"Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you." ~ Jerome K. Jerome

Welcome to my HOME, my lovely friends, where you are invited to share anything HOME related.

At this week's tea party, I shared a new vintage teacup. I am especially fond of pink and soft colours which is why I had to bring this beauty home with me from the antique shop in town.

It goes beautifully with some of my other favourites as well as the Limoges plate it sits on.

I find vintage teacups lend a sense of times past to one's home and whether they are in perfect condition or a little worn, I think they are so beautiful!

Now, here are some features from last week's HOME party.

Debbie @ Debbie-Dabble shared her darling fairy garden. So cute!

Beth @ Beyond The Garden Gate shared some beautiful images of Summer in Iowa.

Penny @ Penny's Vintage Home shared a makeover on her once brown wooden five dollar coffee table. She also received the most views on her post. Congrats, Penny!

Pernilla @ Swedish Corner ~ Down Under  shared her fabulous collection of blue and white transferware. Swoon!!

Then there is Creatively Sam's who shared her adorable denim placemats with the silverware tucked into the pocket. Sweet idea!

Denim Picnic Tablescape

And Dianne @ Shabby Gals turned an old brown fireplace mantel into something fabulous.

I am delighted to have you all share your collections, crafts, DIYs, renos, tablescapes, and anything HOME related. Please find the link up below and I will be happy to come and visit you. Have a lovely rest of the week everyone.

"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 beauty and Thy grace
Shine upon our dwelling place." ~ Edgar A. Guest
