And I do too!   


  1. Good morning, Marie, lots of interesting things to catch your fancy. I'm going to make those Boulangere Potatoes over rhe weekend. I love the cute strawberry boxes and what a novel way to sprout tomato seedlings. I wonder if you can eat the sprouts like you can bean or pea sprouts. And what would they taste like? Loved the wee jam tarts. Mom always did that with leftover pie crust, too. Yummy! Have a nice day. It's a misty, foggy morninghere. Hugs and love, Elaine

    1. I don't actually think tomato sprouts would taste very good. Are not the leave poisonous anyways? I am going to try those Boulangere Potatoes also if I can get the cheese! Love and hugs, xoxo

  2. Have a good weekend Marie..lots of cute things you find for us..always and thank you.

  3. Love all the ideas, Marie...I don't know how you manage to find so many but it is a great boon to your readers!!
    Hugs, Elizabeth xoxo

    1. Elizabeth maybe I just have too much time on my hands? I don't know, but I enjoy it! Love and hugs, xoxo

  4. Your closing quote is so appropriate for today and our weekend. We finally got warmer but along with that has come lots of rain; So I'll need to be making my own sunshine for sure. Gotta rise above the storms and enjoy each day !

  5. Hi Marie~

    I've missed you! I love all your finds today...a great list of fun things to look up this week-end!

    I hope you and Todd are doing well, it's been a long Spring! Things are opening up here, a little too fast, but we shall see! Bob and I are well, we're staying busy. My daughter and her husband are moving, so we have been busy helping them get things ready. Life sure does have a way of just marching right on by! Hopefully, I will be online a little more, at least with blogging.

    Take care, you and Todd are always in our you both!

    Hugs and Love,

    1. Thanks Barb! I had wondered where you had gotten to! I think things are opening up here a little bit too fast also. I think the scariest bit is how little anyone knows about this virus. Love and hugs to you and Bob, and prayers also! xoxo

  6. You are the best at finding the most fun thing to see and do. There were so fun ones. My favorite was that cute Crocheted sweater. Oh, if I could just fit into that one. The crafts and DIY's are great.
    Praying that the two of you are doing well and always enjoy dropping by to see what you are up too.
    Love and hugs!

    1. I loved that sweater also LeAnn. I post things that interest me and that I hope my friends will also love! It always pleases me when they do! Love, hugs and blessings, xoxo
