Let's Embrace the Winter! (Finding Ways to Enjoy Being Inside) TFT Party

Hi Friends, welcome back! Yes, it's winter and we are in the middle of a great big rainstorm here, but that doesn't mean we can't embrace the Season and enjoy what we can do inside! I love how you all are enjoying those things that can make your space "home" and comfy! I love doing the same in my little corner of the world, and let me tell you it includes a lot of wonderful blanket throws and fuzzy socks and slippers galore! As well as some yummy baking days and lazy mornings with my macchiato. Ahem, and now onto how you all have been enjoying your winter...
Pam at Everyday Living's A Breakfast Tray – Monday Morning Blooms is truly SO inviting! Tea, flowers, muffins and the new Victoria magazine! How can you go wrong here?! Nicely done Pam! Loving her beautiful blue pillow shams.

Baby, It's Cold Outside...Let's Warm Up This Winter! (TFT Party!)

Well, friends, I think there's little doubt to anyone that we are in the midst of the winter season!! Chills, frost, wind, rain, and for some, a lot of snow. But, I say let's embrace the season and all its glory and everything we can find to make our homes comfortable and cozy, from decor and style to the very best comfort-food recipes!  So, without further ado, I bring you this week's Features to help you achieve just that!
Michele from Hello Lovely's All is Calm…All is Bright is just that! Beautiful, peaceful, calm and beautifully white. Easily, the most welcoming space I've seen this year! :)

Savory Roasted Pumpkin Soup

It is that wonderful time of year in which pumpkins are everywhere.  I am in love with Autumn/Fall! (this is no secret to my regular readers)  Although, I do not participate in all things Halloween, I do so enjoy the Harvest time.  So many wonderful and different varieties of vegetables are available (as long as you are not intimidated by them).  
After I became "differently-abled" I volunteered at our local food pantry and soup kitchen for about 6 or 7 years, everytime the loads would come in from the stores and local farms, with a variety of beautiful squash, most everyone looked at me and said, "Theresa, we have more 'gourds' for you." They thought them only good for rustic, harvest-themed table decoration and never did add them to our food give away.  Very seriously, the public's loss was my gain.  At one point. I even offered to print up recipes to go with the ingredient, but I was overruled as it being "too difficult" of a fruit/vegetable for most people to work with. So, now, finally, I have the voice, and platform, here to tell the Public, that the opposite is true! They are very easy to work with!
