My Friday Finds

A few of the things  I find each week that pique my interest, bring me joy, inspire me to learn, create, do, become . . . Maybe they will do the same for you!  
This isn't anything you can make yourself, but I just thought it was the sweetest little doll.  Quirky and different. I love dolls.  This is from Melodie Stacy on Etsy.  It is no longer for sale, but I thought it was cute.  
How to grow your own Avocado Tree.  From  

Something Turquoise, how to make your own rolled beeswax candles.  
Sum of their Stories.  Felt needlecase. Simple tutorial.  
Viva Veltoro.  Simple 5 minute cloth napkins.  
Adventure in a Box, painted Garden markers.  Cute!  
First Grade A La Carte.  Mini Post It Clip Boards.  Cute idea.  
Eye candy from Astrid Lecornu.   
Tidbits, DIY Lace Pillowcase.  
Kurly Knits, traditional tea cosy. Love this and I adore the colours.  
The Rabbits Projekt on Instagram. More doll eye candy.  
Clean and Scentsible.  Budget printables.  
October Afternoon.  Pocket Page Mini Album. Simple.  
Back to Our Roots.  Sourdough 101.  
Can you stand another Tea Cosy?  I love this one, by Knit Jo Sharp. Not free but not an expensive pattern either. I really like it.

The new trend.  Apparently it is replacing Hygge. 
Hooks and Tails.  Crochet Christmas Bunting.  Free tutorial and video. 
The French Connection.  Such a pretty square.  
Savor and Savvy. How to save money on groceries without coupons.  They don't do coupons over here.  I am not sure why.  I miss coupons.  
And those are my finds for this week.  I hope there was something here to interest you! 
I am off to be boobie squished today.  I am sure that if men had to go through a similar testing for man-part cancer, a better way would have been invented!

A thought to carry with you!

And I do too!



  1. Hi, Marie--Happy Friday! So many see and good things here today! Oh, I would love an avocado tree! I have tried planting avocado pits...but no success! We don't really the climate for such a tree to survived, I don't think... and we don't have a greenhouse. Those homemade bees was candles are lovely! I just love those garden markers--great idea! Ooo...those lacy pillow cases are beautiful!! VERY interesting construction/stitch pattern for that first knit teacosy. I just love bread baking, and hope to try some sourdough baking yet this year--so that link in timely. We don't have coupons here, and I miss them a lot--it is a nice way to save! It's actually really hard to save money here on food, as most supermarkets are neck-n-neck with prices. :/ Wishing you well today with your mammogram, and that's only GOOD results too. Thinking of you... Wishing you all a good weekend now too! LOVE YOU SOOO MUCH, my dear friend! :))) ((LOVE & BIGGEST HUGS))

    1. They have never worked for me either Tracy. It is probably the climate. All of the supermarkets here are pretty aligned price wise also. It is hard to save money. Hope you are enjoying a fabulous weekend. Love you to bits sweet friend! xoxo

  2. Even though you are off to be squished I do hope this Friday is a good one for you ! Cloudy and cooler here this morning !

    1. Hope you have a great weekend Pam! Happy Mother's Day! xoxo

  3. I will be joining you soon..on the mammo path..
    Lots ofe lovelies here..although I am a failure w/ sourdough starters..the no kneads are made for me.
    I think you could make those twin dolls and they are cute!Not sure re the avos..:) In QC? Hundreds?LOL..we pay ap $1.00 each now at Costco:( But we eat half a day each respectively.Love them.
    Have been in love w/ Astrid's creations for a few years now♥ Bon weekend..And Happy CDN Mother's Day to you.

    1. I have never had success with sourdough either Monique! I adore avocado, but they are very expensive here! Happy Mother's Day to you also! xoxo

  4. Hi Marie!

    Oh, so many sweet and wonderful things to look at today! I love all of your finds, and always take way too much page space writing about them... ;0) You always find best things!

    I have been looking for a new wreath for my front door, but I just refuse to pay what they want for one! I'll bet I have enough fabric to make a cute fabric wreath, just sitting in a bin! If not, I'm sure it wouldn't cost 40.00 o buy the fabric... :0/

    Gorgeous pillow cases! Why is it that Spring, is when I want to make my bed beautiful?! Maybe it's because I can open the windows and let the breeze just make everything seem so fresh and clean. I always gravitate to white for sheets, and lace is a perfect compliment to it.

    We were at my son's house tonight, and I noticed a basket with painted rocks by their back door. I looked closer and noticed that each one was painted like a vegetable, they were adorable! They are getting ready to plant their garden, and I can't wait to see them sitting pretty among the plants. This year, they tilled up a huge spot to grow and sell pumpkins, now I can't wait until Fall to see them!

    Hope the "squishing" turned out ok, I need to have it done and just keep putting if off...eeekkk!

    We have been running like crazy really just needs to settle down a bit. It is suppose to rain the rest of the week, and it's quite cold outside. I do hope that next week is a little quieter!

    Loved your quote today...we really do need to be kinder to ourselves, don't we. Love you tons, sweet friend!!

    Hugs and Love,

    1. I love that you live close to your children Barb. I hope they spoil you this weekend for Mother's Day. Wishing for you a quieter next week. Love and hugs. xoxo
