Enjoying Summer at The Hearth and Soul Link Party

It’s time to relax and start really enjoying summer at the Hearth and Soul Link Party!

The Hearth and Soul Link Party where we welcome posts about anything that feeds your soul

This week’s features will provide lots of inspiration to help you get started.

At The Hearth and Soul Link Party, posts about anything that feeds your soul are welcome – from family, home, decorating, crafts and DIY to travel, organisation, book reviews, the arts and self improvement. And of course, food from the hearth to feed your soul is a real favourite here too!

This week I shared my twist on a traditional British treat – Bakewell Tart.
