No Place Like Home # 13

I'm so thankful for friendship. It beautifies life so much. ~ LM Montgomery - Anne of Avonlea 

Yay, it's February! Hello and welcome to No Place Like Home a blog party where you are invited to share all your home and garden posts. 

Over the weekend I shared a simple tea with some pretty tulips.

I also shared my recipe for my Seafood Chowder.

I also did a post explaining why we bloggers are losing our Followers. You may click here to read about that.

Last week you all shared so many wonderful posts; wonderful recipes, DIYs, and crafts. What a talented bunch you are!

These are the posts that caught my eye.

Housekeeping Tips
Martha @ Lines from Linderhof shared a really cool tip for cleaning silver. I have been using this method myself for a while but I would imagine some of you didn't know about it.

DIY/Home Decor
Lynn @ Quaker Hill Farm shared her adorable side table that she updated for her decor. Love the aqua and glass knobs! The teapot is sweet too.

Cathy @ My 1929 Charmer Cottage  shared her wonderful thrift finds. One of them was this lovely damask chair for only $9.99. I think I'm living in the wrong location!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage is dreaming of her garden this summer. These beautiful David Austen roses were some of the roses she shared with us. Gorgeous!

And for a little fun, check out Penny's fairy garden with fairy lights at Penny's Vintage Home.

Karen @ Karen's Cottage and Castle shared her serendipitous finds; two Sadler teapots which are a perfect match to her lovely teacups.

Jann @ Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olsen shared her attractive Valentine picnic tablescape in red, white and black. The folding plaid picnic table was a great find!

MarilynMountain Top Spice shared her recipe for home made taco salad bowls. Looks delicious!

And for dessert, Thelma @ Thel's Kitchen shared her recipe for these mini loaves of Maple Banana bread. Yum!

Congratulations, ladies, and thank you dear friends for sharing all your fabulous posts last week!

As a courtesy, and if you would like to be one of my features, please be sure to include 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. Have a beautiful day, dear friends!

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
