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!   

Cat Paper Dolls.  I couldn't find a source.  But how cute are they!

And those are my finds for this week. I hope there was something here to interest you!

Did you watch the Trooping of the Colours yesterday?  This is an annual thing that we always watched every year.  This year of course was/is extra special because of the Jubilee. I thought the Queen looked very elegant in her blue outfit.  She seemed very happy and I loved to see William and Kate's children.  We often forget that these are not just "Royals" but also a family.   Kate as usual was impeccable.  Apparently the Queen is resting for a few days.  I think yesterday was quite a bit for her to take in.  We also forget that she is 96 and not an Eveready bunny that can keep going and going and going.

I will leave you with a thought for the day to carry with you  . . .

In The English Kitchen today  . . .  Crispy Herb Turkey Thighs, done in the air fryer. They were beautiful. Crisp skinned, well flavored, juicy meat.  A new love!  I also made my own Herbs de Province to season them with. 

Have a fabulous Friday.  Don't forget!
