Friday Favorites

Happy Friday kids! So who else had a mega busy week? Yowza! Aaron and I finished up some pretty big tasks and started a bunch of little ones, what else is new? ;)   We had a great time putting together this week's AJ with J&A and are already gearing up for next week's. And we have a handful of super fun & cute tutorials planned for September that I think you'll really like. Gosh, I am so so ready for fall! I've been pinning lots and lots of Pumpkin recipes. Everything from Pumpkin Toffee Cheesecake ...Geez Louise! to Aunt Ruthie’s Butter-Crunch Pumpkin Bars, to Pumpkin Ice Cream! Oh yes and fabulous sweaters, and pretty Autumn scenery as well.  I mentioned that I'm an October baby right? :)

I'm totally ready for the weekend, ready for some baking, and organizing, and some movie watching. And of course blog hopping and wish list making. Speaking of...

This dress from Marc by Marc Jacobs is so up my alley. Totally channels my inner Wednesday Addams. I always go for black with sweet white collars. Part uniform, part storybook. Not for everyone...but this style really seems to be a go-to for me.  If I could sew you can bet I'd have a closet FULL of them.  Oh and I'm only dreaming far as owning this, well till money grows on trees.

I just adore this print. My current sentiments exactly!

This adorable DIY bunny pinata stole my heart! I would love to make one to hang in the studio! Isn't it beyond cute? 

This porcelain ring is too darn cool! It's like a gum ball machine prize for grown ups! : )

This kitschy & sparkly planter makes me really really happy.  When Aaron and I had an antique booth (years ago) we'd always come across these super fun "JUNK" items...most of the time vases. I used to scour ebay for them...and wow some went for a ton! Such cool time capsule pieces! 

Okie Dokie... Let the weekend begin!!

  1. Loving your finds this week!!! I absolutely loveeeeeeeeeee that planter!!! And I could so see you in that Wednesday Addams dress!! CUTE CUTE CUTE!!!!!!

  2. I am so with you on the pumpkin recipes. I could do a board of nothing but pumpkin recipes. A dream of mine has always been to open a restaurant that offers only pumpkin items. I would probably be the only customer though! haha! I adore that dress. Once my sewing skills start to improve I'm sure those would be filling my closet as well. Loving that planter by the way! Right up my kitchy alley.

  3. Fun, fun, fun! I have got to make one of those planters!

  4. Jenny... how do you find such adorable and cool items??!! Let out a gasp with the black dress.... and the planter is beyond amazing! Thanks for sharing!

  5. I would love to see a mosaic put together by you, I see lots of pink and blue funkiness involved. :)

    Happy baking!

  6. I can absolutely identify with the crazy busy week!

    That's how my week has been with the start of school.

    I'm looking forward to an afternoon/early evening of enjoying music with my fellow today.

    I'm ready for fall too! It is my absolutely favorite season. Everything is still so very green and warm here. I did manage to find a little mushroom that I just posted about. It was growing in a little spot of dead leaves and the pictures I took definitely channeled my eagerness for the season to officially arrive. It was like my own little patch of autumn. It was a splendid discovery amidst all the green of the area.

    I look forward to seeing the September DIY you have planned.
