Home and Garden Thursday

Oh, so excited…no matter how many more days of wintry weather we have – it is inevitable – spring is coming! Today it’s chilly, but the days to come will continue to warm. I just hope that we stay warm for a while before we get hot! So many things shared with you last week!

Here’s what I shared with you since the last party:

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-BUNNY-NAPKINAs part of a review-giveaway for Hamilton Beach – their Durathon Iron, I made these Bunny Napkins. If you’d like to win one of these irons yourself – you have one more day until the drawing! 


I just love my Canon Rebel T3i! So when I became aware of the opportunity to join some fantastic Bloggers in a Giveaway – I had to jump on it for YOU!  Have you had a chance to enter – you have numerous opportunities! 

Irish Country Cooking Cookbook Irish Stew A Delightsome LIfeI love cookbooks – I collect them! I love being Irish and I love my Dad. I was given the opportunity to review a fantastic cookbook Irish Country Cooking: More than 100 Recipes for Today’s Table I took it! I made Irish Stew – shared Dad’s love for cooking…and more.

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-MANTEL-BEFORE-AFTERI’m joining several Bloggers in a weeklong Spring Fling LINKY party – Monday was Spring Mantels. I loved the look to my winter mantel and really didn’t want to change it…so I tweaked it with spring in mind…the color green was the theme.

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-CARROT-CAKE-LABEL-TEATuesday for the Spring Fling LINKY party was Spring Recipes – I made Carrot Cake. Dearest and I were on our own this weekend, I suggested I wanted to make something sweet. I asked him whether he wanted cake or cookies…he replied,’cookies are for babies!’ So I made one of his favorite cakes….

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-POTTED-FAUX-HYDRANGEA-first photoWednesday for the Spring Fling LINKY party is Spring Crafts. I loved the look to a Potted Faux (or preserved) Hydrangea that was offered by one of my favorite places to shop Decor Steals. I missed it…then thought – I could make one or two of my own. I shared with you how I did just that.

You have opportunity to join this fun weeklong LINKY still!
