No Place Like Home # 25

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

We had a couple of really nice days so Hubby and I took advantage of them and spent some time at Victoria Park and out at the North shore. Hence my blog post called North and South. 

We checked out the shore at Brackley Beach and found a few brave souls enjoying the beach in spite of the cold weather. We also enjoyed the sights at Victoria Park in Charlottetown.

Last week's party served up a cornucopia of home decor, ideas and recipes. They were all marvellous and thank you so much for sharing. You are a wonderfully talented group of ladies! I have broken my features down into categories and I hope you enjoy them!

Day Dreaming-

Judy @ Gold Country Cottage presented us with a lovely post filled with beautiful images and a trip down memory lane. 

Tea Time and Tablescapes-

Jocelyn @ Just a Little Southern Hospitality shared a beautiful table of white on white using fresh gardenias from her garden. 

Schotzy @ Wings of Eagles shared her gorgeous peonies and the makings of a tea party.


Mimi @ A Tray of Bliss shared her lovely French inspired pillowcases she made. Stunning!
Mrs. T. @ Across My Kitchen Table shared an exquisite tablecloth she embroidered. One of the prettiest I've seen!


Valerie @ Cottage Making Mama shared her recipe for Hobo Dinners. Great for a summer barbecue.

And Susan @ Culinary Envy shared a recipe for these scrumptious Caramel Banana Poke Muffins. Yum!

Congratulations, Ladies! 
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 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
