Are you ready to welcome 20,000 plus readers into your home?

I'm very excited to announce the 2011 Parade of Homes
on Poppies at Play!

The Parade will run from April 4-8th 2011

During the parade, you will be welcomed into the homes of 20 amazing bloggers!
4 Homes will be showcased each day.

By the end of the week, you will be able to click through all 20 homes without even getting out of your chair! No cost, no blue booties and and endless supply of brilliant home decorating ideas!

I'm not going to announce the bloggers just yet...but believe me, you are going to LOVE this year's tour.

I also have a very special invitation!

Last year the participants were all hand selected and personally invited.

This year, I've decided to leave 2 wild card spots available in the parade!

What does that mean?
It means you can have the opportunity of being in the Parade of Homes and welcoming over 20,000 possible  new readers to your blog over the course of the week and be linked up with some of the most incredible home decor bloggers on the web!

What do you have to do to be eligible?

1. You have to have a blog. It doesn't matter how big or how small...
just a place to show off 3 or more rooms in your home.

2. You'll have to send me 5 pictures of your home, so I can get a feel for your style.

3. You have to be responsible! You'll have to be available to post on ANY day between April 4-8th.
No flaking allowed in the parade!!

If you choose to try-out for the parade, please understand that the participants will be chosen for a number of different reasons. I want to get a good mix of styles in the parade.
If you are not selected, It's not because your house isn't beautiful!!!

If you missed the parade last year and want to view examples posts, you can start the tour HERE

If you want to go for it, email 5 pictures of your home to me, Andy, at

Pictures need to be submitted by February 26th!

The 2 wild card participants will be announced the first week of March.

Lood Guck!!!


  1. How exciting! Last year's Parade of Homes was how I found your blog--one of my blogging friends was a participant. Now I'm a follower of yours. I love the way these kinds of events "share the love."

    Thank you for allowing more bloggers to throw their hats into the ring as possible Parade participants! I'm sure that whoever is selected will be greatly blessed for being chosen to participate.

  2. I can't wait for this year's parade! I absolutely loved it last year and found some great blogs to follow at the same time! And this year I don't want to be just a voyeur...I'm totally going to enter the wild card competition!

  3. This was awesome, and I remember it well. I was just starting out. You featured my home and I still get visits from last year:)

  4. Maybe next year!
