TFT Features- Joy In Simple Things

Welcome back to TFT.
Thank you for the kind comments and messages last week.
I know. That sounds so generic. Right?
I read them. A few times in fact. I smiled.
In the least generic ways, I do thank all of you.
I just didn’t have words to respond at the time, but they will come.
They always do.

For now, I’m still working on finding joy in simple things.
This week’s features are a random selection that spoke to me.
Whether it was the words, pretty photos, colors, or things like Snapchat that amuse me.

I will get back to normal soon and chose features based on similarity of topics.
I’m really looking forward to seeing some fall decor posts and featuring those.
Hook it up my friends.
I’m already pulling out my white pumpkins and some that are mercury glass around my home.
A few arrangements of fresh flowers and some of those amazing velvet stuffed pumpkins are already gracing a few spots.

Let’s get to the TFT features!

Rosemary and Thyme shared a beautiful post about solitude and nature that really resonated with me. I do a lot of walking in the woods and in nature. Of course, I love her pretty blue and white tablescape  and all the little pretties she used to style this serene setting.

A simple little pleasure I found in last week’s link party was this darling little handmade fox bag created by Lynda at Lynda Creates.
If you didn’t know, I’m an obsessed dog lover.
And foxes, well, they are like distant cousins to dogs, cute and fluffy with intense soulful eyes.
Just look at that little face! Tell me those round little eyes aren’t saying take me
home with you or to school or to the beach…. or somewhere.
Total sucker right here! * Points to self. lol

I also have a FB group page for dog lovers.
You’re invited to join this growing community too.

Did you know that Snapchat is all the new rage among creatives, bloggers, and business owners?
It’s not just for sneaky teenagers that are up to no-good.

Snapchat is a fun platform and a great way to promote yourself and share your personality.
On occasion, I post Craigslist rants.
Some of the local posts I find blows my mind.
I can’t help it.

I just have so many jokes and I can’t keep them all inside.
You might have to follow me on Snapchat for a laugh or two.

Feuza (pronounced Fuse-ah) at Get Found With Fuse shared her tips on
how to use Snapchat for your business and blog.
