Summer, Thursday Favorite Things

Celebrating Late Summer at Thursday Favorite Things

Late summer decor summer recipes gardening ideas

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things! I am so happy to be joining Katherine at Katherine’s Corner and a wonderful group of blogging friends 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 be inspired each week, this is the place to be. *Bloggers: If you would like a chance to be featured, please leave me 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 last week’s party you can find it here.???? To get the party started, let’s take a look at what I have been up to recently:


Boho Chic mix of vintage and modern design elements boho decor

This week I explored the Boho Chic Decor Trend in my Vintage Style series. If you are primarily a vintage or traditional decorator but you like to incorporate a few trendy pieces into your decor to keep things looking fresh and updated, check out this post for ideas.



Yesterday I shared highlights from my Flower Arrangments, Bouquets, and Gatherings Pinterest board for my weekly Pin Away Wednesday Series. If you are a flower lover be sure to check out the post and my Pinterest board for tons of gorgeous floral inspiration.



Even though fall is showing up in  all the retail stores, summer is here to stay for several more weeks. Why not celebrate all it has to offer? That’s exactly what 22 blogging friends and I did on Monday for the “Summer Celebration” Blog Hop! There were so many fun ideas, it was like reading a magazine with something different and inspiring in each post. If you are still loving summer or if you are pinning ideas for next year, be sure to check out all the fun!


I shared how I decorated our breakfast nook with a sunny summer garden theme using late summer garden treasures. My table vignette only lasted through taking the photographs, since I couldn’t resist enjoying some of those delicious veggies and herbs for lunch!

    Thank you so much for the feature, Amber. Now if I could just find more time to RELAX in that courtyard and not babysit the blog…oy oy oy. 🙂 I love your boho chic ideas and would love to just play with all of my quirky collected things, flowers, and tablescapes. Life is always getting the way of such shenanigans. I’m sharing at #116 today, and it’s a tender topic…the genetic mutation diagnosis that has taken me on a journey with surgeries and new challenges but also great personal growth. Without such curveballs, I would simply not be awakened or as compassionate so I welcome them with a surrendered heart. I know you get it. Thanks for the opportunity to share, and I wish you peace right where you are.
