Friday Finds

I didn't realize until Tuesday that I forgot to post Friday Finds last week. Good thing I'm not getting paid for this gig! I'm happy to be back at-it today. 

Karah blogs about her life on the beautiful island of Curacao at The Space Between where she's been busy making a pallet bed and bedding for her tropical rooftop.  Even if your bedroom doesn't have an island view like this one, check out Karah's entertaining how-to for this fun recycled bed.

 And speaking of beds, Andrea at The Cottage Market has shared 25 Fabulous DIY Pet Bed ideas. Lucky dogs and cats!

Vanessa at Nifty Thrifty Things is displaying her grandmother's sewing thread in her new flea market type case. It makes a colorful, practical, sentimental and pretty piece of wall art.

Angie at Postcards from the Ridge is the talented photographer who shot these rainbow colored Adirondack chairs near her weekend lake home.  Visit Angie to see more of her beautiful photos and her great blog. I know you'll love them as much as I do.

Over at Nest of Posies, Kellie dipped some dollar store votives in acrylic paint and came up with these cuties.

My daughter gave me some new Popsicle molds, so I've been pinning summer recipes like this one for Frozen Fruit Pops from Gina's Skinny Recipes.

Martha Stewart used inexpensive vinyl tablecloths to make outdoor pillows.

At Rooted in Thyme Stan and Jody made this beautiful Inspired Flower Stand. My favorite part is the little bird on top.

And Jill at One Good Thing made this sweet Shabby Chic Rag Valance.

(and I'm so glad I remembered them!)

Happy Friday!
