Merry Christmas and welcome back to Thursday Favorite Things! I am so happy to be joining Katherine at Katherine’s Corner and a wonderful group of blogging friends 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 be inspired each week, this is the place to be. *Bloggers: If you would like a chance to be featured, please leave me 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 last week’s party you can find it here???? To get the party started, let’s take a look at what I have been up to recently:


Decorating for Christmas with a musical theme

Have Yourself A Merry Musical Christmas

On Friday I joined 16 special blogging friends for the Merry Musical Blog Hop! This hop was so special for me because the theme was based on three of my passions—music, home decor, and Christmas. The hop was so enjoyable and unique! Seeing everyone’s music themed Christmas decor and reading about their musical Christmas traditions truly added to my enjoyment of the holiday season. You can check out all of the amazing and interesting posts via the link up at the end of my hop post.



Cute and Cozy Red, Black and Gray Farmhouse Christmas home tour

Life on Little Creek Christmas Home

On Tuesday my Instagram friend and #madforplaiddecor co-host Karen Markle shared a guest post featuring her beautiful Indiana home all decked out for Christmas. Karen’s home is full of vintage and modern farmhouse style decor and it just looks so cozy! I love the gray, red, black, and plaid colors she used this year. If you are on Instagram you can see more of her style and follow her awesome Instagram account, @lifeonlittlecreek.
