My Favourite Articles and Links This Week
This is exactly how I feel about spring, too – My least favourite season.
I have a fear of operating rooms (more specifically, I’m terrified of being operated on), and I wish someone had done something like this the two times I’ve had to be in an operating room. That’s the the sort of kindness you don’t ever forget.
My Favourite Pins This Week
I love seasonal eating (well, I also love eating raspberries all year long, so maybe I’m not totally about seasonal eating….) so I’m craving sprouts on everything. And if you haven’t had sprouts in a while, come join me on the sprouts bandwagon- microgreens add loads of vitamins and are deeply satisfying to munch in a sandwich. I’m not saying that you will be a million times happier after eating this, but at least twice as happy. Eating bagels makes me happy, too. Pinterest link is here, and the recipe is right here.
I love going to street festivals for one major reason- there is always a food truck selling hot and fresh mini doughnuts covered in cinnamon sugar. It’s the only time I have them, and they are one of my favourite treats ever. These French Breakfast Puffs are very similar to those mini doughnuts- they are baked in stead of fried, which apparently means that now they are a legitimate breakfast option?! I also love that they are called French breakfast puffs, because now I not only can have doughnuts for breakfast, I’ll feel fancy and French when I do. Pinterest link is here, and the full recipe post is here.
If you have a plain purse that could use a little pick-me-up (or thrifted one to experiment on!), this is a great tutorial on using floral appliques on a bag, and adding an embroidery floss (or yarn!) tassel. So much prettier than the plain black, don’t you think? Pinterest link is here, and the DIY can be found here.
Seeing wonderful containers like this totally makes me want to learn to crochet more than a basic chain stitch. I love the leather handles, such a thoughtful detail that really elevates the look of the baskets! Pinterest link is here, and the full pattern is right here.
Sometimes you go out and it’s just like this. No harm in leaving early and getting back to your pajamas. Pinterest link is here, but I can’t quite seem to find the original image – if anyone knows, please share!
It’s a busy weekend ahead- Lila’s birthday party is on Sunday! I also have been working on some upcoming posts to talk a bit about my freelance work, and my processes, for those that might be interested in my work side of life. I don’t know where i’m going to find the time, but I’m hoping to finish the first post from that series and have it ready to go this coming week. Have a wodnerful weekend, everyone!
