It’s Friday again, goodness where does the time go? I am happy to have you here for another “favorites on Friday” where I like to share my favorite finds from blogs, the web and more.
|My favorite things…magazines, tea and flowers.|
As I was looking through my long list of favorites for the week, two things became apparent, I must have been very hungry this week and I have vacation destinations on my mind.

This fabulous vacation home rental in the UK caught my eye, from It’s Overflowing and stunning photos from Cachemiere et Soie of her trip to the Bahamas makes me want to grab a fruity drink and plop down in the sand with a book.

Lost Past Remembered shared her wonderful holiday to the Peak Districk in the UK, as well as, the stunning country house that she stayed in, Manor Farm. This house seems as if it could be in a Jane Austen novel, it is romantic, authentic, and has beautiful gardens.

I discovered my dream cottage on It Looks Like White. If I did not mention it before one of my dreams in life is to live in a thatched cottage on a loch in Scotland. Although this cottage is not in Scotland, the cottage itself is what I am sure that I want mine to look like. It is beautifully decorated, has a wonderful garden and a thatched roof, what more could a girl ask for? I think you will enjoy this little gem so much you might like one of your own.
|Twigg Studios Lemon Tarts|
|Twigg Studios English Crumpets|
I have been a fan and a follower of Twigg Studios for a while and each and every time I visit I am in awe of the food, the photo styling and the blog. Both of these recipes for lemon tarts and English crumpets caught my eye this week.
|Cookie Crumbs and Sawdust|
I do not know about you but sometimes I get a craving for something and there is no stopping me until I have made it. This week it was cheesecake, so I will be making the above no-bake cheesecake from Cookie Crumbs and Sawdust this weekend. I have never tried a no-bake cheesecake before and am anxious to compare the taste to the traditional recipe.

Interior design fascinates me, the process, the client/designer relationship, the furniture, fabrics and more. If you are like me and would like to know which books are the “go to” books for information and inspiration than visit Susan and Lauren at Good Bones Great Pieces.
|Image from Things Your Mother Would Have Told You|
I discovered a new blog this week, Things Your Mother Would Have Told You. As you can tell from the title, which is also going to be a book, it is filled with information about cooking, baking, DIY and tid bits that have been passed from generation to generation. I cannot wait for the book!

And last but not least, this impressive project from Poppy Talk. Doesn’t this decoupage chest look like an interesting project? I have done a few small projects, like these pumpkins last year, but I am not sure that I am ready to tackle something this big. I will have to give it some thought.
As always I hope that you found something new and interesting, and if you have something to share please do. We all love new adventures, book, recipes and more.
Enjoy your weekend.
