Hearth and Soul Hop – Labour Day Edition

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 Zero Waste Week here in the UK. No matter where you are based, I’m encouraging everyone to decide on One More Thing they can do to help reduce waste in their home this week and in the future.

Thank you so much to everyone who visited and shared posts last week. This week I’m featuring two posts.

This upcycled Drab to Fab Dresser from Linda at With a Blast is the perfect project for Zero Waste Week

and these Spicy Skillet Peaches from Miz Helen’s Country Cottage are a perfect way to enjoy delicious in season peaches.

  1. Hi April,
    Thank you so much for featuring my Spicy Skillet Peaches, what a lovely surprise, I really appreciate the honor. I like the idea of your country spotlighting a No Waste Week, what a great idea and cause. Hope you and your family enjoyed your Labour Day and thanks so much for the party!

    • Hi Miz Helen,
      Thank you so much for your support of Hearth and Soul! I wish we had Labour Day in the UK. I always used to enjoy it when I lived in Canada. We have a long weekend the weekend before Labour Day called “August Bank Holiday” instead 🙂 Have a lovely week!

  2. Thanks for hosting! I’m sharing my super simple coconut sugar simple syrup — a great vegan low glycemic alternative to honey and agave syrup. I’m also sharing what I carry to accommodate my food allergies when I go out.

  3. Thank you for the feature and the party, April !

  4. Hi ladies!! Thanks so much for hosting! I love the features! Have a great week! 🙂

  5. Thanks for the party. A lot of great links to see. Have a great week.

  6. Thanks for hosting, April! Zero Waste Week sounds great! A few years ago, I found a Zero Waste home site that inspired me to make changes like using more electronic tools for my planning.

  7. We could use “Zero Waste Week” in the US. You wouldn’t believe how many people don’t even recycle here. They have started to refused to pick up garage that isn’t separated in some places… but we should do so much more. Thanks for the party dear lady.

  8. Thank you for the party, April. I brought beer!

  9. G’day and thanks April for hosting such a great party!
    Sharing the love for you today!
    Cheers! Joanne

  10. Thanks for hosting April – hope you are well & your September is off to a fabulous start!
