Spring, Thursday Favorite Things

Spring-to-Summer Inspo Thursday Favorite Things

Happy May, and welcome to Thursday Favorite Things! I am so excited to be co-hosting this fabulous party with Katherine of Katherine’s Corner and a fantastic group of bloggers for this inspiring weekly link party for bloggers and blog readers!


f 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 recently:

Garden Gatherings: Purple Herbs Mini-Bouquet

Last weekend in between the rain storms I took a stroll around the garden and cut some purple blooms to make a simple bouquet. On Monday  I shared a post all about the bouquet as the first post in my new “Garden Gatherings” series! 


In my new series I will share the informal bouquets and arrangements I make throughout the seasons using what I have available in my garden and landscape. 


Country Sampler Magazine Feature!

I am so excited and honored that my Stars and Stripes Forever Patriotic Tablescape is featured in the July 2021 issue of  Country Sampler Magazine! I will share a little more about the feature in an upcoming post!



“Throwback Thursday”

Stars and Stripes Forever Patriotic Tablescape

For this week’s Throwback Thursday it seems fitting to revisit my original Stars and Strips Forever Patriotic Tablescape post. Although this tablescape was designed for the Fourth of July, there are still some cute Americana ideas within the post to inspire your Memorial Day decorating too.


Now it’s time for some creative features from last week’s party!
