Oh, hi – happy Friday!
Our gorgeous week is supposed to turn into an even more beautiful weekend, so I’m hoping to resurrect Ben’s and my summer routine of finding a cool spot to head out to, and explore in the next couple of days. Picnic in tow, perhaps? It’s been years since I’ve had a proper one!
I hope you’ve got something fun in the works too. In the meantime, please enjoy my favorite finds from around the web in this week’s Friday Favorites, and don’t miss the custom knife block giveaway from a family member at the end of the post!
Favorite travel find: On the Way App . Plug in your starting and ending destination, and this website will find a bunch of cool and kooky places to stop at along the way. This will make road trips so much more fun!
Favorite house: Queenstown Home . Hooooly buckets – you have to check out this house in Queenstown, New Zealand. Can you imagine waking up to this view every day?
Ben and I were both lucky to marry into families whom we both adore – extended family included. Ben’s cousin, and our good friend, Jeff Faine, lives in Denver, CO where he owns his own furniture design studio called avenuetwo:design .
Jeff is an extremely talented designer and builder, and expertly hand crafts kitchens, bathrooms, wine racks, hutches, cabinets, and so much more.
He’s also building the kitchen and bathrooms in our future dream home. He just doesn’t know it yet. HA!
Recently Jeff built a beautiful, custom walnut knife block for Ben and me, and offered to build one for an IGE reader too. How sweet, right?!
The inside of the block is filled with wooden skewers to hold any type of knife without harming or dulling it, and is perfect to corral your collection in one place.
Enter to win a custom built knife block by leaving a comment guessing how many wooden skewers fit inside the knife block (inside dimensions are 4.5″ x 4.5″ x 9.25″) by Sunday, May 12 at 12PM central.
