Friday Finds on a Saturday



A few of the things I find each week that pique my interest and inspire me to want to do, create, become, etc. Maybe they will also inspire you!   

Sorry for my absence yesterday. I was sitting in Outpatients by 6 am waiting to get my precriptions looked at.  Thankfully I was successful and now have working prescriptions in Canada.  Yay! 


   Key Lime Cake with a Cream Cheese Frosting, from She's Got Flavor.    Sigh  . . .  It sure looks good, but I probably shouldn't be eating stuff like this.  But a girl can dream can't she? 


Homemade Flower Pot Heater.    With it being Winter season and it's storms, power outage possibilities etc., this is a fab idea!  From  Living Green and Frugally

In The English Kitchen today, Homemade Bourbon Biscuits. Quite simply delicious. 

Things are starting to fall into place. Step by step. Now all I have to do is find a place to live and get a car. My father has a line on a car for me that I am going to investigate but the place to live may take a while longer. I will get there.

Have a lovely Saturday and don't forget!
