Friday Finds

It's going to be 100-something degrees again here today, so after I take Tucker for a hike I'm going to hunker down inside with the air conditioner. Except I just remembered I'm meeting my daughter to go grocery shopping this afternoon. And I have to water the garden. Oh, and I need to go pick up a tool at the hardware store.  Hmmm, I hope I haven't forgotten anything else.

Well, one thing I did remember to do today is post my Friday Finds!

Setting for Four's Heather made these easy photo holders from  rocks she collected on the beach to hold some black and white photos of her boys playing in the sand when they were little. So sweet!

The Daily Bison shared some tags that a friend made out of an old atlas. Wouldn't these be fun to make as mementos using vacation destinations or other personally significant places?

 Vintage Prairie Style shares a tutorial for making this mason jar rope light. Don't you just love that chunky rope?

At Town and Country Living, Jennifer decorated this pretty little bottle with paint and a Graphics Fairy image

I love, love, love taking tours of other blogger's craft rooms. To see the rest of Rebecca's beautiful craft studio, visit A Re-Purposed Life.

This asparagus fern and spider plant hanging in old rusty funnels are from Connie's enchanting garden shared by Peggy at Hidden Hills Garden.

Tracey at The Kitchen is My Playground shares the recipe for her Sausage and Balsamic - Caramelized Onion Pizza, inspired by Williams-Sonoma.

I'm definitely adding these ingredients to my grocery shopping list for pizza night.  

I'm off to try to stay cool as I run my errands. 

Thanks for coming over today. 

Happy Friday!
