Home Sweet Home #163

Lemon Cake Tea: The Charm of Home
Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home!  This week I had a Lemon Cake Tea.

Lemon Pound Cake: The Charm of Home
I made a lemon cake that my family really liked in Ina's Lemon Pound Cake.

Spring Collage: The Charm of Home
I made a Spring Collage out of some of my photographs and posted it with a Dickens quote.

Fairy Cakes with Pixie Dust: The Charm of Home
We also had a tea party and celebrated with these cupcakes.

There are so many great creative ideas, recipes, and beautiful homes at The Home Sweet Home party each week. Here are some of the great blogger's post that caught my eye from last week's Home Sweet Home.

Spring Mantel
Diane, at Extraordinary Day created this Simple, Dramatic White Mantel for Spring.  I loved the simplicity and composition of this.

Union Jack Painted Dresser
Suzan, at Simply Vintageous gave makeovers to several pieces of furniture and this was my favorite in: A Day in the Life of....a furniture painter.

Cooking with Edible Flowers
Mary, at Home is Where the Boat Is is always cooking up something stunning, but she really outdid hereself in this post where she cooked with edible flowers: in Swing into Spring: A Roundup of Spring Recipes & Inspiration.

Vintage Strawberry Crate Styling
Patti, at Old Things New created this little bit of Happiness in a Vintage Strawberry Crate.

Craft: French Script Bottle
Nancy, at A Joyful Cottage covered a wine with French script in My $2 Rustic Stool and French Script Bottle.

Hi Sherry,
I am glad it's Friday! We had been bracing ourselves all week for a spring blizzard and it arrived on Wednesday. Shut the Island down for two days. School's been closed for three days and I'm sure the children are happy! Almost two feet of snow and hurricane force winds were hard to handle this time of year but at least we didn't lose our power. I just want to think about the nice weather ahead. Your post helps with all the lovely features and your own. Have a wonderful weekend, my friend, and thanks for hosting.

Hi Sherry! Oh, that lemon cake looks so good. I make one that is a copy cat of the lemon loaf from Starbucks and it's so good. My mouth is watering. Thank you so much for hosting and I'm so glad I can play this week.
