Friday Faves

30 Apr

Happy Friday! Here are a few fun things from the interweb that have made me smile this week:

1 :: From Me to You is a captivating blog from NYC photographer Jamie Beck. Her photos are filled with stories and the blog design itself is incredibly detailed.

2 :: I’m really excited about making these homemade pop tarts from Smitten Kitchen. Mr. Jones is a big fan of pop tarts, but he only gets them on trips because I never buy them at home (you don’t even want to know what’s in them). I’ll be sure to do a post on how they turn out!

3 :: My father and brother-in-law recently bought some chicks and they are growing fast! I’m going to help them build a coop soon and am looking forward to some of their tasty eggs (or, to be honest, some free-range chicken if they don’t lay enough). Making it Lovely just featured some stylish and fun chicken coops–mostly out of my price range, but great inspiration!

4 :: Speaking of “out of my price range,” I could never afford this Kate Spade dress, but its polka dots and ruffles are splendid! I’d love to wear this while enjoying the lighter weather of May.

5 :: Mother’s Day is coming up, which means a crop of fun new cards. I went to college with the talented Anna Bond and am always excited to see her new illustrations. This Mother’s Day card is just one of the charming pieces of stationery from her shop, be sure to check them all out!

6 :: If you’re in the mood for a DIY project this weekend, Dried Figs and Wooden Spools just did a great how to on making over your trash can. Simple and cheap!

My plans for the weekend include a trip to the farmer’s market, helping Caleb set up an electric racing track for the Awana Grand Prix on Sunday, and a birthday party for one of the sweetest one-year-olds I know. Happy last day of April!

    Totally made the pop tarts from Smitten yesterday. They are delish and got the thumbs up of approval from Cameron. Florida baker tip: be prepared to follow the warm kitchen tips on her post – I had to keep switching dough out to and from the freezer!!

    RE: – BS. Pegasus was wrong on the argument about looking at the non-distressed median. It serves a few useful purposes, and is not cherry picking as he claimed. Even Tim is now running a regular series on the non-distressed median.Because Pegasus couldn’t win that argument he change the topic to government influenced low rates affecting prices. That is something I agree with, and rather obvious, but not relevant at all to the issue of looking at the non-distressed median. – Rate this comment: 0  0
