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!
9 Yard Sale Do's and Don'ts for Yard Sale Success from No Biggie. That is something that I have never seen over here. A yard sale. I don't know why. They do car boot sales, on Sunday's, so I have never been to one of those either. Maybe there is some sort of bylaw against selling from your yard? I don't know! I love a good Yard Sale.
How to take three Ikea bookcase units and turn them into what looks like a great built in space. I love this idea! From Domestically Speaking.
I just love these paper Butterfly Magnets. They're so pretty! From Modge Podge Rocks.
I thought this looked like a great draft dodger, but on the blog it looks like a toy. It would make a great and pretty colourful draft dodger and also a great way to use up any fabric scraps. Found on Katjushik. It's in Russian, but there is a printable pattern and if you know how to sew at all it wouldn't be too hard to figure out.
Turn Wine Glasses into Lamps. Simples. From Everyday Celebrating.
This child's apron is really cute and easy to make. It uses a pot holder and a tea towel. From Flexible Dreams.
At Your Service. Napkin Folding. Very clever.
I love, LOVE these days of the week tea towels. From Bee in My Bonnet. They're so cute. There are also some really cute jar wraps on the same page.
Stamped Paint Chip Bookmarks. Such a simple idea and they are quite lovely! I could not find a source.
I couldn't resist showing you these beautiful bookmarks made from ribbons and earrings. They are just gorgeous. From Country Living, 23 Practically Free Crafts.
And those are my finds for this week. I hope there was something here that clicked for you!
I have decided I am going to do a series of little angels. I did two yesterday and I quite like them.
First there is Hope. I love her string of stars and I found the quote online. It is from unknown. I loved the sentiment.
Then there is Joy. I love her bunting string, "Get Your Happy On." I think they would make really cute figurines or dolls. What do you think?
A thought to carry with you through today . . .
The ordinary arts we practice every day at home
are of more iportance to the soul
than their simplicity might suggest.
The recipe I am sharing in The English Kitchen today is a Creamy Cheddar Salad Dressing. Delicious!
Have a wonderful Friday. Hasn't this week just flown by??
Don't forget . . .
