FRIDAY FINDS

So happy to be bringing you some Friday Finds today. We have enjoyed the most perfect week of summer weather and although I've been flat out catching up on work, I've been taking every possible moment to soak up the summer goodness because I know how fleeting it is.

I love looking at dream properties as much as the next person, but sometimes it's nice to see something in a more approachable size. Deborah Silver recently redid a small property that I think is really typical of a lot of yards. Here's her first post on it. I can't wait to see the "after."

This blueberry crostata from House of Hawthornes needs to be had by me.

Have you been following the massive driveway renovation project that Linda and Mark at Each Little World are undertaking? When I visited their beautiful gardens earlier this summer and Linda mentioned the project I had no idea just how vast the scale of the project was. It's worth a look to follow everything that goes into a really well planned out project.

You know I love staghorn ferns (mostly from afar because they require a fair amount of attention that I rarely give houseplants). Check out Sarah's beautiful wabi sabi-inspired staghorn fern mounting.

Let's just say this style is not for me. What about you? Who's up for dyeing their armpit hair?

This is my summer jam. Would you believe I heard about this band on NPR and probably listened to this song 400 times on auto replay on my phone before it jumped out of my hands into the lake? Let that little ditty start of a great summer weekend for you!

On tap for me this weekend? A whole bunch of nothing. Leaving for our big sailing race is all-consuming so everything else in life is pushed aside leading up to that. Now that I'm home, I've got some serious gardening to do and I'm going out on the paddleboard for the first time this year if it kills me (and given the water temperature of Lake Michigan it just might). What's on your docket?
