Beautiful Ideas to Inspire July Days at Thursday Favorte Things

Summer Decor, Crafts, DIY's summer recipes

Happy July and welcome to TFT! This is now my sixth 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!
NOTE: The party time has changed to 9:00 a.m. MDT (11:00 EST).



If you are looking for inspiration, want to share new ideas or make new friends, you’ve come to the right place!


Here’s what I’ve been up to!

More work has continued this week and more progress has been made on our master bathroom and dining room, and even a little on the sunroom! I do think we will have most of the major projects complete by the time school starts back!

I shared on IG this week that I switched out the smaller cabinet in the dining room for the prettier shabby china cabinet that is a bit larger and I didn’t think would fit, so it has been sitting in the cluttered sunroom for months because I was on the fence about taking it to consignment. When we started painting in the sunroom I had to either find a new spot for it or take it consigment so I decided to try it out in the dining room and ended up loving it!

I am also working on a summer tablescape for this month’s pinterest challenge that I will share at the end of the month, as well as unboxing and arranging china that I didn’t have space for in the smaller cabinet, which then led to restyling the larger built in…and a MESS! More about that in a post tomorrow!


Summer Decorating at the New House

This weeke marks one year since we “started moving in” to the RED brick home. I say started moving in because we moved in phases over several months, which is really why I think it has taken so long to get settled. Here’s a look back at what I shared this time last year. Check it out for a reminder to compare with an home reno update post I am sharing this weekend!



Now here are some beautiful features from last week’s party!
