Thoughts Of Home On Thursday #8

We welcome you to Thoughts of Home On Thursday number 8. 

This is where we share with one another those very special things that are near and dear to 

our hearts.

Perhaps a special recipe, or maybe some decorating tips.

However, we also share even more than that.

We share friendships with one another that span from one coastline to another and in 

between too.

Our hostess today is Jemma from At Home With Jemma and she has a little giveaway 

just for you, a year's subscription to Southern Lady.

Each of your entries in this week's party is an opportunity to win.

We have quickly come to realize that we have some very talented DIY participants!

In order to recognize those of you who have this gift of creativity we have added a DIY

Jemma's home is a quiet spot nestled among the trees. You might find me writing, reading, or puttering in my Greenhouse, tweaking a recipe, crafting a wreath or loving on my grands. Always living with a grateful heart.

  9. Good morning dearest heart! Well, this is lovely. I will try to make it to other blogs; I love Jeanie and I was there earlier this morning. I am here at home on spring break, but I had to tear away from the fun a bit this morning to WORK and grade papers! I am free now and will spend the rest of the day enjoying the freedom of home.

    Have you thought more about our adventure? What do you think?

  10. Thank you for the party Jemma. So many lovely blogs to explore here. Sheila

  11. Jemma, Thanks so much for the feature and for hosting us each week! It's always fun to come visit and get inspired and hey, the giveaway is the cherry on top! Thanks!

  12. Hi Jemma, great features as always! I don't have a post to link up this week but will certainly enjoy visiting the others. Have a great weekend!

  13. Thank you Jemma and Friends for Thoughts of Home.

  14. HI Jemma,
    I am catching up here, I went back 4 postings of yours and made my rounds always inspired with what bloggers have to share.
    As for you last post with the Easter Icebox lemon pie I am so going to make this. We, my daughter and I are big fans of anything lemon, or like your husband Coconut :)
    As for the pie I was surprised that it did not call for sugar in the recipe! So a bit less guilt when we polish off this pie in one sitting :)
    I am going to pretend the calories are non existent here :)

    Enjoyed my visit so now I am off to create. Work on my etsy, and check on a jobsite.
    See you soon and all the wonderment you inspire here.

    Blessed days ahead of you!

  20. Jemma,
    Thank you for featuring the Ivy Topiaries in Bunny Pots. It was such a wonderful welcome home surprise. Here I am, just browsing along some of my favorite blog spots getting caught up on what I missed while gone...THEN I caught sight of one of my photos as one of your features. Does everyone still get that, "I can't believe it thrill," when featured? Thank you, Laura @ DTA, Stacey, and Laura @ WSP for creating a little spot of wonderfulness for us all to come to visit each week. You know hosting a linking party is a GREAT thing.
