Thoughts of Home on Thursday

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 featured 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 more than one post means you are eligible for multiple entries.

This week the giveaway is being hosted by Laura of Décor To Adore.


The giveaway includes a one of a kind flea market apron, mug, loose leaf tea, strainer, decorative accent piece, and a $20 gift card to HomeGoods/TJMaxx/Marshalls tucked into a darling coin purse.

This week’s selections that truly captured 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 selections will highlight four guests who link up the previous week.


At Home with Jemma shares How to Decorate With Faux Flowers & Wreaths.


An easy and delicious dessert recipe perfect for Valentine’s day from Décor To Adore ~ Raspberry Orange Trifle.



White Spray Paint offers fantastic ideas in Raised Bed Gardening Tips.



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

Gentle Suggestions:

1. A link back to this post or any of the four hosts websites would be greatly appreciated as it will help new friends to find us.

What a lovely party, Laura! Issues with my computer and blogger kept me at bay at the end of the year and January. It's been slow going, but I am nearly back in the groove one again. This amazing gathering is just the ticket for inspiration and motivation! Hope all is well with you and your lovely family!

The linking party has started with great success! Looking forward to joining again in the future on Thursdays. Remember not to give up on me... 6:00 a.m. is just too early for me to rise and shine now that I'm retired, but I will show up later in the day or evening. Do you know of any way to schedule linking to link parties similar to how we schedule a time and date for new posts to go live?

My goodness! So many beautiful blogs. Enough here to keep me busy until next week! :)
