New Discovery

I have found a new way to distract myself and suck hours from my life as I sit on the couch every night...like I needed that in addition to ancestry.com, babycenter, and of course the always reliable Facebook.  It is called Pinterest...I insist that you look at it.  It is a website that lets users create inspiration "pin boards" with things that they find or add themselves that they like, want to try, have made or want to make, or just like!

I have seen other ladies (it is not a women's website but it seems to draw in many more women!) that I know exlaiming over Pinterest on Facebook in relation to everything from weddings to cooking to crafts.  I finally looked at it.  Oh my...oh my...ideas everywhere!  For everything!  If you roll the cursor over the "everything" link at the top you will see all the categories.  So far, my favorites have been the DIY and crafts and the home decor categories although I just looked at it for the first time yesterday.  I quickly glanced at the pets link and found it to be enchanting as well.  I signed up for an invite last night and haven't recieved my email yet...please don't forget about me Pinterest!  I want to make my own pin board with stuff I like and want to try!  Maybe even stuff I made myself and then other people could pin my creations on their boards!  Since I don't have an invite yet so I don't have my own board, here is a sampling of a few (a few...I could have gone on indefinitely...) things I liked on there.  I am adding the name of the site the pinboard linked to because I don't want to be a thief. 

Originally from http://www.designsponge.com...%20would/ you look at that!?  This caught my eye because it just so happens that there is a vintage tub like this in my parents' attic.  It is gigantic and I always thought it would be very fun to bring it back to its' glory.  Imagine the color possibilities!

See the website on the photo...these are great...so appealing and cozy!  I think you could put a sweater on anything and make it cute!
