I have not done a Friday Favorites post in ages but this week has been so full of little things that have made me happy that I felt compelled to share them with you. I'll start with this Blueberry Crumb Cake that I enjoyed with a chai latte in the studio with a friend this morning. That's the way to start off a day! It's also the last sweet treat of it's kind for me for awhile as I am starting on a doctor advised Gluten elimination diet. Any helpful tips welcome!
To inspire my creativity I am loving all the classes at the Creative Bug website! Well worth the $5 per month to access it all and you can try it out free for two weeks. How will I ever find time to do all of the classes that interest me?! Also, I am adoring these podcasts from Jooles at Sew Sweet Violet. It's like sitting down with a cozy, sweet friend and talking about crafty things.
With there being quite a lack of anything worth watching on television right now, we have been enjoying watching Season 1 of the BBC's Cranford. It's not quite Downton Abbey worthy, but it is charming and quirky and the actor that plays Carson is in it, and I happen to have a mad crush on him! We also watched the movie Big Stone Gap on Netflix with Ashley Judd which I loved! How did I not know that was a movie? What a happy surprise! Last weekend we saw Florence Foster Jenkins and laughed so hard! I don't know how, while sharing the screen with Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant, but the piano player steals the movie!
Last, but not least, while I'm holed up waiting for the arrival of autumn, I'm loving this candle. It's a bit of a splurge, but a worthy one. Some women love to buy shoes and clothes. I buy books and candles.
Happy weekend! I hope yours is full of favorite things!
