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.


  1. Wo-o-o-w what a tour! That was a lot of fun. :)

  30. Wow What a blast! and a giveaway too! sign me up! im going back to some more tours thanks so much!!!!

  31. Hi!

    Thanks for hosting! I’m going to try and figure this out when I get home!!!

    Love you!


  32. I love the tour. I don’t think I’ll make it all the way through. Well, I might, but then I won’t do my laundry or wrap my presents……..

    I love the bags!!!

  33. Your home is just lovely! Thanks so much for sharing. Happy Holidays & Many Blessings

  34. i LOVE those nativity hurricanes you have in your video. i’ve been drooling over them in the Dayspring store for weeks! :)

  35. I feel a little unworthy, but it was fun to put in my house just the same!

  36. Ok, I sort-of figured things out after taking up three spaces in your list of links!!! 1081 is mine!! It’s still not perfect, I know, because my permalink goes to all of December’s archives. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to only link to one post. When I clicked on the title, an address did not come up in the tool bar. :( Why am I the slowest learner ever known to man??????? Anyway, you can definitely delete 1080 which is my blog address that takes you nowhere. The “simply christmas” link either came up coincidentally at the same time I was trying to load mine or it is a mistake as well. (My post is called “Simply Christmas” too.) How funny!

    Ok, now that you are thoroughly confused, I am going to head to bed.

    Enough blogging drama for one night!

    God bless you and may your Christmas be WONDERFUL!

    Much love,
    tammy nischan (your new and not-so-quick to learn blogging friend!)

    • Glad to know I’m not the only one that loves Christmas music all year! When one stops and thinks that the craetor of the universe took on the form of a man and why he came one can reasonably argue it may be one the best reasons for and the highest purpose of music. To praise and glorify our Lord

  37. Wow! I’m link 1083! I can’t believe this linky party came out so huge, that’s fantastic! Thanks for hosting! Thanks for all the inspiration! I LOVE your blog!

  38. Okay, 3x and I think I finally got it. It pays to read the rules! Thanks for all the inspiration.

  39. wow…fun to see what everyone has done. moving here, but I will set up the tree again, even for just the 4 days…

  40. I hope you are enjoying the snow we have finally gotten here in NC!!!!:)

  41. so cute. did i see framed pix in the white tree? a little thing i would have never thought of, but LOVE. sometimes space for pix is sparse (my hubby is a photographer, so there ais always an abundance of pix), but there are just some pix i love. i’m thinking i could get a handful of med. size frames, add the pix, and bring them out with the treasured ornaments and christmas tree every year!

  42. All I can say is Wow! You’re home is so beautiful. I actually wanted to cry because I do miss our large apartment. But, I’m glad that we have a place to live and really have tried to make it homey.
    Thank you for the tour!

  43. Thank you for hosting! Thank you for giving me a deadline to get my Christmas decorations done–we have enjoyed them all week! Now if I could just get the Christmas cards in the mail! :)

  44. I’m a newbie to your blog and loved seeing all your delicious decorations!!!


    I’m late to the party, I finally got my house photographed and it’s closed! Oh, well, I’m still going to link back, although I think it would take me the rest of my life to go through all those links!

  46. TRYING THIS AGAIN. I was kind of a lamo this year. Thanks for the inspirational white tree…totally copied. :) Merry Christmas
