Highly Contagious and Addictive

Yes, I am talking about Pinning on my Pinterest Boards!
I now find myself pinning every free minute on my life!
I keep thinking "This too shall pass"
But it hasn't yet!
I practically pin in my sleep!

One of the most amazing discoveries as I curate my mood boards is seeing a  certain style emerging.
One that I was uncertain of.
I have worked in the field of design in one capacity or another for 25 YEARS!
I discovered as we began the renovation process....
I really didn't know what I liked anymore!
 I liked what would sell in the stores I owned or worked in...In a clients home or showroom...
I like what was trendy and the latest must have....

I was lost as to what I really liked!

Now, I am seeing through my pin style!

great idea for those little things you always seem to need!

from thought of home via Pinterest

If you haven't started should!
It has been so wonderful to see things "come together"
Another "true love" aspect of pinning for me is that the original author of the pick...gets the credit via a link to their web page!
So I will never loose track of the source again! ( I really hate it when I can't remember where I got a picture from...I can't return to see more:)

 On Pinterest, The link is right there at the bottom of my pictures!

I now have a link to my Pinterest Pinboards on my sidebar so that you can see my latest pins!
If you pin too...I would love to follow along with you as well!

If you don't see me here for a while, better check my boards...I am probably pinning!
stopped to take in the view

Well I am off to begin cleaning before the youngest one arrives tomorrow!
Until next time....


  1. I really should check into this.

  2. I'm addicted to it too. I love that I can pin something and now I know forever where to find it again. I too think it shows you clearly what your style is...I pick the same colors over and over. I might think I want to go neutral in my home...but then I go through my pins and see I just can't stay away from the bright pastels mixed with white. I will have to follow you.

  3. I keep thinking about starting but don't know if I need another addiction! :)
    It's storming here so maybe it's a good day to play around...I'll check yours out.

    Have fun with your son!

  4. Oh yeah, it can be addictive. Really, someone should start a group for those of us who are already addicted. But seriously, I try to stay away from it since browsing my favorite blogs takes enough time out of my day.

  5. I've only been over there one time, joined up and haven't been back! Guess I need to get started!

  6. I just requested to join and spent over an hour browsing!

  7. Yep, you described it exactly!
    I'm SO satisfied with my boards and how I have links to keep.
    And the recipes, oh!

  8. I like pinterest !! did you get my email ??? enjoy your week !! love from

  9. Pinning is highly addictive...and so much fun! And you Donna are one of my favorite friends to pin. I love every single thing you put your hand to.:)

  10. let's join pinners anonymous! i am off to check your pins!

  11. Yeah I am loving Pinterest too. There aren't enough good things to say about keeps track of everything and is super easy to use.

  12. I've been hearing about it for months and I still haven't looked into it. One more reason to stay on the computer too long. haha
    will go check yours out.

  13. Yes, I discovered Pinterest recently and it is highly addictive and enjoyable! I haven't started a Board or pinning yet, but I imagine creating an inspiration board would reveal more about which aesthetic we're gravitating towards now. I have eclectic tastes but I do find myself drawn to certain things with consistency throughout Life.
