is just too fun! If I won the lottery it would definately be a beach house / cottage as my whole being revolves around them!! It would be in a quaint little town and I would be able to ride my beach cruiser everywhere! I have just started blogging myself ( recently did a post on my FAVORITE place - Martha's Vineyard! That would be the place!

I love your blog and your home by the way!
