Home and Garden Thursday



Home and Garden Thursday

It’s May and that means I am celebrating A Delightsome Life’s blogiversary by hosting my 4th annual Delightsome Cottage Charm Giveaway! I began my blogging career on May 1, 2010 by joining Twice Remembered Cottage’s Cottage Charm Giveaway. Each year I have marked the anniversary by similar giveaways since.

DCCG13-AWith the exception of the teacup and saucer, each item is handmade by me and I am delighted to offer it to one of you – as a thank you for sharing with and visiting A Delightsome Life.





I really do love the Lilla Rose Flexi-Clips – they make marvelous hair accessories – these are terrific ones for Mother’s Day gifts.  I have the gorgeous Cameo Flexi-Clip – love that blue and white!

Well, that’s it for me this week! I truly appreciate you visiting and sharing with Home and Garden Thursday.

Here are the HIGHLIGHTS from last week’s party:

ChristineChristine, at Christine’s Home and Travel shared with us a gorgeous, bird-inspired tablescape underneath her flower ladened gazebo. Simply exquisite in color and I am sure a heavenly experience.

our southern home scChristy at Our Southern Home created these lovely No-Sew Drop Cloth curtains – love the look, especially topped with the gorgeous blue and yellow toile fabric. You can see her tutorial here.

Debbie DabbleDebbie at Debbie Dabble shared with us this exquisite mantel vignette featuring Victorian figurines and artwork –

old things newPatti at Old Things New shared how she transformed this vintage ironing board and how she created this graphic transfer – beautifully done!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAKatie, from Lets Add Sprinkles created this gorgeous, rustic tray from bed slats – love how it turned out!

I am thrilled each week by your visits and participation – you are what makes Home and Garden Thursday special!
