A simple and very pretty table decoration from Lemonade Making Mama.  I love ethis.  You could use red and green candles if you wanted to, or just one colour.  I think it's sweet and very classy.

And there you have it, my Friday Finds for this week.  I hope that you found some inspiration here.  I know I certainly did!  (I can't believe how quickly Friday came around this week!)

A thought to carry with you through today . . .

When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
 of grief.
I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light.
For a time 
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

~Wendell Berry, The Peace of Wild Things

And I do too!


  1. Good morning Marie,

    It is so stinking hot here. I loved the look of the ice luminere and the ballet girls.

    Enjoy your day. God bless you and bring you serenity.


  2. Not very warm here Suzan. They say we are in for a very cold weekend. There may even be snow on the high ground before the weekend is through! God bless you also! xoxo

  3. Such a difference. It has been hotter in other parts of OZ today. It was more than hot enough for me here. Stay warm and safe.

  4. Hi, Marie! FUN festivity here today! LOVE those frozen luminaries! And those paper napkin ballerinas...*swoon*... I would have made those as child. I might do now! ;o) The Wendell Berry quote is perfect for right now... Wishing you all a lovely, peaceful weekend now... ((LOVE & BIG HUGS))

  5. I'm off to check out the sausage and potato goulash. Hope you have a fantastic Friday !
