Home and Garden Thursday
You never know what a day will bring. I had only one day off this week, Monday. I checked my email and noticed one from Ruth at Antiques and Teacups. She discovered a Scraper blog that had my blog’s name and was filled with quite a number of complete posts from several of our fellow bloggers. This was quite disturbing news and quite disheartening. I reported this and so did the others, hopefully this will be resolved quickly. What can one do to protect your investment, that what blogging is. You invest yourself, your time, your thoughts, your talent – not to be pirated by someone else. As I do my research, I’ll let you know what I decide to do. First of all, what we all can do is watermark our photos. Here are a few bloggers who describe how this can be done.
Until then – I’m adopting the well used motto, ‘Keep Calm and Carry On‘.
I had the opportunity to review this wonderful book, Gardening for Geeks – it would have been one I’d have used while Home Schooling our children – I have already passed it along to my daughter – to help her with her new kitchen garden. I wonder if I’ll get it back.
Country Woman Magazine shared with me this amazing kitchen done by Christine . Most of the items in this room have been recycled, repurposed and reimagined – you’d love the wonderful ideas shared here.
On Sunday morning Darling Daughter was home practicing her music for church, filling the house with glorious harmony. Outside the sun was shining, the birds were singing and I was drinking it all in. I made Sausage Gravy and Biscuits for breakfast, but for myself I chose to have honey and butter with Rose Tea. This was a beautiful, harmonious spring morning.
After receiving the news that my blog had been pirated, I needed some garden therapy. I had some grocery shopping to do and a beautiful coupon to one of my favorite nurseries was in the mailbox – I found some beautifully vibrant flowers to fill the pots to stage the beginning of our Front Porch Sprucing.
Here are the Features from last week’s Home and Garden Party:
Shannon at A Cozy Place Called Home created this sweet Bird Seed Gift Jar – and shared a tutorial on how to make it. I am co-hosting a luncheon next month- a garden party – this would make a lovely gift to the ladies!
Emily at The French Hutch shared a beautiful garden breakfast set on a lovely white, rusty bistro set – the tablescape filled with gorgeous china, flowers and delicious food. I love the sweet Peter Rabbit Easter Egg Hunt kit – too adorable!
I love to virtually visit Carolyn’s garden She shared on her blog, Aiken House and Garden, her favorite color combinations. Her garden is definitely an inspiration.
We do love the homes Renee shares with us at Looks Like White. This house stood out in its amazing architecture and style of furnishing in a mix of Swedish and French decor. Amazing.
Silvina at Taza y Cuentas (Cups and Stories) shared her creativity in decoupaging Easter eggs – they were amazing and the egg cups she displayed them in as lovely as her collections.
How adorable are these – Christina at Penny Wise created these adorable Kyaking bunnies and chicks – too sweet!
Debbie at Ribbonwood Cottage created this gorgeous Cottage Style tablescape featuring hand-painted china by her husband’s grandmother – exquisite.
Janet at Rosemary and Thyme shared the reveal of this gorgeous Guest Bedroom – the colors are serene – love how the bedroom furniture turned out painted.
Tracie at Fishtail Cottage shared with us her amazing garden and its transformation over the last six years -very inspiring and very cottage! Tracie hosts a Cottage Garden Party that will begin in May – I look forward to seeing your garden posts there too!
I am thrilled each week by your visits and participation – you are what makes Home and Garden Thursday special!
