Friday Favs 5

Heyyy!  Happy Friday!! Before we get to the favorites, just one note.  The winner of the Olive Leaf Stencil giveaway was chosen and emailed earlier this week. However, they have not yet claimed their prize.  The winner has until the end of the day to email me to claim their prize, otherwise another winner will be chosen.  So double check those inboxes and junk folders! are some things I'm loving on this week!

Fav #1
HGTV magazine.  How can it be that I don't subscribe to this yet?  I've bought each of the last three issues, and they are all far better than most of what I subscribe to.  I don't know why I'm surprised, I love HGTV.  Two of my magazine subscriptions are about to run out, and I know what they are going to be replaced with...ooh and they have a Kindle edition.  Perfect. 

Fav #2

This. Coffee. Cup.  Enough said. And I thought coffee couldn't get any better? Find it here.
Fav #3
3D Carving's fabulous Etsy shop.  3D Carving offers personalized laser engraved items that make really meaningful gifts.  Each order is custom made, and I can say firsthand that their service is excellent.  They offer a lot of cool products (bamboo utensils, picture frames, drum sticks), but my absolute favorites are the laser engraved cutting boards with customer's handwritten recipes. Imagine giving someone a cutting board with their mom's or grandmother's handwritten recipe actually engraved on it? Awesome.  We gave one of these as a gift to my mother in law (with her mom's handwritten recipe) last Christmas, and I have to say it was one of my favorite gifts we've ever given.  Seriously, check them out!!  And speaking of Christmas shopping.....
Fav #4
Stationary and notecards from Papyrus. They would make a wonderful gift for anyone! I love their boxed blank notecards so much!  Unfortunately there is not a store near my tiny town, so I only get to peruse the stores in person when I'm on vacation.  Most recently, I bought the Chloe Boxed Notes and they are gorgeous!  I prefer to buy notecards that are blank on the inside, so that they can used in any situation.  I can't tell you how often I am so grateful to have these adorable, blank notes on hand to use as a thank, get well, or thinking of you card.  But my favorite product is the Graphic Sea Life assortment of note cards.  I find myself buying this set over and over.   I even have a few set aside that I plan to frame in a kid's bedroom someday.  They are offering free shipping on orders $30 or more through Monday with the code HELLO!

Thanks for reading, and have a fabulous weekend!  


  1. There's an entire Papyrus store in the King of Prussia Mall.... sometimes on my break I go in there to just browse everything! You'd love it!

  2. I would too! I wish I got to KOP more often....or maybe it's a good thing that I don't?!

  3. The cutting board idea... amazing! What a thoughtful, special gift! I'll be keeping that on my radar for Christmas!

    Thanks for posting! :)
