Friday Links

Friday LinksHappy Friday friends! I’m back from California and missing the sunshine already. It looks like it’s going to be extra nice here in Philly this weekend, so keep those fingers crossed we’re almost done with this never ending winter! Also if I just jinxed everything, I am so sorry. Whether you’ll be spending your weekend working in the garden or curled up on the couch indoors, here are some links you won’t want to miss:

Pink on pink with hearts forever.

– Digging the colors on these leather coasters!

Rainbow waffles are the only way to brunch.
