Thoughts Of Home On Thursday #1

Welcome to the delightful beginning of Thoughts of Home On Thursday.

We are so happy that you have joined this gathering.


Our intent is to be a nurturing place of creativity and inspiration. 


Each week we hope that you will share your decorating ideas, recipes, thoughts on 


gardening, or simply what inspires you. 


                              Each link up will be shared on all four of our blogs.
                                 



To celebrate we are hosting a giveaway each week for a month.
Anyone who links up will be eligible to win.
Linking up more than one post means you are eligible for multiple entries.

This week the giveaway is being hosted by Laura of Decor to Adore.


This giveaway includes a one of kind flea market apron, mug, loose leaf tea strainer, decorative accent piece, and a $20.00 dollar gift card to HomeGoods/ TJMaxx/Marshalls

tucked into a darling coin purse.




                   This week's selections that truly capture the essence of home:

*Please note that as this is our inaugural post we have selected a post from each of our four blogs. In the future weekly we will highlight four guests who link up the previous week.



                                                                      Decorating:

                                                                      Recipes:

                                                                      Gardening:


                         White spray paint offers fantastic ideas in Raised Gardening Tips.



                                                                          Inspiration:


                      Poofing the Pillows provides inspiration in "A Fresh Look at Our Family Room".



                                                                 Gentle Suggestions:
