Welcome 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:
This past week I continued to take it easy around the house and was careful not to push myself with blogging as my wrists are still healing up. I did spent quite a bit of time in the garden early in the mornings when the weather was still cool, pruning straggly late summer annuals and helping my tomato plants and veggies to recover from the heat wave from the week we were on vacation. So far everything is bouncing back beautifully and we have been enjoying lots of ripe cherry tomatoes and basil this week.
Gardening tip: Frequently pinch off basil leaves directly under the second set of leaves for bushy plants that keep producing all summer long. Never let basil flower! Pinch, pinch, pinch, and munch, munch, munch!
I have been considering repainting our bedrooms and bathrooms this fall, so I have been exploring different paint color options. If you have struggled with choosing paint, take a look at my recent post for some easy tips.
I was so excited to share my friend Stacey of Poofing the Pillows’ guest post summer home tour this week! After partying today be sure to check out her beautiful, light and bright abode.
On Tuesday I will be joining the Summer Celebration Blog Hop with several blogging friends. Be sure to stop back by as we celebrate all the joys and beauty of summer before fall explodes in blog land!
