Seven Summer DIY Projects At Thursday Favorite Things


Hello and welcome back to Thursday Favorite Things! I am blessed 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:



All this past weekend and the first part of this week I have been busy getting ready for the Tea and Roses Blog Hop with eleven blogging friends. The hop started Tuesday and it has been nothing short of amazing! All the ladies linked up such diverse and creative posts, you simply must take a look at them when you finish linking up here today!

For my tea party post I shared a Classical Tea For Beethoven and Me! This has personally been my favorite blog post I have shared here at Follow The Yellow Brick Home and I truly hope you will have a chance to check it out. It was just so fun and it gave me a chance to try out my brand new camera for blogging!


I also made a DIY No-Sew  Vintage-Style Tablecloth with Pom Pom Trim to use for my tea party tablescape, and it has been a hit with all my readers and friends!


To celebrate the hop we are also hosting a $75 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway which you can enter at the end of this post or at any of the blogs on the Tea and Roses blog hop. There will also be a spring tea party link up next weekend and you are all invited to join us by linking up any of your spring related home tours, decorating, crafts or tea party recipe posts!



Before we move on to the party features, did you all get chance to see our TFT co-hostess Angelina’s swoonworthy Petite Haus Spring House Tour? It is just stunning!

    Thanks for the linkup and giveaway! I recently started fostering kittens, so if I won the gift card, I would put the funds towards cat supplies to help with future litters (they need new toys / cleaning between litters to reduce the spread of disease.)
