Thoughts of Home on Thursday #1

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. Your link will be featured on all four of our blogs.

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 Laura of Decor 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.

*Since 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

Decor to Adore – Raspberry Orange Trifle.

Hi Stacey, linked to the party. Not sure I played along correctly. What does link to three posts mean? I added links in my post to other posts from my site and then linked to the party as well? I hope I did it right. Would love to be entered in the drawing. Thanks, Lori

Super idea for a link party. Please allow me to recover a big more from the flu and I promise I’ll participate. I don’t have any thing new posted recently other than book posts.

Wow, check out your participation! This is awesome.
