Thoughts of Home on Thursday #8

We welcome you to Thoughts of Home on Thursday #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 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 category.

Here are the features for this week:


Cristina from Remodelando la Casa shares this functional and adorable welcoming doormat.


Who could resist this nutritious and pretty salad served on this stunning plate that Penny has shared with us from  The Comforts of Home.


Join Jeanie at The Marmelade Gypsy in Massachusetts, for a walk among the gardens and a glorious historical overview of the Mount.


Brooke from Creative Country Mom shares her love of neutrals, natural light, 
cream ware and burlap to create an inviting eat-in kitchen.

Judith at Botanic Bleu shares five useful tips on how to keep an Ivy Topiary healthy and pretty.

 ~Gentle Reminders~

We ask that you please:
1. Link back to this post and follow any of your hostesses at these four blogs.

2. Share up to three of your favorite posts, remembering to not link advertising or shops.
