Open House party- blog called “French Kissed”

One evening right after moving into our new home I went on-line searching for decorating ideas.  While searching for French Design I came across the blog  French Kissed.  At this time I had never heard of decorating blogs.  This opened up a whole new world for me and I was hooked.  That evening I looked at every single post from French Kissed  and did not go to bed until after 2:00 AM.
Jermaine’s blog is still one of my all time favorites and her home exudes style and French elegance like no other.  She is a stager and stylist for some of the most amazing properties and frequently uses decorative objects from her own home for the photo shoot.  Her philosophy is “You do not have to be wealthy to live richly” and she proves this with many of her beautiful things coming from flea markets and thrift stores.
  I hope you enjoy the tour.




Isn’t her photography beautiful?






I had to include these Christmas photos. How fabulous is this?

Thank you Jermaine!
On to the Linky party…
Thank you so much for joining the Open House party.  I really try to get to every post you have linked
and leave a comment.  As the party grows I realize there are just not enough hours in the day for me to visit everyone.  I feel tremendously guilty for this.
Please know how very much I appreciate each and every one of you.  I really hope you don’t consider me rude or thoughtless and that you understand that sometimes LIFE gets in the way.
Thank you for understanding!
