Friday Favorites: A Few Odds & Ends

Frankly Noted - Etsy

This week stressed me out. There wasn't just one thing but a full to do list. One of my favorite sayings is "This too shall pass" and once again I find myself muttering the words softly to myself. What I have on my plate is manageable and for that I'm grateful. Very grateful. It just needs to time to see it's see it's self through. 

This weekend should bring a lot of fun my way!! For all you Doctor Who Fans and Jessica Jones fans, I'm going get to meet David Tennant and Matt Smith at Wizard Con in Manhattan!! More to come next week on that! Then I have a 60th birthday celebration for Craig's Aunt! 

On Sunday, I have a very very special 91st birthday celebration for my grandmother!! God bless her, seriously! I never thought I'd be this lucky to have her in my life this long. I hope it's a good day. I really do! 

It's going to be jam-packed but luckily there is Red Bull and Tea!! =)  

Here are a Few Odds & Ends to Finish Off the Week!

I found myself looking up a lot of tea this week and here are some of my favorite finds!

A Mini Tea Collage
Tea Drop Sampler - Uncommon Goods
Fisherman Tea Bag Holder Set - Urban Outfitters
Plum & Bow Elephant Tea Mug - Urban Outfitters
Cat Couple Mug - Urban Outfitters
Kennerton Teapot - Anthropologie

I love the fisherman tea bag holder!! It's so cute! 

Another thing that caught my eye was guitar bookcases, but Shhh! I can't let my husband see these because he'd probably cry. I would only do it to a guitar that's has lost its way and cannot be saved. =)

Onto the flea markets and rummage sales I go to find an old guitar!! =)

I love this Terranium from Shrimp Salad Circus! 

DIY Flower Terranium - Shrimp Salad Circus

I also loved this DIY for old baking tins! =)

Last but not least I love this marquee!! 

Have a Great Weekend!!!
