Enjoying Winter at Thursday Favorite Things

Happy New Year 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:


Last Friday I shared My Top Ten Most Viewed Posts of 2018. It was really fun to look back over the year and see the posts that my readers loved most. I didn’t know exactly which post had the most views until I reviewed my analytics, and my number one post was a big surprise! Thank you everyone for following along and making 2018 a wonderful year!



On Tuesday I shared my DIY Shabby-Farmhouse Heart Rag Wreath for a fun Pinterest heart wreath challenge. I love making rag wreaths! I am finishing up another variation of this heart wreath which I will be posting this weekend. You can find links to ten other creative bloggers’ beautiful heart wreaths at the end of my  wreath post.

    Stunning and gorgeous features, Amber! So much inspiration to start this new year with a burst of lovely! I’m joining you this week at #154 with a parade of healthy food swaps. It’s really a cheat sheet for me since I consumed way too many carbs and sugary treats over the holidays. Thanks so much for the opportunity to be featured and for bringing us such glorious ideas and beauty.

    Thank you so much for the feature! I was excited and surprised! Thank you! I wanted to tell you that I loved your Heart Rag Wreath. I bought the heart form today at the Dollar Store to try my hand at making one.

    I am #159 this week. Thank you again ~ Christine
