House TalkN is a fun lookiloo at houses, houses, houses. It will answer pressing questions like, "When folks build a McMansion on a small lot, what are they compensating for?" or "Was the real estate agent drunk when they staged this house?" or "Why don't the Smiths' ever leave their drapes open when I am on a harmless walk-by?"

I Would "Say Anything" For A House Tour!

*Join me on Instagram and share your favorite #hometownhouses.

"SAY ANYTHING"

I love this house and I MUST have a tour.
I would do anything.
 I would sweep for you.
 I would water for you.
I would be a gracious guest.

I would greet your neighbors.
Call me.
I would wait patiently.

    1. Friends and neighbors should take cover.
      You are lucky we live so far apart because your house totally makes me swoon.
      If you ever want to show it off in a guest post, bring it on!
      Thank you, Jessica!

  10. I love it. I have some serious house crushes myself. I try to let my own home know about them though. I don't want any hurt feelings.

    When I finally meet the people who own the other homes I tell them about my secret love affair with their home. Some people are thrilled while others look like maybe it's time for the protective order. But it's all ok, true love can't be stopped.

    1. I know the feeling! The folks who live in this gem came to my kiddos school this year and I had to profess my house love to them!
