And I do too!


  1. Have knitted at least a dozen of those slippers. Easy. Nice and warm. Satisfying knitting. Love the fox. Would love a slow cooker. And Christmas. Well it will eventually reach us! At the moment it is day to day stuff. Lots of Sagittarian in this family so loads of birthdays coming up. Cheers!

  2. Good morning Marie. As usual I am in awe of the finds you have shared. Thank you so very much. I need to get ready for Christmas.

    God bless.

  3. That appetizer link looks intriguing. I have some salami slices in the fridge that need to be used up. Hope you have a fantastic Friday!

  4. LOve the shadow box earplug holder and fox scarf:)
    Reminds me..I had a very very very old foz stole in the attic..Oli was at our house and I tried it on him:)He brought to his mom and she was not omprssed ol..we garbaged less thing to move when we movelol

  5. I really like the look of those slippers Linda! I think I will give them a go. Just a bit afraid of slipping! My Birthdays all start this month also! They won't end until January! xoxo

    Let me know if you try them if you like them Suzan! They looked good to me also! xoxo

    Yikes about the fur stole! haha, I can imagine Monique! A knitted one is preferable! xoxo

  6. I always love your Friday finds. You are amazing at finding so many cute items. Thanks for sharing the ideas; it has helped me more than once. I liked the slippers and maybe i will try to make some at some point.
    Thanks for sharing the Dog friendly over the counter medications; I loved that one. Also, really liked the how to set a proper table. I think everyone should learn how to do this. Of course, I have never set that many utilsels but nice to know how to do it if there was a reason.
    I love that you share where to get free gift tags and other Christmas items.
    I loved the little Toadstools and Nativity crafts; so fun.
    Blessings and hugs for you dear friend~

  7. Blessings and hugs right back LeAnn! So happy you enjoyed! xoxo
