Friday Favorites – Week 13


Hi everyone! Hope you all enjoy your Friday!  And thanks for coming by once again to link up your posts!
By the way, next week, in addition to linking up for our Friday Friday event, you can also come by for my Sweet Thursday Dessert event.  The theme for the event this month is cupcakes & muffins, and I’d love for you to come join the party and share your posts with us. (Linky will be up on Wednesday night. Current and older posts are welcome!)
Also, if you’re interested in winning some custom print brochures for your home or business ($60 value), the giveaway has less than 50 entries at this writing, and it ends next Tuesday, so this might be a good chance to get in and win a giveaway!
Now let’s take a look at this week’s featured posts!  If you’re post is featured, please grab my “featured” button for you blog.  (If you need assistance with this feel free to send me an email, and I’ll help you!)

Cinderella has always been one of my favorite fairy tails (and one of my favorite Disney movies!).  I just love these little carriages from Melanie’s Crafts. So adorable and just perfect! 

I’ve always been fascinated by old ledgers and record books from farmers and shop keepers. (Yes, I’m that nerdy!)  And I was equally impressed by this modern day version at My Frugal Lifestyle.  With a garden journal you can keep up with things like brands of seeds that you use, planting times, fertilizer types, growing times, etc.  Very neat! 
Here’s another confession.  As a kid I had a huge hair bow collection, which I just so happen to still own.  (They’re currently packed up in our outbuilding.)  And I had bow holders, but I didn’t have anything like this one at the Tremaine Story.  I think this is such a simple, yet very creative way to display hair bows.  And I’m sure these look really cute in kid’s room. 

I don’t know about you, but around here it’s the perfect weather for strawberry cake, and this one from The Domestic Engineer Blogs looks super delicious!

And more cake!  I actually never had carrot cake until I got to be an adult.  I was on an airplane and they served carrot muffins.  (Maybe it’s just because I was starving, but I swear, that was the best muffin I’ve ever had!)  And shortly thereafter I decided to try some carrot cake, which was awesome!  And now I’m totally craving a piece of this carrot cake from Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice!

Linky time! Please link up below using the url of your actual post (not your blog), and please link back to Simply Sweet Home, so that others can come to the party! Thanks!
