Spring, Thursday Favorite Things

Welcoming May with Creative Ideas at Thursday Favorite Things

Happy May 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:


Adorable animal photos, rare animals and wildlife, gorgeous animal images

Pin Away Wednesdays: Awesome Animals and Wildlife

To counteract all of the negative news that bombards us every day, I put together a post of  favorite images from my Awesome Animals and Wildlife Pinterest board. If you are looking for a smile, don’t miss this post!
