On Fridays I recap some fantastic finds from around the world wide web.

Happy Weekend!

great FABRIC: birch fabrics are probably one of my newest loves. They make organic cotton that is just lovely. They have a bunch of new lines coming out this Fall that are just awesome (and finally something for the boys in my house!)

to whet your APPETITE: We eat a lot of mexican in our house and these mini tacos look great (might even satisfy the smallest of us here)

be NATURAL and NEAT (as in organized): One of my goals for when school starts back is to be a bit more creative with lunches for my 3 that leave this house everyday. I have a love-hate relationship with this lunch storage. I love the idea, hate the plastic boxes…wondering a way to take something like this and tweak it to fit our lunch stuff

a TUTORIAL to do: This reversible bucket hat by oliver + s is ADorable! If only I had time to get it done before we left for the beach (along with like a million other things!)

AWESOME embroidery: Sarah Jane debuted a new fabric collection with a sea theme and I knew she would come out with some awesome embroidery patterns. She did not disappoint. The mermaid would be awesome in the kid’s bathroom and my son would love the ship.

something to SEW: love this “good morning sunshine” pillowcase! Would be a great way to use of scraps and practice applique.

to TRIM my house with: One day our back porch is going to look like this. I might be 75 years old before it happens, but at least I’ll have a comfy place to sit!

INSPIRATIONAL: In an effort to be more intentional about special days, I just love this idea of having friends sign a tablecloth at parties and other special times and then embroidering them. How fun would that be at a rehearsal dinner or something fun when your kids are grown?

CUTE: This giant, magnetic scrabble board is too awesome!
