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!


 Now this is really useful.   Taking two flat sheets (in co-ordinating colours) and turn them into a Custom Duvet Cover.   From Designer Trapped in a Lawyer's Body.

Ten habits of people with organized houses.   Love, LOVE this!  from The Inspired Room.

The easiest way to make a Silhouette.  I've always wanted to do that.   From Rain on a Tin Roof.

10 Rule of thumb measurements for decorating your home.  This could come in very handy I think.   From Driven by Decor.

16 Awesome Kid Made Mother's Day Gifts.   Something fun to do with the grandkiddies?  Perhaps!  From From Play Dough to Plato.   Love the names people give their blogs!

I love, LOVE this beautiful lacy throw.  Perfect for just throwing over your legs on those cooler summer days.   From the people at BHG.

 Your guide to growing herbs.   Also from the people at BHG.

 11 Painting Activies for Preschoolers.  I am thinking that a few regular schoolers would enjoy these as well.  From The Artful Parent.

From Indulgy.   Free Printables.  You could use these for all sorts of things.

No instructions, quite simpmly some eye candy.   I love this.  It's so pretty.  The whole page is pretty.   From Elizabetta.  Some pages are just beautiful.

And that's it for this week.  I do hope that you were able to find something useful!

A thought to carry with you through the day . . .

and splendid
than mere kindness.
