Happy May and welcome to Thursday Favorite Things! I am so happy to be joining Katherine at Katherine’s Corner and a wonderful group of blogging friends 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! (If you missed last week’s party you can find it here. To get the party started, let’s take a look at what I have been up to recently:
Yesterday I shared all about the tradition of May Day baskets and ideas for making Charming Door Gifts for May Day and Mother’s Day. All of the lovely little baskets, paper cones, jars, bags, and peat pots filled with flowers and treasures are so pretty and creative. Now I can’t wait to make a surprise door gift for my mom for Mother’s Day!
Now that May is here and summer is upon us, it is time to start preparing for outdoor entertaining and relaxing. Check out my recent post of Deck Inspiration including design, maintenance, and upgrade ideas.
There are only two weeks left in the one room challenge! Although our room isn’t as put together as the room in the inspiration photo above, we are finally making some progress and things are on track for this week. Check out my ORC week four update for all the details.
On Monday I will be hosting the “Spring Tea Party” themed blog hop! Twenty-five blogging friends and I will be sharing different ideas related to spring tea parties, tablecapes, teacup collections, Mother’s Day inspiration and more. Be sure to stop back by on Monday to see my latest thrifted vintage tea cups and dishes!
