Five Friday Favorites #3

It's been a weird week for me, at least in terms of my work life. I worked from home Tuesday because of a leak in the bathroom, had to leave early on Wednesday because of the leak, had to leave early on Thursday to meet at our home site, and I spent a good chunk of the day on Friday packing up my office so I can move down the hall. Definitely didn't get enough time for actual work squeezed in there. But I'm still happy today is Friday, since really, how can you not be happy on a Friday?? Here are some things I'm loving this week...

Favorite DIY planters: How easy and adorable are these little brick succulent planters?  Grab some construction bricks with holes in them and plunk in a succulent and a candle. Done!

Favorite patio: I've always loved outdoor string lights and have been obsessing over them even more than usual since my trip to Austin, where they seem to be on every block. I think this lovely, rustic patio looks like it's right out of a fairy tale.

Favorite fabrics: I'm nerdtastically excited about HGTV's new line of fabrics at Joann, which I just heard about thanks to this post by Infarrantly Creative. I like Joann since they always seems to have great sales and coupons, but sometimes their fabric selection can be a little blah. This new line from HGTV has lots of fun, modern prints.

Favorite drink: It's a lovely, sunny spring day, and I'm in the mood for sippin' on sangria in the sunshine (as well as alliteration, apparently). This recipe is a unique take on white sangria, featuring strawberries and fresh basil.

Favorite jewelry: Loving the look of a big gold cuff (and wearing one today!) - a great statement piece to have in your collection, and it goes with just about anything.

Have a fantastic weekend! 


  1. That is a collection I can certainly get into! Sangria and ALL! Love the patio and those brick candle holders are SWEET! I am glad to have found you on the Hump Day Hop! I am totally following!

    1. Thanks, Heather! The hump day hop is so much fun - I've missed the last few but am glad to get back into it! Thanks for cohosting this week! I'm so excited about following you too!!
