French Country Farmhouse Decor and More at TFT

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:

With the arrival of August comes the realization that while it is still very much summer, fall is just around the corner. I was excited to have the opportunity to collaborate with Arhaus on a post exploring the colors of early fall and how to incorporate them in decor as the summer transitions to fall. Since it is still summer, it might be a bit early for pumpkins and the oranges and reds of fall’s finery but you can easily Take Your Decor From Summer To Fall Using Neutral, Yellow, and Brown

In my early summer home tour I shared a shot of my painted staircase (bottom left) and I received so many positive questions and comments about them that I decided there was enough interest to create a post of Swoonworthy Staircase Makeovers. Now I am wanting to paint the small set of stairs leading from my back door to the kitchen. I will add that project to the never ending to-do list!


Yesterday I participated in the Thrifty Chicks August Challenge with a “birds” theme. I shared some of my Simple Bird Vignettes. I invite you take a look at my post and then check out the other creative bird themed projects. There is always so much creativity when bloggers get together with a common theme!

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

    Beautiful features! Love Michelle’s table, and A Nod to Nave has excellent taste! I think a couple pics are missing links. That one tablescape is SO pretty! I’m at 103 and 104 this week, Amber!
