Great Ideas from The Hearth and Soul Hop Link Party

The Hearth and Soul Hop Link Party
It’s time once again for the Hearth and Soul Hop Link Party! This week I’ll be featuring some great ideas from last week’s hop.

The party is open from now through Saturday and we welcome all family friendly posts whether they be about home, family, travel, self improvement, crafts or DIY. And of course we love recipes for food from the hearth to feed your soul! Remember both old and new posts are welcome, and you can share up to three posts every week.

Please can you help me achieve my goal of 100 posts shared with the hop every week by September?  I really appreciate all of last weeks tweets and shares!

There was lots happening on the blog last week! Anyone out there planning a visit to London – or do you fancy a bit of armchair travelling?
