Home Matters Linky Party 400th Giveaway Edition – Special Fall Pumpkins

Welcome to the weekly
Home Matters Linky Party #400!!!!

A great place to come, share your blog
posts, and make new friends. 

We are so glad you are here with us each

We have made it to a milestone number of link
party posts! 

The 400th party is here and we are making some
tweaks to the party format and to how we do things. 

Don’t worry, you will still enjoy linking up to our
party every week.  

Even better is that
there will be a fun giveaway chance with this post!

Starting with this party, there will be a monthly and weekly theme to the party.  The
theme is not only for us, the hosts, to share our thoughts and our projects that may showcase the theme, but it opens
up conversations with you, our fabulous readers, to share what that theme may mean to your home décor style, craft
project or favorite family recipe. 

Each week as we visit your posts any posts that share something within the weekly theme
may get an extra feature.  However, that does not mean you only get chosen for a feature if you contribute to the theme
for the week.  Any and all posts have an option to be selected for a feature by any of the hosts.  The themes just make
for a fun way for all of us to get to know each other better. Resharing of formerly shared posts is totally okay.

The Theme for the Month of October: Pumpkins
and Breast Cancer Awareness. 

This week’s theme: Pumpkin Recipes.

Next week’s theme:  Pumpkin Crafts and

I am not a food blogger so you will not find any pumpkin recipes on my site of
course.  However, one of my favorite pumpkin recipes is for a cookie that is so simple to make and I don’t even know the
name for it.  It includes a box of spice cake mix and just a can of pumpkin pie mix.  Anyone know what that cookie recipe
is called? If you do then share it this week so everyone can enjoy it!

Even more changes are coming for the Home Matters Linky Party. 

Also starting with this the 400th party, the Home Matters Linky Party Features Pinterest
Board has been brought back.  Each week the featured blogger’s posts from all three host sites will be pinned and
shared on this board.

Each week the featured posts will be combined in a collage image and shared on
Instagram and Facebook, with a link to the party and each blogger will be tagged.

The 400th Party

One lucky blogger who links up this week will win a $25 Amazon gift card.  The
winner will be selected at random from all of the bloggers who share a link this week.  Sharing multiple links does not
increase your chance of winning.  All you have to do is link up at least one blog post, and your name will be entered to
win the drawing.  

Now on to this week’s party!  Can’t wait to see you

Coffee Blog Tour And Giveaway!!



Hello Fall and Hello to Coffee! Beautiful season to enjoy a cup of coffee! My dear blogger friend, Liberty with her wonderful blog B4 And Afters has invited me to join her Coffee Blog Tour with amazing giveaway for you to win!

Today I am excited to share with you a very special Coffee Blog Tour. Eight bloggers joined together to share with you all of our best Coffee Themed Posts. I hope that you will find a ton of Inspiration about all things Coffee– crafts, printables, DIY projects, recipes, decorating ideas, and of course– COFFEE! If you or someone you know Loves Coffee, then this is a Dream Come True! #coffeeblogtour

Coffee Blog Tour

It all started when one of us noticed these cute Coffee themed items at the Dollar Tree.

(For more information about the Giveaway, see the rest of this post. *This post is not sponsored by the Dollar Tree– they just happen to be the store that carries these items.)

Burner Covers


Did you know that for $1 you can get TWO burner covers at the Dollar Tree? They come in a set with one large and one small cover.  (If you don’t have an electric stove, Click Here to see a totally different way to use these covers.)   Once you notice the covers, then you might notice other coordinating items, like dishcloths, and potholders.


There are even oven mitts.


Here is a glass trivet or cutting board.  You may need to travel to different Dollar Trees in your area to find all of these coordinating pieces.


Here is a matching dish towel.


The other side of the Coffee oven mitt is a bright solid color.


There are other themes to choose from at the Dollar Tree store, also, like “Our Nest is Best” or “Wake up and Smell the Coffee.”


“A Hot Fresh Coffee is the Best Way to Start the Day” Coffee Themed Set from the Dollar Tree (donated by Liberty from B4andAfters) is just part of our Giveaway! But wait– there’s more!!

Alexandra from Eye Love Knots has added these 2 bags of coffee and 4 cute mugs to our Coffee Themed Giveaway!


There are a couple more things in our giveaway, but before I show them to you I want to take you to the #coffeeblogtour you’ve all been waiting for.
