We are celebrating a milestone this week! June marks the 10th Anniversary of the Hearth and Soul Link Party. Welcome, and a huge thank you to everyone for all your support and for sharing your wonderful content. Hearth and Soul is definitely one of the longest running link parties on the web, and I’m so grateful for the amazing community we have created together.
Whether your blog posts are old or new, as long as they are about things that feed the soul, they are welcome here at The Hearth and Soul Link Party. Things that feed the soul may include (but are not limited to) recipes, decorating, crafts, family, home, DIY, organization, travel, book reviews, the arts and self improvement.
Celebrating a milestone always gives me pause for thought, and I’m working on some ideas to help make Hearth and Soul even better. Watch this space!
On the Blog
Have you ever tasted gooseberries? We are all starting to look forward to summer here in the UK, and gooseberries will soon be in season.
Gooseberries are often made into jams or fruit crumbles and crisps, but I love this classic Gooseberry Fool. It’s one of my favourite early summer recipes. I love using vintage teacups to serve it in. It makes a delicious dessert even more special, and it’s a great conversation starter.
Thank you so much for all your support of Hearth and Soul, and for visiting and sharing. Please remember to visit each other’s posts as well. One of the best things about Hearth and Soul is the opportunity it presents to network virtually with other bloggers. You never know who might be open to collaboration, or if you might be able to help one another.
