Home and Away


Happy weekend, friends! Glad you could come by for a visit and share some things this Friday that I'm sharing with Amy's link up Five on Friday.  Just click on the link below to join in!




One of the five I'm treasuring this week is the blessing of home even after the wonderful time we had there's no place like home and the bliss of one's own sweet bed and pillows.  Mind you, we stayed in some beautiful places and hotels!


But the fun of our holiday is always close at hand as I bought this great size prim utensil jar for my kitchen.  It is in just the right tones to match the tiling behind, and well, if you know me, you know I love stars!


Speaking of which, here's another metal one I got as a pair for my newly decorated living room.  More of that to come in a later post!


when we're away, one of my indulgences is Amish fiction and here's what I'm reading now by Kelly Long, called Threads of Grace.


When we arrived home I was so excited to find a parcel waiting for me! I was blessed recently to meet a new blogging friend and win her first giveaway over on her lovely blog, Faithscraftsbox.bogspot.co.uk.  Just click here to visit her and follow.

The parcel was chock full of goodies which i will treasure and enjoy!
Some cute wee buttons, a lavender scented sachet, knitting needles, packets of flower and herbs seeds, wool yarn and two really great crochet patterns and a beautifully hand adorned scarf! Truly spoilt so thanks so much Faith!

Thanks again for coming over! I really enjoy hearing from you!

Enjoy your weekend!
