Happy June and welcome to Thursday Favorite Things! I am thrilled to be joining Katherine at Katherine’s Corner and wonderful group of bloggers for my third year 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 or simply to be inspired each week, this is the place to be! *Bloggers: If you would like a chance to be featured, please leave 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 the last party you can find it here.) To get the party started, let’s take a look at what I have been up to recently:
Last Friday I joined my friend Marty of A Stroll Thru Life and 20 other bloggers for the Summer 2020 Home Tours. I enjoyed decorating with my “use what you have” motto, shopping my basement for vintage finds and fresh flowers from my garden.
I am really enjoying how our home and garden is looking for summer and I would love for you to “visit” to see what I came up with. You will find links for all of the fabulous tours at the end of my post.
The new “old-fashioned cottage garden” landscaping in our backyard that I have been telling you about for the last month is really coming along. The whole project was actually inspired by this vintage thrifted sink. It’s crazy how one find can completely change our home or gardens. That’s the life of a vintage junker!
Here is a sneak peek of how my husband repurposed the sink into a potting bench as a Mother’s Day gift! The potting bench was the catalyst for all the work that has continued over the past five weeks, but it has been well worth it. I promise to share more updates this coming week along with a few photos of these old lilies that are now blooming profusely.
Because I have been working so hard outside and spending almost all of my time in the garden, I have enjoyed the simplicity of my summer table setting. Soon I will be setting a full patriotic tablescape and decorating the dining room with vintage Americana. I love bringing out the red, white and blue for summer!
I am excited to join several friends for a Patriotic Tablescape blog hop on June 23rd! I really loved how my dining room turned out last year, so I have revisted my Stars and Stripes Forever tablescape post for inspiration. If you like vintage patriotic decor, you might enjoy a look back too!
