Friday Favorites



one: Terra Cotta Trellis by sagefox
two: Type Bird from tabidesigns
three: Gorgeous Ginseng by retrofied
four: Owl be yours from dayslonggone

Good morning! I'm taking off this morning, heading home to visit my family. The weekend will hopefully involve a proper manicure, some girl time, yummy food and a walk with the puppies (my parent's two Siberian huskies). I get so excited about these trips, you can ask my husband, I'm nearly bouncing out of my seat when we swing into town. Such a dork!

I wanted to give you a heads up: GIVE AWAY ON MONDAY! I'll be doing a special give away for all you lovely people :) So be sure to stop by!

Also wanted to send out a special thank you to Paula and Miss Aimee for the heart warming love you gave me this week :) THANK YOU THANK YOU! Honestly, I was so touched. I'm going to be sending out the love to 10 (this was tough!) special blogs that continue to inspire me and lift my spirits every time I visit: Heart of Light, Little Brown Pen, Two Ellie, Mostly Mod, Tiny Red, {this is glamorous}, Callie, Mint, Design Lovely, Quaint Handmade. Find out more info here!
