Summer, Thursday Favorite Things

Inspiration to Kick Off Summer at Thursday Favorite Things

Summer decorating and home decor ideas by top bloggers

Happy summer, and welcome to Thursday Favorite Things! I am thrilled to celebrate my fourth year co-hosting this fabulous weekly link party for bloggers and blog readers with Katherine of Katherine’s Corner and a fantastic group of bloggers!



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:


On Tuesday I participated in a fun Summer Porches Round-Up! Chcek out my post to see my French Country Summer Porch and to find links to eight other fabulous summer porches and outdoor spaces.


Vintage Cottage Weekend

For Vintage Cottage weekend I shared a post with about Vintage Concrete Garden Statues. The post was inspired by a new junkin’ find for the garden.  Check out the post to see what I found (in the garage!)


Tommorrow I will be sharing the first part of my summer home tour! The tours started Monday so you can get caught up by heading over to A Stroll Through Life for all the links. Hope to see you tomorrow!


Now here are some beautiful features from last week’s party!

    Thanks so much for continuing to post this great party Amber! Today, I’m sharing 70-72, including a new garden theme table with butterfly napkin fold, incredible Van Gogh immersion experience, and the story of a Revolutionary War patriot and spy for General Washington. His first name, Peacock (really!), is what inspired my passion for peacock decor. The Brits called him, the Rebel Bird and put 500 pounds sterling on his head! He’s our family’s ancestor.
