Home Sweet Home

Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home #60!  I have been outside a lot this week and when I wasn't outside I was sewing.  I did manage to get my pansies potted in a vintage galvanized bucket.   It makes for a nice cheery arrangement to greet you as you walk in the front door.

I found Mr. Gnome at Walmart.  Isn't he fun.  It is a plant pick that is only 2-21/2 inches tall.  There were several different versions of them and they had just about sold out of them.  I thought he was cute!   

Now I would like to highlight some of the posts that caught my eye last week at Home Sweet Home.

 Emily at The French Hutch knows the best places to shop.  Go visit her and take a virtual visit to Boxwoods Home in Atlanta.

Need some Easter dessert ideas?  Martha of The Kitchen Cookie posted a Dark Chocolate and Key Lime Cheesecake that would be perfect!

 Housepitality Designs created a mantelscape around this lovely stained glass window her husband got her.

  Lorrie at Finding Secrect Treasures  created this beautiful stencil on an old window. 

Porch Sittin' Time for Scooby has an Easter tradition of creating these little bunnies with her family.  Aren't they cute!

What a great party last week!  So much creativity!! 
Thank you to all who join me at Home Sweet Home!   It is wonderful to have you here!
