Friday Finds

A few of the wow moments, or things I discover each week that tickle my fancy. I hope that they may inspire or tickle yours too! 

Ice Cream Balloons.. this would be cute for a kids Candy Land themed birthday party.

No source for this or instructions, but they are ice cream balloons!  Such a simple and easy idea and they would be great for parties!

DIY paper cup crown

I am loving this simple do it yourself paper cup crown.  There is a complete picture tutorial on Estefi Machado!  It's in Spanish, but with the photographs you won't need to worry about that anyways.  I think it's brilliant!

How to root hydrange Flowers

How to root hydrangeas.  From Gorgeous Flowers Garden & Love.  I never knew it was so simple.  I am going to definitely try this out as we have some beautiful hydrangea out front and I would love more!

Have you always wanted to know how to fold your sheets like this?  So that you can store them easier and all together in the linen cupboard?   I found a complete pictorial tutorial on The Complete Guide to Imperfect Homemaking!  It's just brilliant.  In fact that blog is brilliant.   I love the internet!  You can find out how to do just about anything on it!  FAB-U-LOUS!  

I like the separate bins for potatoes and onions, the tall narrow containers for flour, etc., and having it all under the counter. It's so organized!

I love the organization of this unit.   From Not Just a Housewife.   I need organization on this level.  Everything is just sort of shoved into what I call a baking cupboard.   When I need something I have to practically empty the whole cupboard to get to it.  It drives me up the wall and is so frustrating.  I need help!


From Nest of Posies, a tutorial on how to make a little play house for the kids from an old appliance box!  This is so much fun!  I would have love, LOVED one of these when I was a child!  You can get the kids to do all the painting, etc.   It would keep them busy and they would get a lot of mileage out of this, plus the cost is negligible!

A free Printable for Journals.   I love these colours.  I found this on Vintage Glam Studio.  There are a lot of fabulous ideas and printables, etc. on that page.   People are just so very clever!

 Sunbonnet girl

I love this Sunbonnet Sue Needle Keeper.  You can find the pattern on House Wren Studio.  It would not be at all difficult to make if you are handy with a needle and thread, and I am thinking if you want to make this at all, you would be a needle and thread kind of person!

Make your own cookie mixes!  Just like the ones you can buy, except you make them yourself at home.  I found this on Fake It Frugal.   She has a ton of ideas on there for things you can make.  All kinds of mixes, etc.   It's just brilliant!  You pay a mint for these sorts of things in the shops.

And that's it for this week.  I hope you found something useful amongst all of this!

A thought to carry with you through today . . .

In The English Kitchen today . . . delicious low fat Strawberry Milkshakes!  So easy and quick to make and barely an ounce of fat in them, and NO sugar!  Just honey.   Bliss!

Have a fabulous Friday!  This week sure has whizzed by!


  1. Enjoy your day Marie. Thank you for all these links to check out.

  2. You're welcome Suzan. You enjoy your day as well! xx

  3. I looked with envy at those neatly folded sheets. I can never get mine folded to look like that. I do put top and bottom sheets as well as one pillow case inside the other pillow case of the set, keeping them altogether. It looks like we have a beautiful day coming our way...The sun is now above the trees and houses in the neighborhood and the sky is blue. Hope you have a fantastic Friday!

  4. My sheets are mayhem..
    And always will be..LOL..
    Cute finds Marie!

  5. My sheets all fit in a drawer beneath the bed Pam and Monique. I am thinking I could get more in if I folded them this way! xxoo

  6. Marie I just love all your links you do for us. I always find at least one of them that is so helpful. Thanks for helping us with the sweet delights. Fake it Frugal is a wonderful site. Have a super wonderful weekend.

  7. Thanks Brenda! I am glad to know that you find them helpful! I love the Fake it Frugal site too!!
