"The ideal of happiness has always taken material form in the house, whether cottage or castle. It stands for permanence and separation from the world." ~ Simone De Beauvoir

Hello friends and welcome to my HOME!

Hope you're all having a wonderful week so far! This is my last HOME party in April, can you believe that! Next Wednesday is the first of May, imagine that.

This week I hosted another virtual tea party which I called a Fantasy Tea and I invited you and my little fairy friends to join me. You may check it out in my previous post if you wish.

There were flowers...

And teacups...

And fairies...

 And Lemon Tarts.

I made the Lemon tarts by first baking the tart shells and letting them cool. Then I filled them with a mixture of lemon pie filling and real whipped cream folded it.
Topped them off with some fruit and they made a lovely little nosh with our tea.

Now that I'm getting back on my feet, I hope to be able to share more recipes with you soon.

Last week you shared some wonderful and  creative posts. You make it difficult to choose only a few to feature.

Penny @ Penny's Vintage Home shared her newly painted brick exterior. There is nothing as fresh as white, is there! Isn't her front porch lovely?

Debbie @ Debbie-Dabble has been having fun at her home using spray paint to freshen things up for the Spring and Summer months. Aren't these ice cream colours pretty?

Kitty @ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen is always serving up something delicious in her kitchen. Last week she shared her recipe for a wonderful Hashbrown Quiche which she brought her hubby in bed. Isn't she a wonderful wife? I love quiche! Love the rooster too.

Luanne @ Totally Done By Me shared her lovely Spring Tea. She not only set a beautiful table but her tea treats were amazing too. I love a tea party as you all know.

Gina @ Victorian Wanna Be went all out  decorating for the Anniversary of the Titanic tragedy. Being Victorian at heart, she used her special china and vignettes to create a sense of grandeaur in her home for the occasion. 
Carmen @ Country Blessings shared this jug of pretty tulips with a view of the stone house  as she related the story of a little girl named Alice.
And whose post received the most clicks?
Bernideen @ Bernideen's Tea Time Blog received the most clicks on her lovely post. Congratulations, Bernideen!
