Summer decorating and home decor ideas by top bloggers

Happy July  and welcome to Thursday Favorite Things! I am so excited to be co-hosting this fabulous party with Katherine of Katherine’s Corner and a fantastic group of bloggers for this inspiring weekly link party for bloggers and blog readers!


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 recently:



Give a Book a New Look! Scrap Paper DIY Book Cover and Ribbon Book Mark

Earlier today I shared how I gaved a used book a new look with old scap paper (calender pages). I just love my “new” book all about butteflies!



Pin Away Wednesdays

In two days I will be standing with my feet in the sand in surf! To get in beach mood I have been enjoying all kinds of beautiful beachy and coastal inspiration from my Coastal Cottage and Beach Decor Style Pinterest Board. So many dreamy pins!


Throwback Thursday

Gorgeous Coastal Style Decor Nautical Themed Decoratiing

Here’s another throwback of Easy Breezy Coastal Cottage Style Inspo. One day we plan to have a beach retirement cottage with decor similar to the photos I shared in this post.



I hope all of you had a wonderful Fourth of July! Ours was relaxing and low key. We let off some “big time” fireworks for the kids in our neighborhood and enjoyed some delicious summer fruit salad with candied pecans and h0memade raspberry vinegrette specially made by my 16 year-old son (chef-to-be.)  Yummy!


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