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!   

Handmade Rukodelky . . .  a knitted crown.  

Knitty.  A cute Sock Monkey Hat.

Home is where the boat is. Diy Seed packets.

I think happiness is what makes you pretty.
Period. Happy people are beautiful.
They become like a mirror, 
and they reflect that happiness.

And I do too!



  1. Hi Marie, so pleased you had a good Christmas and got to speak to some of your children and grandchildren. The picture of your Mum and Dad is gorgeous!

    My Chistmas was lovely but a bit hectic. As usual trying to see too many people in a short space of time. I'm spending the next few days doing as little as possible!

    I went to see Mary Poppins on Boxing Day and absolutely loved it! I was unsure before I went as I loved the original so much but this is just as good.

    I'm nipping out in a minute for a walk along the beach and to pick some bits up from Morrisons. I feel I need to blow the cobwebs away and get back to normal!

    Have a lovely Friday, lot's of love xxx

    1. I really want to see Mary Poppins. You have made me want to see it even more Kate! I loved the original so much and of course adored the books when I was growing up! I need to get out and blow away the cobwebs also. Happy your Christmas was lovely if hectic! Those are the best kinds! Love and hugs, xoxo

  2. I loved the recipe for the post Christmas hash. So true there are a lot of leftovers to be used up after a Christmas feast. I always love leftovers anyway! Today I'm getting ready for our family gathering tomorrow...Hope you have a fantastic Friday!

    1. Like you, I adore leftovers Pam! I hope you have a truly wonderful family gathering tomorrow! I bet there will be lots of love and excitment on the menu! xoxo

  3. So many cute things:) Too many..that doll is so cute,had never heard of the book:) Have a great day!

  5. I really enjoyed all of the knitting projects. They were unique, fun and loved looking at the photos of them.
    I liked the PJ’s and they would be easy to make and then just get a shirt to match.
    I love the rag dolls. I enjoyed them as a child.
    I had fun going through your finds. Blessings and hugs!
