No Place Like Home

Every house where love abides
And friendship is a guest,
Is surely home, and home sweet home
For there the heart can rest. ~ Henry Van Dyke

Welcome dear friends to No Place Like Home!

Yesterday we had another snow storm. On Saturday the ground was bare and now it is blanketed in snow. What a difference a day can make! Hoping this is the last of the white stuff. Like Margie, one of my blogger friends said, "Winter needs to seek therapy for its boundary issues." I so agree with her!

On the weekend I shared what the beauty of Spring means to me along with a tea time in pink.

I made a lovely cake for Hubby and me which was a little treat with our tea. White layer cake sandwiched with strawberry preserves and whipped cream. You may check out that post by clicking here.

Now, time for my features. 

Last week's party served up a wonderful variety of posts. They were all marvellous and thank you so much for sharing. You are a wonderfully talented group of ladies and I am honoured to have you participate in my little party! 

Jean @ Delightful Repast shared her scrumptious recipe for vanilla pastry cream for cream puffs. Yum! 

Beth @ Conversations from My House shared a pretty blue springtime tea. I really like her glass tea set!

Karen @ Karen's Cottage and Castle shared a beautiful post featuring her American Beauty china.

Nora @ Teacup Tales featured her beautiful lilac teacup and a visit to a lavender farm as well as an outdoor tearoom.

Gina @ Victorian Wanna Be shared her lovely spring themed thrift finds as well some gorgeous daffodils from her garden. The cherry tree is amazing!

Thelma @ Thelma's Days took us on a tour of her friend Carmen's gorgeous English garden. This is an amazing garden that would be the envy of us all!

Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life shared her son's living room which she furnished for under a hundred dollars. Great job!

Thank you everyone 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
