Summer, Thursday Favorite Things

It’s Red, White and Blue for Summer at Thursday Favorite Things

Summer decor and garden inspiration from top bloggers

Happy  JUNE and welcome to TFT! This is now my sixth 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!
NOTE: The party time has changed to 9:00 a.m. MDT (11:00 EST).


If you are looking for inspiration, want to share new ideas or make new friends, you’ve come to the right place!


Here’s what I’ve been up to!

I think I am getting my “groove” back! I have FINALLY been inspired get moving on some lingering projects indoors and out. Just a little under two weeks of being out of school has really given my some time to reflect on my home and garden priorities, and also set some new blogging goals. I have been feeling better since giving up sugar and implementing some other health strategies and I do believe GARDEN therapy is so healing for me. This week I accomplished more than I have since we have been living here, including repainting a thrifted patio table that has been cluttering up the carport since March!


Earlier today I shared how I gave this vintage thrifted patio table a makeover  and  peek of how our summer porch is coming along. I would love for you to stop by the porch!
