Recently, I was helping with the Rotary Club of Orleans Festive
Home Tour. . . and as I mentioned, I jumped in with both feet!

I was an organizer and I threw open my doors, and put my home on
the tour! Yes, I did. It has never been done before… .but I did it!

What Did I Learn!
I learned what fun it is to be on the home tour!!

And I learned that I can talk until I am blue in the face. . .
but people don’t get it until they see it!

Your home is supposed to be about YOU!
-Your story
-Your treasures
-Your likes. . and expressions

People Weren’t Impressed!
No one asked me where I got any of my furniture (it’s never the
furniture that breathes life into a home).

They enjoyed the stories of the smallest things I had used to pull
together the room. The things I highlighted, the sentimental pieces
that meant so much to me – that I built the room around them.

For you that can be anything. . .
-art collection from your children
-old recipes, your family loves
-keepsakes from memorable events.
etc. etc. etc.

Enjoy your space!
It’s easy to do, it’s inexpensive. . .
and it’s how you enjoy life!
