2016 holiday housewalk linky party!

Hi everyone! It’s the 2016 holiday housewalk linky party!!! I get lots of emails, all year long, asking about how to be on the housewalk. I would love to let everyone one participate, but unfortunately, I can only handle about 30 people on the tour at one time. I’ve found the best way to do it is to have  a linky party, and I let the tour participants who were in the walk this year pick their top three, and voting goes from there! The top person voted for will get to be on next years tour, and depending on voting, and who’s on the tour, in some years, we’ve worked our way down the list for the next year’s tour! One year, we ended up with three people from the previous year’s tour! Outside voting won’t count.

So, how do you enter????!!

Link to this party with your own holiday home tour and show us your holiday home! It can be one room, or your entire home. For best chances, use your best picture to link (that’s what people see first.)! Take your pictures in a well-lit, preferably naturally lit room.

This button has to be at the top of your post, and a link back to this post has to also be at the top to be considered. If you can’t link up here for some techy reason,you can also enter on Instagram by tagging me @Jenniferrizzodesigncompany and using the hashtag #JRHolidayhousewalk2016 so we can find you and lead us to your blog post. You must still have the button and link back in our blog post!

We’ll take the next few weeks to go through each entry, and hopefully you’ll get lots of traffic in the mean time!

You can see last years linky party here.

Good luck! We can’t wait to see your holiday home!!

  1. Hello Jennifer,
    I have added the backlink but the Linky tool isn’t reading it. Your image shows on my French Ethereal page with what I typed above it. Not sure what else to do. Hope you can help! (I’m still learning how to link with other bloggers correctly, thanks!). Thanks for letting us join!
    Thank you and I love your blog,
    Barb 🙂

    1. HI Barb, If you are on sqaurespace, you might not be able to enter it. I will try to add you manually, but make sure you leave your link in the comments right to your post and enter on Instagram!

    2. Hi Barb, you have to link directly to your post, not your general blog, and you need to have a back link in your post with the full address in it. Thanks!

  2. Hi my dear friend! I have linked up and just wanted to say thank you for such a fabulous Homewalk again this year, and thank for you for the chance to be part of your tour next year. xxoo

  3. Jen,
    I am getting a ton of traffic on my site from this link party. Thanks for this opportunity each year to do this. I really appreciate all you do. Have a happy holiday with your family and friends.

  4. I don’t have a thumbnail picture I chose one but I might have touched something wrong while cropping. Can it be edited? YIKES!

  5. Hey Jen!!! So excited I found this link party!!! Your tour is my absolute favorite of all of the home tours!!! I linked up here and on Instagram. The photo I posted here was taken at night with the lights on and the photo on Instagram is from the daytime so you can see my home in both lights. Thank you for doing this! Merry Christmas!!!

    1. PLease leave your link in the comment section here so people can find it. I will see if it can be added on the back end.

  6. If ya’ll are having trouble on Safari try using Chrome to enter instead. After an hour and a half on the phone with my host and them checking things out and adding links to the link party and to Jennifers main blog URL it still wasn’t working. Chrome went right through. I hope this helps. <3
