"I cannot tell you how much I owe to the solemn word of my good mother."
~ Charles Spurgeon

"An ounce of mother is worth a pound of clergy."
~ Rudyard Kipling
There are so many wonderful features in the making of a home. This is a place where I would love for you to share your love for anything home-related. Homemakinghomeschooling and homesteading are all a part of the lovely art of home-making!

~~Please link up posts in the spirit of Titus 2 and Proverbs 31 (such as recipes, godly encouragement, DIY's, frugal living, child-raising, medicine making, preparedness, gardening, home decoration, school lessons, sewing, crafts, etc).~~ You are welcome to share as many posts as you like!

* Today we are featuring our favorite 5 posts from Last Week *

{I would love for you to choose a few of these hand-picked posts and leave some comment love!}

1. DIY Pedestal Stand by Adirondack Girl ~ I love do-it-yourself projects that can be done with odds-and-ends and this pedestal stand is the perfect example. There are so many possibilities one can create with this concept!

2. Strawberry Oat Bars by Grace and Garden Homestead ~ These oat bars look tasty and would be a great way to use up leftover jam (just substitute it for the filling)!

3. Explore Russia by MommyMaleta ~ Laura shares wonderful geography unit studies on her website and her newest homeschool "travels" take us to Russia for the month. Week 1 – map, flag, country facts, Week 2 – interview, Week 3 – craft and Week 4 – a Russian recipe. Geography can be such a fun subject to teach! 

4. Easy to Peel Fresh Eggs by The Country Blossom ~ If you have your own chickens, then you realize the frustration of peeling fresh eggs. Katy shares her tip which I am eager to try. She has such a warm and cozy blog, I think you will enjoy your visit.

5. How Do You Keep it All Together? by Radical Femininity ~ Oftentimes we want the easy way out but it is the practical advice that must be applied for true results. I think Annie shares just that!


 Ways to Enhance Your Link Up Experience to Make it Lovely:

~ Drink a cup of tea or coffee as you peruse the posts.

~ Visit an article with similar interests and leave a comment. She who likes visitors should also try to visit :)

~ Return a visit to someone who has left you a kind comment, the "Golden Rule" is always lovely when applied.

~ Show that you have similar interests by publicly "following" that person's blog. Many will choose to follow you back and that is how a                                                              sweet community is born.

And finally, thank you for joining us each week! It is a pleasure to have you :)

  1. Hey Jes, Happy Mother's Day for yesterday, hope you had a lovely time. Have a great week and thanks for hosting. Blessings

  2. Wow, I didn't realize that there was a peeling difference from fresh eggs and MY store-bought eggs! That is fascinating. Thank you for hosting today and loved the quotes - so perfect for Mother's Day.

  3. Good morning my bright friend !
    This time I've chosen a post of mine quite old, but I think suited to the spirit of your post and your Blog today, because it talks about the love of Effie Gray and John Everett Millais, which was a true love, able to make grow a true family and to make Millais become the wonderful painter he was.
    Thanking you so very much for your precious friendship and for hosting us every Monday with so much love, I wish you much Joy and Serenity for the new week just begun.
    Sending hugs and love across the ocean

  7. Thank you so much for featuring my post!!! How exciting! I always appreciate your link up here! Thanks JES!!! :D

  8. Good Monday morning, JES! I nearly spewed my coffee allover the keyboard for the need to laugh out loud when I read the quote by Rudyard Kipling just because I've experienced that very thing and know it to be true. Sometimes clergy truly aren't what we expect them to be, and Mr. Kipling nailed it so well, lol. And your linkup enhancing ideas are spot on - from the coffee to visiting sprinkled with comments. Have a wonderful week!
