July Summer Vibes At Thursday Favorite Things

Happy July 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:

Happy 242nd Birthday America!

Yesterday I shared a little vignette with some patriotic Rae Dunn pottery and a few vintage finds to wish our country a Happy 242nd Birthday! I hope everyone had a safe and blessed Fourth of July!


This past week has been full of festive, Fourth of July celebrations in blog land! I shared a post featuring some of my favorite patriotic decorating inspiration from bloggers, Instagram, and Pinterest.


The Patriotic Party Link Up has been so much fun! There were over 100 creative patriotic posts shared at the party! It will be a great place to refer back to early next summer to find lots of Fourth of July ideas in one place. Many of the decorating ideas and recipes will work for Labor Day too.

This week it was my pleasure to introduce my readers to the lovely Cottingsley Garden Sprites! They have been adding touches of magic and whimsy to my garden. Hopefully their magic will help keep all the flowers alive during this intense July heat!
