Home Sweet Home #82

Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home!  I am always trying to find the best way to reach an audience and it occurred to me that most of you probably only stop by my blog each week for this party.  So, I am going to start doing a review of what I have been doing all week.   First up, is this book page oak leaf wreath I made for fall.

Always creating vignettes for the camera, I created this back-to-school scene.

If you have recipes on your blog, please don't miss this post where I show you how to create a virtual recipe box right on your blog.

And adding to my Recession-Era Recipe file, I made some Manicotti to feed a crowd on a budget.

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

Silvina at Tazas & Cuentos really had an amazing vintage kitchen remodel.   She lives in Argentina and a lot of the building materials (like subway tile) weren't available there so she had them cut to size.  There is so much detail in this remodel made to specifically show off her vintage collections.  It was just fantastic!

Penny at Penny's Vintage Home showed off her lovely potting shed made of collected doors and windows.

Judy at Gold Country Cottage showed off her beautiful kitchen.  I could move right in here!

Anne of Fiona and Twig  showed off her newly styled farmhouse mantel.

Jody and Stan at Rooted in Thyme  showed off their Gnome cookies.  I have so wanted to make these!  I really have to find one of these cookie cutters!

There are many great links each week!  Thank you to all who join me at Home Sweet Home!


I will join these ladies today:
Vintage Inspiration Friday at Common Ground 
Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage
Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home
Home and Garden Thursday  at A Delightsome Life 
Creative Things Thursday  at The Vintage Farmhouse
G'Day Saturday  at Natasha in Oz
