Thoughts of Home Thursday #2

Welcome back for week #2 of Thoughts of Home on Thursday.  When you begin something new, you never know how it will turn out. We had very high hopes for our new gathering last week but you all blew us away! You honored us with your presence and you shared such sweet supportive comments. We intended for this to be a nurturing and creative place and you made it just that.  

To celebrate we are hosting a giveaway each week for a month.
Anyone who links 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 Stacey of Poofing the Pillows. The giveaway includes a subscription to Cottage Journal along with other sweet home items.

It's not quite gardening season outdoors but Jane at Cottage at the Crossroads brought blooming pink primroses indoors and put them inside a cloche. This made for a stunning combination. 

Infuse with Liz decorated the plate rack in her eating area for Valentine's Day and the result is just adorable. It's a little bit old fashioned and a little bit modern with the lights. 

At Simply LKJ, Lauren prepared and shared a recipe for Lemon Tagliatelle with Toasted Pine Nuts and Arugula. This dish of fresh flavors blended with pasta looks delicious! 

In A Sweet Pairing, Terri at Our Good Life inspired us to think of simple things we can do at home to make it cozy and special. She and her husband love to share a little popcorn with wine at night. 

Gentle Suggestions:
