Party #11 has started! Stick around and be inspired!

Hey there! Welcome to this week’s party! Last week we had some great link-ups, and I enjoyed visiting all of them.  We are so happy that you join us and link up your latest content. I look forward to what you’ll be sharing this week!

Julie is your host this week, so I’ll let her take it over now. 

Welcome to Homestyle Gathering

Hey friends and party-people! Julie comin’ at ya! Homestyle Gathering 11 is ready for all bloggers to link-up and readers to peruse all the lovely posts going on in Blogland this week!

Just a reminder… Homestyle Gathering opens every Tuesday at 6am PST (9am EST) and allows for new posts to be linked all the way through Saturday. So bloggers, be sure to come and link-up new content throughout the week, and readers, be sure to come and check out all the new posts for decor, diy, recipes, and more!

I’m catching up from being out of town and out with this funky illness I’ve had for 3.5 weeks. AND, I was able to visit each and every post this week (sorry, last week was hit-and-miss for this ‘sickie’). If you have linked up several posts, rest assured I have visited all of them, even if I don’t comment on all of them! ;-)

Just as a reminder, Homestyle Gathering is brought to you by Serving Up Southern and My Wee Abode (that’s me, of course!).

Another reminder, we ask a guest blogger to host the party with us every 4th week! You never know…it could be YOU! And, of course, we select five features from the posts that are linked each week.

Now, pour yourself your fave drinkie-poo, sit back, and enjoy all the home-keeping love that we have this go around!

Holly from Home with Holliday is a queen of tablescapes. Really… she’s amazing. And this week she shared how to do a single, green place setting… FOUR ways! I especially love this inspiration because it’s perfect for small home living and elevates single-dining.

I LOVE inexpensive vase fillers, especially ones that your can change out with the seasons. Have you ever wondered how they color rice? Well, Candice at She’s Crafty shows us how! Can you imagine this in orange/yellow/white for fall (candy corn!), or any combination of colors to match your seasonal decor!!! Game-changer!

Okay, so when my daughter and I saw this pic we were like, “Oh no!!! That’s going to melt in the yard! What are they thinking?!” And then we looked! Lisa from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S shares how we can create a chocolate bunny that can “handle the heat”!

  1. Hi Kim, Thanks so much for hosting this party. I just found your blog from My Wee Abode and have added you to my sidebar because, even though I live in Maine, I love everything Southern! In fact, we’re on a road trip in our camper through the South right now. We spent a beautiful 5 days in the Shenandoah Valley (I blogged photos) and are now in one of my all-time favorite places, the Charleston, SC area. I guess I’m just blogging my way through the South until the snow melts at home! A new Follower, Cheryl

    1. Thank you for the kind words, Cheryl! We’re not but about an hour and 15 minutes from the Shenandoah Vally. I’m not sure which parts you were in, but I know it’s beautiful all over. We have made many trips to South Carolina, but Charleston has yet to be one of them. I hope to change that soon. My husband has family there, so we’ve always had a particular destination when we head that way. Blogging your way through the south sounds lovely! Maine has been on my radar too! Maybe one of these days, we’ll manage to find the time. Enjoy your trip! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. I always love seeing what you’re featuring here at HG, Kim! I enjoy getting some southern hospitality tips from your site, too. Your recipes all look so wonderful. Thanks for hosting a great party!

    1. Hey Crissy!
      Thank you! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the hospitality series. Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you at this week’s HG party!
