Good morning! Happy Friday and happy day after St.Patricks day! Did you enjoy any celebrations, parades, tasty food and perhaps some beer? We did not imbibe in any beer but we did have Ruben sandwiches, in which the corned beef was cooked in Guinness stout and, I did enjoy a Guinness Stout brownie or two afterward. They might be the best chocolate brownies I have ever eaten!

By the way Guinness Stout Cake wasn’t too bad either.
My “Friday Favorites” are all over the place this week but I hope that you find something new and interesting!

Suzanne at Privet & Holly is not only a talented writer but she has one of the kindest, gentlest souls in blogland. I never, ever leave her blog without feeling uplifted, smiling and a better person. How wonderful to have that gift. This week she wrote a beautiful post entitled Fingerprints that I think you will love.

I have followed Brooke and Steve from Velvet and Linen for a long time and have enjoyed their beach house, their former house and the building of their dream house Patina Farm. Their fabulously photographed second book is out and you can read this great review by another favorite blogger Erin at Elements of Style.

Speaking of books and book lovers, this book cottage from Hooked on Houses would be perfect for me! I do not even need anything else because it has it all, bedroom, small kitchen, bath and walls and walls of books

I am a huge fan of Liberty of London and thought this saddlebag featuring their iconic prints would be a perfect addition to my wardrobe.
Thank you so very much to all of the people who left comments and took the time to email me about the Caregiving post I wrote this week. I am overwhelmed by your compassion and your stories. At the end of the day the world is indeed a very small place and we are all trying to life our lives to the best of our abilities; sometimes we fail, sometimes we strive but at the end of the day we are trying to be the best we can be for ourselves and our family and friends.
I hope that you have a great weekend! Enjoy!
