"Having a place to go - is a home.
Having someone love you - is a family.
Having both is a blessing." ~ Donna Hedges

Welcome to my HOME, dear friends!

I hope your week is off to a wonderful start. I have been super busy this week, celebrating an anniversary and my hubby's birthday. I am still going to physio twice a week and trying to get my posts up as well as visiting you all. So I am slow getting around for my visits. Please be patient with me.

HOME is where the heart is.

Our home sits in a very windy spot and I can't hang the type of wreath on my front door that I would like because the wind would destroy it in no time. So I have this old floral wreath which I have been using the past few years. I simply change it up every year.

This year I decided to keep it really simple because the wind really does a job on it. I added a simple gold ribbon, tied a bow, and tucked it in here and there. 

And here it is hanging on my yellow door.

Hopefully it will stand up. I guess we'll see.

This week I also shared my mother's Lavender Rose china at my tea party. You can see more of this tea in my previous post.

Now, on to some posts that caught my eye last week. What wonderful posts you shared and again it was difficult to choose some favourites.

Once again Janet @ Rosemary and Thyme has wowed me with her Spring tablescape. I absolutely adore her Spode china! The roses and silverware as well as the lovely linens make this tablescape irresistible!

I really liked Kitty's idea of serving tortilla chips around the brim of a sombrero. She is a very creative cook.

Lois @ Creative Chaos created this fabulous soup. I would love a bowl of it. Love the rich green colour of the spinach.

Sherry @ The Charm of Home created this lovely May Day cone. I love the white tulips and script-y cone adorned with the bee. So pretty!

Kathy @ A Delightsome Life created this adorable birdfeeder chandelier. I think this is sheer genius and our little feathered friends will love it.

Karen @  Karen's Cottage and Castle shared some scrumptious cherry blossoms fresh off her tree and filled this wonderful Old English Roses pitcher with them. Can you imagine the scent!

Lisa @ Helene's Legacy   inspired me with her cozy Vintage French Style Bedroom. I love her toile and lace pillows as well as the other lovely elements she added. She has a wonderful ceiling which was her inspiration. 

Thank you ladies.
