Thirty Stunning Summer Home Tours: Day 4

Only two more days of beautiful houses from  Marty at A Stroll Thru Life’s summer home tour!  Some of my favorite bloggers participate on this tour–probably yours too–and I always am slightly amazed that we’re included with such talented decorators.  We call that being in “tall cotton” around here!

Mark your calendars since Marty is also planning her annual fall home tour for September 10th-15th.  I can’t wait to see more of Amy’s new home when she shares her tour.

Each blogger is linked below their photo and if you head over to their blog, you’ll see dozens of additional photos of all of their decorating fabulousness. (Please pin from the original home tour). Enjoy!
