Patriotic decor and Fourth of July ideas by top bloggers

Happy July  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:

DIY Vintage Copper Garden Stake (Easy Dollar Store Hummingbird Hack)

Earlier this week I shared how I transformed a “Ho-hum-hummingbird” from the dollar store into a “vintage” copper garden stake! Check out my post to see how I came up with the end look by experimenting with different paints.

I can’t believe it’s the Fourth of July weekend! I am late on adding patriotic decor indoors this year, but here’s a throwback to a fun  Pinterest Challenge from last summer with a styled patritotic tray theme. I will be adding a few similar touches around the house today and tomorrow in preparation for celebrating the holiday!


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