"Where thou art - that- is Home." ~ Emily Dickinson
Hello friends and welcome to my HOME!

I hope you are having a wonderful week. We just celebrated our Thanksgiving weekend and I ate far too much turkey and pie. Too much of a good thing, I guess. I will have to go for a few extra rounds on my stationary bike to work it all off.

This week I am hosting my annual Pink Tea in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness. You may click here to go there if you wish.

I set my table with all things pink.

Flowers, china, and pink cupcakes.

My Royal Doulton figurine Shirley joined the party too.

Even my pumpkin pie got some pink whipped cream.

Just the teeniest drop of red food colouring will turn your whipped cream into a bowl of pink scrumptiousness. Is that even a word? lol.

Every year the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation supplies the supermarkets with Cashmere bathroom tissue with a pink floral motif. And every year, I purchase some. Every twenty-five cents goes toward breast cancer research. 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Please do regular self examinations and be sure to get a mammogram.

These are some features from last week's party....

Penny @ Penny's Vintage Home received the most views on her salvaged drawers. Very creative, this lady!

Millie @ Wreathmaker purchased a wooden cabinet and painted it white. I think it looks lovely and her autumnal display is beautiful too.


Wanda @ Victorian 1885 shared some lovely changes in her ensuite. The beautiful towel rack was made by her grandmother. What a treasure!

Pamela @ playingwithmycamera shared her tool box centerpiece which I thought looked very festive.

Lynda @ Birds and Daffodils shared a creative way to fancy up her rain gutters. She even has a visiting frog.

Thank you everyone for welcoming us into your homes every week. You are the ones who make this party so much fun. If you would like to be featured here at my HOME, you must have a link back to my party.

Do you have something HOME related that you would like to share? If so, simply create a post around it and link up below. I will be happy to come and visit you. NO ADVERTISEMENTS PLEASE! Till next time, take care!

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