HOME



"A house without love may be a castle, or a palace, but it is not a home; love is the life of a true home." ~ John Lubbock



FYI- The nest is one my son found for me and it is part of a little vignette in my dining room.

Hello dear friends and welcome to my HOME~ I hope you are having a lovely week.


This week I set my tea table with a bouquet of peach roses from the grocery store and some tulips from my garden. The tulips are just the right shade to compliment the roses.


A vintage peach teacup and home made tea biscuits with jam and Devonshire cream made for a relaxing tea time.


Home is where your story begins.



This is the recipe I use for my Mock Devonshire Cream. I forget where I found it. If it is yours, please let me know and I will credit you for it.

Mock Devonshire Cream
5 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup heavy cream, whipped
1 TBSP heavy cream, reserved
1/2 cup confectioners sugar, sifted

Beat softened cream cheese, sugar, and one TBSP reserved cream with a hand mixer until smooth. With a spatula, gently fold in the whipped cream. Do not over mix. Mixture should be a bit lumpy. 






There were so many wonderful posts last week that caught my eye and it was very hard to choose only a few. There were a couple that I wanted to feature but there was no link back so I had to eliminate those. Sorry!

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest shared her lovely lilacs in a vintage bottle and with a scrumptious chintz teapot. Three things I love!


Debbie @ Debbie-Dabble shared her stunning patriotic tree complete with bears!


Penny @ Penny's Vintage Home shared her gorgeous aqua tablescape. I adore aqua, and isn't this so pretty! Swoon....


Karen @ Karen's Cottage and Castle set a lovely teascape out on her balcony. Isn't it pretty? And look at that chandelier!


Kathy @ A Delightsome Life  shared this darling angel statue in her rose garden. I think the picture speaks for itself!

Thank you for all your visits. I read every comment you leave and I do my best to return your visit. I am letting this party run a little longer than usual for your convenience.

I have been very busy the past few months and I feel I need a blog break to recharge my batteries so I am taking one after this week. There won't be any HOME party or Tea Time Tuesday for a week or so. See you when I return. Wishing you all a lovely day and God bless you!

"Lord, this humble house we'd keep
Sweet with play and calm with sleep.
Help us so that we may give
Beauty to the lives we live.
Let Thy love and let Thy grace
Shine upon our dwelling place."~ Edgar A. Guest from "Prayer for the Home"
