Friday Finds . . .
A few of the wow moments, or things I discover each week that tickle my fancy. I hope that they may inspire or tickle yours too!
These painted furniture pieces are gorgeous. There are two more besides this chair. I have always wanted to be brave enough to repaint an old chair. I just love this. From Domaine Home.
I love, LOVE this paper lantern. I think it is unusual and quite beautiful. You can find out more here, on Rebbeca's DIY. Know what I think would be really nice done as this. The Eiffle Tower or the Statue of Liberty . . . Big Ben!
I just A-D-O-R-E this fairy garden from Aidie's Hideaway! You need to go and look at the other pictures. I am so going to do this next year! It's just beautiful and such a fab idea! You all know how much I love anything to do with fairies! So cute!
This is a brilliant idea for holding head bands (or Alice bands as they are called over here in the UK) and hair clips. It's like a toilet roll holder except on a smaller scale! I love it. Found on Hello Kirsti. Quite simply brilliant and so cute!
Make it yourself Mod Podge. This stuff is so expensive, but I love it. It's nice to know you can make your own a bit cheaper. Found on Do It Yourself Divas. Simple!
Now this is absolutely BRILLIANT! Hidden Storage Books from Sewing Barefoot. You can use this to hide a router or any other must have but unsightly haves! There is a complete Tutorial!
How to turn flat sheets into curtains the easy way. From Welcome to Heardmont. It's a complete tutorial. I have a lot of full size sheets left from when we had the double bed. No double beds here anymore. Just twins. I've been telling myself for months that I am going to do something with the sheets. Now I have no excuse not to!
I just love LOVE this idea. Family Yearbooks. There is a complete tutorial on how to do just that with your collected photos each year. I have all mine collected in a folder on the computer, but it would be nice to have hard copies of them all. Found on cre8d design. Totally brilliant. (I can hear Todd now . . . More books! UGH!)
You know when someone is having a huge birthday and someone covers their lawn with pink flamingos? Well, now you can make pink flamingo straws for the birthday party! Very simple to do too. Found on Fete Gazette. So cute!
How to make your own Ricotta Cheese. Found on Kitchn. It's so simple to do too. I am so going to do this!!! Ricotta Cheese is expensive to buy and sometimes hard to find. Now I can make my own. Simple.
And that's it for this week. I hope that you found something useful amongst all of these goodies. I know I sure did!
A thought to carry with you through today . . .

In The English Kitchen today . . . how to build the perfect Turkey Sub. I am waxing nostalgic on SubWay and making my own.

Have a perfectly wonderful Friday everyone! Hasn't the week just flown by? Far too quickly in my opinion.
PS - Meant to tell you I called the Doctors again yesterday and still no results on the thumb! I am starting to get very annoyed!
