Create and Craft, Spring, Thursday Favorite Things

Bright and Beautiful Inspiration for Gloomy Times at Thursday Favorite Things

Happy spring and welcome 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:


Spring Redecorating Ideas Spring Home Decor Refresh

There’s just something about spring that makes us not only want to clean, but also to refresh our living spaces. Recently I shared a post about Why Spring is the Perfect Time to Decorate Your Home. I love to do a little “re-feathering” of my spring nest each year!
