A few of the things that I find each week that strike my fancy.  I hope that they strikes yours too!


Don't you just love LOVE this pompom tutu!  I do.  Found on Mood Kids.   If I was thin, I would make one for myself!


From Nordstrum, red shoes that I could wear.   Not available, no money, but a gal can dream can't she!


What a great idea for a Birthday morning surprise!  Just wait til Todd's birthday!  I am so going to do this!  He will love, LOVE it!  Found on saar manche.

DIY Floral Party Hats.  I love these.  They are so SO pretty.  From Oh Happy Day.


From Sherelle Christensen, Maw Maw's Sweet Refrigerator Pickles.   These look mighty good.


DIY Freezer Waffles.  From Attainable Sustainable.  I found some freezer waffles in the grocery shops yesterday.  They were in the dessert section. Birdseye . . .  and in two flavours, plain and cinnamon.  Much better to  make your own.


From Etsy, an instant download pdf pattern for these sweet embroidered tea towels.   Country Garden.  What a cute shop!

Just  look at this sweet Yo Yo Crib Quilt and the trim on this pillow case!  Isn't it just too adorable!  From a cute little book from Red Brolly.   Little Chicken Feather Book.

DIY Crochet Coasters.  So pretty.  Daisy Cottage Designs.  30 patterns alltogether.

Seatbelt Travel Pillow.  With Holiday season coming up, this could come in very handy!  From House For Five. 

Knitting Techniques and Tips from the Icelandic Knitter.


 101 Days of Organization Tips to reduce the dust in your house.  I hate dust.


The one a day rule for keeping a clean home.  From Double the Batch


Pocket Notebooks from The Hybrid Chick.  These are nice. 


Box in a Bag from The Scrappy Life.  I love it!

And that's it for this week.  I hope you found something useful here!


This makes me happy.  When my art makes someone else happy.  Adorable.

A thought to carry with you through today . . .

And I do too!


  1. Good morning Marie. I love today's find and itch to find the time to do some! At present I am sitting in a community theatre so Pip can audition for "Joseph and His Technicolour Dreamcoat". Another long autumn of rehearsals could lie ahead. But this time it is all closer to home.

    A sad tale from my day....For the first time in years I have had to frog my knitting. My baby coat is back to a long strand....not so happy but will survive.

    I am also off to look at the honey cake recipe.

    God bless your day.

  2. I wish Pip goodluck on her audition Suzan! Sorry about your knitting. I know how frustrating that must feel! Love and hugs and blessings to you also. xoxo

  3. I am still here. There is quite a delay and the building is stuffy... She doesn't seem comfortable. Don't know if it is a good sign or not.

  4. Oh whoops....the red brolly book will be winging its way to joins some other red brolly stuff at home. Looking forward to it.

  5. Well, Suzan, what will be will be. Oh, how I wish I could get the red brolly book! Lucky you! xoxo

  6. Now I see you in those adorable red shoes..tutu..headband..hanging up a balloon curtain..cute cute cute ideas:) And that face w/ the card♥

  7. haha, thanks Monique! I know about the art and wee Mei Li! I did not know what she looked like when I did the art, but it was uncanny the resemblance! I loved seeing her with it! xoxo

  8. Late getting in today again !!...never mind here I am..what a lovely photograph that is of Mei lil...and her lovely card...( our church worker has a daughter now 14 that she and her husband adopted when she was just six months old, they lived in New Zealand at that time and had to go to China to collect her, she has been such a blessing to Helen and Frank) As always I love your ..finds...I have always loved red shoes I remember being delighted to have my leg off as it meant that at last I could have a pair of red shoes...and I did !...I still love red shoes but never find pairs that would fit these days..but we can always dream can't we.....Would love to see Todds face on his birthday if you do the balloon doorway !.....hope you are looking forward to a lovely weekend, forecast looks set for some warmer days. Xxx

  9. Hi Marie~

    Oh my goodness, so many lovelies to look at today! I really can't wait to make that cute headband, I have a few little's that would love it! and the embroidery tea towels are too cute, I will definitely download that pattern. Sherelle lives just a few miles from me, I know her family well! She has wonderful recipes!

    Your artwork is just beautiful, how could it not put a smile on someone's face?!

    Have a wonderful, inspired week-end!

    Hugs and Love,

  10. I am just grateful that you visit Sybil! I had a pair of red shoes once upon a time. I was much younger then. I had a beautiful denim dress with a red leather belt and I used to wear these lovely red leather flats with it. Not sure what happened to any of that stuff now. Mind you I was also a lot thinner then so I would not be able to get near any of it anyways! lol I hear we are in for a mini heat wave! We shall see! Happy weekend! xoxo

    Thanks Barb! I will have to look for Sherelle's recipes! I hope that you have a lovely and inspired weekend also! Conference weekends are my favourite weekends of all! Hugs and love! xoxo

  11. Oh, my gosh you have so many fun finds. I too love the red shoes. Nordstrom shoes are expensive. I love all of them photos of the finds. I really like the handiwork; but there isn't as much of it in today's world. I remember embroidering pillow cases for my hope chest so many years ago. I really love the Birthay ball one decoration; it is a fantastic idea. I will want to do that one for my hubby too.
    Well, I will have fun going on a few of these links. I did look at the ideas for helping with dust. My house is always so dusty. I will have to try some of the ideas.
    Blessings, love and hugs for you~

  12. I think most shoes are expensive nowadays LeAnn! I have two pairs. One for every day and one for church! I did embroidery for my hope chest also. Do girls even have hopechests nowadays? I hate dust also. We have a black glass tv stand that you can dust and two minutes later looks like you never touched it! I hate it! One of the husband's purchases! Love and hugs to you also! oxox
