Late Summer Joys That Inspire at Thursday Favorite Things

Happy JULY and welcome to Thursday Favorite Things! I am thrilled to celebrate my FIFTH 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! We recently celebrated the 600th TFT! Please hop over to Katherine’s after linking up to congratulate her on the milestone and to thank her for starting this wonderful party.

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. Here’s what I have been up to:

All I have been doing recently is painting, painting and more painting! I did not get a chance to break away for an update post on the new house this week, so sharing a throwback to a beautiful post full of pretty coastal Christmas ideas I definitely have beachy things on my mind since we are taking a much needed short trip to the beach this weekend-Tuesday. We are working hard the next few days on trying to “finish” things up to get moved in before schools starts. We have less than three weeks left! Yuck!  I will have a chance to do a big update post on evening while on vacation. Wish me luck on finding some treasures for our new home while I hit my  favorte thrift shops at the beach!
