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:


antique china cabinet makeover

I finally shared my Antique China Cabinet Makeover Reveal! Be sure to take a look at my post to see the full transformation.  I purchased the cabinet at an estate sale and I enjoyed the makeover so much I have been scouring facebook marketplace and vintage furniture groups to see if there are any other old furniture pieces that just need some tlc. If you are new to shopping on fb, check out a guide to using Facebook groups.




I am so excited to finally have a spot for my favorite antique and vintage dishes! I will be sharing a post all about the treasures in the cabinet in an upcoming post.

Pin Away Wednesdays: Coastal Style and Beach Cottage Decor

We are leaving for the beach on Saturday and I am so excited! Yesterday I shared a post of highlights from my Coastal Style and Beach Cottage Decor Pinterest board for my weekly Pin Away Wednesday series. If you love the beach and nautical treasures be sure to check out the post and my Pinterest board for tons of inspiration.



I absolutely love all of the furniture and craft features this week! From DIY furniture to embroidered crafts or  handmade ceramics,  the tft creative bloggers always inspire with what they share here at the party. If you’re looking for the best places to buy your craft supplies, check online to compare prices. If you are new to DIY’s and wonder how much it costs to craft, the thrifty bloggers at TFT always share how to design on a dime. 


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

    Thank you for featuring my sautéed zucchini! Thanks for hosting! This week I am bringing more goodness from the garden. Tuna Salad in a Cantaloupe Bowl with cottage cheese and pineapple kicks off the list. Then a cucumber, tomato and red onion salad for a lite summer lunch. To round off the menu is a simple but delicious Cucumber and Onion side dish! Enjoy!
