Friday's Favourites #8

Happy Easter!  I hope you all have some fun things planned for the extra-long weekend!  We have a family dinner on Sunday, but nothing much planned other than that.  Perhaps snowman building?  But my guess is all the snow will be gone sometime tomorrow.  I hope you enjoy these Good Friday links!

One of my newest followers, Jessica at Vintage Mauve, has the cutest story about how she chose her blog name.  And that's what got me thinking about my own blog name!  (Please vote in my poll if you haven't already!  If you have, thanks so much for your support!)  Sunny Vanilla, who I discovered in a roundabout way via Vintage Mauve, also has a meaningful and sweet blog-name story.


Just look at this adorable little couch!  I love the shape of it and the pretty fabric.  Can you believe it was once 2 feet longer, and the owner sawed it in half?  Seriously!  Check it out.  Thanks to Melissa for bringing this amazing and ambitious project to my attention via facebook!


Cheri of I Am Momma Hear Me Roar has compiled a brilliant list of 10 ways to keep kids happy on a road trip.  I'm going to need this in the summer when we drive 7 hours into the mountains for a big family vacation.


I found this brilliant list on Pinterest.  The gifts on the list are so simple, but when given to the right person, show great thought and consideration and love.  I definitely want to do several of them!


  1. What happened? I now have to click through my blog reader to get your full blog instead of being able to read the posts on my reader.


    Please change it back!


    1. Done, Christan, just for you! Thanks for letting me know your preference.
