The Hearth and Soul Hop August 25

The Hearth and Soul Blog Hop
Welcome to The Hearth and Soul Hop, the blog hop for family and comfort food recipes, healthy, sustainable living posts, gardening, family, kids, crafts and DIY. Encouraging and inspiring posts are welcome too.

It’s been a seriously busy time here and I’ve been remembering our recent Bermuda holiday very fondly! I do love the new start September brings and I am looking forward to the fall.

Today I’m featuring three posts from last week’s hop.

The Hearth and Soul Blog Hop

Annamaria from Bakewell Junction made these pretty Vanilla Sugar Cookie Hearts to celebrate her Mom’s 80th birthday.

LuAnn from Lovely Livings shared these A Fantastic Flower Box and some wonderful photographs from her niece’s wedding reception.
