Good morning! Its Friday, finally. Normally I enjoy cool, grey, rainy days but this week they began to wear on me. Probably because it was lashing rain, no-stop wind and not really grey but almost dark all day, everyday for a week. That sort of weather makes me tired, but alas I was very busy with work so there was no time for that.

I am ready for the weekend and I think I may just start it with a delicious Kir Royale, recipe courtesy of the Anthro Blog.

I would love it if I was going to be sipping my Kir Royale at the Turtledove Cottage. A "bijou bolthole" in Shropshire England, which we can all enjoy and tour on on Modern Country Style.
As that will not be the case, I will settle for a little time exploring one of my new favorite blogs, Sanctuary. This blog is chalk full of beautiful images to loose a few hours of your time scrolling through.
The Vault File posted a fun DIY loafer project. I think this is something that even those of us who are slightly diy challenged could try.

Heidi at the Conscious Perspective blog has profiled five inspiring books about social change, including the newly released, I Am Malala written by Malala Yousafzai who was shot by the Taliban for simply wanting an education.
Incidentally, Malala is the youngest person elected for the Nobel Peace prize which will be announced today. I am rooting for her because at 15 she has lived more and done more than many 4 times her age. She is a peace loving, tenacious young lady that I think it going to grow up to do great things
I know it might seem a little early to think about decorating for the holidays but if you are looking for some unique Christmas stockings, look no further than South House Designs. These beautiful stockings are handmade and come in many patterns and colors and have even been featured in Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Ideas which is on newsstands now.

This pumpkin yeast bread from The Keenan Cookbook is on my radar this weekend as the temperatures drop. To me nothing says Fall like a hot loaf of yeast bread fresh from the oven slathered with butter. You and find the recipe HERE.
