Here are a few of my Favorite Things from this week.

Oh Kimba, you dear!! I can’t believe I forgot to comment on Tuesday, but I am so sad to see your DIY Day over, though I can only imagine how much time this will free up for you not having to wade through 350 entries (congrats on that by the way!) 🙂

You were the first link party I had ever participated in, the first I was ever featured on (and I was all “This lady is a really big deal!” to my husband), and I’m honored to be included in your last Favorite Things list. 🙂 Glad you liked the lamp, it was so easy…the second time around. 🙂

I’ll still be coming around to see what you’re up to! Love your blog. All the best!

Ooh, I LOVE that teacup photo! I aspire to take decent photos, but alas it’s a LONG process. 🙂 Have a great day.

I think that pink chandelier is just SO clever. Who would have thought boring old flowers baskets could be used that way??!
Do visit my blog, I’m having a giveaway!

Great picks, Kimba! Thanks again for all your DIY magic – Monday nights will never be the same again!

Oh, Kimba, I will so miss DIY Tuesdays. I have always been delighted to make your list every now and then, and now most honored to be on this last ‘Favorite Things’ post. It’s like the end of an era, I’m feeling quite empty ! But I understand how it must be so much work to manage! Looking forward to any impromptu ‘DIY Days’ in the upcoming months, should you be so inclined. Have the loveliest and most relaxing weekend !

Big hugs,

Oh! I didn’t even know you were having a ‘final’ DIY day. It was such fun, thanks so much for hosting. I had to take a DIY break due to budjet constraints, but I enjoyed participating when I could!!

I know how you feel about having more ‘freedom’ on your blogging schedule. I’ve been sharing a dating idea every friday night (trying to get a years worth of ideas) and I look forward to meeting that goal for the same reasons. 🙂 Come visit if you ever need a novel dating idea – when I get to #52 later this summer I’ll offer a GREAT give-away as well! 🙂

I guess great projects speak for themselves – I choose two of the same projects as favorites too! I will be sad to see DIY day go, but also excited to see what else you have up your sleeve 🙂
