Summer Eats!

 Welcome friends! Can you believe how absolutely fast this month has gone?! We are already heading into August in just 8 short days! I pray that you are all safe from the fires and the extreme heat. As of this date, we are, here, in my section of Northern California, still safe from the huge fires further up north. Praising God and ever so thankful. Praying for the thousands going through them this year. That has not been the case many previous years. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thank you for sharing your beautiful links with me. 

This week’s features are…

The Painted Apron’s Summer Peach Pizza with Prosciutto, Burrata & Basil

This and That~ Thursdays Favorite Things

 Good morning friends! Welcome to this week's party. Thank you all for joining me here each week and leaving all your kind comments and wonderful inspirations. I enjoy each and everyone more than I will ever be able to tell you. I pray you are enjoying a safe, and hopefully not too hot, summer season. I was all over the place this week, hence the This and That theme for this week's party.

It's All About Yummy Summer Foods! (TFT Party)

Good morning, sweet friends! Bam just like that we're already into July. I hope you all had a great/safe fourth of July weekend.  For those of you who know me well, this makes me super excited because we are just inching that much closer to Autumn/Fall! Yippee! For my sun-worshipping friends, enjoy! I'm counting the days! So many wonderful summer recipes last week! Therefore, here are this week's features:

Good morning.  Welcome friends! Happy July 1st! Thank you for being here.  Yes, it's truly July... Wishing you all a safe and sound Fourth of July weekend, here in the USA, and for all of my friends and family in Canada, I hope you had a wonderful Canada Day!
Do you have exciting plans to celebrate this Independence Day?! I'm enjoying our unseasonably low temperatures this week. I'm sure it won't last but I'm celebrating every single day while it does. Here are a small sampling of the wonderful posts from last week's party.

Whoops! I'm Running Late...Happy Summer~💛

 Friends, please forgive me! I'm running behind! Yesterday was 93+ degrees and I think it zonked my brain. I will get back with your features, I promise, but for now, please link up for this week's Thursday Favorite Things party! Summer may be three days away but you sure couldn't tell here. Since it is so close,  Happy Summer!

I must admit I'm awfully excited for Farmer's market again!

Time To Dine Outside!

Welcome friends. It is that wonderful time of year where we can once again enjoy our yards and all the beauty they have to offer. So I chose a couple of features from last weeks party that embraced the outside and the beauty that is easily added if you have the right pieces on hand. Yet, we need not be so elaborate to enjoy eating out! A beautiful floral tablecloth and some blooms from your garden will suffice. 
Although, Lori from Dining Delight’s gorgeous and inviting Lilacs and Butterflies Tea Party for Two is awfully tempting.

Happy June!

Happy Thursday and Happy June, my friends! a brand new month in front of us, I hope you all are well and enjoying the "unofficial" start to Summer. I'm dreading the heat but excited for all else the Summer has to offer. It appears you are all preparing your home and your kitchens, too. Thank you all for joining us here.  Let's see some of the highlights from last week! 

Claire Justine's Lemon Elderflower Cheesecake looked absolutely heavenly.

May's Last Hurrah!

Mason Jar Crafts, gorgeous Citrus Tablescapes, Yummy Blueberry Recipes... what’s not to love about this week’s TFT party?! Absolutely nothing! I love them all!  Welcome back to the Thursday Favorite Thing party. I’m so glad you are here. Can you believe there are only 4 days left 'til June? Only 24 until Summer! Eeks! I know some of you are counting the days, I, myself, am trying to hold onto every last day of Spring, before those really hot Summer days arrive. Oh well, maybe this Summer will surprise me! Happy Spring, friends. :) Here we go!

Did you see Barbara from Mantel and Tables post How To Set a Spectacular Citrus Table?? So absolutely gorgeous!

Springing into Summer! (This Week’s TFT Party)

Good morning and Happy Thursday! I am so happy you are here! What a great day for Thursday Favorite Things, right? 

This week I'm actually sharing a new post with you, too!! Yes, it's true! LOL, It has taken me a while, but you have all inspired me so much! If you have a chance check out my recipe share with you for some yummy Depression Era Potato Rolls. They are divine. Now, on to your wonderful Features from last week's party. If you missed it, be sure and click Here to see all the beauty shared.

Delicious Depression-Era Potato Rolls

 If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I love to bake. The problem is...I've been so busy baking and sharing, I keep forgetting to take photos to share all the yumminess with you all! It may only matter to me and a few others, but I  simply will not post a recipe if I can not show you the steps.  Because I firmly believe,  more often than not, the "How" of a recipe is just as important, if not more, than the "What" to baking.   I think I have baked more in the last year than ever before. I’m so grateful that I have this particular gift, it has made me happy and feel useful in a time where that isn't always easy to do.  That brings me to the recipe I am sharing with you today. It's a wonderful old, and I do mean old, 1930, to be exact, depression-era recipe for Potato Rolls or Buns whichever your preference.

Our Favorite Things This May!

Hello friends. Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things! I'm so grateful you are here. Gosh, you all are booking right along with so much creativity and inspiration. I really can't get over it.  If I had the time, you would all be featured! It's like splitting hairs for me to try and pick just a few of your posts to highlight but I did my best. Thank you all for each and every one of your comments.  Please know I appreciate and read every single one with joy in my heart, even if I can't respond at the time.  Thank you! With that, we're off to a new week and another party. Enjoy.

National day of Prayer, May Love & the TFT Party

Welcome friends! I hope "merry is the month of May" is true for you, and continues to exceed your expectations!  Today is the National Day of Prayer. I'm praying for us all.  I hope you will too. 
Does anyone else find it odd that in the Winter months we turn our heater up all the time and, yet, in the Summer months we keep the house open at night to try and get the temperature down to at least 10 degrees cooler than what we just liked a couple months before??
C'est la vie!
Enjoy the party!
Here are some highlights from last week's party!

Thursday's Favorite Things Spring Edition


Good morning, sweet friends! I hope you all are having a wonderful week. I know some of you are still living with rain and cool temps, can I just say I'm jealous.  I guess you always want what you don't have. 80's here several days in the past week and I'm not ready! Although, I must admit I do love the roses in bloom and seeing the dormant garden come to life once again. 


This time of year is always a mixed blessing for me, being a fall/winter enthusiast.  You all are surely sharing the beauty of the Season and I'm grateful for you.  Happy TFT party time! Time for a new week and new inspirations. First, here are a few of your beautiful shares from last week's party.  


Gingham and Buffalo Check Home Decor from Calypso in the Country feels so inviting!
