Weekend is KNOCKing at my door & I should really open to greet...


This isn't a knock-knock joke:.
~My best friend Jack comes from a wealthy family...
perhaps I should say very-very-very blessed!
They buy properties as if they're buying candy at the nearest
corner store! Anyway, his family is planning to buy another 'candy'
and has asked him to check out a few properties on the market...
So this weekend I'm tagging along to view some Open Houses for Sale.
I think it would be quite fun...plus, I'm nosy like that!
.
Have a Wonderful Weekend Everyone! ~XOXO*

Back in the day when I didn't have a little no-neck monster hanging off my hip, I LOVED going to open houses! Nothing more fun than peeking into the lives of others and seeing how they decorate and live! Of course, we were also looking for a new place too - so it wasn't just about 'snooping' - ha!

Dancing Branflake said...

How fun! Most of my childhood was spent at open houses because my parents were building their dream home and wanted to get as many ideas as possible. The good ones always have free food. Eat up!

photojoy said...

Oh, what fun! I love to visit open houses. We have a huge area where lots of model houses are open to visitors. I love to see them all and dream some day I will own one of these. Just a deam. Enjoy your weekend!

Juanita said...

Reminds me of that "Men of a certain age" ep where they plant Scott Bakula's character at the open house to make the place seem more enticing.

Hope your open house visits offer some interesting "you need to buy this" freebies :-)

sofiasophie said...

gosh!
I envy your friend.... anyway, enjoy the weekend and take some pics to share with us!

Bob said...

I'm nosy, too, and open houses are the perfect "fix" for that.

Enjoy!!

Saving Capulet said...

ooh i had my "friends with money" situations during my college years!! lol some people are just too lucky ._. they dunno what to do with the money so invest! gaah.
have a great weekend!!

Charlotte said...

Why do you keep saying you're nosey like that? Got that bit Lenore. Let me know if you are ever moving I'd love to help you out. You are much more blessed with your home than me Lenore as you well know. Seriously though, I will be helping you out!
Happy weekend xx

Liv said...

Lenore, you think everyone is blessed but you, when you surely are the MOST blessed. Why this charming twist in your thinking? you can't seem to let it go. Some people don't know how lucky they are.

Brandi said...

Hope you're having fun this weekend! I have a friend who used to go to open houses every weekend with another friend -- they loved checking out other people's design styles and homes.

Noémie K said...

Take some pics again !
I love your post, love your sense of humor...
Have a nice sunday and thx for your comment*°*°°*

Susan said...

Looking around other people's houses is curiously fascinating. Great if you're a bit of a voyeur, or just looking for new style ideas...

Haute World said...

Oh, I love viewing open houses! Friends of mine invest in property as well (or should I say, friend's family) and I've tagged along as well.... I enjoy it way more than if I were looking for something for myself. That just comes with too much stress...

Charlotte said...

Yes, and you should hope you, or anyone you care about, never know that stress.

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Thank you everyone!
what...it seems almost everyone enjoy 'Open Houses'!

The Cottage Cheese said...

I envy your friend's family, not because of the money, but the collection of houses! I'm house obsessed, you see. I want to give every not-so lovely home a makeover so she can shine. I'll bet you had fun at your open houses this weekend. XO - M
