No Place Like Home

Home is where friendships are formed and families are grown;
Where joy is shared and true love is known;
Where memories are made and seeds of life are sown. 
This is the place that people call home. ~ Author unknown

Welcome to No Place Like Home and Happy Memorial Day to all my American friends! I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend.

I think some of you got the wrong message last week about my blog party.
I am not stopping the party for the summer months, only the features

The other day I set a table with some peach and coral pink teacups and I made a cake to enjoy with our tea. 

This Irish Tea Cake recipe came from Elizabeth at The Daisy Fields and it turned out wonderfully well. 

Add a dollop of whipped cream with some strawberry preserves and you have a simple but tasty dessert to enjoy with your beverage. If you missed that post simply click here to visit it.

Now, on to my features from last week's party. 
Last week's party served up a plethora of ideas, DIY's and recipes. They were all splendid and thank you so much for sharing. I am honoured that you linked up to my party. You are a wonderfully talented group of ladies!

With rhubarb season upon us, why not make up a batch of these wonderful Rhubarb Cinnamon muffins, a recipe shared by Thelma @ Thel's Kitchen.

Trisha @ American Honey Home shared her adorable pump house which she and her hubby decorated. Too cute!

Bernideen @ Bernideen's Tea Time, Cottage and Garden shared an old ladder decorated with birdhouses for her garden. I think this is adorable!

Carrie @ Teatime Journeys shared a lovely Tour of Italy Tea. Everything looked wonderful from her setting to the meal itself.

You all know how my heart goes pitter-pat for pretty china and red/pink transferware. Debbie @ Debbie-Dabble scored when she found these JB Old Britain Castles dishes while out thrifting.

Julie @ Julie's Lifestyle shared a delicious Salisbury Steak recipe. Yum!

And for dessert why not try making Elizabeth's Mini Wimbledon Cakes.

Congratulations everyone and thank you ladies for participating last week. 

As a courtesy, it would be nice if you would 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
