My Friday Finds . . .

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!


Pine Cone Reindeer.  These are really cute and I think that even children could make them.  Could be a great group project or grandparent/grandchild thing to do.  Found on The WHoot.  And there are quite a few different ones on the page as well.


Yarn Pumpkins.  From One Little Project.  


Halloween Luminaries.  These are really nice.  Found on  Oh So Saavy Mom.


Chocolate Reindeer Marshmallow Pops.  These are so cute!  From Just a Taste.

Painting Styles Check List.  Very helpful.  Found on Water Colour Journey.


I love, LOVE this afghan.  The pattern is pretty and the colours simple.  The possibilites are endless. I have not been able to find the pattern. Any help?  I would love to make it.


These chair seat covers are also really nice.  I do like them.  Free Pattern.  Poppy Creates.  They are essentially one large granny square, so very easy to do and a great way to use up yarn scraps.


Chicken Towel Toppers.  From Ravelry.  Cute.


Eighteen  DIY Projects using Embroidery Hoops.   From Babble.

A pretty way to keep jewelry tidy.  From Sunlit Spaces.


How to make a pretty Autumnal Succulent Planter using a cheap styrafoam pumpkin.  From Maison de Pax.


Free Printable Vintage Christmas Tags.  From Wild at Heart.   


Easy Snowman Towel Topper.  From  Dragonfly Mom of 2.

 Crochet Hook Holder.  From Little Treasures.  This is so cute.


Portobello Mushroom Starters. From The Sun and Peta Todd.  These look fabulously delicious.


Hot Chocolate Stir Sticks.   The Jenny Evolution.


And finally a bit of inspiration from Clean Scentsible

My head is a bit all over the place this morning.   We are off to the hospital bright and early at 9 am.  Then tomorrow and Sunday we will be out and about very early in the morning so I am not sure I will be able to post anything. If you don't see me, don't worry.  I will be back on track by Monday and probably with lots to share!

Oh, and for some reason none of my photo bucket photographs are showing today which is really annoying, as all of my food photos are stored on Photo Bucket.  I have more problems with photo bucket than you can shake a stick at.   Anyone got any viable alternatives that allow for abundant photo storage?  That don't cost a bomb?   I pay $8.99 a month for photo bucket and I am not sure it is worth it with all the hassle I have.

Have a great Friday!  Don't forget!
