Friday Favorites - May

May 3, 2019

Hello blog friends.  Yay!  I'm so happy it's Friday and the beginning of May.  

I had a nice week and I'm really enjoying my spring walks.   

Today I'm sharing some of my Friday Favorites.

1.  Dollar Tree 

I was in the Dollar Tree store recently and they have such a nice selection of gardening items.  While I was there I bought some plant labels, a cute welcome rock, and a wall hanging.  If you have time check out all of the gardening items.  They also have the cutest items to make a Fairy garden.

2.  Spring Flowers

While I am on my walks with my dog Bosco I see so many beautiful spring flowers.

Some of you might have recognized some of these flowers on my Instagram @brklynhousewife.

3.  Shoe Shopping

I was shopping in the Famous Footwear store recently and I spotted these Birkenstock sandals.  The price was just too good to pass.  My daughter was so excited that I bought them for her.  Her and her friends call them Berkies.  LOL.  

4.  Easter Eggs

Last Sunday many celebrated Greek Easter and my neighbor gifted us with three red Easter eggs she made for us.  It was so sweet that she thought of us and even made one for our college girl.

5.  Olivia's Romantic Home

I am obsessed with watching Olivia's Romantic Home craft videos on YouTube.  Olivia loves Dollar Tree and makes so many crafts with items found at the DT store.  I also follow her on Instagram.  

Below she posted up this cute watering can she painted and added DT flowers.

I also discovered Olivia's Romantic Home from the blogger Penny's Vintage Home.  If you like to make easy crafts then I suggest you visit Olivia's blog and her YouTube videos.
I love her shabby chic style and I bet you will too.

Thanks for visiting and hope you have a happy Friday and weekend.
