Home and Garden Thursday



Home and Garden Thursday

This is Valentine’s week! I have been enjoying seeing your wonderful posts, decorating, creative recipes, garden ideas and more. Here are a few things I shared since last week’s H&GT party.


roselayeredDo you hope for flowers, roses, for Valentines. I shared with you simple steps to care for your bouquet.

Aftertherain1After the rain, and in some places snow, comes the sun. Both needful and nourishing elements. I show you our early signs of spring in the south.

on-the-altar-of-love-DOWNHEREOne of my favorite Christian singing groups is Downhere. I shared with you lyrics, a video of a song – For Life – on being thankful. This song was based on John 10:10.

artl valentine tea3For my Valentines tea, I shared this lovely Homer Laughlin teacup and the gorgeous cloche and cake stand Dearest gave me last Christmas.

cake balls 5Cake balls are a delicious and quite easy treat you can make for and wow your family.

Here are the Features from last week’s party:

ButterYum's Meyer Lemon and vanilla bean jelly

Patricia at ButterYum made this lovely looking and delicious sounding Meyer Lemon and Vanilla Bean Jelly – I am so intrigued, I hope there are Meyer Lemons still at the grocery store next time I go!


The Tablescaper shared this gorgeous tablescape that caught many hearts and imagination. I just love this French Country Valentines tablescape – the dishes and the tablecloth are  just perfect!

sullivan and murphy

Susan at Sullivan and Murphy shared with us her gorgeous living room, the new pieces of furniture and the lovely pops of color in the decor. The fascinating part is the pattern of the fabric on the side chair! Magnifique!


I think we all were thoroughly enjoying all the gorgeous ways Sarah  at Hyacinths for the Soul shared her beautiful collections and how she uses them to decorate throughout her home. Simply enchanting! She’s given me new ideas of lovely things to collect!
