Encouraging Hearts and Home: Bee happy!

We're finally starting to see flowers and trees in bloom which means lots of busy bees are turning up. While I like that they pollinate our plants for us I am not nearly the fan of bees that I probably should be.  I enjoy them from afar and really loved bee themed crafts and d├ęcor but prefer for the real bees to stay away from me. However we had quite a few bee/ honey posts shared at last week's party that I just could not resist featuring this week. 

And Now, It's Time for This Week's Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop!  


Join your Encouraging Hearts & Home Co-Hosts each week for encouragement and support for your heart & your home. We hope to provide a space that builds each other up and lends a helping hand along the way. With all the negativity in the world, let's shine a positive light!

Linking up with: Thinking Out Loud, 


  1. We had bees for a couple years, and they are SO fascinating -- but tons of work!

    1. My husband's uncle has bees and they sure do seem like a lot of work.

  2. Love the bee with the blanket! So sweet.

  3. I am not a fan of actual bees because they ALWAYS sting me! But all of these bee posts are just so fun and they really make it feel like spring has finally arrived! I need to check out the old book gift bag tutorial! That looks really cool! Thanks for hosting, my friend.


    1. I seem to get stung more than I should too.

  4. As someone who has been stung many times, I couldn't agree more. The Bumble Bee sting is the worst of them all. I've had to learn to appreciate them from afar, but I too, love bee decor.

  5. I love bees (not swarming too closely to me) but I do love to hear them and see them, as well as take pictures of them :-) This bee decor is so pretty!
    Thanks for hosting another linkup!

  6. I am not a fan of bees either but can appreciate their purpose- cute table setting!

  7. I love that adorable crocheted bee. I hope you have a nice weekend Joanne.

  8. I much prefer bees to wasps.
    I love that table setting. So bright and cheerful and I love the sound of the Honey Balm x

  9. I love the bee themes you have featured today! They are adorable! BTW, thank you for hosting!! Always much appreciated! I hope you have a wonderful week!
