New feature: Friday Favorites, January 8 2010

Here’s a new feature I thought I’d try out – I’m calling it “Friday Favorites”, and every Friday (that’s the goal, at least) I’ll share links to blog posts and articles which I’ve particularly enjoyed in the past week.   The links will run the gamut from knitblogs to current events, big famous bloggers to little ones like myself.  I hope you enjoy!

Bright Side Dweller posted what may be the cutest outfit I’ve ever seen, and I absolutely fell in love with her shoes.  Naturalizer has a couple similar styles right now, and I think I’m headed to the mall tonight after work! 🙂

Design*Sponge shared a couple of amazing before and afters.  The bell jars are just brilliant – I can’t wait to thrift some old clocks and try it out for myself!  And that play kitchen is adorable – one to file away for a few years down the road 😉

I’ll be trying Smitten Kitchen’s caramel pudding recipe (with skim milk!) this weekend.  Wish me luck!

It’s Not All Mary Poppins wrote an amazing post on too much empathy in dealing with little ones’ minor owies.  I wish I’d read this when I was still teaching!  I’m afraid that I was definitely a coo-er.

LOVE this barn photo (and all the others posted, too!) discovered by TYWKIWDBI and originally posted on Der Spiegel.

Windows Assistant just flat-out made me LOL.

An amazing post by Historic Stitcher on the disposable nature of clothing in today’s society.

Vegetarian mushroom barley soup? Yes, please!  Thanks to Two Peas and Their Pod.

Here’s a drop-dead-beautiful outfit posted by The Hidden Seed.  I adore everything about it!

Matt Logelin shared photos from the North Shore of Lake Superior (and his adorable daughter Madeline).  Was my first time seeing it in the dead of winter, and WOW.  Still love that area.

Sal with Already Pretty shared her outfit list method of dressing and planning, and it’s going to change my life.

The Glamorous Grad Student posted an amazingly helpful tutorial on how to buy boots that won’t look dated after just one season.  I was glad to see that all of my pairs meet her criteria (or sidestep them entirely :-P)

Have a good weekend, everyone!  Anybody got any big plans?

(I’ll be getting a haircut, taking my black boots in to be re-heeled, and hitting up a few thrift stores.  Does the excitement never end? :-D)
