Pin It {and the winners}


I am addicted like so many others.

I have to set a timer or I will get lost into the Pinterest vortex.

I have seen it written that someone was freebasing Pinterest…funniest comment to date!

Seriously, I have to have kiddie restraints put on me or I will waste too much time.

I had the privilege of hearing Ben Silbermann (the creator of Pinterest) speak on a panel last year at the Altitude Design Summit (Alt).

This past January I heard him again as the keynote speaker at Alt.

One year has made a huge difference in the world of Pinterest.

Pinterest is a game changer.

It is fun to see someone’s creative dream change the way we can organize beauty and then go on to create ourselves.

“Pin it” is becoming a common saying.

I wanted to share with you some of my favorite “pins”.

Freebase the beauty:-)

Join me for one of my boards…… “Vintage Style”.

All sources can be found on my vintage style board HERE.


What are you pinning?

I would love to see.

    I agree Pinterest is very addicting! I jokingly wrote a Dear John letter to FB explaining why I was cheating on it with Pinterest. Much more attractive, keeps me up all hours of the night, fulfills my needs much better…..I definitely need to set a timer as well….love your Pins in the last few weeks…esp. the one today w/ your hubby.

    Ohhh….I love pinterest! So fabulous!!! I’ve told heaps of friends about it…but with the explanation that you have to be the boss and not let it take over your life. =) (A timer is a great idea…may have to do that!) Right now, I’m trying to just limit my pins to things that I may actually do/need/make sooner rather than later…and since we are in the beginning stages of a remodel it has been fabulously helpful for gathering ideas. I even sent one of our contractors there just so he could see what I was talking about. It is amazing! I love to see your pins pop up…they always seem to make me smile.

    I can so identify with what you have said in this post. Since I am now retired I can get lost for hours and still get my work done. I never did drugs, but would imagine roaming around Pinterest fully enjoying every second is much like a drug high. This is brilliant place to wander.

    Your site is so enjoyable too. Love what you shared with us today. Wish I could figure out how to make a playlist because I love your music. I am going to have to read up on that and make one.

    Hi there,
    Loving your posts, since my husband got in trouble it’s hard to get to a computer. The smartphone is great but everything is so small. When I got to see this in the library, it is just so gorgeous. You have made some wonderful pics, and I loved your sharing them. I am a chandelier restorer, and many other things, but that’s what I am doing for a shop that is not making money. I am in flux at 60, wish I thought of this sooner. Anyway thanks for all your inspiration. I could not enter the pinterest because I could not deal with it on the phone (a new deal, and a lot to learn but I am getting there.)
