Hello and welcome back to Thursday Favorite Things! I am blessed to be joining Katherine at Katherine’s Corner and a wonderful group of bloggers as a co-hostess for this fantastic weekly blog party. I can’t wait to see what you have to share this week! If you are looking to grow your blog, make new friends, and be inspired each week, this is the place to be. If you would like a chance to be featured, please leave me a comment with the number of your link up. Before we start the party, here’s what I have been up to recently:
Hello friends! Do you spend as much time as I do swooning over beautiful farmhouse kitchens online? I have always loved farmhouse style, (I called it “country” before the “fixer upper” and “farmhouse” craze hit!) Since so much of farmhouse style is based on farm life and food, the kitchen is probably the easiest room in the house to achieve the look.
Are you looking for ways to add more French farmhouse style or a bit of a natural style vibe to your home? If so, then these faux olive tree topiaries might be just what you are looking for! I had been wanting to find some type of trees or topiaries for each side of our fireplace for a while. I have always loved real olive trees like the ones pictured below, but haven’t been ready to commit to the maintenance of a live indoor tree just yet.
Happy Monday everyone! I hope everyone had a blessed Easter holiday. Tonight we wrapped up the Spring and Easter Joys Link Party and a wonderful time of celebrating Easter 2018 in blogland.

Here is a round-up of some of my favorite posts from the party. These posts are just stunning, so be sure to check them out via the links provided. Read more
Happy spring everyone! Are you giving your home a style refresh for the season? I have been working on several different makeovers and refreshes all throughout the house, concentrating mainly on unifying each room with a neutral color scheme which is calm and classic. Even within neutral homes, adding fresh touches of green using indoor plants can be very much needed for interest and a bit of color. Indoor plants can work in all different styles of homes, especially modern or boho chic. Today I am sharing some beautiful plants that will work beautifully for those of us who prefer, farmhouse, French country and cottage style decor. *This post contains affiliate links.Read more
“Tweet-Tweet!” (It’s spring!) Last week I got together with nine other decorating friends for the Hop Into Spring Blog Hop to share our homes all decorated for spring. As I was visiting all the tours on the hop I noticed all the different and creative ways that birds and bird themes were used. Today I am sharing a highlights post to show how we all “feathered our nests” with birds, eggs, and nests for the season.
I always love using birds and nests for spring and summer decorating. This year I created a bird vignette inside my dough bowl. I used a chippy bird candle holder topped by a cloche full of little eggs, and a mossy nest filled with eggs and a sweet vintage bird brooch. Read more
