Summer, Thursday Favorite Things

Late Summer Flowers and Recipes at Thursday Favorite Things

Happy August 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!





With the exception of the All About Home Link Party on Monday, I continued to take a little bloggy break this week to get things ready around the house and garden in preparation for back to school, and to enjoy summer and to do a little school clothes shopping before school starts on Monday.  I am still however getting things together for an August refresh around the house and a Sunflowers themed blog hop coming up on the 19th.  Here’s a look back at my French Farmhouse Sunflowers and Lemons Tablescape if you are looking for late summer table ideas.


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