Happy New Year and welcome back to Thursday Favorite Things! I am thrilled to be joining Katherine at Katherine’s Corner and wonderful group of bloggers for my third year as a co-hostess for this fantastic weekly link party for bloggers and blog readers too! If you are looking to grow your blog, make new friends, and or simply to be inspired each week, this is the place to be! *Bloggers: If you would like a chance to be featured, please leave a comment with the number of your link up. We can’t wait to see what you have to share this week! (If you missed the last party you can find it here.???? To get the party started, let’s take a look at what I have been up to recently:



I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year’s Day! I spent the day packing away all of our Christmas decorations with the exception of our flocked tree and some rustic winter decor that will transition into winter.




Traditional and vintage Christmas decor Christmas home tour

A Merry Christmas Home Tour

If you missed my Christmas home tour that is totally understandable, since I didn’t get around to posting it until Christmas Day! I really loved the traditional look and feel of our home this holiday season and I expect that next year’s Christmas decor will look very similar. As much as I loved all the festive red and green, now I am ready to enjoy some calm and cozy neutral winter decor.

    Hi Amber! I may need those white chocolate cookies in my life…holy yum. Hope your year is off to a great start. We went to a concert with friends for New Year’s Eve and loved being in a historic theatre at midnight – I danced right into 2020. Definitely time to #cozyondown! I’m sharing inspo at #127 (info about my kitchen counters) and #128 (I’m crazy about hearts 12 months of the year!) today and thank you kindly for hosting. 🙂

    Thank you for hosting a wonderful weekly linky party. I am honored to be included in this week’s round up of features for a Holiday Grand Finale at Thursday Favorite Things. No new post to link up this week since my life has been full and blessed with holiday celebrations and with getting ready for a cruise to the Panama Canal with aunts and uncles!

    May you have peace, good health, and prosperity in 2020!

    Amber, wishing you all the best in 2020. How are you coming along with your masters’ studies? Enrolled in new courses for spring? You’re really juggling all the irons quite well! I’m #170 today, and looking forward to a bright new year.
