No Place Like Home

A house without love may be a castle, or a palace, but it is not a home; love is the life of a true home. ~ John Lubbock

Hello my lovely friends and welcome to No Place Like Homea blog party where you are invited to share all your home and garden posts. A place to share your imagination, wonderful ideas and gifts with others.

I shared a couple of posts on the weekend. My Royal Albert Blossom Time china always comes out this time of year because of course, it is blossom time. You may visit that post here if you missed it.

I also shared a recipe for Rhubarb Crisp and you can find that here.

Last week you all shared so many wonderful crafts, ideas and recipes. You are a wonderfully talented group of ladies and I am so honoured to have you link up to No Place Like Home

There is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life more beautiful for others. ~ Mandy Hale

As a courtesy, it would be nice if you would have a link back to my party so that others may find their way here to visit all my other participants. 

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 

Sharing from my heart ~ Sandi
