Carnival: If You Came to My House Today

***Updated!!!! For some reason the Mr Linky link is requiring that you click on it to add your link, or see the links of those already posted. Be sure to click the Mr. Linky page to go Visit Others at Their House Today!***

Step right up!

For three tickets, or the price of linking your blog up in Mr. Linky (below), you can join this carnival!

If you don't have a blog, then just look around, and enjoy the ride!

I will leave this carnival open all weekend. But then I'm packing it up and we're movin' on into the next week of blogging.

***if you are unsure as to what a carnival is, or what this carnival is about, click here.***

With out further adieu:

If You Came To My House Today...

If you came to my house today. Yes!
You'd see that I've much here to say, But
The talk is diversion,
For those with aversion,
from the dog hair that lies yonder way.



(And those are also framed pictures that I have yet to hang up since we moved back....its only been a year. See...that fur ball almost blends in with the hardwood.)

If you came to my house today...
You'd see that the sky is quite gray,
Inside we'd be warm
From that cold, wet storm.
Sipping coffee, or tea, hooray!


If you came to my house today...
You'd see my desk's great dismay.
This cre-a-tive mind,
Is messy you'll find,
For she crafts as if at a buffet.


If you came to my house today...
You'd see this brown couch right away.
We'd sit and we'd chat.
I excel at that!
We'd be happy with our small soiree.


If you came to my house today...
You'd not see perfection. No way!
There's dirt, socks, and dust.
Wash pile is robust...
But I'd choose friendship o'er work anyday!

LOL! I love this. Wish I'd known you were doing this. I would so play along. But I'm swamped! Son's birthday is tomorrow; we're celebrating tonight. I have to shop and make his birthday dinner and cake, after I meet a bloggy friend for the first time this morning. Then tomorrow we have a family photo shoot (still not sure what we're wearing!!) and then on Sunday morning we go to Disney (not packed. at all.) ACK!!!! But what a fun idea for a carnival!

mimi said...

Love this carnival idea...I'm going to try and play. "Try" being the key word ;)....I'll do my best though.

Your house looks very inviting :)

His Girl said...

fantabulous post, friend! Intending to come back and see if I can participate... but can't even pass through without telling you how amazing this is! well done!

Amber said...

Can I tell you how comforting it is to know that you have messes and piles?

I'm playing! I'll be back!!! :)

K2 said...

Love it! You are so clever. I love the heart of your message. You always make people feel so welcome in your home, but you keep it real by letting us see the 'not so perfect' parts, too. What a joy I often miss out on because I'm too worried about what someone might think of me if they see my mess!

Gretchen said...

Lurve, lurve, lurve. Especially the sewing masterpiece area and the dog hair. I'll be posted later today. xxxooo

mimi said...

Ok Kellie....just joined your fun! Thanks for hosting :)

Hillcrest Cottage said...

Let's sit by the fire...looks so inviting! Thanks for the invitation to come on over!!!

O Mom said...

Your amazing sewing area is like getting to peak inside your creative mind. What a gift you have.

Lindsay said...

I joined up on Mr. Linky!

JenB said...

Fun! I came over from Meredith's blog and decided to join.

meh said...

Just browsing today! Not a creative thought in my mind...but I can sure appreciate everyone else being creative. Cute idea!

Jewel said...

How fun and good job on the poem by the way:) Your home looks so wonderfully lived in! And now my mouth is watering for a cup of tea. Will you do this again? I'd love to join but I don't know if I'll have the time today. Oh we've got the whole weekend you say...well okay then I'll try this:)

Chel said...

Still loving this idea!

Such The Spot said...

Aw. I wish I could come to your house today. Miss you.

What a great idea!! Thanks for hosting!

Jim said...

Amber's blog link made me so curious I just had to sneek a peek myself. Excellent use of one of my favorite mediums - poetry. Good insight and descriptions.

Love it!!
Your house looks very very cozy, Kellie.

I'm going to play later today. Hopefully.

June Gardens said...

You just reminded me to get out my linen you made me for the season! And yes, knowing you have dog fur makes me feel less bad about the enough-fur-to-build-my-own-Great-Dane I got going over here.

Carpool Queen said...

Great carnival idea! I'll try to get my act together before the weekend's up.

I want your craft room, btw.

anitamartin said...

Love your poetry... so creative!
Also, the last picture of the table in the foreground and the fireplace in the back... peaceful, warm, inviting -- luscious!

Rachel said...

I love the Carnival idea!

I have several piles of frames just like yours sitting around my house. Waiting for photos, waiting for a place on the wall. I wonder how long they'll keep waiting?

Am I supposed to answer the question too?
If you came to my house today, you'd find a mommy still in her pj's who is taking way too long to recover from surgery this week! Also, there's 2 cutie pies packing up shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child, to be turned in tomorrow.
What exciting (& very blessed) lives we lead! :)

Jenster said...

What a clever little poet you are!! I love this idea. Really a lot! Thanks for the entertainment!

And oh, how I wish I could come to your house today!

Tracey said...

This was fun! I love the poetry with your post...you are so very clever! Love you house, too. Very inviting. Have a restful Sunday...

Sandy said...

I wasn't poetic, but I tried to add my link... not sure how to do it, though I followed the instructions. Now I'm wondering WHERE it went~

Sandy said...

I just read through all the blogs & I love the way you had such sweet things to say to each one, making it personal. I've loved getting to know you!

Elizabeth said...

I LOVE this carnival. I wanted to do it, but never found the time this weekend. That's pretty sad, but it was another birthday weekend around here. Next time!

I wish I could watch you be all crafty! I'm really, really impressed by it.

Lori said...

Love this! Can't wait to participate sometime soon! :)
