Open House Blog Party & Winner




Welcome To The Open House Party.



I am so happy to see you here and always look forward to seeing what you have been up too.

Before we start the party I want to announce the winner of my recent Giveaway.

Congrats to Sarah at Hyacinths For The Soul.  You have won the $50 gift code to
Nancy's Daily Dish.  A Big THANK YOU to Nancy for sponsoring the giveaway.

Thanks to everyone that joined last week's party.  Take a look at just a few of the most viewed post....enjoy.




My post on the passing of Charles Faudree was the most viewed at last week's party.  He influenced so many of us with his decorating style and will be greatly missed.





Penny at  Penny's Vintage Home shared her Top Post of 2013 and it was the 2nd most viewed post.





The 3rd most viewed post was Old Things New where Patti shared her Top Ten Post Of 2013.



Thanks ladies and if you were featured please grab my button in the sidebar.

On to the party......

Thank you for hosting, Sherry. I was saddened to hear about Mr. Faudree. I would not have known if I had not read your blog. I was traveling and read it on my iPad ironically to Tulsa, Oklahoma his home town.

Thanks for hosting this party… Such great inspirations!

Jennie @ Got My Reservations said...

So sad to hear of the passing of a legend; I remember seeing his work in design magazines when I was just beginning to be aware of decorating. Thanks for hosting!

Lee Dewsnap said...

I managed to jump in early today, usually I am very late at linking up. I took lots of photos of my living room to share. I am trigger happy with my new camera.

Thank you for all the inspiration here, I have to dash out but intend to come back later as I like to spend time looking around at peoples ideas.

Lee :)

Lee Dewsnap said...

Another comment, sorry, I just read your full post, sorry about the designer Charles Faudree passing. I was not familiar with this man as I live in New Zealand but will take a look at some of his work later, it is sad when anyone passes away, we have a short life on this earth, some shorter than others, sometimes I am bewildered by it but hang on to my faith as best I can.
