My Favourite Pins This Week
This salad looks so darn delicious I would eat this any time, not just for breakfast. Packed with good-for-you proteins, veggies and a bit of fat to help you feel full- If you need me, I”ll be at the grocery store getting the fixings for this salad.

I love S’mores everything, so these chocolate chip biscuit S’mores look heavenly! And get this- the whole recipe only has 4 ingredients. They look so much more decadent and complicated than that, but you could pull this off easy-peasy. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
I have thought about putting pipe cleaners in my knitted toys to make them pose-able, but this is a great tutorial on exactly how to go about it- with something more sturdy than pipe cleaners! It would work for crocheted toys and knitted toys, too. Pinterest link is here, and the original post is here.
I think I’m especially smitten with this vintage cart makeover because it contains a giant pile of yarn. Who wouldn’t want a beautiful, artfully displayed yarn collection in a lovely upcycled cart? It doesn’t have to be a revamp of a vintage piece, either- you could do this with an metal storage cart. Pinterest link is here, and the original DIY post is here.
I adore this stunning watercolour painting by Michelle Morin. It’s like the rich beauty of late summer, in all it’s golden green glory, captured in a frame. Pinterest link is here, and the original artist’s site is here.
