Favorite Things Friday!

Welcome to Favorite Things Friday!  If you are new here, go see some simple instructions here.  Look at what treats we had last week:

Laura from Along for the Ride makes pretty flowers from meaningful handkerchiefs.  Go see her tutorial and all of the pretty things she makes with them on her blog.

One of my favorite things: scrapbooks!  I know I featured them last week, but Crystal from Thingamabobs and Doodads did such a cute job on this 8x8 scrapbook:

This one is for my mom.  We were talking about how creative people are on these links from Favorite Things Friday and she was especially impressed with Jax at Aly and Ash.  She makes these shirts with a bleach pen!

I just don't know how you guys think of these things!

On the earlier topic of scrap-booking, Michele over at The Scrap Shoppe made some ATC's with an Alice in Wonderland theme...I thought this was great, since I know for so many of you Alice in Wonderland is a favorite.

One of my favorite things to see online is beautifully decorated nurseries.  Amy from Me, Myself, and I just finished her daughter's nursery, and it is adorable.  Go see the before and afters on her blog.

Tracy from Tracy's Trinkets and Treasures made this basket:

Wicker baskets are my new best friends, living in an apartment and needing extra places to put things.  Doesn't it look like it was expensive?  She did a great job.

If you would like to see an amazing bathroom before and after (and budget friendly) go to Show and Tell.

I am totally going to make one of these ruffle shower curtains one day...she shows you how to do it in the post too!

Jess from A Winding Road is an amazing seamstress.  I LOVE all of her bags...this one is one of my favorites:

Now its your turn to share some of your favorites!
