Hello friends! It’s been four weeks since I’ve shared any Friday Finds. I didn’t realize it had been so long. These past few weeks I’ve been focusing most of my attention on gardening and getting the pond in tip-top shape for summer. In addition, I started a new exercise routine that’s going really well but also takes more of my time – but it’s time well spent and I have more energy because of it. Anyway, enough of me. Let’s see all of this week’s goodies!
Let’s start with a sweet little wooded cottage that was renovated by Fixer Upper experts, Chip and Joanna Gaines. You’ll enjoy the before and after pictures that are included. What first caught my eye was the charming windows above the flower box.
Are you tired of the way your refrigerator looks and wish you could give it a refresh without buying a new one or spending money on an expensive wooden structure to surround it? How about a fridge wrap? I think this is such a clever idea and a fun way to add color and pattern in your kitchen. Not to mention, this Etsy vendor is Ukrainian so you can help support someone in the war torn country. She works her best to ensure your product is delivered despite some of the challenges. Last year I bought Ukrainian Christmas ornaments for my tree and they arrived intact and in a timely manner.

Speaking of being outside in the summer, check out this Dalgona whipped coffee recipe. Coffee never tasted so good!
Enjoy your first weekend of June. It’s gonna be a hot one here in Chicagoland so I’m thinking of doing a little kayaking on a nearby lake. It’s always cooler on the water.
