Ok, ok I chose that name. It’s cute and cheesy and it totally fits the shortened versions of my goal for these Friday posts vs my epic long novels that I like to write.
Every week I want to try and share some weekend reading, random acts of kindness, links to projects, products, people or blogs I love etc. Or maybe even tell a small story along with it. I look forward to these posts from my favourite bloggers so much that I thought it was high time I do my own.
This week’s RAK was the week of curbside side finds. I don’t know about you, but curbside finds are one of my favourite ways to Pay It Forward. Someone gave away an entire kitchen (no joke, cabinets and all) but I missed getting a photo of it before it was all collected by eager neighbours. And I came across a kids climber.
It inspired us to help pass along some of our items, so we wound up giving away a bike hitch trailer, bags and bags of kids clothes, some household supplies including a window as well as a baby carrier and cover which helped out an upcoming new mom. So if you have anything in your home that you think someone else could use, I encourage you this weekend to put out your own curbside find or donation and help pay it forward to a new home.
In other notes:
So happy to see Karen is back! The blogging world is not the same without her.
Summer’s almost over but you should really take advantage of the last of this warm outdoor time and check out the Endless Summer Projects series.
If you’re Canadian Design or Lifestyle Blogger are you headed to BlogPodium? Poppytalk did a write up on what it’s all about and how you can even save 10% through her website on tickets.
Cutest damn DIY Garden Gnomes ever!
I had to get this in my last trip to IKEA. Their new HUSET dollhouse furniture. I don’t know if I am going to make a dollhouse to match it yet.
Ever meet someone on Twitter and realize that they’re exactly you, just in a different country. Meet Alex from Hydrangea Girl and go show her some love!
And you know what? Sometimes it’s OK to take a break from it all.
See you next week! I’ve got an ongoing outdoor adventure with a certain someone who is obsessed with a certain wagon that I have to tend to.
