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.

Spring Has Definitely Sprung!

Good morning, friends. Happy Spring 2021! This is definitely a different one, but there is absolutely no reason we can't make it as special as we want to. I love all the ways you all have been adding Spring to your homes. I'm constantly inspired by you, thank you so much for that. Busy day, so I'm going to get right onto the party and your features. Keep us in your prayers this week, please... My Mum gets her vaccine today and I get mine tomorrow. I am so excited to have this behind us, and still so grateful that we are able to get them. Crossing my fingers that we both tolerate them well. Stay safe friends and be well. Here we go!

Happy Spring, Teddy and The TFT~

Good morning beautiful people! Welcome to this week's Thursday Favorite Things Party! We are so grateful for you and are so pleased that you are here sharing with us. Happy Daylight Savings Time! Are you all enjoying your extra hour of light? I'm, surprisingly, very happy about it, as it allows me extra time to take our littlest (my Mum's) and the newest member of our family, Teddy, to the park, even later! If you don't follow me on Instagram yet you probably haven't met Teddy yet, please let me share him with you!

More Incredible Spring DIY's and Inspirations

Good morning sweet friends.  What a wonderful day we had here yesterday! Rain, hail, thunder,  oh my! I loved every single minute of it!  I just love the sound of the rain falling, especially when I'm warm inside and baking.  We had just enough days of sun for me to go out and harvest some of my lemons and my neighbor's oranges.  Perfect zest for my scones.  Oh so yummy.  The days are getting longer and this weekend an hour longer still. Don't forget to turn your clocks forward! Let's celebrate what you all were sharing last week.  Here are your features.

Happy Thursday and the first week of March! I am so excited that you dropped by. As much as I am a Fall/Winter person, I am truly enjoying all the Spring inspiration you all are sharing. And, even though, I, too, am experiencing COVID fatigue, the rain in our future seems promising and exciting!   I hope you enjoy all of the inspiration you find at the party. We have the best bloggers and they are all so creative. Hope you like the features!

Goodbye February...I Will Miss You (This Week's TFT Party!)

Hello and welcome! Happy Thursday! Well, my friends, February is just about over. (insert sad face here). For those of you that had to deal with the cold weather, heavy snow, and blizzards, I am terribly sorry and certain you’re happy to see it go. However, for those of us in Northern California, we could use more rain, still, so I’m not quite ready for spring to get here just yet. That being said, I have to admit I'm loving the early blooms and blossoms I see dotting my little town, here and there. Thank you for sharing so much beauty and creativity, every single week. Here are just a few of the highlights from last week's party...

I Love Pam from Everyday Living's Winter Flower Therapy I am a firm believer in flower therapy and practice this same philosophy in my home.

I truly hope you like the features!

Inspiring Women!

Good morning, friends, and happy last week of January. Can you believe that? One month has already gone by of the new year. We are having a wonderful rainstorm here in Northern California! And I do mean wonderful! No doubt you’ve heard of the fires we’ve had the last several years, and this is a very welcome sight for most Californians, myself included. I am a true lover of fall and winter, with all their cool days, changing leaves, and the beautiful sound of rain and thunder. So it’s especially exciting for me. 

I am always so impressed and inspired by all the beautiful work you guys bring every week to this party. You make me feel lazy! LOL, I am still baking, cooking, and decorating, however, I haven’t been able to find the time to do the pictures necessary to write a post. I will get something up here soon. I promise.
 Meanwhile, let’s look at all the wonderful inspiration you brought to the party last week!

A New Day & This Week's TFT Party

Well, it is definitely a new day, a new era, even possibly. Regardless of where you stand, one chapter has ended and a new one has just begun and suddenly numerous quotes are popping into my view and speaking to my heart. So, I am CHOOSING to embrace them. It is definitely a choice that one must decide to make. 

"KINDNESS IS RADICAL. Where there is kindness


there is goodness. It is brave and daring, fearless and courageous." On this day,  after inauguration day, I thought this would be a good reminder today. (The last line is from my sister.)

Finding Some Peace & Inspiration When It's Not Easy

 Good morning, friends. I would love to be all light and fuzzy this morning, but alas, I cannot. Our country is going through so much divisiveness and so many struggles, not just with COVID and the pandemic rules, but with friends and family members with lost jobs, economic struggles for those that, thankfully, prior to this, have not had to experience a grocery line or wait and pray that they can get a food box. Then, there's what's going on in Washington... And, even though, I will not and do not want anyone to get political, here, it is a sad week... month... for American democracy. My prayers go out to all those living in fear when they go to work. I'm praying for our leaders and those in power to make good choices for the greater good of all Americans, And, while, possibly, we might disagree on what that may be, I think we can all agree on peace and kindness. That being said and acknowledged at this specific time in history, I will get on with the party and thank you all for being here and we will put out our positivity, by enabling others to make their corners of the world a little more beautiful, a little more tasty, and possibly even a little more enriched.

So, if you are cold and down and maybe a little overwhelmed pop over to Comfort Spring Station and print out one of Carol's adorable Valentine Gnomes! Carol shared her post"Top Posts of 2020" but I, honestly, could not see past this sweetheart.
