Saturday Finds!!

woot woot for Saturday!!! I slept in...until 4:00....then forced myself back to sleep until after 5:00...sure signs that I'm getting

I chuckled when I came across this
Dutch Babies recipe. It was one of the first recipes we made in Home Ec...remember that ladies? Home Economics...I think that was in what, middle school or was that high school? Okay, needless to say it was a long time ago...

Etsy is truly a feast for the much too see and not enough time to see it all. Daisy Pink Cupcake had some sweet Etsy finds posted the other day...

Decor8 showcased thee sweetest home, and then I found out it is in Seattle! Here's another Decor8 post with textiles. Right out of high school I went to community college and started in their Interior Design program...I've always had a fascination for fabrics...patterns...texture...well, I ended up with a General Business degree because I wasn't focusing enough on my ID classes...ahhh, to be young and btw, my General Business degree was a non-transferrable one...what in the heck was I thinking? When I went back to school in 2003, I had to go back to community college to get some reqs out of the way and then graduated from the University of Washington with an Interdiscplinary Arts & Sciences degree with a concentration in Psychology...What happened to the ID? I think it is all coming out now in my craftiness:)

Have you heard of Kindred?

I've been following Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic blog...she is sooo open and honest, really quite refreshing.

How about Orange
has some FREE printables for you...Here's a fun tut on LollyChops. It absolutely CRACKS me up when the men folk take over the blog....

has some great organizing inspiration AND a Storables coupon! Pink Wallpaper has some organizing eye candy too.

Material Girls
has some great pieces showcased some fun pieces of furniture.

Okay, I actually still have a ton of linkies but I'll save them for another day. My schedule has been wonky this week since it is Spring Break...I had shorter work days but definitely didn't work on a ton of projects so I'll be doing that this morning before a soccer game {it's bucketing outside right now...sigh...and yes, it is a mucky muddy field that they play in} and on Easter :) Sunday's project {yes, it'll be a Scor-it project} may not post until Sunday


  1. Thanks for the link! I used to have all of Rachel Aswell's books and my other house (more like a small cottage!) I tried to do 'Shabby Chic'. This house is modern, no Shabby Chic, but I still like to look at the 'comfort' stuff!

  2. Hey!!! Your linkies are freakin awesome!!!! My favorite blog now is How about orange! Thanks! I need to start waking up at 4 or 5am to read all my blogs. Happy Easter!!!!!

  3. Great post, Amy! I went to Interior Design school too for about a year in NYC! I never got to finish because work got in the way (I went back to school for that about 6 years ago). I'd love to finish it up some day, but just don't have the time these days! But, like you, I think it comes out in my craftiness now :).

  4. Hi Amy! WOW, thanks for all the links! HAVE A HAPPY EASTER!
