No Place Like Home #1

Home is where friendships are formed and families are grown;
Where joy is shared and true love is known;
Where memories are made and seeds of life are sown. 
This is the place that people call home. ~ Author unknown

Hello dear friends and welcome to my first No Place Like Home Party!

If you read my post last Thursday then you know that I have combined two parties into one and you may share anything that is home related. What used to be Tea Time Tuesday and HOME is now called No Place Like Home

Before I go any further, I want to thank all of my friends who have faithfully participated in, visited and left comments at my Tea Time Tuesday party the past six years. It is all of you who have made my tea party so successful. You are all so very dear to me and I am so happy we have gotten to know one another over a cup of tea and conversation! I invite you all to join me here at No Place Like Home.

The other day I shared my newly acquired tea things in one of my all-time favourite colours. If you missed that post you may find it here.

I enjoyed my first cup of tea in this cup with a tea biscuit and some cheese. 

And if you would like to have it, here is my recipe for tea biscuits. This one never fails me.


Sift together -
2 cups of flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp of salt
2 tsp sugar

Cut in 1/3-1/2 cup shortening

Make a well and pour in 1 cup of milk.
Stir altogether with a fork until mixed but not over mixed.

Turn the dough out on to a lightly floured surface and knead gently a few times. Then roll out thick and cut with a glass or cookie cutter. Place biscuits on a cookie sheet and brush the tops with cream.

Bake for 10-11 minutes in a 450 degree oven.

Now I am wondering what you are creating in your home to make it a wonderful place for your family and friends to "come home to." Please link up below and be sure to link back to me so others may visit my lovely participants. I will be doing features next week too so that's another reason to link back to me. 

Have a wonderful week everyone and the Lord bless you!

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi
