Anticipating Spring at Thursday Favorite Things

spring decorating ideas and crafts by top bloggers

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:


Rustic Farmhouse St. Patrick's Day tablescape farmhouse St. Patrick's Day

On Friday I shared my Rustic Farmhouse St. Patrick’s Day Tablescape for the Springtime Tablescape blog hop. Green is my favorite color and March is my birth month, so I am really loving this design right now! To see how I added a bit of French farmhouse flair to an Irish holiday table, be sure to take a look at my post.


Farmhouse Style St. Patrick's Day Decorating Ideas

This week I also shared a round up of the cutest Farmhouse Style St. Patrick’s Day Decor and accessories.  I made a DIY St. Patrick’s Day gnome too using the same process as my Easy To Love Valentine Gnomes with different colors.  He is so cute!

vintage dresser as bathroom vanity repurposed vintage furniture bathroom vanity ideas

This week I also repainted a vintage cabinet that has been sitting in the basement unloved for quite some time. Eventually the cabinet will be a bathroom vanity. I was inspired to share a post of Ideas for Repurposing a Vintage Piece of Furniture Into a Beautiful Bathroom Vanity. It will be a while before we build our new guest bathroom, so for spring I am enjoying the cabinet in the dining room.

Pin Away Wednesdays: Kitchen Inspiration

Before building a new bathroom we will be making some updates to our kitchen this summer. I have been pinning ideas and trying to make some definitive plans for the refresh. Yesterday I shared some favorite pins from my “Kitchen Inspiration” Pinterest board for my Pin Away Wednesday series. If you love French Country, farmhouse, cottage and fixer upper kitchens, don’t miss this post!


I have also been very busy this week preparing for a spring dough bowl Pinterest challenge that I will be participating in on Monday, and also decorating for my spring home tour next Wednesday. I am happy with how things are looking and I am excited to share some new spring decor with you. I hope you will plan to visit next week!


Now it’s time for some amazing features from last week’s TFT party!

    I’m honored to have been chosen as a feature, Amber. My aged clay spring pots were so simple and fun to make and something I just threw together on a whim after seeing some inspiration on a friends blog. Isn’t it awesome to be able to get inspired by each other thru things like Thursday Favorite Things? Thanks so much for all your efforts.

    MERCI BEAUCOUP, Amber! Thanks for featuring our bedroom wall project. Like you, I have a vintage piece of furniture gathering dust in the basement that could use a paint makeover – yours is beautiful! And I had this thought – even though you are probs a lot younger than me – can you imagine if we were back in high school, and I said to you, “one day you will be entering a spring dough bowl Pinterest challenge!” Hahahahahaha. These are crazy times! I’m sharing #142, #143, and #144 from this busy week! xox
