I’d like to end the week sharing some lovely things I’ve found on the web this past week that I think you’ll like too. Welcome to the first Friday Faves!

I love the soft colors and the great logo on this blog by Holly.

I wanted to end this post with a little funny I found on Pinterest. Try as I might, I could not find the source of this image. The link on the pin doesn’t seem to take you anywhere which is kind of strange.
