Home and Family Ideas with The Hearth & Soul Link Party

Welcome to The Hearth and Soul Link Party! Home and family ideas feature this week, along with anything else that feeds your soul!

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

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!

How is your summer going? We are making the best of the last few weeks of summer, despite some rather disappointing weather.  I’m working on lots of new travel and recipe posts at the moment. Last week I shared a late summer treat that is a real favourite round here.

Blackberry Apple Cake recipe

My Blackberry Apple Cake is moist, flavourful and very easy to make and decorate!
