Frilling Friday: 4/29/11

Happy Friday! 

I’m bummed that I missed last Friday’s Frilling post, but really, it was due to circumstances beyond my control.  The silver lining is that I have a LOT of fun things to share with you today.  The most FRILLING being the Royal Wedding!  The DRESS!  It’s divine!

This morning I’ve been watching coverage of the Royal Wedding over on the BBC.  Did you wake up early to watch?  It would have been 3 a.m. here on the West Coast, so I’m just watching highlights. Ok, on to other fun things, like…

Animal Hands!

I have never seen anything done in cross stitch that I actually thought was cool. Until now.

I find it off-putting when my favorite bloggers sell out team up with big companies for advertising.  I usually love her content and hers, but lately it’s been riddled with big-name sponsorships.  Of course, maybe I’d be singing a different tune if I were being offered thousands of dollars to advertise products on youFRILLme. What do ya’ll think of this? 

My MIL gave me a gift card to Anthro with which I purchased this FRILLING skirt, which I’m thinking will delight me for years to come.  I am now taking suggestions on how to style it, although I have a few ideas of my own.

This quilt looks super cute.  Somebody get busy and make one (and send photos!).

Get a load of these 11 Mom-drobe essentials over at Aint No Mom Jeans.

An inspiring bike trip.

I see herringbone tights in my future.

Our dear friends gave us a copy of this Charley Harper Alphabet book, and it is BEAUTIFUL.

I invented this lovely spring soup.

The perfect watch.

Victoria’s Fab Friday for this week is just what my eyes were hungry for: red!

I could squander a lot of time looking at this site.

A Flower crown!

The most adorable studio.

Frilling Friday: 3/11/11

Happy Friday!
Guess who slept 8 hrs last night?!  MY BABY.  my very own baby.  Of course, I myself wasn’t actually allowed to sleep 8 hrs due to a barrage of early morning texts from family members who shall remain nameless, who got overexcited about the tsunami that hit the West Coast this morning, posing absolutely no danger to San Francisco (unless you happened to be surfing).  Grrrrrr from a Mama who hasn’t slept a full night in four months.  However, after looking at the news and seeing the terrible destruction that happened to the folks in Japan, I won’t be too upset over a little lost sleep in comparison.

I’ve been thinking about Lent, looking inward, reflecting, and doing some spring cleaning, mentally, emotionally, and in my home. That said, here are some FRILLING things I found this week:

Carrie’s ideas for celebrating Lent with kids, including this Lenten calendar project.
Project Simplify, from Simple Mom.
Martha Stewart’s Spring Cleaning Checklist; I mean, I prolly won’t do all that stuff, but…
These little boats by Ann Wood Handmade are so lovely and creative, I can’t stop staring at them.



Aurelia introduced me to Sweet Potato Black Bean Tacos and they are yum, light, springy (hint: I would tweak this recipe by adding pickled jalepenos to the slaw).
I’m drooling over Anthropologie’s dinnerware collection—love the colorful pallete and vintage-inspired designs.
Affordable and stylish: poster art
Oh how I love pom-poms ! (via poppytalk)  These make me so happy:

Have a happy weekend!
