Glad to be back for Friday Finds this week. Blogland is humming these days; it seems like autumn has everyone in the mood for some seriously creative projects.

First off, if you missed my review of the most empowering yard tool I've ever used (which was posted late last night because of an a.m. / p.m. scheduling mistake), make sure you check it out.

Um, no.

This house .... um, yes. Please.

I've tried so many recipes for oven fries and I'm always disappointed. Yes, I'll try one more.

Our doggy feeding station.

Check out the tables, stools and sliding doors on this site. So beautiful. And they match our dog feeding stand!

The One-Room Challenge is going on, in which bloggers fix up one room in six weeks and blog about it weekly. I have a hard time finishing projects in six months, much less six weeks. Suffice to say, you won't catch me taking that on, but it's fun to follow. I'm particularly enjoying following the projects of bloggers who are playing along but are not necessarily part of the official ORC team.

Lots to do here this weekend: more garden cleanup, cleaning out the basement (seriously, I've been saying I was going to clean out the basement for three years now, but I'm really going to do ... probably), and maybe another trip to a tile store for a little bathroom inspiration. What's on your agenda?


  1. I still want to know how you liked the kale pesto...
    Oven fries. Don't even get me started. Pinterest propaganda. I didn't read the recipe but toss some corn starch with them and that will help.

  2. Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.

    Keep Posting:)

  3. So the plan was to work in the garden and garage all weekend getting everything ready for winter. But best laid plans and all BFF's husband is coming down to install the long awaited back splash in the kitchen. I'm in for that after 3 years of waiting!!! But I hear the weather is supposed to be nice this coming week - so I'll be out there getting it done then.
