Refreshing Summer Eats and Treats at Thursday Favorite Things

Happy May 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.

NOTE: The party time has changed to 9:00 a.m. MDT (11:00 EST)



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 recently:

Beautiful rooms with color! Ideas for decorating with color. Colorful interiors to love! How to add color to neutral rooms



We are FINALLY in the process of painting our renovated my house! Most of the main demo is finsihed and the kitchen cabinets have been set, so we can start painting walls in most of the rooms. I am still going with bright and classical off white color scheme throughout on the walls, but I plan to infuse a lot my COLOR to udate my decor and just for a change from the all-white and shabby farmhouse look I have had for so many yeasr. The house is light and bright and I think color in accents and decorative acessories will be beautiful and fun too! Here are some favorite ideas from my Colorful Interiors Pinterest board.



On Friday my baby graduated high school! We are so proud of him! School is out for me too, so it’s time to spend some time with him this summer before he is off to NY for culinary school this fall!


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