Friday Finds

Happy Weekend!

Friday, January 4th, 2013

Christmas is all cleaned up, packed and put away, and now we’re moving on to a few projects around the house.  We’re assembling some new shelves for my office this weekend and I’m prepping for a big photo shoot at my house too, I’ll be sure to Instagram a few shots of the process going on next week (follow me here.)

Have you toured the HGTV Dream Home for 2013?  This colorful bathroom is my favorite space, what’s yours?

I’d get way too grumpy on a juice cleanse, but I’m drawn to this food lover’s cleanse – a lot of these recipes look both healthy and tasty!

I’m so excited about the return of Downton Abbey this weekend, are you?  I took the quiz Which Downton Abbey Job Is Right for You? and apparently the one for me is the same as my favorite character.  Awesome.  Take it and tell me which job you get!

Weekend Reading

Friday, December 21st, 2012

Christmas weekend hellos to you all, time to enjoy the last few days before the big holiday.  I’ve got most of my shopping done, but a few stocking stuffers remain.  We’re entertaining a crowd tomorrow so I’m in full party mode, but before signing off for the weekend, I wanted to share my latest articles over at the Better Homes & Gardens blog

I rounded up plenty of holiday inspiration this month, but also shared some tips on introducing color and creating storage, enjoy!

Friday Finds

Friday, December 7th, 2012

Hello and happy weekend friends!  Thanks so much to all of the participants in the Craft Link Party, you amaze me!  There are 600+ holiday projects to explore so I encourage you to hop around and get inspired!

I was out of town this week in Atlanta for a quick trip so this week’s Friday Finds is a short one, not too many links today.  I’m still recovering from several nights of very little sleep so I’m happy to spend a quiet weekend at home and decorate our Christmas tree, perhaps do some local shopping too.  Here are a few interesting links I came across this week, enjoy.

Perhaps you’ve heard that Emerald was announced as Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2013, following what’s been hot in fashion.  Are you a fan of this jewel tone?
