Pinterest




I ran into an old friend a few weeks ago who told me about a website that she loves, Pinterest. It is the strangest sight but in a really good way. It is a place for you to create virtual pinboards and place upon it any image you might find on the web or on their site. You can create your own categories and have as many boards as you want. You can comment and "like" other people's pins as well as repin them to your own boards. In addition, when you pin something you get the original website or blog link the images was from. That makes it a great place to save recipes and diy tutorials. The image above was my first "pin" and I am in love with that space. Can't you just imagine curling up with a good book and warm cup of tea in that porch?

The only catch to joining pinterest is you must have either a facebook or twitter account and if you have an aversion to those sites you are out of luck. However, the inspiration is worth it! The only other drawback I heard from my friend was that it takes awhile to get a reply if you want to join, so getting an invite is faster.

Hi Sandy, I think it is really fun! I find so much inspiration. I do find that once I get started it is hard to pull myself away though!

I just can't handle one more thing, or website, or commitment to something on this computer but I love the name Pinterest and I could live inside that photo. It's just beautiful. I even have a place that I could build it here on our property. Oh well.... Dream the dream and carry on.
