Another week and another challenge, I love making a wreath to enter a new season in. Its almost a celebration of sorts! Again I sat back thinking I'm so grateful for #romancingthehome as ordinarily, I would have let the change of a season pass without taking the time to be thankful for the beautiful Summertime, we have just had and to welcome in a

A Festive Tablescape, No.15 in our series #romancingthehome   This week we decided on a Christmas tablescape, ever since I was a little girl I would love setting the table with my mom. I would run out into the garden cut some of my dad's precious roses (much to his dislike) and put them in a vase for the table.
