A Return to Loveliness

I hope this finds you safe and warm. It is incredible the bone-chilling cold many of us are experiencing. A good cup of tea would be most soothing right now! I am always delighted by your participation – by you who return week after week and by our new friends. I hope you have opportunity to visit as many as you can.

Here are the Top Three Posts from last week’s party:

shabby thrift finds and bedding 011You’ll find some really beautiful Thrifty finds at Fairy Cottage and Garden. I love the linens and dishes she found!

southern hospitalityJocelyn at Just a Little Southern Hospitality shared a beautiful review of the teas she shared over the last year.

poppyPoppy at Poppy View shared a beautiful, poetic welcome to the new year. 

Thank you all for sharing your lovely posts with A Return to Loveliness!

    Yes, a cup of tea, a hot bubble bath, a cozy fire…all probably a necessity, (and for some, more of a luxury), in this ice storm that won’t quit, sweeping the northern US and southern and eastern Canada!

  15. Thank you for the feature Kathy. Can you believe the temps ?!? South Florida is not too bad with the 50’s but northern Florida in the 20’s ?? crazy…..you’re in Georgia right? must be chilly there every winter though I’m thinking I much prefer that to hot/humid all year which is getting to me now. Have a Delightful week.
