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 week.
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!
Read more below for some of the details.
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 Decorations.
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 Giveaway!
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 there.

Home Matters Linky Party Guidelines:
- Please take some time to poke around and visit some of the other links.
- Please take some time to check out your hosts and co-hosts on social media.
- We appreciate the variety of blogs on the www; however, the Home Matters Party is for links on matters of the HOME. Please link accordingly.
- We ask that you do not add other Linky Parties, Blog Hops, or Giveaways–unless you begin the party with a new project, recipe or post.
- On the same note, please do not add links of an extremist, political or strong controversial nature. (The hosts and co-hosts read each and every blog post linked and will contact you directly if you have linked something that does not fit into the realm of the party.)
With your help, we can continue to grow the Home Matters Party! Thank you!
We are looking for Co-Hosts. Help us Rock this party!

Hi Donna, it’s great to be partying with you all again. I took a blogging break and then ended up with covid, so it’s been a while. I’m enjoying all the fall inspiration shared here this week. 🙂
So glad you are feeling better. Thanks for coming back to blogging.
Happy Friday, Donna! Love all the pumpkin inspiration!
