Home and Garden Thursday
I greatly appreciate you visiting, and hopefully participating today! Those of you who regularly share your posts with Home and Garden Thursday make the party wonderful and those of you who are new will find a marvelous, creative community.
If you follow your favorite blog through RSS feeds, you most likely use Google Reader, an excellent tool that sadly will be retired July 1, 2013. There are, thankfully a few options/alternatives available to us. Thankfully, some of those alternatives have seen the need with Google Reader’s retirement and are working to fill the need. Feedly is one of those options. This is one I have chosen to use — the terrific part is that since they’re working on meeting the Google Reader customers, they’ve enabled their product to automatically migrate your RSS feeds from Google Reader. This is wonderful, you don’t have to manually do this or figure out how. I shared with you some of this information and a few other RSS reader options.
On Monday, I spent the day doing some much needed shopping, but beforehand I stopped at the local Coffee Cafe for some tea, White Peony from Two Leaves and a Bud and Raspberry White Chocolate Scone. I also reflected on last year’s A Return to Loveliness posts in March, it is fantastic that through blogging, I am able to relive these moments.
While grocery shopping at Kroger Monday, I stopped at the floral section and found these gorgeous roses and lilies at clearance prices – the whole bouquet came to seven dollars! The lily’s fragrance is heavenly.
You all were amazing this past week – so many gorgeous posts! Here are the FEATURES from last week’s party:
Judy at JBigg’s Little Pieces put together the most charming and whimsical tablescape – all beautifully harmonized by the gorgeous tablecloth she found at Home Goods! Boy, do I wish there was a store near me! I adore her sweet bunnies – the sleeping one and the one holding the tulips, the dishes, glassware and silverware all come together to make a marvelous tablescape.
Shannon at A Cozy Place Called Home shared with us a step-by-step tutorial on how she created this gorgeous Easter Topiary – love the textured pot and the flowers! Beautifully done!
At Love Live Garden-A Guide to Garden Inspired Living, Nadia shared with us a unique Easter decor, sprouted wheat. Love the look – she gives you a step-by-step tutorial.
Our dear friend, The Tablescaper put together a gorgeous tablescape featuring vintage china from her mom, modern moss rabbits, frutal finds from The Christmas Tree Shop – all beautifully coming together to create a lovely, whimsical tablescape.
Vesna, at Home Chic Club shared this adorable Easter decor – love the tiered Easter decor using cups, bowls and plates as well as adorable chickens, bunnies and eggs – marvelously done!
Pam, at White Ironstone Cottage shared that she was happily doing some spring cleaning in her kitchen – wouldn’t you just LOVE to spring clean here! Gorgeous kitchen.
This cake by Janet at Rosemary and Thyme is just too beautiful to cut – but I am sure the heavenly aroma of the orange would be quite tempting. You can find the recipe for Orange Sour Cream Pound Cake at Rosemary and Thyme
