Friday Faves

* A song: one of my favorites - "Say Hey!" by Michael Franti

* Great Read: The Long Chalkboard and Other Stories by Jenny Allen

* Incredibly beautiful blog: beautifully-made

* Image of the week: interior in Bozcaada, Turkey by Baris Aktinmas

* A post: This will make you want to get out your glitter - Why Everybody Needs to Make Art

* Taste Treat: lemon squares

* PINspiration: Home Organization! by Inna Olimpiyuk

* Quote of the Week: "It all works out on the end.  (And if it hasn't worked out, it's not the end.)" ~ Meri

* Great Advice:  iPhone rules

* Funniest Moment: Sloane and I were playfully bickering over whether or not a cucumber was a fruit.  I said no way, but she maintained that if it had seeds and juice it was a fruit.  I said, "Says who?"  Her reply was, "The National Fruitographic Society."

Happy weekend, friends.

Again a great list.
Lemon squares are always yummy and feel like a touch of sunshine.
The thoughts on creativity and art got me thinking.
What a beautiful blog, I bookmarked that one to return again and again.
Happy weekend, dear friend.

Hey friend!
Enjoyed scanning through your lists.
I especially loved the great advice about the iPhone.
Also good to hear you and Sloane engage in playful bickering, signs of a great relationship!

Relyn, this is such a great post and so much to investigate in it! I have to say I especially love this quote! What a funny answer from Sloane. She has sure grown alot since I first visited your blog! Happy new year to you too, and thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

Hi Relyn! Love this list and I'm going to check out the links. You always share cool stuff. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by my kitchen blog and for the sweet comments. :) It is nice to know you're missed. I've been struggling with the whole blogging thing (I posted about it today, actually) but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things again. A new design and hopefully some new ideas to get me going!

Hope you all are feeling much better now and that 2013 will be a year of many blessings for you and your family!

"National Fruitographic Society" - love that!!

I love that quote. It's one of my favorite lines from the movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (which, if you haven't seen, I highly recommend).

Happy 2013!

Roban said...

I saw Elizabeth's comment about The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and agree that it's worth the time to watch it. Thanks for the great links, Relyn; have a good weekend!

A very happy new year, Relyn! I hope 2013 brings you and your familyi much joy. Funnily enough, last night a friend told us about the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, and that wonderful quote! Synchronicity.

Incredible photo! I love your lists. I know -- I'm redundant with that, but I do!

And, you motivated me to write a new Chopsticks post -- first since April! Thanks!

Oldies, but Goodies
