Friday Finds & A Little Weekend Inspiration


Hi friends! How has your week been? Daylight savings time is still making my head spin a little. I am looking forward to the weekend! I have a few things I wanted to share with you.

All the cool training over at Pattern Observer is top notch. (And now I even work as a freelancer doing graphic design and social media on special projects.) Michelle over at Pattern Observer has some exciting news about the Textile Design Competition

Do you love to cook? I just got a new oven and finally I am reading my cookbooks with enthusiasm again. Do you have any favorites? I love these four.

Because I am a fan of vintage furniture, I loved reading this article, The Best Sites for Reclaimed, Vintage Furniture, over at Clementine Daily. 

Design*Sponge is one of my daily reads and now Max, one my faves over there, is moving to a new job. Check out his post My Favorite Posts & A Heartfelt Goodbye.

And I recently added Facebook to my brand pages. So now you can find me here:

Have a great weekend! xo
