Aren't you glad it's Friday? 

It was a short work week here in Canada since we get Easter Monday off! 

This is what tickled my fancy this week:

A great article on Design*Sponge on using networking to improve your search engine rankings. Something I haven't really paid much attention to but lately has peaked my interest.

Being married to someone whose career began in the concrete finishing trade, I love this tutorial making concrete planters. Jenny never fails to impress me with her DIY prowess.  

Uhm...for someone who is flabbergasted at the prices at J. Crew, I was thrilled to discover a J. Crew Factory online via Nancy. It was hard not to whip out the credit card.

I am sweet-talking the husband into making me one of these beauties.

Hope you all have a great weekend! I am off to a concert with my two teens, going to see Stars and Said the Whale (they are so Canadian eh?)

XO Barbara


  1. wonderful thankful for you keeping me current!
    also love those cement planters!

  2. what? I didnt get easter monday off! I need to move to your province!

    1. Oops I guess I should re-state that in BC we get the day off!

  3. Oh my goodness that table is incredible! I just repinned it for my hubs to add to his "list" poor man! Haha! Have an incredible weekend!

  4. Oh boy, I wish you hadn't told me about the J.Crew factory site. I mean, I'm glad you did...just wish you hadn't...SO dangerous! Now, I'm totally getting what you were telling me about the raw edge table. LOVE it! Get on that sweet talkin'!

  5. I will have to check out the jcrew factory. I was excited for their store to open in Edmonton until is saw the prices....clearly I am more of an Old Navy kind of girl! Thanks for the link!

  6. Nancy's J Crew reveal was the highlight of my week as well, have a great weekend.

  7. Off to the J Crew factory site! Sorry I missed you at Bouclair, I totally got an invite back when they first sent it but didn't think I could go ..... which is sort of true at the time but now that I have this puppy, it's impossible to go anywhere at the moment. Can't wait to see it! Have fun tonight!!!!

  8. This is a great action packed post. I'm going to get a second cup of coffee and follow your links.

  9. The J.Crew factory site is amazing, the only thing more amazing is the outlet store. The discounts are even better!!!!
