friday finds & favorites #4

hey party people!

it's Friiiiiiiday which means that my weekend is coming up and I get to share some of my favorite things on the internet and in real life.

first off-- I am excited for this mini-project-- for people to share their dreams and for us to encourage them. please continue to email me, I'll post them next Thursday.

 this card by wit and wistle. how are high-waisted jeans cute but "mom jeans" are sooo not?

 i really want to make this strawberry basil jam... and jam in general.

- this skirt tutorial. the whole blog is FULL of great diys. if only I had more time...

more links:
- this blog filled with SO many photoshop tips. I'm obsessed. hat tip to Gina who linked it on her blog

this house for sale has a caboose guest house (photo 14-16)! if you live in Atlanta, please buy it!

this post about sometimes giving up the good.

this post about a Tim Gunn hosted fashion show (my dream) and some "what-not-to-wear" fashion tips -- like when you belt a dress, do it at your natural waist, not right under your you-know-whats.

good things in real life:

- a real life mariachi band at the day job for our cinco de mayo party.
- new fabric for new rouge & whimsy wristlets
- lovely things in the mail from a dear friend
- my Bible study who embrace being real & honest about life
- baby ducks in my neighborhood- eee!
- making working out a regular thing
- eating fresh strawberries
- drinking red wine + watching the help with the husband
