Thursday Favorite Things #368

I'm so glad it's Thursday, because that means it's time for another Thursday Favorite Things (TFT) link party.  The holiday season is always my favorite time to see the festive ideas that are shared at your blogs.

Have you been enjoying the little things?  I've been watching Christmas movies while I drink hot cocoa every evening.  It's one of my personal traditions. Simple and silly, but I look forward to it!

Don't forget to click back to last week's party to see what you might have missed.

Here are my features from last week:


What better way to remember National Cookie Day (which, unbelievably, I missed!), than with a roundup of  holiday cookie recipes from The Painted Apron.



A Tour of The Fabulous Fox Theatre in St. Louis, Missouri

This post contains affiliate links.

My husband and I have a fascination with the Fox Theatre  ("Fabulous Fox Theatre") in St. Louis. It's a former movie palace that is now a magnificent performing arts center.  They have live touring Broadway shows, concerts, and comedians.  If you ever visit, I'm sure you will have a fascination with it too!

We took the tour this past Saturday (again.)  One of these days, we're going to take the tour on a day that there isn't a performance, so that we can also see the backstage area. (There is a graffitti wall there with signatures from the stars that have performed in the shows.)  But, even though we couldn't see that area this time, the tour was fantastic, and the time flew by.

It's an amazing place.  And yes, so fabulous. It opened in 1929 and was meticulously restored in 1982.  It's always gorgeous, and even more so when decorated for the Christmas holidays.  It has an identical twin theater in Detroit, Michigan.

(The lens that I took most of these photos with is currently on sale at Adorama.com, plus a free accessory bundle. Info at the bottom of the post.)

The columns look like marble, don't they?  We learned on the tour that everything is an illusion. The columns are actually plaster!


Calm and Vintage Christmas at TFT #367

Hello, and welcome to another Thursday Favorite Things! (TFT)  I'm glad you've joined us, and I can't wait to see what you have to share with us today. 

Although the photographer's pictures from my daughter's wedding are in, I don't have any of them yet, so I'm happy to share this snapshot (captured by the groom!) of my daughter on her wedding day. I just love how happy and relaxed she looks here. (The wedding was over!)

This snapshot, taken by the groom, is one of my favorites of the day.

Now, on with Thursday Favorite Things.

Here are my features from last week's party:


Some ideas from Michele at Hello Lovely to ease the holiday overwhelm A soothing, beautiful post.


Getting the Holidays started and TFT Party

It's Thursday and time for another fun TFT party.  I've been in a bit of a wedding haze here over the last couple of weeks, having just enjoyed my daughter's wedding and reception(s.)  We had so much fun, and in between, we squeezed in a fun Thanksgiving too!  My daughter was a radiant bride, and she's happily settling into married life.  What a whirlwind it's been!

I'm glad to be back in TFT party mood and anxious to see what you have to share.  Please remember to pin from the original blogs, and please leave a comment with your link number.  (Features are often chosen from the comments.)  Each co-hostess chooses their own features, so you have 9 opportunities to be featured.

Here are my features from last week's party:


I love this roundup of  hot cocoa bars featured at Kippi at Home.  I'm inspired to do this now!


Thursday Favorite Things #365

I'm glad you're here for another Thursday Favorite Things!  It's currently dumping snow here, and it looks like it will be a lot.  I'm glad I stocked up on snacks and hot cocoa. How are things where you are?


TFT #364

Welcome back to another Thursday Favorite Things!   I've been resting a little bit this week, following my daughter's wedding last Saturday.  It was a private ceremony, with just family, and it couldn't have been more beautiful!

Just two features today, as I'm a bit behind and still in wedding recovery mode. I'm looking forward to seeing what you have for us today.  Don't forget to click back to last week's party to see what you might have missed.

Although I haven't been making much time for it lately, I really love stamping crafts and card making. Here is a lovely fall card with embossed leaves from Paper Seedlings.  I agree, the leaves look qu "antique-y."



Fall Treats and Decor at Thursday Favorite Things #363

Welcome to another Thursday Favorite Things(TFT!)  I am only half here today, as my daughter is getting married this weekend, and that has me a little distracted... (And very excited!)

I'm glad you're here, and I'm looking forward to all that will be shared here.

I love this beautiful fall garden pumpkin cake from My Recipe Treasures.  I'm not sure I can make it look this pretty, but I want to try.  I picked up some good cake decorating tips here too.
