Anxiously Awaiting Fall ~ Autumn Inspirations (TFT Party)

Too hot to be at the computer much these days, friends. I am so anxiously awaiting my favorite Season. I was so pleased to see I am not alone in this, as evidenced by your Fall inspired link ups!  Thank you for that! Here are this week's features!

What I'm Loving in August ~ (TFT Party)

Hi friends! I sure hope you all are finding some way to stay cool, I'm doing my best but it sure isn't easy with these triple-digit days. Thank you all so much for your very kind comments last week. As they say, life does go on.  I just finished baking 15 dozen breakfast cookies for a function at my church, and to be honest with you, I'm quite okay not to bake for a little while now... In all honesty, I was thrilled and honored to get to contribute, I certainly am grateful though, that I baked them before the heatwave hit!  No special theme this week in the features, I just went through and grabbed the first ones that caught my eye. Not my usual, but really kind of fun! It truly is so difficult to limit the features with so much talent from you all.  So, without further delay, here are the ones I'm loving this week!

It's A Shabby Thursday! (This Week's TFT Party)

Good morning, sweet friends. Welcome back to this week's edition of the Thursday Favorite Things party. I'm so glad you're joining me. As I write this, I have just said goodnight to a very different kind of day. Today was the one year anniversary of my father's death. And while my mind and soul rejoice for him in Heaven, my heart and humanness still miss him.  So forgive me, I am not going to embellish too much this week. Thankfully, I have been looking at all your wonderful shabbiness all through the week and have plenty of inspiration from your talents. So, mums the word and unto your features.

Tastes of Summer! All the Recipes You Need to Enjoy Your Summer (This week's TFT)

It seems we all love to share some of our favorite recipes, as each season comes and goes. I am no exception to that thought. I love welcoming each different season with my favorites for that time, as well. As I am definitely a Fall/Winter person, I get so excited that I start baking fall dishes at the end of the summer as I anxiously await my favorite season. Case and point last week I shared my Grandmother's Canadian Butter Tarts! You can find them, here!

I'm just counting down the days when I can have my oven on more, without it making the temperature in the house intolerable. Until then, you have all provided me with some wonderful summer recipes to get me through. Thanks for that! Let's take a look!
