Friday Finds

January 25, 2013

Hello all and happy Friday!  I’m still out of town, but wanted to share a few lovely links with you before taking off to enjoy the weekend.   But first, here are the latest posts over at my Better Homes & Gardens blog, be sure to read the most recent articles!

I’ve been wearing both this bracelet and this bracelet while at ALT – they’re my new favorites but as I mentioned on Instagram today, completely impractical when I need to type!  So they ended up off my arms more than on today, but I prefer to wear bracelets more than necklaces and these go with everything from dresses to denim, they’re fabulous and fun!

How cool is this site?  It turns the map of your hometown or favorite city into a watercolor.

Great news, the ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ series returns again on Sunday afternoon with some inspiring projects we’ve spied around the web, can’t wait to share.

A note on emails – several of you have emailed me recently and my response is returned with an error because of a typo when entering your email address.  So if you’ve been waiting to hear from me and you used my Contact form, send it again and make sure your email is typed correctly.

Have a great weekend!

    Hi Kate, I read all your posts and enjoy them thoroughly. My question is – What is “Instagram”?

  2. Jessie says:

    Hi Kate, I just googled Instagram so a reply isn’t necessary. (don’t know why I didn’t think of that first) SILLY ME !!

    Ha Jessie, you’re not alone! Instagram is a newer social media platform, great for behind the scenes peeks but it does require an iPhone or Android. It’s a fun way to share snippets of your life!

  4. I love that Tumblr, and I’m such an animal lover that the story about the little cat finding its way home just about made me cry :)
