Red, White and Blue Decor At Thursday Favorite Things

Patriotic Decorating Ideas Fourth Of July Ideas


Hello and welcome back to Thursday Favorite Things! I am so happy to be joining Katherine at Katherine’s Corner and a wonderful group of bloggers 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 be inspired each week, this is the place to be. *Bloggers: If you would like a chance to be featured, please leave me a comment with the number of your link up. We can’t wait to see what you have to share this week! To start off the party, let’s take a look at what I have been up to recently:

 Gorgeous coral roses farmhouse dining room patriotic farmhouse decor

This past Friday my husband and I celebrated our 17th anniversary! He surprised me with these gorgeous coral roses, and we spent the morning doing a little junkin’. I found a beautiful shabby urn which I have used as a vase for my roses. Last week I also found an amazing, antique ironstone blue transferware platter, just in time for summer vignettes.



Next week I will be joining thirty bloggers for an exciting round of Summer Home tours hosted by Marty at A Stroll Thru Life! I have been adding bits of blue around the house along with patriotic and coastal touches too. My tour goes live on Wednesday and I would love for you to “come over” for a visit!

Beautiful Spring and tea party themed decorating ideas from bloggers

Spring Tea Party Features

I was so excited to share some highlights from the Spring Tea Party that I hosted last week along with eleven blogging friends from the Tea and Roses Blog Hop.I really enjoyed all the posts that were linked up and I had a great time celebrating the beauty of spring and tea parties with all my friends in blog land.



Office Spaces 15

Chic Home Office Inspiration

This past week I started working on cleaning up the craft room and I decided it wasn’t being utilized to it’s fullest potential. I realized I truly need a designated office space and I am thinking of turning the craft room into a chic office. I found so many great ideas that I decided to share some chic home office inspiration.


Now for this week’s party!
