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!
Is it too early to think about making Christmas Decorations/crafts? I don't think so! Found on Design Dazzle a complete tutorial on how to make these adorable snowmen. By Monica of The White Bench.
Glass Jar Snowmen. This is just the lid for one jar. A D O R A B L E !! There is a video tutorial on Joggles. So cute!
No instructions or source, but it looks like they have used mini bundt tins to freeze water in to use as votive holders. Wouldn't this be a beautiful way to line the pathway into your home for a special party during the holidays? Lovely.
How to make a teacup candle. I have one of those a good friend gave me. I love it. This is totally sweet and they look really easy to make. Found on Homemade Crap. Novel name. Obviously the author has a unique sense of humor.
Again no source, but I really love these pillows. I am crazy about white pillow slips anyways, and the addition of lace and ties is really beautiful here. I love, LOVE them! Don't you?
These are probably more within the realm of my expertise however. From At Home On The Bay, a delightful complete tutorial on how to do your own lace trimmed pillow slips. I love the bright colours!
DIY Spray Painted Lace Lamp Shade! Paint the lamp shade- yellow first, then wrap the lace around and spray it blue/gray. Remove the lace..and this is what you get! beautiful. I love it. Found on Stay At Home Artist.
DIY Collar Necklace Ideas. There is a complete tutorial on Style Hive. I think it's very pretty and what a unique idea!
Oh how I wish I had nice ankles and slender feet, because I just adore this idea for shoes. Found on Stars for Streetlights. That is one pretty saavy lady. She does all sorts. These button shoes though . . . I adore buttons and these are just so sweet!
Sigh . . . just throwing these in for your viewing pleasure. Can you imagine these in red? Double sigh . . . I love the stockings too.
Speaking of red . . . sigh, from Lauren Conrad. I think you can buy them here. Of course they are way out of our budgets, but a gal can dream. While I am at it I will dream about having calves trim enough to wear a pair of these as well.
These leg warmers/button up socks from Three Bird Nest are so sweet. It's getting to that time of year when every little bit of layering helps. I have had to put the heaters on in the bathroom and Ariana's bedroom, as she just finds it too cold. I suppose there is a shockingly big difference between here and the South of Spain.
And that's my finds for this week. Sorry I went off on a bit of a tangent with the footwear/leg things. But they were just so adorable and I had to share!
A thought to carry with you through today . . .
