Late summer crafts, diys, decor and recipes

Happy AUGUST, and welcome to Thursday Favorite Things! I am thrilled to be joining Katherine at Katherine’s Corner and wonderful group of bloggers for my third year 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 or simply to be inspired each week, this is the place to be! *Bloggers: If you would like a chance to be featured, please leave 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 the last party you can find it here.)???? To get the party started, let’s take a look at what I have been up to recently:

August is National Peach Month! Enjoying Peaches in Recipes and Decor

Did you know that August is National Peach Month? I love savoring all things peaches in August! Earlier this week I shared a post about Enjoying Peaches in Recipes and Decor. Check out my post for some gorgeous (and delicious) peaches inspiration. I can’t wait to make a gluten-free peach cobbler later this week!


“Throwback Thursday”

Last week I announced that I am going to include seasonal “throwback Thursday” post at TFT each week for fun. Today’s throwback is my Transitioning from Summer-to-Fall Home Tour from 2018. It is an odd time of year to decorate, but I actually love the challenge of decorating “in between” these two seasons. I try to look for ways to hold on to summer, but also start adding hints of fall without jumping straight into my pumpkin totes!





Now it’s time for some beautiful features from last week’s party!

      Hi Jenna! I finally found some fabulous peaches at a little farmer’s stand along the side of the road today. I ate 2 1/2 as soon as I got home. I had to stop myself so I would have enough left for cobbler. I may just head back there for extras tomorrow!

      Thanks for linking up!
