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!

Well, spring is here! After weeks (actually, months!) of rainy, wet, windy, crazy weather we’re headed for the most perfect weather this weekend and I can’t tell you how happy it’s made me! Just seeing the sun the last few days has been such a mood lifter.

And all of my kids will be home for Easter this year, which is probably the first time in several years as once they were in college, their spring breaks never aligned with each other and/or with the holiday. I’m looking forward to spending time outside, doing some hiking, and of course, eating some delicious food with my favorite people! 🙂




I don’t remember when I came across this charming farmhouse in the wine country, but I can tell you I’ve been dreaming about it ever since. See the whole home here.


Nothing screams warm weather to me more than all things rattan and wicker, especially in the home. How about a pretty seagrass wrapped vase, this waste basket is about the cutest one I’ve ever seen, and this woven storage ottoman is awesome and such a steal!

I just ordered this floral pillow from Pottery Barn – I love the blue and green together! It would look amazing mixed with this pretty one, too.

If you got my email all about Spring Porches this week, you know that I haven’t done anything about mine yet, which of course, has me looking to refresh it a bit. I love this simple but pretty doormat (on sale), thinking of getting this gorgeous outdoor light to replace my worn out ones, and I’m so in need of a new planter! Still currently looking because I need a pretty large one and they can be pricey, but I did find one I’m totally obsessed with – this planter would look so good on an outdoor coffee or dining table!

And does it get any Frencher than colored glasses for summer? I love these goblets and they’re priced so well and come in 3 pretty colors (tumblers are here).



Is there anything cuter than a little white dress? Versatile and pretty, they’re the very essence of spring. This one is so pretty, and this one is so good, too –  and under $50!

You know how much I love linen, and this week I found so many good pieces! This plaid linen dress (40% off) is adorable, love the versatility of this linen slip dress, and this white linen skirt gets rave reviews and is on sale for under $40!

This sleeveless ruffle top (above) could not be cuter and is 40% off (I ordered the black and the gingham, but the French blue is gorgeous!), and you can never go wrong with a white linen shirt! It’s a classic.

This gorgeous suede wedge is 40% off and would go with anything, and this well-priced leather sandal was last week’s best seller by far!



This new show called Transatlantic comes out today and looks so up my alley. I love period dramas and history, and it’s shot on location in Germany and France. Seems very promising!



Eating a little lighter and healthier, including eating more fish, is on my list of things to do for spring (and summer swimsuit season!) This Salmon with Asparagus with Lemon Garlic Butter Sauce looks amazing and could not be easier!

If you celebrate Easter and are looking for a light and delicious but easy-to-make-dessert, be sure to try my Lemon Cheesecake. I will for sure be making this on Sunday!

My new favorite travel bottles – could not love these more. They’re silicone so you can squeeze out every last drop, and are easily refillable!
