2nd Annual Bella Vista Home Tour
As a Bella Vista/Queens Village resident, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve passed houses and tried to sneak a peek inside. I love people who leave their lights on and blinds open. Creepy? Yes. But I prefer the term inquisitive. Anyway, eight amazing houses will be opening their doors to strangers around the neighborhood for this second annual fundraiser event. Who knows, perhaps you’ll pick a few design or decorating ideas for your own abode? Plus, you won’t have to be creepy about it. Sunday, 1-5pm. $15-$18. Various locations, visit BVTW.org for more info.
Regardless of whether or not you’ve got an actual engagement ring on your finger, it’s never too late start planning.
