Happy Hanukkah to everyone who is celebrating! With Hanukkah and Advent both here, it’s a very welcome season of light in a year in which we have seen quite a lot of darkness. Welcome to the Hearth and Soul Link Party!
The Hearth and Soul Link Party welcomes blog posts about anything that feeds the soul. 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.
NB. Please only share blog posts. I’m sorry, but links to Facebook posts etc will be deleted.
What’s Been Happening
We are enjoying the start of the Christmas season with lots of virtual get togethers with friends. Thank goodness for FaceTime and Zoom! I’ve been working hard on blog posts for the New Year and Spring as well as getting started on the Christmas baking.
These Orange Gingerbread Crinkle Cookies are one of my most requested recipes. I also made one of my husband’s favourite Christmas recipes last week.
Full of Christmas flavours, my delicious, warmly spiced Brandy and Mincemeat Cake recipe is a lighter alternative to fruit cake that is perfect for any occasion. Even folks who aren’t fans of traditional fruit cake love this easy to make cake.
And, I’m excited to be sharing a travel post that is perfect for armchair travelling! How do you fancy celebrating Jane Austen’s 245th Birthday with fans from all over the world?
The Jane Austen House Museum is open for pre-booked visitors on specific days of the week, however they have an absolutely fabulous selection of events online. There’s even a 360° Tour of the house that is almost like being there. Find out more here! (If you are interested in the virtual tea party, please do visit the post I’ve linked to soon as it’s on Wednesday 16th December. Scroll to the bottom of the post I’ve linked to.)
Thank you all for sharing your wonderful content!

- Linking your blog posts here means you consent to me sharing as many of them as I can on Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook and featuring them on my blog with photographs from the post. It’s easier for me to share if you have share buttons on your blog, and if you put links to your social media on your home page.
