Have you all seen this?
(If I knew any html at all I would center that for you)
Of course you have!
I, on the other hand, am new to this blogging thing and had no idea that such an extravaganza existed. Oh, sure, I'd seen the buttons on people's pages, but I had no idea what this "Tour of Homes" was and erroneously thought it was by invitation only. Silly me! That BooMama, she's so sweet, she invites the whole internet to participate.
Anyway, I was caught totally unprepared, with a sparsely decorated house, when the tour started on Monday. I don't think I'll be able to participate this year, but I'm definitely looking forward to playing along next year! In the meantime, I've been having a grand old time touring people's homes and seeing all their beautiful Holiday trim. There are elegant homes, homey homes, over-the-top homes, reverent homes, homes that remind me of Grandma's house...and that's just in the 50 that I've had time to tour so far. My favourite part is seeing the special ornaments and hearing the story behind why they're special. I'll admit I've misted up a couple of times. And the recipies! Oh my, do people eat and drink well at the holiday time! So nice of everyone to share. It's really sweet.
So head on over and enjoy the tour! (That's where I'll be!) You can start at BooMama's House and get some helpful advise on navigating the entire thing :)
