Home Tour Part 2

Hi everyone. 
 I hope you are having a great week.

In my last post I showed you a couple of the homes
we toured last weekend at the Homearama.  Here are
some random pictures taken of the other homes. 

Did you know the blue demijohns are rare and quite a bit more expensive
than the green ones?   I have looked for years for one and have only
seen two and both were over $350! 

This was a strange room to me.  The ceiling was pretty but the drapes and
wall color didn't seem to match at all.  There was also a rustic stacked stone
column dividing the room.

Subway fabric stretched on two rods.

 My granddaughters would love this American Girl room

The homes were decorated nicely but I can't say I was blown away
by any of them.  Some of the rooms were sparsely furnished and
many windows were left bare.  I am sure the economy and the
slow home market greatly influenced the decorating budget. 

It was still fun to tour the homes and all the proceeds went to

On another note...

The Open House Party will be back starting the evening of  May 2nd and
I am looking for homes to feature at the party.  If you would like your
home to be included send me an email at

thanks for doing pictures Sherry. It's fun to tour them. Was that a real demi-john or fake? Loving this rain this morning but glad it's today not yesterday. xo

Love this home tour! Thanks for taking the time to share all of them with us. I don't live in your area, so I would've never gotten to see this without your help! I really liked that blue and yellow bedroom. The walls were done so cute and the shutters beside the windows was clever.

Great photos. I love that ceiling too, but as you say mnothing seems to 'go'. The rooms are WAY too bare for my taste too Sherry ;o)

Love the interior shutters on those windows! I have to do this somewhere in my house.

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

What a beautiful kitchen and I love the bedrooms, especially the one with the painted and distressed furniture!

Sherry - I really like that kitchen! It is the same here-the models (what there are of them) are not anything like they used to be...just modestly done. xo Diana

It does seem like the gorgeous ceiling and drapes are mismatched. A shame, I really do love the ceiling. I LOVE the kitchen, the island is terrific! Thanks for sharing this, Sherry!
