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!

A handy chart which shows you how many minutes you need to walk a day in order to lose weight according to your height and weight.  I think I might need to walk for the rest of my life, haha.  


Are you a knitter?  Here is a free Advent Calender  Garland of tiny mittens, although if you are like me it might take you until next year, if then to get them done!  From  Just Crafty Enough.

Sock Monkey Christmas Ornaments.  From LuullaI know a couple of little boys who would love these!

I just love LOVE this shawl.  From Cherry Heart.   It's not a free pattern, but its not expensive either.  She has LOTS OF PATTERNS.  Some of them are free.

And finally 12 self care ideas that take 5 minutes or less.  From Jane Travis.

And those are my finds for this week.  I hope you found something of value that you can use.  I find lots more than this, but these are things I think you just might like.  I hope that you did!

A thought to carry with you . . .

Start every day with a new hope,
Leave bad memories behind,
Have faith for a better tomorrow.

  1. Good morning Marie. I am afraid I am struggling today so I will wish everyone well and ask God to bless us all.

  2. I am so sorry to read that Suzan. Keeping you in my heart and my prayers. xoxo

  3. You had so many good things in your finds today. I especially like the idea of the garland Advent calendar. That is unique. Now I'm going to check out the recipe for sausage and apples. It sounds yummy for sure!
    Hope you have a fantastic Friday!

  4. I love that lace edged shawl many cute cute things:) You do find wonderful ideas Marie:)

  5. Thanks Pam! Hope you have a fabulous Friday also Pam! The sausage dish is a real winner! xoxo

    Thanks Monique! I must make that shawl. It is on my wish list! Hope your day is going well. xoxo

  6. Oh my gosh, I loved everyone of these finds. I am going to be looking up more about most of them I did love the same crocheted shawl that you loved, loved. I wish I could make it.
    These were just really some awesome items I like. I really really liked the chart on how many minutes you need to walk each day to lose weight. I am always working on this one. I need to walk more but I am always feeling tired. I think it might be because I am old.
    Sending loving thoughts your way and hugs too.

  7. I am always feeling tired also LeAnn! Some days I feel ancient! I think I could walk 24/7 for the rest of my life and still not lose weight! xoxo


Your comments mean the world to me, and while I may not be able to address each one individually, each one is important to me and each one counts. Thanks so much!
