friday finds

06 February 2009

What a great week with a free photo book and the awesome posts by Susan!
I wanted to start the weekend by sharing some finds brimming with red/ valentine goodness throughout blogland this week:

Do you remember this lovely light from my master bath (that I'm supposed to be working on??)

You have to see what Blue Castle did with hers that she found at a thrift store:

She re-wired it, painted it red and hung it in her kitchen. Is that thinking outside of the box, or what? Amazing. I love people who can see hidden potential.

I love this banner that Tiffany over at The Children's Nest made:

I also loved Katie's red hots with a simple gingham ribbon for Valentines over at Harrington House:
The cutest canister makeover ever by Cherry over at Cherry's Jubilee:
And this adorable stitched Valentine shirt by Nicole over at Our Cozy Nest that makes me want to sew:

I love blog-land inspiration! I hope you have a wonderful weekend...


  1. I LOVE your blog!! It inspires me!! Hope you don't mind I found you over at Shandy Vogts site.
    Have a great weekend! April

  2. All these ideas are so great! I especially love that light! Yes, I have to agree, blogland is too fun!

  3. Oh for funny! You do have the same light! I'll have to check back to see what you do with your bathroom. I just love makeovers. :)

  4. Those are all so cute! You should paint your lamp. I never would have thought of red, but I LOVE it!


  5. I just wanted to Thank You for the Free book info. I filled it out and got my number for my Free one! I have been a fan of your site for awhile. I actually know your In-Laws. My husband and I went to SVU and that is how I came upon your site thru your Sis-in-Law mentioning it on her site. I just wanted to say Thanks for all the inspiration!

  6. Love that lamp idea- it looks great! I always want to find a hidden treasure and make it shine- it's a true talent!

  7. Thanks for featuring my Valentines shirt on your blog. Your blog is one of my favorites so it was fun to see it on here. So how is 5? Much harder than 4? Were trying to figure out how to make room for a #4!

  8. Thank you thank you thank you for the spotlight!! You are too sweet! Your blog is amazing BTW!! Love that we also share the same faith :o) Have a beautiful day Melissa!

  9. Thanks for sharing. Love the finds!

    On a side note, I had a question about the beautiful mini makeover you did on your little table. When you have a second, could you shoot me an e-mail? Thanks!

  10. Thanks so much for the links to the fun projects!! I love getting inspiration from other bloggers!
