Summer, Thursday Favorite Things

Home and Garden August Inspiration at Thursday Favorite Things

Happy AUGUST and welcome to Thursday Favorite Things! I am so excited to be co-hosting this fabulous party with Katherine of Katherine’s Corner and a fantastic group of bloggers for this inspiring weekly link party for bloggers and blog readers!

If you would like to make some new friends,  grow your blog audience, or just find some weekly inspiration, this is the place to be! *Bloggers: Please leave a comment with the number of your link up for a chance to be featured at next week’s party. The hosts are all looking forward to what you’ll share this week! (If you missed the last party and the AWESOME features, you’ll find it here.) To get the party started, here’s what I have been up to recently:


Last week and this past weeked I was super busy getting ready for back-to-school. Day one with in-person students went off without a hitch! It was wonderful to have in-person students singing again!


August Garden Highlights Late Summer Flower Power

On Monday I shared my August Garden Highlights as part of the “Late Summer Flower Power” blog hop hosted by My Thrift Store Addiciton.  One of the hardest parts of returning to work was leaving my garden! I spent the last couple of weeks getting it cleaned up and ready to transition to fall, and I even planted a new pollinator garden! 

Check out my August Garden post to see what’s in bloom. You will find links to the other beautiful gardens at the end of my post.


“Throwback Thursday”

Transitioning from Summer to Fall Home Tour

This weekend I will spend some time adding some early fall touches as I transition my home between summer and fall. Check out my throwback post to see how I have decorated for this “in-between seasons” in the past.
