No Place Like Home # 21

If Home is where your heart is then may your Home be blessed... John McLeod

Happy Easter Monday and welcome dear friends to my weekly blog party!

We here in Canada are enjoying a long Easter weekend as today is also a holiday for my hubby and he is taking tomorrow off too. Guess what he will be doing? It's time to start painting again. This time it is the den and then, alas, the office. It's going to be a lot of work because there is so much 'stuff' to move especially in the office. But it will be good to get it done.

Over the weekend I wrote a Good Friday post remembering our Lord's sacrifice for us. I also posted an Easter tea using some pink and aqua china. Daffodils, bunnies and chicks also showed up on the tea table. If you would like to see that post, just click here.

Last week's party served up so many wonderful ideas and recipes. They were all marvellous and thank you so much for sharing. You are a wonderfully talented group of ladies! These are my features for this week and I hope you enjoy them! 

Emily @ The French Hutch shared her lovely Spring nest complete with a family of bunnies nestled inside. Very cute!

Debbie @ Debbie-Dabble had a wonderful display to share and this time it is her pink Easter tree and bunny village.

Gina @ A Simple Cottage Life  shared these cute carrot treat boxes with her tutorial. Great for hostess gifts or at a place setting.

Marilyn @ Mountain Top Spice shared her table makeover with lots of storage space in this little table. Great job!

Snap @ Tales From Twisty Lane shared a very sweet tea post using her Easter bunnies and lovely tea ware.

Pam @ TEA IN TEXAS shared her adorable bunny tablescape. Loved her bunny plates!

Mimi @ A Tray of Bliss made these adorable bunny print cookies. Almost too pretty to eat!

Thank you everyone for participating last week. As a courtesy, and if you would like to be featured, you should have a link back to my party.

Now let's see what you are creating in your home and garden to make it a cozy place to come home to for your family, your friends, and yourself. 

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 let Thy grace 
Shine upon our dwelling place. - Edgar A. Guest
