Friday Finds

By Kate Riley March 14, 2013

Hello hello and happy St. Patrick’s Day weekend! Do you celebrate? I always make the classic corned beef dinner and spicy mustard, so I’m looking forward to the traditional feast! I’ve spied some lovely links online this week so here’s another round of spaces and articles to enjoy this weekend. 

I really loved Michelle Adams NYC apartment feature in the March issue of Lonny.

The Spring Issue of Sweet Paul is also brand new and as always filled with glorious recipes and inspiration.

I’m not setting a St. Patrick’s Day tablescape this year, but if I was, it would be fun to do it with these green and gold favorites.

Two very cool ceramic studios I discovered while browsing on Etsy:

 Pigeontoe Ceramics and Ingleside Pottery


And a few other posts I enjoyed this week:

Nate Berkus has a new TV show

The prettiest 600 square foot condo in Montréal

Over 100 designer’s tips and tricks

Very cool houses on wheels

The 96 year old (with 7 decades of experience) who shares marital advice

The power of “I don’t” versus “I can’t”

A tantalizing tour of Les Madeleines (I also sampled a few in January, yum!)

She refuses to be airbrushed

She gets to be his mom forever 


Wishing you all a lovely weekend! I’m finishing up my daughter’s room, stitching up some curtains for the closet and a few pillowcases too, I’ll share it all on Monday!


Have a great St. Patrick’s Day,

  1. Dublin is celebrating this weekend. Paddy’s day is always colorful! We will have great parade and I bet really bad hangovers on Monday, so glad we have this day off.

    Lots of love from Dublin

  2. So sad – photos are just coming up as grey rectangles on Firefox – and on Safari :-(

  3. Yippee! Just saw the article about Nate having a new show! So HAPPY! I’ve missed seeing that man on TV!
    Have a great weekend.

    • Hi Debbie and Elaine, I can see images in both IE and Firefox – I know gray boxes are suddenly showing up in the RSS feed and email subscriptions and I’m working on it!

  4. Happy St. Patrick’s Day Kate & everyone! I love “Friday Finds” even if I don’t get to read them until Sunday! I am making little Irish Soda bread loaves for my neighbors & catching up on bits & blogs. Visit http://www.mysoulfulhome for the recipe…
    Have a lovely Sunday,
