Blogger Summer Tour of Homes - AKA: Major Eye Candy

Summer is totally throwing off my blogging groove. Anyone else?
I swear there are at least three days in the week where I catch myself thinking it's Saturday, instead of Tuesday, Wednesday or some other day in the middle of the week. Having all my kids home, sunny weather and a BILLION projects to do, makes for little if no time for sitting in front of a computer.
That being said, I forced myself to sit down today to put together this post, because I couldn't let one more day pass by without sharing it.

If you know Gina from The Shabby Creek Cottage, then consider yourself lucky... and if you don't, you've been missing out. Gina's blog is filled to the brim with great tips and tricks for DIY'ers, decorators and craft enthusiasts of all levels. She's always got great ideas for posts, and this Summer was no different. With the help of an armful of other fabulous, talented, stylish bloggers, Gina organized one of the BEST Summer Home Tours that I've seen!
The houses of these amazing bloggers will blow you away. And while I couldn't get my act together enough to join in on the home tour fun, I definitely didn't want YOU to miss out on seeing it. So below, I've listed all the amazing bloggers who took part in this fun series, and wanted to encourage you to go check them each out. Countless hours were spent prepping for the photos they had to take, editing them, and writing up their posts, so if you have some time, head on over and give all or even just a few of them some major comment and Pinterest love!
They totally deserve it.




Oh! And don't forget to check out the linky party that Gina hosted, filled with over a hundred additional fabulous home tour posts from other bloggers. It's closed now to new entries, but the links are still live, so you're able to brows around all you want!

Enjoy the eye candy!


  1. That's an incredible collection of beauty!

  2. I loved looking through everyone's homes. I added mine but its so ar from done, it's almost funny. In a sad way, since we've lived here for 6 years. But hopefully this summer will see some major changes and then I'm just stuck with the ugliest kitchen of all time (seriously). I'd love to see your house added too. 😀

  3. Oh how I love home tours!! :)
