Welcome to the 2011 Christmas Home Tours
@ The Inspired Room!

I’m so glad you are here! This is like a world-wide progressive Christmas open house EVENT! Except, we can visit everyone while wearing our PJs on our comfy couch.YAHOO! My dream!

Because my own Christmas Home Tour was kind of long, I put my tour in a separate post so you could get to the linky party a little bit easier. You can find my Christmas Home Tour here.

This is the post where the links to all the other blogs participating will be so you can link your own and visit! See below for all the links! If you are reading this in an email or RSS feed, you’ll probably have to click here to see all the links.

So here is how this party works if you want to link up! Otherwise, you can just start off visiting by clicking the links below!

If you have a blog or an online place such as facebook where you can create an album to put your house pictures, you can link up to this party! You don’t have to show off your whole house if you don’t want to, you can show us a room, a mantel or your holiday table or even a Christmas DIY craft idea if you’d like! And PLEASE, link back here from your post so everyone can find the party!

Please link directly to your party post, not to your home page. And please make the post specific to a Christmas Home Tour. Other random links will be deleted.

I know many of you have done some neat projects this year, so if you want to link up a specific Christmas project, you can do that in the DIY/Craft linky just below the Christmas Home Tours linky. I’m adding that one as a bonus!

I’m looking forward to seeing the holiday decorating around your house!

So grab a cup of hot cocoa and cookies, maybe put on some Christmas music, and start visiting!!

This party is sponsored by the lovely Dee of Red Letter Words, one of my most favorite artists and women online. If you do not yet own one of her lovely pieces, I encourage you to ask Santa for one!

Thank you Dee!

    I’m so excited to be here, Melissa! I’ve been late to pretty much every party I’ve joined this Christmas; finally I’m on time for one! :)

    Your house looks absolutely beautiful all decked out for Christmas. Our house is very traditional, but that’s the way I roll. I love my red and green at Christmastime! :)

  2. Theme Builder Layout

    I am with Richella! I think yours is the first party that I have been on time for!! But, I sure do love the hostess! Thank you Melissa for hosting a fun linky!

    I thought I could, I thought I could, I thought I could….

  5. Theme Builder Layout

    Your house looks beautiful. Thanks for hosting the party. I can’t wait to go house snooping!

    Merry Christmas,

  6. Theme Builder Layout

    I am so proud of myself because I finally figured out how to link up. You have no idea how computer illiterate I am. Thanks so much for doing this and letting me be a part of it.

    • Theme Builder Layout

      Way to go! Well clearly I’m illiterate as well as I had a linky malfunction right off the bat! LOL! But, we’ll all figure this out together. :-)

  7. Theme Builder Layout

    Thanks so much Melissa! This is my first Christmas in the blogosphere and boy it’s pretty fun around here :) Just linked up our home & a craft :)

  8. Theme Builder Layout

    Melissa I linked up at the very beginning- think I was # 7 or so but it is not showing up now. When I go to add a link it says there is already the site in the collection. Could you help me or am I just going crazy? I do have a link back to you.

    • Theme Builder Layout

      There was a linky malfunction so I’m adding the first bunch in by hand…so sorry…I’m sure you are there still!!

      • Theme Builder Layout

        Hi…I linked up at the beginning too, but am having the same problem.

        • Theme Builder Layout

          The linky images were malfunctioning, gah! but they should be all ok now, they just won’t be the same number they were before. Sorry, I had to add them back in by hand ;-/

  9. Theme Builder Layout

    Thanks for hosting, Melissa! I can only guess at the amount of work and glitches you faced getting it ready for us to enjoy. Your home is beautiful and your Christmas decor is so pretty.

  10. Theme Builder Layout

    Thank you for hosting! I know I’m going to be spending some time with a cup of coffee visiting all these homes!

  16. Theme Builder Layout

    Thanks so much for hosting this fun party. Your timing was perfect for me! I am always so late for parties in America due to the time difference but this was ready for me at lunch time! Thanks so much!

    Merry Christmas and thanks for being a sweet hostess.

    Best Christmas wishes,

  17. Theme Builder Layout

    What a fun tour- I may did hours to see it all…..Thanks for a great party.
    Happy day

  18. Theme Builder Layout

    Thanks for letting me crash your parties, Melissa! Wow, whadda great group!

    Off to go find your own reveal. :)


  19. Theme Builder Layout

    Yay party time! Better late than never, off to find some inspiration. Have a lovely Christmas,

  20. Theme Builder Layout

    Can’t wait to look at everyone’s Tours tonight! Thanks for hosting. (And, your cookies look delicious!)

    BTW, I accidentally scrolled down too fat when posting my Tour last night – it ended up in the crafts section. Sorry…

    Course since much of the decor is homemade, I suppose it fits.

  21. Theme Builder Layout

    oh! wonder what happened to my link up? I was #5 last night… and I disappeared. If I need to do something to fix it, would you let me know? Thank you so much, sweet girl!

  22. Theme Builder Layout

    just found my link. :)

  23. Theme Builder Layout

    This is my favourite link up of the year.

    Thanks for hosting it :)

    Merry Christmas to you and yours from Ireland!

    I can’t wait to pick a quiet time to browse all of these links! In the meantime I need some help………..I am trying to add my flicker link but it posted a bad photo and I would like to delete it and try again…… do I delete it? I tried to post in my Typepad blog but the photos were having an issue too so I went the other route to avoid the stress!

  28. Theme Builder Layout

    Okay I figured it out thanks. Now to browse the goodies!
