Summer Decor, Crafts, DIY's summer recipes



Happy JULY 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 Friday I hosted a cool and breezy Coastal Vibes blog hop and it was just dreamy! I shared how I combine my Vintage French and Coastal Cottage Decor In French Vintage Style. Even though summer is rapidly coming to a close, this is a look that I will enjoy for another week or so. You can check out all the other beautiful coastal and nautical ideas on the hop via the links at the end of my post.


On Monday I celebrated “Christmas in July” by sharing some Simple and Festive Christmas Decorating tips in a super inspirational blog hop. I have never really been a Christmas mood this early, but after this hop I am starting to pin ideas for this year already! If you would like to get a head start on the holidays or just want to gather some inspiration, I highly encourage you to check out the hop!


On Tuesday I participated in a fun peaches recipe Pinterest challenge! Check out my Healthy Crock Pot Gluten Free Peaches along with 16 other recipes.

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

    While the calendar says it’s coming on late summer, here in North Georgia we will be summering and sweltering through mid-October! Enjoyed the features this week and I’ve linked #44 and #45 today.

    Another week of great features and links, Amber. And your blog hops sound wonderful. I’m excited to get into all of it! As a fellow song person, I had to look at the music on the stand in your title photo – I’m intrigued with the Fox-Trot Chorus! 😊 Thanks as always for hosting (I’m at #79 this week,) and hope you have a lovely rest of your summer!
