No Place Like Home # 18

Be grateful for the home you have, knowing that at this moment, all you have is all you need. ~ Sarah Ban Breathnach

Hello my lovely friends and welcome to No Place Like Home! Did you all watch the Downton Abbey finale last night? I haven't seen it yet but will watch it on tape this evening. 
At the end of the week I am sharing a special post on my view of the beloved series. I hope you will join me for that.

The other day I shared a Wee Bit of Blue and dedicated it to our blogger friend Smiling Sally. Sally will be greatly missed here in Blogland and those of us who participated in her Blue Monday party will especially miss her visits and witty comments. You may check that post out here.

I shared my Butterscotch Sauce recipe for topping ice cream and cake as well. I'm sure Anne of Green Gables would love it! Click here to go to this post.

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! 

Amy @ A Day of Small Things     shared her wonderful collection of enamel ware. Boy! Do these pieces ever bring back memories of being at Granny's house.

Jocelyn @ Just a Little Southern Hospitality  shared her lovely vintage snack sets. As we all know, our dishes make food look that much more special.

Debbie @ Debbie-Dabble shared her fabulous collection of Lusterware. Some of her pieces hold special memories too.

Tea Time & Tablescapes
Christine @ Christine's Home and Travel Adventures shared a darling tea time with her little granddaughter Reese. Little Reese even knows how to hold her teacup like a little lady; adorable!

Karen @ Karen's Cottage and Castle shared her gorgeous yellow teacups. Looks like Spring has arrived at her home.

Janet @  Rosemary and Thyme shared a beautiful springtime table setting. Love her use of little bird nests at each place setting! 

Honora @ Pondside shared a post featuring a home in her neighbourhood which is about to be demolished. A poignant story and a bit of a tear jerker.

Carmen @ Country Blessings shared her beautiful flowers and tips about gardening.

Nancy @ Two Cottages and Tea shared her adorable fairy gardens from last summer. Beautiful!

Thank you ladies 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
