Homestyle Gathering is your weekly homekeeping destination! A place where you can share inspiration, find inspiration and make new friends.


You know the saying, “all good things must come to an end.” It’s true, and it’s okay because when things end, it leaves time and room for new things to come.

For this reason, I will no longer be doing Homestyle Gathering. I have new and exciting things planned for Serving Up Southern in 2020 that will require plenty of time and attention.

It has been a bittersweet decision to make, and I’ve been putting it off for a while now. But, I know the time has come, and it’s the right step to take.

I want to thank each one of you for your support and for the time you took to come over each week – your dedication helped make HG a success. You made it so much fun, and I thoroughly enjoyed hosting. There’s no doubt I’ll miss it, but I’m very excited and looking forward to the new things to come.

I hope you enjoy these last features on Homestyle Gathering. To all of my blogging friends, I have enjoyed getting to know each of you better. I’ll continue to visit your blogs, and I hope you’ll continue to check back here now and then too. :)

If you missed last week’s party, you can find all the fabulous inspiration that was shared here.

Also, be sure to check out my Homestyle Gathering Link Party board – you’ll find each week’s features pinned to this board.

Let’s get the party rolling!

  2. Kim, I’m very sorry to hear that this link party is going away. So many have disappeared in the last year. But it must take a large amount of time to maintain, and would keep you from other important opportunities for your growth!

    Big Hug,

    1. Thank you, Rachelle!
      I hated to bring it to an end. I even tell myself that maybe one day I’ll bring it back. But, for now, I know it’s the right thing to do for moving forward. Thanks so much for being a faithful participant.
