    Spring Into Summer with Inspiring Ideas at Thursday Favorite Things

    Happy May 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:



    English Country Cottage Kitchens English Kitchen Style

    As our kitchen renovation moves forward, I find myself becoming a bit indecisive over a few things. I am not sure if it’s reluctance to spend money given the current state of world affairs, or just that I love so many different looks that it’s hard for me to make big decorating decisions. One thing is for certain—I will definitely be adding vintage cottage style to the kitchen, incorporating elements of French Country, farmhouse and English Country style. I enjoy learning more about each of these styles and pinning inspiration for the future. This weekend I shared a post on How to Achieve the English Country Kitchen Look as I was gathering ideas. I just love a cozy kitchen!

    This time of year our neighborhood is just gorgeous as everything is almost fully bloomed out and late spring flowers, trees and shrubs are putting on a glorious show. Recently I shared some photos of a few of my favorite spots along my walks up and down our street that I think you will enjoy.

    It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood: Late Spring in Bloom

    Late spring flowers irises salvia beautiful flowers in spring

    Hello again, my friends! Can you believe how fast May is flying by? Even though the days have been running together since the worldwide shelter in place began back in March, nature hasn’t seemed to notice. I have found a constant sense of joy, peace and solitude this spring by watching nature wake up and grace us with it’s beauty, despite whatever else may be happening in the world. This past week was absolutely gorgeous, so I took a couple of walks around our neighborhood to enjoy late spring in bloom. Today I am sharing some of my favorite spots along our road that I hope you will also enjoy. Read more

    Hello and welcome to the 4oth All About Home link party! I can’t believe we are celebrating this milestone already! When Debra and I started this fun party back in August, little did we know how important it would become in less than a year’s time. Being able to gather with friends each week during the pandemic has created a sense of normalcy and peace during an uncertain time. Of course, seeing all of the inspiration and beauty each week has been a healing balm as well. As always, I am thankful you are here to party with us, and I look forward to what will be shared at the party this week! Read more
