I'm starting a new series on Fridays that I hope will be semi regular (I don't have the best track record with series, but this one should be lots of fun!).  There are so many bits and pieces of things that I'd like to share with you, but may not be worthy of a full post, so I thought I'd corral them all together in one random post each week.  So, this will be a collection of various links and things I've been loving this week! 

I'm dying over this outdoor living space.  Rhoda from Southern Hospitality posted the pic from a show house she visited a few years ago.  Click that link to see more photos from this amazing home.  

Several of you loved it as much as I did, so here's the link where you can order this fabric that I shared earlier this week (I ordered mine yesterday!).  It's Robert Allen Malakos, and I found it at one of my favorite online fabric sites.  Not too bad at 18.95/yard for a few pillows, and it also comes in a really pretty rich blue and charcoal black.

I fininshed painting the dresser.  It's still drying and I need to add the knobs, but I can't wait to get it all styled up and show it to you next week. 

This bedroom:

It puts the colors I've been wanting to use in my master bedroom together, and throws in some GREEN! So, it's now my inspiration photo for that room.

I shared this on Instagram (follow me at jenniferdimplesandtangles) yesterday, but I'm crazy about it!  It's a functioning door knob but I'm going back to check it out to see if maybe I can make it work to replace the 2 dummy knobs on my kitchen pantry doors.

And finally, a huge thank you to Ashley from The Handmade Home for featuring my Green China Cabinet this past week.  If you're not familiar with her blog, you're missing out!  Here's her amazing living room, filled with projects she and her husband have done themselves.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!  I've got a few things on the DIY list that will hopefully get marked off, how about you?
