Summer, Thursday Favorite Things

Patriotic Summer Fun at Thursday Favorite Things

Patriotic decor and Fourth of July ideas by top bloggers

Happy summer, 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 fun patriotic blog hop! Eleven talented blogging friends joined me in sharing all kinds of ways to celebrate patriotic holidays.


Since I have been spending most of my time in the garden doing some landscape “renos” in preparation for my new SHE SHED, (eek!) I was inspired to create a post about Easy Patriotic Decorating with Flowers, Ferns and Flags.


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

    She shed? Exciting! Always surprised by how much charm is added when a simple little pop of an American flag is added to a vase, a pitcher, a placesetting. Thanks so much for featuring my post! Hope it’s a July 4th with delicious goodies and delightful company. Thanks for hosting TFT today where I am sharing our cottage makeover at #25. Peace to you, friend.

    Amber, I love the thought of you creating a she shed. I know it will be fabulous. I’m in at #68 this week, sharing my vintage and antique purse collection unearthed from over 3 yrs in storage since we downsized back in 2019. My ‘friends’ surround me again. 🙂 Have a great weekend.

    Happy TFT day! Oh my goodness you do keep busy. I look forward to the she shed reveal. The heat and freak storms have really hurt flower garden this year. Even the flowers in the pots are struggling. Great features as always. xo
