Friday Favorites – Weekly Inspiration

Welcome to Friday Favorites, a series where we share our favorite decor, design inspiration, fashion finds, TV shows, recipes and more!

It was tax day for us this past week – never anyone’s favorite day! Between days of paperwork and my husband stressing and sweating (always!) it was a bit crazy. But yay for being done and not having to do them for another year, right?

Other than that I’ve been busy with my daughter visiting, planning some spring decor (coming next week!), and trying to plan our trip to Europe in May. This was a trip we were supposed to take in April of 2020 and had to cancel, and we’re finally rescheduling it! I’ll share more details as soon as I have them. 🙂

And now onto Friday Favorites – we’re sharing some fun spring decor and fashion finds this week!




This pretty modern farmhouse home tour is a breath of fresh air.

A few favorites I’ve found lately: this stunning bowl makes such a statement (and it’s 40% off!), I’ve been eyeing this faux olive tree (the 6′ size is on sale), I’m crushing on this whitewash wicker bowl – perfect for spring, I adore this unique vase (priced so well, too!), as is this beautiful chair.

Now that it’s spring, I like to lighten up our bedding. I’ve heard about these flax linen sheets from so many friends and finally ordered them, and I’m thinking of getting this cotton waffle blanket (it’s a dupe of the pricey Boll & Branch version)!

I also wanted to share this rustic terracotta vase (it’s a steal!)



Lately I’ve been spying so many cute outfits that involve red. I absolutely love a pop of red in an otherwise neutral outfit. Whether it’s a handbag, shoes, or even a jacket, it elevates the whole outfit!

Some favorites I found: this handbag is gorgeous, as is this more reasonably priced version. And I’m in love with these adorable flats (just ordered them!), these loafers could not be chicer, and this is the perfect pair of heels. Also, have you guys seen this cute flat from Amazon? I’ve seen so many people talk about these! They’re super chic and come in a bazillion colors (including red).

And if you want to make a bigger statement, you could get this blazer, or how cute would this trench coat look for spring? (half off!)

Something else I love in spring, crisp black and white – especially in the form of gingham! Every spring I’m always happy to see it reappear. I just bought this cute top, love this pretty blouse, as well as this gorgeous version (20% off)!

One last great find? This beautiful washable silk dress. This has such a great drape and it’s priced so well!



The Oscars are this weekend! Since we always host a get together, most years we try to at least watch the Best Picture nominees. However, we’ve only seen 6 of the 10! So far, my favorite movie of the year is Everything Everywhere All at Once. We also loved Top Gun and really liked The Fabelmans, but I have to admit, it’s not my favorite year.

Did you see any movies you really loved?



I’m a lemon lover, and I also love cheesecake, so this Lemon Cheesecake is definitely a favorite! It’s lighter than most other cheesecakes and super easy (you don’t even need a mixer!)

Plus, it’s perfect for Easter or Passover! You can get the printable recipe here. 



This is one of my very favorite Instagram accounts to follow! So much European goodness. 🙂


If you cleaned out your closet recently and have some coats you were going to donate, the group One Warm Coat is doing amazing things. I wish I’d known about them sooner!

Do you know about the 10/30 rule? I had never heard of it but I’ve implemented it and it works!

    Hi Sheila, I love your Friday emails. They are always full of helpful ideas. I am shopping for throw pillows. Can you share your favorite on line sources for pillows.


    1. Hi Becky!! Yay, I’m so happy to hear that – thank you so much! I’ve shared lots of pillows in Friday Favorites as I’m sure you know, but I have my favorites (style and sellers) in The Maison de Cinq Shop. Here’s the link:

      Hope that helps!
