Thoughts Of Home #18

blog linky party hosted by Poofing the Pillows, Decor to Adore, White
Spray Paint, and At Home with Jemma.

Welcome friends to the eighteenth week of  Thoughts of Home on Thursday. 
We are so thrilled that you join us each week!
 You inspire us in more ways than you know with your beautiful decorating, delicious recipes, 
DIY projects and sweet ways.

Our hostess this week is Stacey of Poofing the Pillows who just finished summerizing her kitchen by cleaning top to bottom and changing a few accessories.

Now, let's see the wonderful features for this week.


Melanie of Comfy House shared snippets of her day and reminded us that we can all be grateful for where we are and what we have in life.

Kathy at Sharing Shadymont made over an old French Provincial nightstand at her lakehouse. 
She did a pretty two toned paint finish to update the piece.

Is an artist a DIYer? Well she absolutely is! 
Jenna at The Painted Apron set a beautiful pineapple themed table but she also studied and painted a beautiful pineapple. She's not afraid to try her hand at any art project and often shares tutorials.



Brenda at Cozy Little House shared her beautiful patio garden where plants are
 flourishing and birds love to hang out near her water feature.

At One Thousand Oaks, Jaclyn shared a delicious looking Plank Grilled Salmon that 
could be on regular rotation all summer.

Yes, we had so much fun, shared so much inspiration and learned so much that we are 

going to get together again in February!

We just can't wait another year-invitations are open to one all no matter where you live!

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.
