My Friday Finds . . .

 photo FridayFinds_zpsb214ccd8.jpg

A few of the things I find each week which strike my fancy and I hope that they strike yours also!


Now this is handy. Todd calls me the Queen of Google.  I use it all the time to find stuff out.  It's replaced any type of dictionary in our home.  Tips to make my searches even more effective?  Great!


Printable Journaling Tags.  From Sweet Life.   I love free printables.


I can see this coming in handy for all sorts.   Christmas. Easter.  Birthdays.  Valentines.  Etc.   a Mini Tote Bag Treat Holder from Bibi Cameron.   There's a video.


From Ravelry. Crochet White Slipper Clogs.  You do have to purchase the pattern, but I think they are real sweet.


DIY Photo Pendants.  From Saving With Sarah, a complete tutorial.   Such a sweet idea.


How to make a Rag Rug.  Also a complete tutorial from Craftaholic's Anonymous.  A great page!


Easter Chick Cupcakes.  So sweet.  From  The Melrose Family.


A themed Easter Basket for your man.  Complete with pail which would come in handy for car washing et.   Filled with things like salted peanuts, beef jerky, etc.  What man wouldn't be thrilled!  From Jenny Collier.


CUTE CUTE!  Edible Easter Baskets.  These are adorable.  From Hip 2 Save.  I know some missionaries who might love these.


Easter Bunny Treats made from Water Bottles.  So so cute.  From Floating Around with Bubbles.   Wish I could get the pastel coloured M&M's.

Vanilla Cake with a Bunny Surprise.  Hmmm . . .  I could do this!  From Moje Wypieki.  Its in another language, but translatable.  It's so so so cute.


Bunny Tail Truffles.  From  Pizzazzerie.


Easter Table Decor from Miss Mustard Seed.   This is so classy.


 These little egg shell planters fo rEaster are so adorable.  From  We are Scout.


And finally, from Brigitte.  It's a PDF download, for these really sweet Easter Napkins.   To grace your Easter table.

And that is my finds for this week!  I hope you found something useful here!

Now  . . .  about yesterday.  The procedure went very well.  I was definitely out of it although I am sure I will never forget it and am due to have to repeat it in three to five years time.   I got to watch it all on a little tv screen and I was as high as a kite telling them how good vegetables and dip were and how to do them.  lol  (Wierd me, but there are probably worse things that I could have talked about.)  They removed three polyps.  Those will be sent away for testing.  Hopefully all are benign.  I will find our more come my appointment in May with the specialist.  I was there at 8 am, but didn't have the procedure until gone 10:30 and I was in having that until 11:30.  The trapped gas afterwards was truly wicked.  Poor Todd.  But it is all over now and I survived.  I said to them in the little operating theatre, this was never on my bucket list of things I wanted to do or experience, but having said that the only way to get through it was to get through it.

I do fascinate people with my accent however.  Which is strange because, I don't really think I have one! ;-)

I had a cheese sandwich and a yogurt and a glass of water afterwards and it was the best ever.  I was starving.  ☺  Bonus.

A thought to carry with you through today . . .

And I do too!


  1. Amazing I got straight through to your Friday blog this morning !?.i am so pleased that you got over everything yesterday. That was the same as my friend Pam they took three polyps from her as well,...the same as they did five years ago.....I was delighted to read that you are having a wee holiday to Cornwall. You and Todd deserve that so much. Pity you are not driving yourselves as then you could have stopped here....but we will get to meet one day I am sure...Mary and I are just going into Bath in about five minutes we must get in by nine so we can hopefully get a parking spot. It is a cold morning but the frost has lifted but a thick mist has come down now...hopefully it will clear as we drive into town....have a lovely day. I will pop back later to check out your great finds. Xxxx

  2. Marie I am glad that yesterday is done and dusted. It is not the most pleasant procedure but a life saving one. That gas and the shoulder pain are amazing. I would have loved to hear your recipes etc. I have never had a person be nasty under sedation....New Years Eve was always another story. Rest up today.

    I love the ideas you have shared today. I might have to make Pip one of those baskets as she loves her candy and sweets.

    Yesterday I had a gran adventure and bought another car for Pip and I to share. I was very good and resisted all the bells and whistles and pretty much stuck to my budget. On Monday I shall pick up the Jaffodill as Connor and Pip have named her,

    God bless.

  3. So glad you got through it, your experience sounds very like mine. I was quite fascinated to see inside my body like that. Take care xxx
    Ps we should meet for for coffee or something - I am only 7 miles away

  4. Sooo VERY, very glad all went well for you yesterday, Marie. Praying all is well, and those polyps benign. So glad it's all done. But sorry you have to still wait... But one big hurdle at a time, right? ;) BRAVE, wonderful you!! Marie the Google Queen--love that! And LOVE you!! :) Fun finds again, today... LOVE those little totes/baskets--nice, different idea for small giving. Those Easter chick cupcakes are just too adorable!! NICE idea that Man's Easter Basket. ;) Bunny tails!! Sooo many sweet Easter/spring ideas!! Be taking good care there... I'm sure you'll be glad to eat again now! Happy Weekend to you all there ((LOVE & BIG HUGS))

  5. I'm thankful that is over for you and won't have to be repeated for a long while now. I know your Friday will be a better day having it done and over.

  6. Fiou..glad that is over..:)

    Jacques flew through it also..:) So easy to say that when you are not the one living back to these:)
    If you find that bunny template from Mathew Mead let me know..I looked everywhere last year I think and one link led to another faulty even the year before..I was determined to print the menu on it..

    cute things Marie:)

    this year it is a dinner at my daughter's:)

  7. Glad you were able to get through today Sybil! It would be nice to meet for sure, but like you say we are not driving and must go along with the others! We WILL meet eventually, I have no doubt! Xoxo

    Me too Suzan! Will be happy when all is said and done! I feel rather silly thinking about my telling them recipes! But oh well! Your car sounds great! Love the name! Xoxo

    That would be great CG! We will have to make plans! Xoxo

    You are right Tracy, one hurdle at a time. I am very relieved to have that part behind me!i thought of TJ with the man basket/ bucket! Happy Weekend to you all as well! Xoxo

    You are so right there Pam! Thank So! Xoxo

    I could not find the link to download the templates either Monique, but I did find picture templates that could be printed! I am sure dinner at your daughters will be lovely! Xoxo

  8. So happy that you go through the procedure OK. It isn't my favoirite test either. I am do for one next year; but may have it this year since I am having a few tummy problems.
    I enjoyed all of your Easter finds. I really liked the Easter pail; I thought that was cute. I so like the crocheted clogs; I would love. Pair.
    I find Google is so fun because you can find so many things on it.
    Blessings, love and hugs for you dear friend~

  9. Thanks LeAnn! I had been really dreading it as you know. The worst part was the prep. I know I will have to have another one in three to five years and am already dreading that one, haha. Blessings, love and hugs for you as well dear friend. God bless you always! xoxo
