A Few Favorites April 13

This has been a weird week.  I feel like I've hardly been at home at all!  I went to visit my friend, Lori, on Tuesday and my car broke down while we were on our way to lunch.  Luckily, her husband is awesome at all things mechanical so he was able to fix it, but we had to wait for a part to come the next day.  So my husband picked me up Tuesday and then Wednesday after work, we drove back up and picked up my car.  It's running like a champ now. 

Work has been busy, snow is almost gone, and both cats have been trying to sneak out at every opportunity.  I've started some seeds indoors, done some spring cleaning, but not much sewing or crafting. 

But, here are some things I'm loving this week.

1. Did you guys see that See Kate Sew is having a Zippy Top sewalong?  I like the pattern because it's hard to find a cute, simple, top that uses non-stretch fabrics.  I think the zipper is an adorable addition too.  I haven't had time to start mine yet, but I did buy the pattern, and find some fabrics I may try to make it out of.

2. These candles are from Maple Hill Farms are awesome!  Their farm is near here and they sell at our local farmer's market.  (Actually I mentioned them in a blog post from last July about my Farmer's Market.) Their candles are soy and they smell great.  I was excited to see that they sell on Etsy now.  Trust me, if you're looking for good smelling soy candles, you can't beat these.

3.  Blissful Basil is one of my favorite vegan blogs.  I can go days without eating meet.  (Giving up dairy altogether is another story.)  Blissful Basil always has great recipes and these avocado radish toasts are no exception.  It looks so tasty!  I actually went out and bought radish seeds after seeing these. 

So it finally feels like spring is here and I'm super excited to get some projects started as well as finish up some that have been hanging over my head.  Hope it's nice where you are!
