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!

From Crabapple Studio, some beautifully embroidered tea towels.  Days of the week. Flower Pots.  Lovely.

Dye your Easter Eggs naturally.  12 tips on just how to do that from Mamabee.  Using natural products.  I love  the deep blue one, oh and the yellow one!  I love them all!

Easy peasy, homemade Easter Eggs with a gift inside.   I have used balloons for paper mache before.  This looks a doddle and what a great surprise!  From DIY Enthusiasts.

Easy Poached Eggs using a sieve.  From Simply Recipes.  I love it!

I love these, but I am matchbox obsessed anyways.   You can look through the windows!  From Paper, Scissors &Superheroes.  I would draw my own house and windows though.

Mason Jar Lights.  A complete tutorial.  From Wiki How.

From the people at BHG.  How to make a small bathroom look larger.  I love curtains on anything. 

Pizza in a mug, from The Typical Mom.   Love this idea.  Love anything in a mug.

The Late Bloomer sweethearts tea towel.  No pattern per se.  Just eye candy and inspiration.

Man's Wallet, but you could also do it for a woman with different fabrics.  A complete tutorial at The Sewing Directory.


 Printable Valentine Cards by Handmade Charlotte.  So cute!

 Mini Chocolate Mail Boxes for Valentines Day.  Such a simple idea and so cute.  From No Biggie.  A complete tutorial.


36th Avenue.  Free printables for an edible box of matches.  These are so cute!


This is really neat.  No source, but it is an umbrella frame with led lights twisted around the spokes and just simply hung from the ceiling.

And finally, How to Crochet a Rag Rug using fabric strips.  From Crazy Mom Quilts.   Simple.

And those are my finds for this week. I hope you were inspired to get out there and do/make something!  

A thought to carry with you through today . . .

  5. You are right Monique, they totally do! I love those Patisserie boxes. It is very cold here today. The wind is bitter! I am making us a stew in my pressure pot. Hope it turns out. Tis the first time I am using it! Wish me luck! I thought it would come in handy when Todd is having his treatments as I can set it to timer and have, hopefully, a delicious dinner waiting for us when we get home! xoxo

  6. I am wondering how your dinner worked out.

    As usual; I am in awe of your finds. So many pretty things. I don't know how you find such deliciousness all the time. I love the teatowels most of all.

    God bless you and Todd.
