No Place Like Home # 12

Welcome friends to No Place Like Home! I do hope that those of you who live on the east coast of the US have stayed safe this past weekend. 

We are fortunate in that the storm missed us and went out to sea. Believe me when I tell you that I am VERY THANKFUL it missed us! After last winter, which has left many of us in the Atlantic region with PTSD symptoms, it was lovely not having to contend with another monster storm.

In my post the other day, I talked about HOPE.

I shared about my son's dear little newly adopted kitten with the broken hip. 

And I shared some pretty red/pink transferware.  

I also made some sticky date pudding. The recipe you can find on my sidebar under 'Search This Blog' because I have shared it before.

Thank you everyone for participating in my party last week. You all have so many great ideas and shared some wonderful recipes. What a talented bunch you are! It is always difficult for me to feature just a few of your posts because there are so many wonderful posts to choose from. 

So, as I have been doing lately, I have broken them down into categories. 

Home Decor
Betty @ My Cozy Corner  shared her pretty guest room in blue and white with sunny touches of yellow. 

Debbie-Dabble shared her wonderful winter decorating for the outside of her home.

Judy @ Gold Country Cottage shared some wonderful ideas including what she did with two of her wooden stands.

Nora @ Teacup Tales shared her recipe for her lovely Tea Time Truffles. 

And Kitty @ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen shared her recipe for her adorable cottage cakes. 

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest shared her sparkling Winter's Eve tablescape.

And Janet @ Rosemary and Thyme shared a bit of colour and romance with her pretty tea vignette.

Crafting/Sewing, Crochet, quilting

Mrs T @ Across My Kitchen Table shared her wonderful cross stitch and needle work. A lot of love went into the making of these.

Congratulations ladies! Once the warm weather arrives, there will be gardening included. 

As a courtesy and if you wish to be featured, please include a link back to this 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 

Please link up any of the following: Tea time, tablescapes, cooking and baking, recipes, antiquing, artwork, bird watching - because I adore our little feathered friends, ceramics, crafts, collections, crocheting/knitting, quilting/sewing, floral arranging, gardening, home decor, hospitality, photography, refinishing furniture, renos, thrifting, ect... Did I mention tea time? That also means a trip to a tea shop too because I love to hear all about that. Perhaps you have a new member of the family, a new baby or fur baby, I would love to see them too.
