The Hearth and Soul Hop Link Party 22 June

The Hearth and Soul Hop Link Party
Welcome to The Hearth and Soul Hop! We welcome posts about home & family, recipes, healthy living posts, gardening, crafts & DIY as well as encouraging & inspiring posts.

Before I go any further, it’s time to announce the winners of the Hearth and Soul Hop 5th Birthday Giveaways! The winner of my giveaway for a $50 Amazon gift certificate was Jean of Delightful Repast and the winner of Swathi of Zesty South Indian Kitchen‘s Amazon gift certificate giveaway was Joy of Yesterfood. Congratulations to both these lovely ladies and thank you so much to everyone who entered.

It’s a busy time here as we get ready for a family visit to Canada. I’m so excited to see my family and friends – and one of my lovely cousins is about to have her first baby! We are really hoping to be able to welcome this new member of the family in person.

A Visit to Cliveden House
Recently I shared a post about our visit to Cliveden House – a beautiful country house hotel in an extremely beautiful historic property. The staff encourage you to make yourself at home and we really did. From tea in Lady Astor’s study to being able to select any antique book I liked and settle down to read in the library to our gorgeous suite, it was totally amazing. I hope you will check out my post about the hotel that had me feeling like Cinderella!

Meatless Monday Recipes

If you need inspiration for Meatless Meals, I’ve collected some of our family favourites in this collection of Meatless Monday Recipes.

Today I’m featuring two posts from last week’s hop:-

Creamy Italian Shrimp & Pasta Salad at The Hearth and Soul Hop

A gorgeous, perfect for spring and summer Creamy Italian Shrimp and Pasta Salad from Miz Helen’s Country Cottage
