Friday Favorites from Sophia Home, Toast, Celebrations at Home Blog, Traditional Home, and More

Good morning! How was your week? Hopefully it was great! Are you ready for the weekend or is that a silly question? Is there ever a time that people are not ready to rest relax and not work?

I am ready for all of the above, just as I always am. I am tired. I started working with a personal trainer this week and I am getting my butt kicked! Thankfully I have two days to rest.

What are your plans for Thanksgiving? Will you be with family? Or perhaps friends? If you need a little inspiration for your Friendsgiving Celebration then visit Celebrations at Home Blog

Discovering new blogs is always a treat, Sophia Home is my latest discovery. Located in the English countryside, interior designer Sophia showcases beautiful photos, finds and travel.

I love English country houses and the history behind them. This post on the blog The Art of the Room about St. Giles House is fascinating from the history to the restoration.

It is not too soon to be thinking about Christmas decorating. This week Traditional Home has tartan tips from Scott Mecham Woods.

TOAST is a new to me online store. Have you heard of it? 

I am starting to compile a list of my favorite gifts to give for Christmas and these Salted Caramels by Salt & Ayre are a favorite that I think the chocolate lover in your life will like as well.

Watch THIS IKEA COMMERCIALbut get a box of tissue. A great holiday message to everyone, not just parents.

I hope that you found something here that was new to you. If you have found any great books, movies, recipes or more please share!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Good morning Elizabeth! Those salted chocolates are heavenly! It is still rather unseasonably warm here, so the thought of holidays still has not sunk in yet! But I am getting excited as I see photos already of Christmas. Enjoy your weekend!

  2. HI Elizabeth, the holidays are knocking on our doors. I about went into shock when I realized it is November~~ I have heard that there are some really good movies being released for the season!

  4. I love this post, I need all the holiday spirit I can in California the sun is always shining and it's hard to get 'in the mood'!
