Friday Finds

The birds are singing like crazy in my neighborhood today. I think spring just might be here to stay! 

I haven't been able to make my regular rounds of my favorite blogs this week or even answer emails and respond to comments. I really miss it and am looking forward to this weekend and catching up. 

I found out recently that my blog posts were not going out to my subscribers for over a month. I apologize for that and think I have the feed fixed. Except now it looks wonky and is duplicating posts, and I'm not sure how to fix that

Do you ever wish you had your very own tech guy? Someone kind of cute and nerdy with glasses?  

I do!

But, on to Friday Finds! 

Tracy at Crow's Feet Chic often decorates with charming colorful vignettes like this one featuring a happy new Norwegian family connection she made via ancestry. com. I just love that Tracy has a vintage Norwegian/English dictionary in her signature color (turquoise).      

This baseball wreath was made by Gail over at My Repurposed Life along with her nephew, Bubba, who is a baseball coach. It's definitely one of my all time favorite wreaths. "P" is for Bubba's last name and also for Panthers, the baseball team he coaches. So cute! Wouldn't this be a sweet gift for the baseball fan in your life?

Becky at Beyond the Picket Fence is a pallet makin' mama. She's the pallet queen. She makes so many great pallet projects, she's running out of names to call them. I hope that won't stop her from creating more great furniture like this pallet magazine table. Don't you just love the cubbies and wheels?

At Away for the Weekend, Karen shares beautiful photographs from the area around her Vermont weekend home.  My favorites are her barns, and I hope she publishes them all in a big book one day. 

Maria Elena decorates beautifully for every holiday and season at Our Home Away From Home. This week  she is showing us the amazing closet where she stores her fabulous "secret stash." You have to see it all to believe it!

Robin from The Dating Divas has shared an easy tutorial for making these adorable magnetic people. She even has tips for posing. Isn't this just the cutest family? 

Don't you think desserts served in jars look extra special and tasty? Linda at It All Started With Paint made these gorgeous mason jar lemon meringue pies for her family and shares the recipe and how-to with us.

That's a wrap for this week. 

Hope you have a 

Happy Friday

and a great weekend
