Friday’s Faves

Friday’s Faves! On Saturday?!?! I know, right?!

Well, you know that old saying about following your own advice? Let’s say I struggle with that at times. The week before last was super busy and full with double family birthdays, a night out of town, followed by a busy family day long weekend full of activities and visits. This led to late nights and less than perfect self-care practiced throughout the week, including forgetting my vitamins for a few days in a row.

And, boy, did I pay. My immune system finally succumb to a terrible cold and I was home from work for two entire days this week feeling stuffed up and foggy and just generally rotten. I had a few things planned to share with you this past week, but I just couldn’t manage to muster the energy to do anything!

Let’s hope some early nights this weekend make the difference… I think I’m on the mend! Fingers crossed that you are keeping well in your neck of the woods, friends! I did manage to spend some time on Pinterest on Instagram this week and spotted a few beautiful and inspiring things I can’t wait to share with you.

First off, organization always makes me a little bit giddy. And this Pantry Makeover Via Citrine Living is incredible – you should see the before!!

I’m also completely SWOONING over Kelly’s basement family room reveal Via The Lilypad Cottage .  You will definitely want to head over and check it out in full detail! What an awesome space to have…

I loved “walking” through this lovely and super charming Australian home tour Via Town-n-Country Living…

And my friend Sarah shared her coastal style guest room progress Via Life on Virginia Street – I am loving the mix of blues in this space. That paneling is one of my all-time favourite treatments, as well… Plus, the rug?!?! Stunning…

Again, blue for the win! Kim shared her super pretty DIY bedroom makeover with board and batten and navy paint Via Kim Power Style

I have some lovely pom pom pillows that I bought through Wayfair a couple of years back, but I have always wanted to be able to sew my own. And now, I can (and so can you!!) with this awesome tutorial for DIY Pom Pom pillows  Via Cami at Tidbits …

Is your family following the Olympics? My boys have been obsessed! I spotted this fun to make Olympic Medals craft for kids Via Real Coake Family -it’s from the last Olympics but could easily be modified to suit this one!

Last weekend we had a huge Mexican feast with some friends, and there were A LOT of leftovers. So after feeding my family leftover Mexican all week, I’d say they are ready to eat something different… I think I need to try this Mediterranean Quinoa Salad Via Cooktoria this week… doesn’t it look awesome?

We had a sunny day yesterday! So glorious! The sunshine definitely puts me in the mood for bringing out the spring decor and retiring the winter branches (as well as the Christmas porch -eek! I still have a stag head on my wreath!). And while I had hoped to get to it last weekend, I didn’t quite get there… so today is the day! But, I have to make some spring decor decisions. Everything is blue and green around here right now and I’m really enjoying it… but I do love the pops of pink I used in last year’s spring living room. So I’m not sure whether I want to stick with the pillows I made last year using this fabric from Tonic Living...

Or whether I want to make some more with some of this fabric instead?

Really, they are quite similar. The only difference is the pops of pink. I am debating whether to bring back the pink, or stick with all blues and greens for the spring season. What do you think??

Decisions, decisions…

Did you see something you want to remember?

Have a great weekend, friends!
