Welcome to My HOME!

"May your home always be too small to hold all your friends." ~ Author Unknown

Happy Wednesday everyone and welcome to my HOME!

It's hard to believe that July is winding down. The Summer goes way too fast! Here on the Island we try to cram in as much summertime activity as possible; like barbeques and going to the beach. There is something so peaceful about being out in that fresh air and listening to the sound of the waves and the seagulls.

You will find us at the beach most of the time at this time of year. We love to take long walks, ankle-deep in the water.

Another thing we enjoy is taking our coffee down to the park to sit and watch the sail boats in the harbour.

Visiting tea rooms and enjoying a treat is also another favourite pasttime.

We love walking the trails through the woods, such as the Haunted Wood at Green Gables.

And we usually try to visit my family out of province at least once during the summertime too.

How do you spend your Summer?

This week I am hosting my Christmas in July Tea Party and I invite anyone who would like to participate, to link up with me. You may link up here at my HOME party or the Tea Party below. You are welcome to link up at both parties if you wish.

This party is all about sharing something HOME related and your teascape or tablescape is most welcome!

At the tea party, I featured my Old Country Roses china and a yummy dessert which I only make at Christmas and once in the summertime.

Sit a while and enjoy a cup of tea with me, won't you. I love having the company!

Now here are my features from last week. Enjoy!

Check out Southern Seazons French Country kitchen reno. I love the white cabinets and her island.

Wendy @ Once Upon A Rose Haven shared her talented hubby's bird carvings as well as her adventure with a baby swallow.

Poppy @ With a Dash of Color shared an enchanted summer evening in her garden with mason jar candlelight and flowers. 

Elizabeth @ The Porcelain Rose shared a darling vintage ballerina tutu. Makes me want to be a little girl again!

And for those who cannot get enough fresh strawberries, Kitty @ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen shared her recipe for scrumptious strawberry pie.

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments, visits, and to those of you who welcome all of us into your HOME, an especially big thanks!
Every week I choose a few features from the previous week's party. If you want to be featured here at my HOME, you must have a link back to my party.

Have a beautiful day everyone 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 thy grace
Shine upon our dwelling place." ~ Edgar A. Guest
