Friday Favorites–Pinterest Finds

This week, I decided to share some of my favorites from my Pinterest boards.  I try not to visit every day, because if I did nothing else would ever get done.  Today though, I spent a LOT of time there.  My daughter called it procraftination.  Smart girl.

This canvas project from Virginia and Charlie has been popping up for a while.  I was surprised to find out when I tracked it back to the original post, she didn’t use glue, like all the pins say, and she didn’t paint it.  It’s puffy paint, and she left it white.  I still love it, and she shows some other versions she made as well.

I think I’ve mentioned this before, but a few years ago, we took our kids on an epic, two-week, cross-country road trip.  It was fantastic.  I’d love to embroider our path onto a map and frame it, like these from Martha Stewart.


I found this cute project recently.  It comes from a Hungarian blog, whose name, A Papír egy Csoda, Google translates as The Paper is a Miracle .  What a fun, beautiful way to fill the space under the stairs.


I love Christian Louboutin shoes.  You know, the high heels with the red soles?  And it’s really only because of those soles.  I could have something similar and sparkly for a fraction of a fraction of the cost with this tutorial from Could I Have That.


I like food with flavor, but not super-spicy.  Every once in a while though, I get in the mood for a jalapeno popper, and I think this Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich from BS’ in the Kitchen would be a delicious substitute.


These bags from Jump From Paper look like cartoons, but are actual bags.  They’re pretty pricey, but kind of adorable.


This Thin Mints sign from Etsy seller Atlas Signs is my most liked and repinned pin.  And oh-so true.


I had to do some serious digging and searching to find the originator of this shadow box car display, which is Work in Progress Kits.  Totally worth it.  I’m digging out my son’s old Hot Wheels right now.


We’ll wrap up this week with one of my favorite new quotes, courtesy of SomeEcards.
