Home and Garden Thursday
3rd Thursday – Crafting
It seems to me that this summer is flying by so very fast. I was in the grocery store yesterday and saw a mother and her child looking over the list of items they needed for school. In our area, school will begin three weeks! What happened to summer vacation being June-July-August! I remember school starting after Labor Day.
I have found great delight in the Guest Posts these last few weeks and look forward to the ones planned ahead – there are a few weeks that are open – if you’re interested in sharing your story, a tip or what ever’s on your heart – I’d love to hear from you – many of you have expressed your appreciation for those who have shared. When the series is over I will put together all of the ideas into one post – I think it will be full of charm and insight.
Having spent a couple weeks sharing my love for Anne Shirley, the Delightsome character created by L.M. Montgomery, I was so charmed to find this book, ‘Looking for Anne of Green Gables – The Story of L.M. Montgomery and her Literary Classic”. I have been captivated by people, places and times gone by.
This past week I shared with you my new French Bottle Rack a beautiful, large reproduction that I found at our friend Amy’s online store – Maison Decor. Her blog is quite Delightful too! She will be sharing soon with us in the summer Guest Post series.
Beyond Delighted – that is how I would describe my experience in my first solo attempts at making homemade soap using The Natural Soap Chef for the recipes and as a guide – a fantastic book to which the author states, ‘if you can read this book, you can make soap’. She was right!
Our Guest Post last week was shared by our Dear Friend, Carol at Polka Dot Closet – so very many of you were quite Delighted by her post and have shared that she is one of your favorite bloggers – I agree. She not only is very creative – but she shares wonderful tips and tutorials on her blog.
Here are the Highlights from last week’s party:
I remember the Home Schooling days when my children were younger and we read through the Laura Ingalls Wilder series of books – how they transported our imagination and delighted our heart. Miriam from Be Book Bound created a beautiful Apple Pie themed celebration of Laura’s book, ‘Little House in the Big Woods’. The apple orchard seemed an ethereal, idyllic setting – I love the colors and the very clever frames hanging in the trees – if you missed this one – stop on by – you’ll be completely Delighted.
More Lavender. That is what I thought when I read Betty’s post, Purple Reign – Lavender Harvest that she shared on her blog, My Cozy Corner. I’m also going to look for this variety – it is perfect in its stems and buds. She listed all the things she’ll be doing with her harvested Lavender – what a Delight! Gardening can be so very rewarding.
Sandy at her new blog Rose Magnolia Cottage shared an amazingly beautiful Craigs List find – this fireplace came from an old home in Charleston. It has some marvelous detail and a beveled mirror – simply gorgeous find!
Jody at Rooted in Thyme created such a whimsical garden display using vintage shoes and nursery store purse-shaped planters – this is such a lovely idea! This would be a beautiful backdrop for an outdoor tea!
