No Place Like Home # 16

Home is the nicest place there is. ~ Laura Ingalls Wilder

Welcome my lovely friends to another No Place Like Home!

Over the weekend, I shared with you a few photos of winter here on our Island. You may visit that post here.

Brackley Beach 

A little fox right outside our door.

And a simple tea time.

I also showed you Scarlett, my new helper in the kitchen. You may visit that post here.

Last week's party served up a cornucopia of 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!

Thrifting -

Congratulations ladies and thank you to everyone for participating!

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
