Hope that you are having a better day than little Genghis!

Don't these look good enough to eat! I'm not sure if I could actually have these in my house because I think a curious 6-year old might try to take a nibble and would be in for a nasty surprise. These soap licorice are just one of the many fun products that LoveLeeSoaps has created. I love browsing through her creations - it is bound to make you smile!
Smiles are needed around here. Reilly and Genghis collided last Saturday night and now poor Genghis is on pain meds and antibiotics and is wearing a cone! He is so embarrassed, especially when he encounters other dogs on our walks. Reilly just feels horrible and the cone is a constant reminder to him that he hurt his little buddy. I would post a pic of the cone but every time I try and take a picture, Genghis turns away almost like he really is embarrassed of the thing. Poor Genghis! Here's to a speedy recovery.

I have been looking at redoing Reilly's room and had thought about painting a scene or something on his wall. Only problem is.... I am not so talented with the painting. Luckily I came across these awesome vinyl wall decals. Now I want to do my whole house in them! Hubby has wisely limited me to Reilly's bedroom and I think this is the one I am going with:
Now to choose the colours! You can find this wall decal here and many more awesome ones here.

Today's Fab Find was forwarded to me by a friend. It is a beautiful bracelet kit by the talented Kaari Meng of French General. My friend knows what a fan I am of French General and this bracelet is all for a good cause - haitibyhand. Haiti by Hand is an etsy shop established to showcase and sell the handcrafts of the Haitians, as well as a shop to sell items donated by artists and crafters who want to help this group of Haitians rebuild and establish themselves after the devastation of the earthquakes.
You can find the bracelet kit here and other items for haitibyhand here.

After all that labouring in the garden, I decided to something quick for supper - my smokey cheddar cauliflower soup. Now I am one who very loosely follows a recipe. I have listed the actual recipe but put in brackets how I actually made the soup. It does change each time :o).

Okay, so Fab Finds Friday kind of fell by the wayside last summer with our busy "kid home for the summer" schedule. But, I am vowing to bring this back and keep it going. There are so many awesome, creative ideas out there that I see every day and I want to share them with people. If you see anything neat that you want to share, feel free to post the link in comments!
Today I was inspired by a little birdie I heard in a tree. A brave little robin has already arrived back and I said a little prayer for him that there will be no further snow storms to make him regret his decision! The robin's song is the most beautiful thing to hear after 4 months of snow. Spring is just around the corner!
This robin is brought to you by stayawake. Be sure to check out her Etsy store. So many cute little finger puppets.
