My Favourite Articles and Links This Week
This virtual tour of a French butter factory is amazing. Trust me.
Yes, planning for travel can be hard work and a bit of pain. But the happiness is worth it.
You know those raccoon fur pom poms that are suddenly everywhere? It’s not from a raccoon. Which doesn’t really surprise me, since we have a lot of raccoons here in Toronto and their fur doesn’t look anything like those pom poms.
I was so happy with this recent review of my poetry collection, Lady Crawford. If you’d like to read some poem samples, see a clip, and generally hear what someone else has to say about the book, check it out!
My Favourite Pins This Week
I love pretty much any panini that has pesto on it, so Starbucks has really got my number. But you can make them at home!! Be still, my pesto-loving heart. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
I’ve made some heart cookies like this with Lila before, but I love this idea – I think it’s time to try again! I previously tried it with rolled fondant icing, which works great; I could try with the royal icing instead. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post can be found here.
I’m a big fan of using nail polish to transform accessories (and I always paint my cheap costume jewelry with clear nail polish when I first get it so they last longer), and these earrings are totally calling my name! The next time I see a pair of cheap studs at H&M or Forever 21, I’m going to do this. Pinterest link is here, and the original DIY post is here.
I love felt, and this beautiful felt anemone flower DIY is right up my street. It looks so elegant. And wouldn’t it be pretty on a hair clip or as a gift topper? Pinterest link is here, and the original DIY post is here.
This cactus pillow is just the epitome of summer decor to me. So fun! So cute! Or maybe on a bed? I just love it. It’s not a free pattern, but it’s thoroughly charming. Pinterest link is here, and the pattern page is here.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! Lila has a birthday party to attend, and we are going to do some cookie baking and put together valentines for her classmates. She’s been a little under the weather lately, so hopefully she is feeling up to it! What are you getting up to this weekend? Staying home and keeping cozy, or getting up to all sorts of things?
