My Friday Finds  

Hello lovelies... How are you?

So excited to share my Friday Finds today.... bursting...actually.

Check out... My new-to-me table.... I've been wishing for a vintage arborite table for some time....I imagined it on the front porch..... In fact...a few months back I looked at one but didn't buy it....

Then the other night my phone beeped.... with a text message.... and a picture of the table of my dreams... 'Kim, my Mom thought you might be interested in this table.... We can bring it by on our way home, if you like?' What??? are you kidding me... YES please...

An hour or so later it landed in my driveway!!

Thank you Bev... This might just be one of my most favourite gifts....and thank you Bruce for the delivery!! Isn't she a beauty?

I'm not sure what will work best for chairs... kinda digging my random wooden chairs with it... thinking maybe even better than metal ones? Whatchya think?

The BEST part.... that very day... for Be Still, I had written about making a list of props, drops and table tops you are wishing for........ How the act of writing it down... might surprise you....and poof.... this little lovely arrived!!

Seriously?? It works......


We've had a few meals at the table...It's not just for pretty pictures....

Today I enjoyed a new favourite ..... chick pea & black bean salad.... The recipe can be found HERE... It's super healthy and delic....I double the recipe and add a can of black beans. 

By the way... Dashing Dish is PACKED FULL of awesome recipes!! I even signed up for a membership.

While I was out snapping pics... I decided to take a few chair shots... along came Ben.... look where he landed..... 

Can you see my toes? Soo adorable....

In todays new to me table, last week's coffee pot (simply for the pop), the bowl, mug and linens all from Anthropologie, this beautiful book (thank you, again Cheryl)....and Benny.

Okay friends.. I must sign off.... it's been quite the day.....

The S2F connect was awesome... seriously... could do that every week, ladies!! Thank much!

Happy Friday...... Link away lovelies....

Love & Gratitude.... ♡



p.s. S2F students, today's photos were processed in LR with the HazyDazy preset.

Kim, I love the first picture of your post... so many lines... vertical, horizontal, curved lines, oblique... they give such a structured power to your picture... and this small touch of red, completing this so fresh 2-color composition, so perfect, so lovely for a home decoration magazine!

Hi Kim,

so stunning pictures, they look so easy and lazy. To look at them is a great start in my day, thanks!

Have a happy day ... Frauke

Awesomeness with that table. I love the look of that salad, will have to add that to my #asaladaday minus the olives. I love them but Glen not so much. Will have to check out Dashing Dish.

Kim, So happy for you and your new table! And yes, this happens so often - I wish it, and poof! it just seems to appear. Found a great old wooden storage box this week; the top will make a great backdrop and I can store props inside - double duty, just like your table (a place to eat AND a photo background). Love your photos today - the beautiful composition with the reds and greens (outside adds such a special touch to these pictures). It is clear to me that you live in the moment as you took note of Ben and made the adorable pictures of him playing among your legs - such a a touching photo. Thanks for the link to the recipe - already printed it out for lunch this weekend! I so enjoyed our chat yesterday - my husband listened in the background and we all think of you as family!

I love your new table, and the whole idea of al fresco meals on your lovely porch. Wishing you much happiness to enjoy it, Bonny

Enjoyed these photos today, the table is lovely! I saw a photo several months back of a vintage table, every chair around it was a wooden mismatch, I fell in LoVe, I will have a setting like that some day! I think your wooden chairs look perfect with your table! I esp. love the pics of Ben, he is so photogenic! :)

Hi there. Nice to meet you. Friday finds is a great idea. This salad looks absolutely delicious and your dog simply asks for many hugs, he is so cute. Have a great week-end!

We had a similar table in out kitchen when I was a child, it wasn't vintage then ;) Guess I am showing my age!
A lovely theme in your photos today, cool whites and red splashes, terrific. Ben is quite a big lapdog!

hi Kim ... love your find ... you lucky girl. You wished it and it came true...sigh. I have been wishing for a neat chair that I could photograph, and today I found one. I can not wait to "play"! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Congrats on the table! Looks lovely, but what I really adore is that bowl! I just love that it isn't perfectly round. Perfectly imperfect!
Will have to give that recipe a try as those are all ingredients I love.
Have an awesome weekend!

I love how the Universe answers our intentions. Happy the table found a new home on your front porch. I look forward to many more lovely, restorative photos of it.
