Friday Favorites 28

It’s Friday once again, the last Friday of July and that means Friday Favorites. I hope you all are enjoying this weekly series I’m doing. It’s a fun way to share what I’m seeing around the web, as well as any products I’m using as well. There is always inspiration if we look for it! It’s been a normal week around here, we’re continuing to enjoy our pool every single day and spend a big part of our day outdoors.

Feature Friday

Check out the Feature Friday for The Brick Nests, these ladies are definitely worth seeing again.

Instagram Inspiration

Cute cottage alert! Meet Janice with Jubilee Haven Cottage in Ontario, Canada. Is this the cutest cottage on the water? You’ll have to go over and check out her feed for more of this sweet newly built cottage.

With views like this, I’d never leave this place!


I just stumbled on Brunch With Babs recently and she’s apparently doing something right, with 1.2 million followers. She’s a grandma who shares recipes, travel and more. Go check out this spunky lady!

This Lemon Orzo Pasta salad from Farraro Kitchen looks delicious, with corn added as well as lots of good stuff for summer.

These pull apart Italian sliders from Half Baked Harvest look SO delicious and easy too! Perfect for a crowd.

Ballard Designs is having a 30% off sale right now on indoor and outdoor furniture. I rarely see them do more than 20%, so this is huge! This porch swing is pretty sweet!

They’ve got pages of up to 70% off right now too, so check that out. This basket set is part of the sale.

TJ Maxx online is fun to browse and I’ve been shopping locally at Homegoods for summer clearance sales. They’re really good right now in the stores too! These cushions from Martha Stewart are a good deal.

These seagrass baskets are on sale too,so cute for summer.

Great deal on this set of 2 planters. 

Set of 2 indoor/outdoor pillows are a good deal.

This set from Martha Stewart is so cute too.

Love this stainless cup with lid by Rae Dunn for the pool or beach.

What We’re Watching

We just watched a good documentary about Italy on Amazon that I’d recommend. I went to Italy 30 years ago and have always wanted to go back. If the world ever gets halfway back to normal, that’s going to be a destination for me and Mark to visit. I love Italy! Englishman James May: Our Man in Italy gives a good overview of the country, but not from the typical tourist traps. He covers lots of interesting destinations in Italy that are off the beaten path.

If you like action packed spy thrillers, CIA mysteries, with lots of killing and violence, don’t miss The Gray Man on Netflix with Ryan Gosling (he’s the skilled CIA operative on the loose). I can watch these kinds of movies, but if heavy artillery and shooting bothers you, skip it. We both enjoy a good thriller and this one delivers! I also really like Ryan Gosling as an actor.
