sweet home recipe swap

Every house where love abides
And friendship is a guest,
Is surely home, and home sweet home
For there the heart can rest.

Catered Crop Recipe Swap Button
My daughter just bought a 60-year old fixer-upper. Helping her remodel it has left me feeling like I’m on a DIY home-improvement reality program. I’ve learned how to use a circular and chop saw, planted shrubs, laid down wood floor and baseboards, and goodness gracious I hope I never see another paint brush. I’m remembering my Dad and all his home remodeling projects and thinking about how proud he would be of us. The house is becoming a beautiful canvas for my daughter to express who she is and it’s left me waxing poetic about what makes a house a home.

Our challenge for the next couple of weeks is about house and home. Include a house of any kind (dog house, bird, house, trailer). This is a great opportunity to create a card “from our house to yours,” welcome someone into their new home, announce your move, or thank a host. OR – in honor of our remodeling project – create a project about the things you do to make your house a home – like gardening and home improvements.

  • Include a link to us at Catered Crop or add our button, which you can grab on our sidebar or at our {button gallery}.
  • Link up and link often, but be sure you link up by 8:00 PM EST on Saturday, May 24.
  • Keep the party hopping by visiting the other players and leaving comments.
  • Check back with us on May 25 to see if you’ve won an opportunity to be a guest designer.


Our fabulous designers will be back on Sunday, May 18, with their creations. Until then I’ve curated a ton of projects (many from our Catered Crop designers) here at a Pinterest board, Home Sweet Home, where you can find the links to all these projects and more.
