The Garden’s Coming Alive and the TFT Party

Good morning friends and welcome back. Before we get on with the party I just have to share!  If you’ve ever worked on growing a garden from seed from late January to Spring, you’ll understand my excitement and pride in sharing this photo with you all!

My first fruit of the season! This specific one is a Barry’s Crazy Cherry heirloom tomato and there are at least 20 more!
When they come in fully, they look like this!
Okay, now that I’ve shared my excitement, let’s look at some of what you shared last week.

Mid April 2023 ~ Thursday Favorite Things Link Up!

Hi friends! Welcome. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter with your families.  I had a nice, quiet Easter and enjoyed the peace and time to be grateful for the day and the gift from God, through His Son.  I have no theme or reason for these features, this week, simply a few that caught my eye! I’m busy hustling my seedlings and new starts in and out of doors and under and out from under their grow lights! Such an exciting time of year if you garden at all, and I garden A LOT! 
Here’s a few of your links from last week’s Thursday Favorite Things party! Please visit each other.

Let's Get Ready To Spring Forward!

Welcome friends!  Are you ready?! It's this weekend! We're Springing forward in the middle of an "atmospheric river" event! Supposedly, starting today and continuing through next week. You know, I still can't ever complain about the rain. First, I love it, and second, we have needed it SO BADLY for so long.   It's exciting to see our green grasses and rivers and lakes filling up again! Okay, back to today and the Thursday Favorite Things party! Always so exciting to join Katherine and all the other wonderful ladies to bring this party to you! Again, you didn't disappoint. 

Look at Shelley from Calypso In the Country's How to Decorate a Tiered Tray (for Tea Time Entertaining) was just too sweet to pass up. Especially, for this time of year!

Goodbye February…Already!

Welcome back for this week’s Thursday Favorite Things party! Can you believe next week is March, already?! Meanwhile, we’re bracing for a big storm the next several days. So many mixed emotions for me. I love rain and winter but I’m also super excited to get back into my garden. Let’s look at what you have been up to from last week’s party.

I Give up....Happy Valentine's Day Week!

Good morning friends and welcome back to the Thursday Favorite Things party! Well, as the title reads, "I Give Up!" I have decided to embrace all things Valentines because you guys are just too darn creative for me not to! I truly enjoyed all your wonderful links from last week's party. If you missed it, click here to see all the wonderful posts. I'm keeping busy with all my heirloom veggie starts these days and looking forward to Spring more than usual. It's amazing how simple little practices can change your whole perspective.  With that said, I hope you all enjoy a beautiful Valentine's week with those you love around you. Let's look at a few posts that caught my eye last week!

Happy February and Groundhog Day

Good morning and welcome friends!  Well, here we are, February already. And, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, so bundle up for six more weeks of winter.   What a weird month February is.  Just 28 days long (but sometimes 29 every four years, which is so random when you think about it) Nonetheless, it’s great to be alive! Grateful for each moment and grateful to have you all here with us for another week of the Thursday Favorite Things party. I’m busy baking and getting everything ready for my Spring garden, there’s actually a lot of work to be done far before planting time, but I’m enjoying and excited about it all! 

Let’s look at a couple post that stuck out to me from last week’s party.

Just like that… It’s February!

Hello and welcome back friends! Can you believe we are just 6 short days away from February 2023?!  My goodness, the older I get the faster it goes! Looks like you all are getting ready for Spring too! I have my seeds all germinated and starting off in the nice warm inside, just waiting and growing for the upcoming Season.  Well, friends, to be honest with you all, I don’t celebrate Valentine’s, but your beautiful offerings were too sweet for me not to share! Let’s take a quick look at a few of your posts shared from last week’s party. 

Amber from Follow the Yellow Brick Home shared a beautiful post with 14 HEART WREATHS TO LOVE, I especially liked this sweet heart from Lydi Out Loud.

Rains, Winds, Floods, Oh My!

Hey friends, just a quick hello and thank you.  I'm trying to keep everything I can fully charged, as we are in the midst of a historic weather system. Atmospheric Rivers, Bomb Cyclones, whatever you call it, there's a lot of water and a lot of people losing power.  Mine's already flicked on and off a couple of times! Yikes! Luckily, I'm safe and I think we will be okay. I'm going to wish you all a dry, warm week and thank you, once again, for joining us.  

Make sure to pop over and give Katherine some love.   Thankfully, Katherines Corner is Back
