Home and Garden Thursday



Home and Garden Thursday

I hope you all had a blessed Mother’s Day. Mine couldn’t have been more perfect, more memorable. My day started with my youngest daughter making breakfast served in my room; a marvelous day worshipping at church; Dearest grilled, the girls cooked sides and we all sat outdoors afterwards enjoying a most beautiful day. I count my blessings every day and top on that list is my sweet family.

Mother's Day 1On Sunday, I shared a few thoughts on the Gifts of the Mother.

Downton Abbey Rosewater Jelly 3Continuing in my discussion about my new found like – Downton Abbey – I prepared a tea fit for the Lady of the Manor.

As we came up to the party - a screen door was set with wagon, shelf and wheel barrow to place the plants for exchange.

I want to thank you all so much, for not only joining Home and Garden Thursday, but also staying and visiting. You do so much to share that it is marvelous to see all the ladies enjoying each other’s posts!

Here are the Highlights from last week’s party:

Penny's Vintage HomeJaw-droppingly gorgeous and amazing. Penny at Penny’s Vintage Home shares what she did with a bag FULL of battenburg lace – all for $10!

More Fun Less LaundryIn Pink Heaven. Linda at More Fun Less Laundry shared her amazing tree in peak bloom – just outside her home by a deck. A gorgeous view – to compliment this tree she set a beautiful tablescape on the deck – love the bee silverware and the dishes!

Our Southern HomeChristy at Our Southern Home shared her amazing French Country Kitchen – you all loved it! The Range, hood, mural, the island, the colors, the furniture and Bessie are all marvelous! Simply inspiring!

Number 53Angela at Number 53 did her furniture painting magic with this vintage piece from her mother – love the navy blue, additional colors, texture and overall look – beautifully done.

Helen's LegacyDoesn’t this look delicious! Lisa at Helene’s Legacy shared the recipe for these Strawberry Hearts With Macadamia Cream and Mint. I believe I will be giving these a try! 

Rosemary and ThymeLilacs! One of my favorite fragrant flowers – beautifully displayed by Janet at Rosemary and Thyme.
