Celebrating the Beauty of Summer (This week's TFT)

Hello dear friends. Welcome to this week's Thursday Favorite Thing party! Thankfully, I am back in the pink and able to be more present this week. I hope you'll forgive me the absence of features last week. That was a first for me, but couldn't be helped.
I'm doing everything I can to survive the heat. How about you? I am such a Fall/Winter person, this is my personal worst season like, but I do love all the beauty and Summer traditions that come with this (too hot) season.
Sounds like a perfect segway to your beautiful Features, doesn't it?
Kimberly at The Lou Lou Girls is speaking my language with her No Churn Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Add to it that it is 97F outside as I write this! No A/C! I could use a sheet pan of these today, Kimberly! Thank you! 

Jennifer at Celebrating Everyday Life shared this beautiful setting with us in her How to Host an Easy & Beautiful Patriotic Party post.

Penny from Penny's Vintage Home shared her daughter absolutely gorgeous Farmhouse Table & 12 Chairs for $200 I'm in Love! This is the table of my dreams and they built it right in the house! What's not to love?!
Pam from Everyday Living Sweet Peaches & Summer Flowers: Monday Morning Blooms
Paula at Sweet Pea made these DIY Footstool while up at the lake. Aren't they wonderful? I love her Adirondack chairs too! What a beautiful spot to enjoy your morning coffee!
Sandra from Dinner at Eight's Hot Summer Colors for Brunch are just beautiful! As a matter of fact, her whole table is gorgeous! 
I just couldn't pass up Michele from The Scrap Shoppe Blog's Individual Blackberry Cobblers Double yum! She really has the cobbler recipe down. I'm going to make them with all the fresh blueberries I have in my house. Shh.
That's it for me this week, but remember to check all my cohost sites out, as we pick our own and often very different features!

Thank you all so much for sharing all of your incredibly talented posts and creations! I just LOVE seeing so much beauty in one place.
Wonderful weekend wishes to you all.
Many Blessings,
This is us!

Canadian Butter Tarts Recipe ~ Cooking Up Memories

Sometimes we bake for fun, most often for need, and I think, sometimes just for the comfort of an old memory.  There is a small way to keep those loved ones and times that have passed on present with us. Food and Recipes enjoyed from another time always seem to bring us back to those people and places. The familiarity brings us comfort from times gone by.

My Summer Favorite Things ~ (This Week's TFT)

Hello, friends.  I'm so glad you are here. Thank you for your visit.
 I'm trying to get caught up again this week after last week's holiday and festivities.  There always seems so much to do and so little time to do it in.  But, I'm just going to keep taking it one day at a time. (I don't really have a choice) :)  How was your holiday weekend?  I hope you enjoyed some quality time with family and friends and had a chance to celebrate in whatever way makes you happy.
How creative you all have been!  I just love looking through all your link ups!
Here are some of my Summer Favorites from last week's party.

Ahna from Hammers N Hugs shared her new mantel and some wonderful images and ideas with us on just How to Decorate with Fireplace Mantels. All are gorgeous!
