Whimsy Home Wednesday No. 43

Welcome to the Whimsy Home Wednesday Link Party. Today we are sharing the chosen posts from Whimsy Home Wednesday No. 42.

I apologize to those of you who have been linking up each week, I have not been able to get to each and every link the past few weeks.  I enjoy supporting our blogging communities, but I am a bit overwhelmed lately.  Life, that darn little guy, I call him a guy since he has to be, right?  Throwing a wrench into my plans... kidding of course, about the guy part, but not so about being overwhelmed.

In other news, I recently had the opportunity to try pheasant eggs, and can I tell you they are awesome?  A gentleman who works with my husband brought them in and asked if anyone was interested in trying them.  He thought of me since I have been all about trying new things in 2023.  

I was delighted, as you can see, they are small.  If memory serves, I believe I had seven eggs in a regular sized ramekin.  The coloring is beautiful having some green, and then an almost parchment color as well.  I highly recommend if you have never tried them.  

I considered making Deviled Eggs with them, but have not had the time to give it a go.  I thought they would be darling being as small as they are.  Earlier this year, I had my first Farm Fresh Eggs, what a treat that was, see trying new things around here.  😉

Congratulations to the featured posts of Whimsy Home Wednesday! I enjoy being able to visit each post to see what other's are up to around the web, don't you?

This week, I am excited to share Beth with Whispers of the Heart and her Grandma's Depression Glass on a Summer Tablescape, and her Tablecloth too!  I fell in love with each piece, and the story of how Beth's table came to be.  

I am sure you have learned by now, I am a sucker for just about anything vintage.  The tablecloth reminded me of hand-painted linens of the past.  She even came across napkins that complimented the table perfectly.  This also goes to show you red and green is not just for Christmas.  Go ahead, go check out her table and how it all came together.

  1. Thanks so much for featuring my Geraniums tablescape, I appreciate it! I added a link to your blog at the end of that post.

    1. You are so welcome Beth, I loved it! There were so many components that reminded me of my own grandmother. Thank you for the link, I appreciate that. Have a wonderful week!

  2. Thanks for having us over, Cara. Your green depression glass and tablecloth are summer perfect! Hope you are having a great week.

    1. I loved Beth's tablescape too, she did a wonderful job putting those depression glass pieces with the table linens perfectly. Happy to have you Debra.

  3. Thank you so much for hosting! Last week I was feeling very overwhelmed. I hope this week treats you better and is less overwhelming. I love that you were able to try out those eggs. I tried farm-fresh eggs when I was a little girl. My mother had a neighbor who would bring us over some. It is always nice trying new things.

    1. I hope this week is a better week for you Stephanie. That is awesome to have a neighbor bring over farm fresh eggs. I agree, it is nice to step outside our comfort zone every now and then to try new things in life. You just never know what will happen in life when you do.

  4. Hello, Cara! Sounds like you've been busy, seems like there aren't enough hours in the day or maybe I just need to slow down a bit, lol!! Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful week!

    1. It has been busy. You probably should slow down Donna, maybe we all need to do that. :) So happy you have joined you have joined us!

  5. Cara,

    Thanks so much for hosting this lovely party each and every week!! I really appreciate the time and effort that goes into it along with visiting all the links and choosing Features!!! Thank You!! I hope you are having a great week!!

    1. It will go well Debbie, especially a lot of care and prayer. Unfortunately, we were not so blessed, but that is how we ended up with our ornery pup Bentley. <3

  6. Hi Cara! Thanks so much for the party and I am sad to hear that life has been difficult. I feel ya, and I'm hoping you are in a better place. I bet the pheasant eggs were good! I've only tried quail eggs, which I enjoyed. Stay well friend. XO- MaryJo

    1. I kept calling them quail eggs because they are small, and I had to stand corrected several times, lol! I thought they were delicious. Hope you have a wonderful week MaryJo!

  7. I love looking through all of the fun blog projects that people create. Thank you for hosting this fun link party.

    1. So happy to have you here Wendy, your ideas are always so creative.
