Open House Party


I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

 Thank you for visiting this weeks Open House Party.  I look forward
to seeing what you have to share.

Today we are touring the pretty home of Kelly from the blog  Eclectically Vintage.  Kelly, her hubs and their twin daughters live in this charming 100 year old home.  Looking at the pictures before renovation the home was NOT exactly charming. There was extensive water damage, crumbling walls, cracked plaster, termites ... the list goes on and on.  They took on this huge challenge and created a beautiful home.

Enjoy the tour.....








Kelly was looking for inexpensive artwork for the dining room.
These are actually pages from a child's coloring book.

If you are a regular reader of No Minimalist then you already know
how much I love these demijohns.


The sun room is where you would normally find me.



How cute is this little chest turned into an Advent calendar.
We can't leave the tour without me showing you this wonderful s'mores
wreath that Kelly made.
Kelly, Thank you for opening up your lovely home for the Open House party. 
Kelly is a brand new blogger so I hope you will visit and welcome her into our little community.
Eclectically Vintage.







Thanks for visiting.
 
xo,
Sherry
