Friday Finds

By Kate Riley November 9, 2012

Hey all, it’s a late delivery of some Friday finds I spied around the web this week!  We’re off on a three day getaway so I’ve been rushing around trying to get everything ready, but had to share these with you!

Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan have very pretty home in Manhattan that was featured at Architectural Digest.

Other articles I enjoyed this week:

A fascinating farm-to-table trend.


Have a great three day weekend everyone!  We’re off to spend some time at my parents place in Las Vegas and share an early Thanksgiving with my sister and her husband  – be back on Sunday with another round of ‘Best of the Blogosphere’. 



  1. Beautiful! The cardboard trees remind me of the art of Ferry Staverman. I also really like the lines of the chair in the first photo.

    My find of the day was not on the web- it was finding that Kasbah mirror of yours in Home Goods! I could not believe my eyes! I’ve coveted it for 2 years and today I stumbled across it for $129. Woo! I also realized too late I should have read your spray painting tutorials before starting to work it over. I totally failed to account for how fast and far those fumes can spread! My room was clearly NOT well ventilated enough and hubs is not-too-happy. Oh well, small price to pay for a beautiful piece. Still trying to decide what color to paint it.
