No Place Like Home

"Home is a place not only of strong affections, but of entire unreserve; it is life's undress rehearsal, its backroom, its dressing room." ~ Harriet Beecher Stowe

Hello lovely friends and welcome to my blog party! It's a brand new month and I look forward to what you will be sharing with us.  

I showed off my lovely hydrangeas on the weekend which my sweet hubby gave me for Easter. Click here to go to that post.

I also shared a Peaches and Cream Danish recipe. You may click here to visit that post.

And on Sunday I posted an analogy comparing our lives to that of a rose in God's garden of life.

Last week's party served up a wonderful variety of ideas and recipes. They were all marvellous and thank you so much for sharing. You are a wonderfully talented group of ladies and I appreciate each one of you! I have broken my features down into categories and I hope you enjoy them.

Home Decor
Christine @ Christine's Home and Travel Adventures shared her wonderful guest room transformation. Very cozy and luxurious!

Bernideen @ Bernideen's Tea Time, Cottage and Garden shared with us photos of her charming new home. We wish her many happy years there.

Trisha @ American Honey Home shared her adorable birdhouses which got a makeover. I'm sure the birdies will love them!

Cathy @ 1929 Charmer Cottage shared a delightful Easter table setting including some pieces of my favourite pattern, Rose Chintz. Love all the whimsy!

Tea Time
Kitty @ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen shared a pretty tea table using her beautiful Royal Albert trio as well as her coconut macaroon recipe. 

Gina @ A Simple Cottage Life shared her recipe for this scrumptious Berried Treasure Pie. Yum!

Debby @ Debby Goes Shabby shared her wonderful table makeover. She turned a wooden table into this white one and has it set with pretty posies from her garden.

Robin @ Redo It Yourself Inspirations shared her fabulous makeover on these two old wooden chairs. Aren't they gorgeous!

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
