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!
This is a brilliant idea for turning a glass container into a pretty candle holder. No link, but the photos are pretty self explanatory. Just make sure you apply the tissue paper punch outs on the OUTSIDE of the container as putting them inside might cause a fire as I believe it would be highly flammable! It's very pretty though!
I am loving this holiday collage display thingie. What a beautiful and unique way to commemorate the holidays and save some precious holiday memories. Found on Lilikoi Joy. There is a complete tutorial.
Again, no source, but what a simple and yet very pretty way to decorate a shelf or mantle for the holidays. I think I have some letters/alphabets upstairs. I love this.
From Mice Chat, a Disney Inspired holiday ornament. I love it. Such a simple idea!
What a brilliant idea these candy sleighs are! Why oh why do my grandchildren have to live so very far away! I would love to make these for them! Found on Joybobo. Simple and easy to make.
I love this simple and yet elegant door wreath decoration. It's really nice. From Our Unexpected Journey. Complete tutorial. I think it's quite brilliant!
Another brilliant idea. Dip Mix Ornaments that you can just mix with sour cream to make a tasty dip. What an innovative and unsual idea. I love it. I wonder where you could buy the empty glass ornaments like this? From Bubbly Nature Creations.
I love these little terra cotta flower pot snowmen designed by my friend Amanda Formaro. You can find the instructions on Craft Town. I think they are just brilliant. So cute!
Gingerbread Play Dough! It's fabulous! What a great thing to make to keep the kids busy and I am sure it smells gorgeous!! Found on Housing a Forest. That blog is brilliant. It's just loaded with fabulous ideas. Make sure you check it out!
Ten magical ways to use mason jars in decorating for the holidays, from Women's Day. I always loved buying the Women's Day and Family Circle Magazines through the years. I haven't seen one in years and years now. I am sure they do have a British equivalent here in the UK . . . but I don't have a family here so . . . the Tutorial for this is actually at Deco Art and is so easy to do. A jar, epsom salts, blue and a piece of jute twine and christmas greenery. Simples!!
And those are my Friday Finds for this week. I hope you found something useful. I know it was a very Holiday type of post, but the holidays are upon us!
Look what my son Doug cooked for his family last night. It's Swiss Steak that he made using my recipe from my Big Blue Binder Cookbook that I wrote. I think he did a super job! All my sons like to cook and they are good cooks. I love it! I told him he should have a food blog.
A thought to carry with you through today . . .
"A friend is one that knows you as you are,
understands where you have been,
accepts what you have become,
and still gently allows you to grow."
Cooking in The English Kitchen today . . . Chicken Fillets with a Lemon and Caper Sauce. Seriously delicious! You will love this! It's quick and simple!
