Open House!

You know how we in the blogosphere love parties, right? And one of the nicest parties around is the weekly Open House hosted by the lovely Sherry of No Minimalist Here. Every week, Sherry gives us a tour of someone's house and then invites us to share a post about what's going on in our own homes.

No Minimalist Here

I'm shaking a little bit right now, because Sherry is featuring my home this week! I'm so excited!

If you haven't before visited Sherry's blog, you should run over there right now and say hello. You'll love it. For instance, here's a little peek into her family room. I know this will make you want to see more. Isn't it beautiful?


If you're visiting here from Sherry's blog, WELCOME! I'm so glad to have you! I just baked a batch of pumpkin bread, so I'm all ready for visitors. Please make yourselves at home!

  37. Hello Richella. I'm here visiting from No Minimalist Here. Wow, what a lovely home you have. I love your color choices, so vibrant yet warm and cozy. I love to decorate, but color is my weakest point, wall color that is, I almost always stick with tan or cream and I am totally sick of it. I would love to know some of the paint colors you have going on in your house. The greens, blue and even your tan color. They are gorgeous. I am your newest follower.
