Enjoying Summer Flowers At Thursday Favorite Things

Hello 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:


Of Thee I Sing: Patriotic Summer Porch Tour

On Tuesday I shared my patriotic summer porch for the Patriotic Porches Tour with fourteen of my blogging friends. It has been so much fun touring all the porches this week and making new friends! There is still plenty of time to decorate for Independence Day, so be sure to check out all the tours for lots of beautiful patriotic decorating ideas.

My Annabelle hydrangeas are in full bloom and I have enjoyed cutting them and placing them in fun containers on the porch and around the house.

I am hosting a Patriotic Link party beginning this Saturday through Independence Day!

I can’t wait to see what you share!


Now it’s time to enjoy some beautiful flower features from last week’s TFT!
