Summer, Thursday Favorite Things

Beautiful and Bright Summer Ideas to Inspire at Thursday Favorite Things


Happy JULY and welcome to Thursday Favorite Things! I am thrilled to celebrate my FIFTH year co-hosting this fabulous weekly link party for bloggers and blog readers with Katherine of Katherine’s Corner and a fantastic group of bloggers! We recently celebrated the 600th TFT! Please hop over to Katherine’s after linking up to congratulate her on the milestone and to thank her for starting this wonderful party.

NOTE: The party time has changed to 9:00 a.m. MDT (11:00 EST)

If you would like to make some new friends, grow your blog audience, or just find some weekly inspiration, this is the place to be! *Bloggers: Please leave a comment with the number of your link up for a chance to be featured at next week’s party. The hosts are all looking forward to what you’ll share this week! (If you missed the last party and the AWESOME features, you’ll find it here. Here’s what I have been up to recently:



We are down to two weeks until we move in to our new house! I still have some major decision to make, such as what color to paint my beautiful board and batten dining room. Is primer white an option haha???

Check out my New House Kitchen and Dining Room Progress post for lots of pictures and details of what’s going on and what we have left to do!  I LOVE how things are turning out!

    Hi Amber! I’m so excited to see your new home in its entirety. I know you’re super busy. Thank you for still co-hosting FTF. Those adorable bee soaps would make a great take away to go with my bee tablescape I’m sharing with my July garden at #32 this week. Love those!
