Open House Party


Welcome to the Open House Party.

Thank you for visiting and I am looking forward to seeing what you have to share this week.
The link to join the party is at the bottom of this post.

Today we will be touring the gorgeous home of Des @  Peeking Thru The Sunflowers.  Her home was  featured last year in Midwest Living and this month in BHG Christmas Ideas magazine.  Just wait until you see these pictures!

Des and her husband live in a renovated 1870 stone schoolhouse.  They have replaced the floors, removed walls and remodeled the kitchen.   Lets take a tour of this fabulous home and I will also show you some of the pictures from the BHG magazine article.


I love the French style armoires.










Teddy thought his new bed should match the big bed.  How cute is this!!



Now for the Christmas Pictures

Gorgeous!





You can see more photos of the home decorated for Christmas at Peeking Thru The Sunflowers . 

Thank you Des for allowing me to feature your beautiful home at this weeks party. 

In lieu of leaving comments here please visit Peeking Thru The Sunflowers and tell Des I sent you.
While there I hope you will spend some time browsing this wonderful blog.

Now on to the Linky Party...






Thanks for visiting.

Hi Sherry. thank you for stopping by my blog and following! Great to have you. It encouraged me to do a post on my own home for today's party. A funny one about what the dogs thought of my art! The home you shared with us today is de lovely and it doesn't take me very long to fall in love with any armoire!

Sherry, I'm so late, late, late to this party--but I wanted to join, even if I'm late! I've re-done my guest room with new fabrics. I've been sewing up a storm!

Thank you so much for hosting. Being featured by you last week was just wonderful! Now I need to go visit the owner of this week's gorgeous home. You find the most lovely spaces!

Hope you're having a great week. Thanks again for everything.
