friday finds: letterpress kit, cupcakes, and zebra finches.

Wow, I can't believe it's Friday already! This week went by extremely fast. I hope you all had a wonderful week and have an even better weekend!

Here are some fun finds that I came across this week...

How cool would it be to have your own letterpress right in your home?! I would love love love to make my own pretty letterpress stationery using this amazing at-home letterpress kit from Lifestyle Crafts. How cool is that?!

I have a crush on baking cupcakes. I have never been a huge cake fan (except for ice cream cake!) but when I baked my first batch of cupcakes from scratch, I have never looked back. So, when I recently came across The Complete Magnolia Bakery Cookbook, I automatically put it on my wishlist!

Don't you think that these screen printed city prints are absolutely gorgeous? They're so colorful and well designed. The Heads of State is still expanding their store, so I'm crossing my fingers that they'll create one for Nashville!

I chuckled pretty hard when husband showed me this inspirational poster from Think Geek.

And last, but certainly not's a video of zebra finches playing instruments.

(haha...okay, maybe you didn't find that as amusing as I did...but I used to own a few zebra finches...and I think they're so cute!)

Have you come across any fun finds this week? If so, feel free to include the link in the comments below!

Happy weekend, friends!


  1. Love the zebra finches. I didn't realize they were so talented. I don't think ours were.
    Love, Mom

  2. Makin' anything from scratch (and having it come out) is totally gratifying hu? In fact.. I am making some tonight for a friends bday tomorrow :)

  3. That letter press thing is intriguing. I wonder how well it works.

  4. hahahahaha love the blogging poster ;)
