No Place Like Home

Welcome friends to No Place Like Home, a blog party where you are invited to share all your home and garden posts. A place to share your imagination, wonderful ideas and gifts with others.

Home is the heart of life... Home is where we feel at ease, where we belong, where we can create our surroundings that reflect our tastes and pleasures... Making a home is a form of creativity open to everyone. ~ Terence Conran

The calendar says it's June but it's sure not feeling like it on PEI yet. We're supposed to have below normal temps for most of June and that is disappointing to be sure. I imagine it's going to be a very short summer this year. I may have to move to the Carolinas or Georgia. 

Over the weekend I shared a post about adding touches of romance in your kitchen. If you missed that post, you may click here to see it.

Shared my pretty rainbow roses too. Roses always add a little romance to one's life.

Never lose an opportunity to see anything that is beautiful. It is God's handwriting - a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, every fair sky, every fair flower. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Are you ready to party? Last week served up a splendid variety of ideas and recipes. I am honoured that you linked up to my party. You are a wonderfully talented group of ladies. 

I won't be doing features for most of the summer months because it takes a lot of time to do that and I'm unusually busy right now. However, I thought I would share two posts from last week's party who tied for the most views. Congrats ladies!

Pat @ French Country Style shared her wonderful vintage Shaker basket she found while thrifting. A fabulous find!

And Rebeca @ Lincluden Cottage Life shared the beautiful transformation of her historical home with yellow paint. Stunning!

Thank you everyone for participating last week.

As a courtesy, it would be nice if you would have a link back to my party so others may find their way here. 

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
