Summer Crafting and Decorating and TFT #398

Happy Thursday once again, and welcome to Thursday Favorite Things link party.

It’s been a bit of a scary week.  We learned that our sweet Sunny has failing kidneys.  She’s 13 1/2, so something like this isn’t unexpected, but still…  The good news is, our “old lady baby” doesn’t seem to know anything is wrong.  She is still mostly lively and definitely acting like herself, but she is tiring more easily.  Poor thing just had most of her remaining teeth pulled a few weeks ago, and now her kidneys. (Apparently, though, the kidney issues started a while back.)

So, as you can imagine, she is getting extra special doting from everyone.

But then, she’s always been pretty doted on…

Sunny really lives up to her name, and nothing seems to daunt her spirit. So we are staying cheerful too!

With my daughter in 2011

I chose party features from last week that are all about summer crafting and decorating.

Features from Last Week’s Party:

This beautiful sewing/craft space from Flamingo Toes is pretty much my dream room.  It’s an amazing, light filled, inspirational space.

If you are headed to the beach this summer, be sure to pick up lots of shells to make some of these seashell crafts from Grace for a Gypsy.

I love these summer pillow covers from Vintage Mama’s Cottage.  So bright and cheerful.

How about some pretty watercolor printables to add some summer to a room?  Julie from My Wee Abode has them for free for you.
