Brrr! We’re having a cold snap here in Chicagoland and I don’t like it one bit. I don’t mind 30-degree temperatures but when it gets close to 0 degrees out, that’s no bueno! A bit of cabin fever settles in because I don’t like to go anywhere when it’s that cold. And then when the air creeps back up into the 30s, it feels pretty balmy outside!
January is about half way over, so that’s a good thing. And the days are getting slightly longer, ever so slowly. Also, I won’t deny that fresh-fallen snow looks beautiful. When I spend more time indoors, I find more inspiring ideas for Friday Finds. This week I’ve got more goodies for you.
Let’s get started with a Norwegian cabin update that includes before and after photos. The transformation is ah-maz-ing and I love the new look of this sweet little abode in one of the happiest countries in the world.
What’s also amazing are these cool bathroom backsplash ideas. Each one impressed me and of course, I want to try each idea in my own bathroom.
Historic paint colors are back in fashion and this collection from James Coviello’s house are right up my alley. I’m especially loving the beige paint colors.

Are you thinking of Valentine’s Day yet? Here’s my favorite pink and gray table setting that’s perfect for Cupid’s holiday. Of course, I’m always a sucker for tulips!
We’ll end today’s inspirational round-up with dessert. An Italian orange ricotta cake that looks like it melts in your mouth. Double yum!
Stay safe in this winter weather and enjoy peaceful time indoors. Soon enough, the gardening season will begin and life will get a little busier with outdoor chores added to our daily task list.
