Guess who is hosting Homestyle Gathering this week?!  ME!!!  Super excited to be sharing with you all kinds of wonderful homekeeping ideas, decor inspiration, recipes, and more at Homestyle Gathering 3 Your Homekeeping Destination!

Busy week here in sunny So Cal (after 4 days of heavy rains)! I’m so glad so many of you have been following along here at My Wee Abode!  I have a couple of projects in the works this week, along with more big inspiraton for small home living. My hope is always to help you enjoy your home more and make it a haven of peace, rest, and comfort for you, your family, and friends! Without you, there wouldn’t be a My Wee Abode, and y’all are a HUGE blessing!

Now, let’s party!


Here we are… Homestyle Gathering #3…. brought to you by Serving Up Southern, Harbour Breeze Home, and yours truly. Bringing together all the best from home decor and homekeeping bloggers from all over “BlogLand”. Bloggers, you are invited to link up on Tuesdays, and readers, we want you to enjoy all the home styling and homekeeping goodness that is shared! Something else exciting about our party – We will be asking a guest blogger to host the party with us every 4th week! So be on the look-out, it could be you! Each week, we select five features from the posts that are linked from the prior week.

So, grab a cuppa your fave drink, make yourself comfy-cozy, and enjoy the beauty that is home.

This year, My Wee Abode’s décor for Valentine’s Day is minimal and a bit rustic.  This garland from Mary at The Boondocks Blog was actually created by experimenting with different finishes, but the media she used and the rustic result is inspirational.

Bluesky at Home is sharing some lovely and cozy ideas for winter bedroom décor.  Carol made those plush pom-pom pillows, and I just think they are lovely! (*whispers* She even has a tutorial for how to make them in another post. 😉 )
