Welcome to No Place Like Home Party!

HOME is where MEMORIES are made and TRADITIONS are created. ~ unknown


Hello dear ladies, and welcome to my NO PLACE LIKE HOME party! I am a little late getting started because we had an emergency a couple of weeks ago but all is well now and Hubby is recovering nicely. God is so good!!


I know my American friends are busy as beavers getting ready for Thanksgiving but I know that many of you are also decorating for the Holidays.


I have all my trees up but not decorated yet. I'm just getting started really but I do have the ribbon on the main tree in the family room.


Hubby got me this little red truck ornament this year and I'm so happy to have one. I have been on the lookout for a couple of years for one. I think it is adorable! The tree is loaded into the back of the truck and on its way home for a very Merry Christmas for the family.



I love getting a new ornament every year. How about you?


The big tree will be decorated with mainly red and gold, but many of my treasures will be on the tree as well which is why I call my trees, Memory Trees. This is a sneak peek...Big, beautiful red hydrangeas {with a touch of sparkle} and a sparkly gold ribbon is adorning the tree at the moment.



 

From home to home, and from heart to heart, from one place to another, the warmth and joy of Christmas brings us closer to each other. ~ Emily Matthews

No Place Like Home Is A Go!

Good morning ladies! I am very pleased and relieved to tell you that my hubby is doing well and they have him on meds and off work for a while. So, I think/pray he will be alright. Thank you all so much for your prayers! They really helped both of us and our family. Prayer is powerful and it changes things! 

You know, I really am grateful for all of you. This Blogland of ours is like a little community where we all care and share. A blogger friend once told me that there are times when she thinks this group of friends is her only true circle of friends. We don't know each other in person but we may actually know each other better than our real life circle of friends and family members, because we allow ourselves to dream here and play and share with others. She believes the person we show here is the real person we truly are inside. She makes a very good point.

Now that I know my hubby is going to be alright, I will go ahead with the No Place Like Home party. Bless you all for wanting to be a part of it. I know we are all very busy and it is about to get busier, but this is also a safe way to visit one another and say "Hello" as well as get some wonderful inspiration from our friends.

We all have so much to share, and you all have unique gifts that we look forward to having a peek at from the safety of our homes. 

So, I will get the party rolling on Monday, November 23. Like other years, everything pertaining to Home is welcome... Cooking and baking, recipes, antiquing, arts and crafts, crocheting/knitting, quilting/sewing, collections, floral arranging, home decor, homemaking tips, hospitality, refinishing furniture, tea time, tablescapes, thrift shopping, etc....Maybe there's a new baby in the family or you have a new fur baby you would like to introduce us to. They are welcome too! Anything and everything which makes your HOME more enjoyable to come HOME to, for your family, your friends, and yourself. 

If you wish to participate, simply leave me a comment on Monday's post stating that you would like to participate. I will go visit you and add your name and blog site to my participants at the bottom of each post. Let's have some fun, and I'll see you on Monday, the 23rd! Have a lovely weekend, everyone!
