No Place Like Home

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

Hello dear friends and welcome to No Place Like Home!

Did you all have a nice weekend? My poor hubby was sick with the flu on Saturday so I was taking care of him. He rarely gets sick so when he does, it's a very big deal. Yesterday he was much better so we took our supper down at the boardwalk and enjoyed the scenery which we had missed all winter. Very soon the sailboats will be out again. Can't wait!

The other day I shared how I decorate with some of my plates. I also enjoyed a tea time with some scones and jam. If you missed that post you may click here to visit.

Last week's party served up a plethora of ideas and recipes. They were all marvellous and thank you so much for sharing. You are a wonderfully talented group of ladies! 

Here are my features from last week's party:

Pat @ French Country Style from the Foot of the Rockies shared how she was inspired by her trip to France to bring back French Country style into her dining room. 

Phyllis @ Relevant Tea Leaf shared a lovely high tea for some special friends. Isn't her table pretty?
Her menu was wonderful too.

Carmen @ Die Nameise shared the beautiful Blazing Star cushion she made. I love the sunny yellow of her daffodils too!

Amy @ A Day of Small Things shared some vintage treasures from her parents' home that tell a story. One was a chair from her childhood which was made even cuter with her little one sitting it.

And for my recipe this week ~ Mrs. T @ Across My Kitchen Table shared a scrumptious Lemon Bar Trifle she made for her daughter's birthday. Yum!

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
