Now it’s your turn.  I cannot wait to see your creative, beautiful, imperfect homes.  Did you notice all the wonderful imperfections in my home? Be sure to leave a few comments at some of the places you visit.  I’ll leave this post up for a few days so we’ll have time to browse.  I want to thank BooMama again for entrusting me with the tour of tours!

Remember, all you need to do is enter the PERMALINK to your tour post into the place after you click some button down there.  I amaze me with my clarity of words.

If you have any questions about the tour or if your link is gone Click here. Don’t forget to leave a comment to enter to win your choice of this bag or this bag {5 winners}  Special thanks to DaySpring for sponsoring this post, for providing the door prizes, and for providing us with beautiful, meaningful home decor.

PS, for those of you asking why I have no comments on the old posts, I just moved to WordPress Saturday, like 2 days ago and ding a ling Blogger is not letting us import your  84,000 comments.  And the comments are like half the blog.  And they are the fun part.  And I am sad about it.  And hopefully they will be back soon.

  16. Hey Nester! (We met at the very first Blissdom) I know how to fix that pesky WordPress comment transfer problem. Email me if you want to know. It’s a bit techy, but not impossible to do.

    P.S. Your stuff is so inspiring. In fact, it inspired me to get off my rear and finally (FINALLY!) decorate my entry way. It’s been downhill from there, to the point that my husband now calls Goodwill my Crackwill, I’m always there scoping for decorating finds. Thanks for helping me turn my house into a home!
