Open House Party – Rita at  May Day

Welcome to the first Open House Party.
I hope everyone had a wonderful NewYears and I can’t wait to see
all your upcoming projects for 2012.
 Thank you so much for visiting!
I am excited to be featuring the beautiful home of  Rita at  May Days as the first home tour for 2012.  I was hooked on Rita’s blog the moment I saw her header with a wall of amazing blue and white transferware.
Thank you Rita for sharing your lovely home with us.
  Enjoy the tour.
I feel like we are kindred spirits.
See the creative way she used a chicken feeder to display plates?
Rita and her husband created all this wonderful storage using cabinets from her nieces kitchen remodel.
I hope you enjoyed the tour and please visit  May Days to see more of this
pretty home and Rita’s amazing collections.

  4. Beautiful home Rita has! I love the blue and white dishes especially the flow blue ones and my favorite part of the house is the cabinets with chicken wire front. It's a great storage for dishes….Christine

  5. Sherry, thank you for featuring May Days beautiful home. I'm one of her long time followers. I enjoyed seeing that amazing storage cabinet in the kitchen and the clever use of the feeder. That blue cabinet is gorgeous as are the features in her home.

  6. Thanks so much, Sherry.
    I love her millions of blue and white plates around her hutch…I noticed the clear glass collection inside the hutch doesn't distract from her plates. Very smart….and pretty.

  7. Happy New Year Sherry! You know how much I love blue and white transferware. Rita's entry is simply gorgeous. The plate rack is brilliant.

    Thanks so much for hosting this fab party. I am all linked up.

  10. Hi Sherry,
    Thanks for the tour of this beautiful home. Love all her plates so fabulously displayed.
    Thanks again for the heads up about the magazine. Still having a hard time finding it in my neck of the woods though. Thanks for hosting. ~Delores

  11. I love Rita's house, it's gorgeous and I just love her wall filled with blue and white transfer plates and what she did when her niece redid her kitchen. Lovely house. Thank you for hosting and have a great New Year.

  12. Hi Sherry, Somehow I didn't realize you were going to feature my home. I thought just one picture of one of my rooms along with many from others. I'm overwhelmed with this special feature as well as all the very generous comments. You are so gracious to showcase MAY DAYS on your beautiful blog. You can see that I'm no minimalist either! Thank you, thank you.
    (((Hugs)) to all!

  13. I don't know why blue isn't my favorite color??? After seeing Rita's home I am absolutely in love with blue again. I don't know if it can knock green out of the water but it's pretty darn fab when done right…like this home. Thanks so much for the link up…love coming here!

  14. I loved all the plates on that wall. Super cool!
    Good morning! I linked up my Sweet & Salty Neighbor Gifts tutorial. Also, I added a link to my posts that were top-ranked by my readers-Favorite Posts of 2011. Hope you enjoy and thanks for hosting the party!

  17. Oh, all the beautiful blue and white! So lovely. And I'll bet you felt as if you'd come home when you found her blog!

    I'm linking up a tiny little project–about the only thing I've accomplished so far this year! Better something small than nothing at all, I suppose. Thanks so much for hosting!
