The Softer Side of Autumn at Thursday Favorite Things

Happy October dear readers, and welcome back 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:


On Monday I participated in the Halloween Home Tours hosted by Tammy of Pink Peppermint Design. There were so many cute ideas on the tour that I can’t wait to try out!



Cute ideas for Halloween Friendly and Whimsical Halloween Decor

Halloween Decorating With A Touch Of Whimsy

I am still busy working on this year’s Halloween decor, so for the tour I shared some of my favorite whimsical Halloween decor. If you don’t like the gory and macabre Halloween decorations, check out my post for some fun alternatives.


7 easy ways to improve your health clean eating

Lately I have been having some difficulties with chronic health issues, so I have been reevaluating my diet and routine to see if I can make some changes that might be helpful.  This week I shared Seven Dietary and Lifestyle Changes For Improved Health. In the past I have really been able to manage my symptoms using these seven tips, and I have already started re-implementing them. Even if you don’t have any serious health issues, these seven changes can still be helpful in maintaining good health.

This past Saturday I shared some fun Halloween features from the Hauntingly Beautiful Decor Halloween Link Party! The party is live every Saturday at 7:00 p.m. EST and lasts through Wednesday at midnight all through October. We certainly hope you will join us for some gorgeous and creative Halloween inspiration this weekend!



On Monday I will be sharing my “Music Of The Night” Halloween Tea Party  as part of the Halloween Tablescape hop hosted by Chloe Crabtree of Celebrate and Decorate.  My regular blog readers will probably be able to guess the mystery guest who will be making an appearance at the tea party! If you are new to my blog, be sure to stop back by on Monday to find out who the mystery guest might be!




On Tuesday I will be hosting the Bountiful Fall Baskets Blog Hop!  A group of special blogging friends will be sharing the different ways that we incorporate baskets full of autumn goodness in and around our homes for the season. If you are a fall lover and basket lover, you won’t want to miss this hop. The preview pictures are beautiful!


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

    Oh, Amber, my heart is fluttering this morning as I absorb all the lovely you are teasing us with! Merci beaucoup for featuring me today and making me feel all fancy and special. I am partying with you today at #80, where I share an intimate look at my blogging/writing journey. My curiosity is piqued about those beautiful fall baskets (that photo is KILLER) and your little statues with blindfolds! Thanks for hosting and showcasing so much lovely – we need all the light in today’s confusing world that we can get. 🙂
