Friday Finds

It's Friday and time to link up with Random Five Friday and Friday Finds.

1. What a thrill to find an envelope from Amy of Four Corners Designs in my mailbox this week! Her repurposed stationary caught my eye on her blog and she was having a give away. I will write myself a letter on the one that says 'rediscover'(y) since that is my word for the year. How cool is that? You can read the amazing story about my word here.


2. I also found a few Christmas goodies that missed the 'put away' last week end. I'm still in love with this tiny stocking I made four years ago when I was feeling tangibly creative.
How did I miss these?

3. Hubby had enough 'points' to cash in so we helped ourselves to a carpet cleaner (baby girl makes messes) and a bread machine. We are beginning gluten free (mostly free) eating habits. This is our first loaf. It's quite good since I added rosemary to it. Makes it yummy but it doesn't go to well if you want to put honey on it.
Makes good toast.

4. I'm making another attempt this year to work through one room a month, whether it's just cleaning out junk or redecorating. I'm picking up where I left off last year. Feb 2013 Room #2. I found this 'dripping candle' that we brought out every Christmas until we weren't able to buy the candles any more. I'm guessing that was about six years ago. I through it out. But not before I took a photo of the bottom. Very cool. I'll need to mess with that on my iPad. I think my wing-man word for this year is 'purge'.

5. Back to food. I cooked purple potatoes this week. Very tasty and they came with a little love.

  1. i love the little purple potato that looks like a heart. I eat gluten free and have bought Udi's bread in the frozen section of the market. I used to have a bread maker but got rid of it when I moved since I had stopped eating most bread.

  6. LOL! I love the heart potato! AND the Santa decoration. I'd be tempted to leave it out all year! I have not gone completely gluten free, but have scaled back my white flour obsession a lot. It's made a lot of difference in my health. :-)

  7. That bread does look good. And it's so true ... we always seem to miss some Christmas ornament in the great putting away. I have a goal of really cleaning one room at a time until the whole house is done. What I've achieved so far? One closet {with the help of my husband.} :-D
