My Friday Finds . . .

A few of the things I discover each week which make me smile or inspire me.  I hope that you will be inspired also, to think, create, become a better you!

No source for this, but the photos are pretty self explanatory.  I have often admired the wreaths that I see which are like this, now I know how to make one for myself.  Who knew it was so easy?


Cute little walnut bears from Red Ted Art.  Love them!  They're so cute!


Dory & Nemo Hats to crochet.  These are so cute!  Found on mnopxs2.  Free pattern.   But if you go to Lavender Chair, there are links to ten different cutie pie hats to crochet.


How to make a Pinata Cake.  What a super idea!  Found on  In The Playroom. 


Make your own Dog Chew Toy.  The Crafty Blog Stalker.


This is good to know.  I think I knew  most of them anyways.  We love our furry family members and want to keep them safe always.  From  Proud Dog Mom.


10 easy steps to take towards Self Reliance.   From Atainable Sustainable.


Good to know  . . .

How to grow a beautiful Daisy Garden.  I love daisies.  From Over The Moon.


Six ways to attract birds and butterlies in to your garden.  From the people at Country Living.


From Decor Steals.   Now this is a fab idea. Using two hanging baskets to build a topiary.  Plant with Ivy.  This would work indoord as well. Although, my mom always said that ivy in a house was bad luck.


From Buzz Feed and Anna Altman.  The three minute Arm Workout.  I could really use this!   There are beginner, intermediate and advanced workouts.   I'm a beginner for sure.


Another kind of workout  . . . . time for a break . . .  now  breathe, one, two three

And back to our original programming . . .


I absolutely love, LOVE this idea.   From Shelterness, and there are a lot of other ideas there as well.


Morning check list to get your day off to a good start.  I'd only add one other thing.  Pray.

30 Day Minimalism Challenge.  From Into Mind.  (Its sad in a way that these sound like good things to do.  Just goes to show how much technology impinges on life.)

And I will end with a picture thought . . .


And those are my finds for this week.  I hope there was something here to inspire you!   A little bit of this and a little bit of that.

I hope you have a fabulous Friday!! Don't forget . . .

 And I do too!



  1. Good morning Marie. I have had a busy day with a visit to the practice nurse for my six monthly care plan review and then a visit to the doctor as well. I also did a little shopping and was so humiliated by a cashier that I reported her to the head office of the company. I have also watered the garden and parts of it require hauling buckets. I am ready for bed at is four thirty in the afternoon.

    The big news is I have paid for my next trip. Brisbane to Shanghai on the Queen Mary. I am looking into travelling onto Japan and spending a week there since I am going so far.

    God bless your day. I am so excited that I haven't paid too much attention to you post but I have a few pages to print and use I think.

    Lots of love to everyone,

  8. I really enjoyed these finds. I like several of them and hope to have a minute or two on P-day to browse through them.
    I can say that I might be able to actually make the Christmas Wreath; so cute. The hats of course are adorable. I like the idea of the Pinata Cake.
    Thank you for the link for making Dog toys and for what human foods our precious pets can eat.
    I alwys like storage ideas for self reliance. I want a Daisy garden now; next years goal. I wanted to have a bird feeder this year but it hasn't happened yet, we are just too busy.
    Loved the 3 minute arm exercises and the the picture below too. I love your humor so much; this brought a chuckle.
    Thanks for the fun today,Marie. Sending love and hugs your way!

  9. Thanks LeAnn! I am so happy that you have found some of my finds useful! Also the little laugh I interjected. Sometimes you just need to smile. There has been so much bad news lately a bit of what makes you giggle does the heart good! xoxo


Your comments mean the world to me, and while I may not be able to address each one individually, each one is important to me and each one counts. Thanks so much!
