Happy August dear readers, and welcome back 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:


Decorating with teal Aqua Teal decor Teal furniture

Refresh Your Decor With Pops of Teal Color

I shared a fun post all about teal color and the use of teal in decor. I love the modern mix of teal in fall decorating too and I shared a few inspirational examples of how to incorporate teal into the tradition autumn palette.


Love this Fall dining table display. The lantern with the blue and cream pumpkins are a perfect combination

This past week has been extremely busy! It started with a huge yard sale last weekend, as I was on a mission to get my home deep cleaned, decluttered, and detoxed in preparation for some decorative changes and the transition to fall. I gave my music room a mini-makeover and painted the upholstery on two vintage wing chairs too! The chair makeover post is coming up this weekend.


I  am so excited to be hosting the “Transitioning From Summer To Fall Home Tours” on Tuesday, August 21st! Over 20 amazing bloggers will be sharing late summer and early fall decorating ideas, and I will be sharing my music room changes.  You can see a preview of the tour HERE. We would love for your to join us!


Now it’s time for some amazing features from last week’s TFT!

    So happy to find your blog – thanks for stopping at mine. I spied two things right away in your music room that are living in our living room this moment: the RH pillow (mine is on a living room chair reversed at the moment so just plain grey) and the acoustic guitar, which our son plays. I need to know all about painting upholstery! Have done it successfully and also made a big ol’ mess. 🙂
