My Friday Finds . . .

  photo FridayFinds_zpsb214ccd8.jpg

A few of the things I find each week which pique my curiosity or inspire me to want to do something, create something, cook something, or become a better person! I hope they will pique your curiosity or inspire you in some way as well!


A sweet little yarn wreath Christmas Decoration from A Pretty Life in the Suburbs.  So simple! 


A DIY How to make Brownies in a Cup Mug.  What a great gift for the brownie afficionado this would be! I cannot find the source.  But a sharpie and a large white mug is all you need.


Personalized clear Christmas ornaments.  What a super idea.  From  Time with Thea.

Beaded Holiday Necklace, from The 36th Avenue.  So sweet.  I Love it.  As a gift or even just for me!


MY DIY Tips.  A pretty fall leaf monochrome leaf print. 

DIY Thanksgiving Gratitude Journal with a free printable from The Polka Dot Chair. 


Mmmm . . . Savoury Pumpkin Dinner Rools that look like little pumpkins. How wonderful!  From BonBon Break.


Jar of Love anyone???  Fill a jar with your intended's favourite treats and then decorate with this sweet label, that is also a jar, filled with sprinkles, etc.  From Inking Idaho.

What did we do before Pinterest???  I get all of my best ideas from there! ☺


A very pretty crochet bag.  I love the ribbon.   From Knots and Loops.  A free pattern. 


A Mermaid Lapghan.   Free pattern.  Adult sized.  A girl from my church just got one of these for her birthday.  What a sweet way to keep warm in the winter.   From DIY and Crafts.  I would love one of these. 


Oh, now this is very pretty.  I couldn't wear it because I am too large, but I know a few people that could wear it.   Maybe a bit longer.   From  Drops Design.


Lace Infinity Scarf.  Free pattern from Ravelry.  You could do several of these in different colours.  A good scarf hides a multitude of sins at a certain age!


Homemade Plant Food.  From Chemistry Cachet.


Now here is a project for someone who is really keen.   Two needle felted slippers.   Wow.  From Ravelry.  Not free.   You knit them in one piece.  I am sorely tempted.


Now that's a tidy bathroom drawer.  The law of averages says that it won't stay like that for long, but I say it is nice if you can manage it.   From  Chasing Foxes.


From Good Housekeeping.  The ultimate guide to great skin. 

And just for fun  . . .


The proper order of makeup application.

Golly, if I used that many products, it would take me all day.  (Yes, I did just say Golly, lol)

And with that I better leave you with a thought to carry through the day . . .

Even to your old age and grey hairs,
I am he who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you.
I will sustain you and 
I will rescue you.
~Isaiah 46:4

And I do too!!


  1. Hi Marie. I love the Christmassy ones! Also the one about taking care of your skin, I go every 6 months to the Dermatology clinic at Clatterbridge to have various things burnt out or cut out, all due to sun damage. It's my birthday today and we're on our way to London to see our grandson, best present ever!! Lots of love xxx

  2. I have never been to a Dermatology Clinic Kate, but would love to go. Happy Birthday! I hope you have a lovely visit with your grandson! xoxo

  3. Good morning Marie. Thank you for the ideas you have shared. Tonight I have been a good girl and folded the washing instead of sewing. Today I took mum to see Bridget Jones Baby. We had a number of laughs.

    God bless your day.

  4. Sounds like a good day Suzan! I am glad for that. Love and hugs. xoxo

  5. Goooooolllly remember who used to say that?

    So funny..oh sometimes I come up w/ humdingers too:) At least it made us smile..

    Lots of cute stuff.I'm afraid that pink skirt would only look good on an Angelina Jolie figure..her name came to me first because of all the news.

    Have a great day Marie!

  6. I sure do Monique! We have some of his DVD's and enjoy them. Gomer Pyle USMC. Todd loves them! Yes about AJ, makes you glad you are not famous and don't have to have your pain paraded in front of the world. I bet your girls would look lovely in one of hose skirts. Love and hugs, xoxo

  7. Some extra good ideas this week Marie, thank you for reminding me that Christmas is coming faster than I want it to ! friend Maggie goes back to Texas on Monday then Peter and I going up to Edinburgh for a few days mid October, next it is the cruise to the Canaries...( that was booked only six weeks ago when PO called to ask me if I still wanted the booking they had put us on a waiting list for !) by the time I come back it's going to be mid November and Christmas really will be upon us...Oh dear where has 2016 gone....

  8. Those pumpkin rolls! ♥♥♥
