Spring, Thursday Favorite Things

Springing Into May at Thursday Favorite Things

Early Fall Decorating Ideas


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!


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.) To get the party started, here’s what I have been up to recently:

Vintage Style Scissors and Twine for Crafting, Gardening and Decor

Earlier this spring I shared a couple of photos of the cute little shears and twine set from that I received for review from Victorian Trading Company. I have gotten so much use out of the set in both my kitchen and garden, and as a bonus it looks so great in the kitchen. I love the set so much that I was inspired to share a round up of ways to use these sets for gardening, crafting and decor.


“Throwback Thursday”

Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend! If you are still looking for a gift idea for the occasion or need a unique idea for a birthday or “thank you” gift, check out the Lovely Lavender-Themed Gift Basket I put together for my Mom a couple of years ago.  


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