Early April Beauty at Thursday Favorite Things


Happy  APRIL and welcome to TFT! This is now my sixth year co-hosting this fabulous weekly link party for bloggers and blog readers with Katherine of Katherine’s Corner and a fantastic group of bloggers!

If you are looking for inspiration, want to share new ideas or make new friends, you’ve come to the right place!


Here’s what I’ve been up to…


Easter and Birthday Weekend (My 49th “Birthster”)

No new posts this week since it’s Spring break, and I have been visiting my son in NY with my family. We celebrated Easter and my 49th birthday on the beautiful banks of the Hudson River in historic Hyde Park.  I pray all of you had a blessed Easter too!

While there we also visited the historic Vanderbilt Mansion and drove around the park. On our next visit we will certainly tour grounds and gardens!

We had a wonderful visit and just returned home late last night after our town and region had experienced horrible tornadoes the day before! Luckily everyone in our community is safe butnsome  homes and businesses were completely destroyed. Please keep Eastern KY, WV, and OH in your prayers.


Easy DIY Spring Wreaths and Door Baskets

Spring has really just sprung (if it would ever warm up!) So there’s still plenty of time to decorate your door with a spring wreath or basket. Check out some of my spring door decor ideas from years past for ideas.


Now it’s time for some lovely features from last week’s party!
