I'm Having a Party!



Hello, Dear Ones! It's a wonderful time of the year, isn't it? We're all spiffing up our homes for fall, hopefully the weather will be cooling down and we feel like popping into the kitchen to prepare something good to eat.

My tiny little kitchen has just been spiffed up a bit (if you want to read about it you can go HERE) and I got to thinking...I'd like to host a party celebrating

The Heart of the Home ~
the kitchen



What do you think?
Would you come?


I've seen your kitchens and love every one of them!
Some are huge, some are small, like mine.
Some are grand and some not so grand.


But our kitchens are The Heart Of Our Homes aren't they?
The heart of the home is in our kitchens.


We just don't cook in our kitchens, but we eat in them,
entertain in them and gather for conversations.


We play in our kitchens, well, I do and I know lots of you do too!


We wash dishes and keep our counters sparkly clean in our kitchens.


We even show each other what we've cooked for dinner and share our recipes.


Some of us have young children at home
and the kitchen is where they play games, do homework and crafts.
Most of our pets have their tiny meals in the kitchen.


Our kitchens have become the focal point, if you will, of our homes ~
The Heart of the Home ~
our kitchens.


All of our kitchens are so unique.
There's such a variety of styles, sizes and wonderful features that make each kitchen YOURS!
We all have things we would like to change in our kitchens
and there's probably no perfect kitchen out there.



So I thought we could celebrate our kitchens with all of their imperfections
and have a party!


I'm going to have a
Heart of the Home Party

Wednesday, October 13th

It's almost a month away so you'll have time to wash the dishes,
feed the cats and dogs,
take the trash out
and sweep and mop the floor!

As far as I know,
I don't recall there ever being a kitchen party in Blogland so this should be fun.
If you plan on coming to my party, and I so hope you will,
take the little party button above that I made with my most dainty little tiny fingers
and place it on your sidebar and advertise for me.
Invite all of your blogging friends to come.

Now we need photos for the party.
You can take any kind of picture you want of your kitchen ~
you can take pictures and show us a tour of your kitchen,
you can take pictures of a special feature in your kitchen,
you can show us a tablescape that you dearly love,
you can share a favorite recipe with us,
let your little Heart of the Home run wild.

I'll have Mr. Linky up on Tuesday night because I know many of you love to come early to parties and here's what you need to do:

1. Publish your Heart of the Home post.

2. Once it is published, click on your post name, then just copy and paste the address that shows up in the address bar at the top, into the "url" box for the image linky. You'll also need to put your e-mail address in, but it's safe, no one will see it but you.

3. Type your name in the appropriate Mr. Linky box in the post.

4. Click on "Enter." You can also select the photo you want to be your "Look at My Kitchen!" square here.

5. Then just please link back to the Note Songs post so that others can come and see your wonderful kitchen.


So you've got almost a month and I'll continue to remind you of the party. Please plan on coming and it should be so much fun. I'll have coffee and tea and something good to eat
and will try to be the best hostess ever.

Until then...
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Shake, Rattle and Roll

Get out from that kitchen and rattle those pots and pans
Get out from that kitchen and rattle those pots and pans
Well, roll my breakfast 'cause I'm a hungry man

I said Shake, rattle and roll
I said Shake, rattle and roll
I said Shake, rattle and roll
I said Shake, rattle and roll
Well, you never do nothin' to save your doggone soul
Wearin' those dresses, your hair done up so nice
Wearin' those dresses, your hair done up so nice
You look so warm, but your heart is cold as ice

I'm like a one-eyed cat, peepin' in a sea-food store
I'm like a one-eyed cat, peepin' in a sea-food store
I can look at you, tell you don't love me no more
I believe you're doin' me wrong and now I know
I believe you're doin' me wrong and now I know
The more I work, the faster my money goes

SHAKE, RATTLE AND ROLL
