My Friday Finds . . .



A few of the things I find each week that inspire me to want to do better, to create, to become better, to read more, to watch, to just DO something! Things that delight, inspire, and bring me joy.  Maybe they will do the same thing for you!  

Hat & Scarf all in one.  Harlequin Hoodie by Markin of the Hat and I on Ravelry.

No source, just inspiration. These are so sweet!


Crochet 365, Knit Too.  Daisy Mae Bag. Free.

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

I watched the film Blonde on Netflix.  WORST film ever. I hated it.  I think the actress was very convincing as Marilyn, but what a depressing movie. H A T E D it.

On the plus side, did you know that you can watch the show from the 1980's called Family on the CTV ap?  I always love, loved that show. I used to watch it every week when it was on. Used to day dream about having their house, etc. I had house envy.  But what did I know, a young army wife living in a dinky little house on an army base with 4 kids, 3 under the age of five and in diapers, and a husband who was always away. It was pure escapism for me.

A thought to carry with you . . .

I am thankful for all
those negative people in my life.
They have shown me 
exactly who I did not want to be.
