Weekly Pinterest Finds

I know that at least one reader was vehement against me posting what I find interesting on Pinterest.  She said that she comes here to see MY photography. To that end, whenever I choose to share images I find on Pinterest, I'll always post one of my own. 

I enjoy perusing Pinterest from time to time. It's like looking through a magazine. When I see something I enjoy, I post it to one of my boards, of which I have several. And my Pinterest account is in George's name in case you were wondering. 





I love owls. And I love this image.

From my New York, New York board.





This one just makes me happy.

An example of what raindrops can add to an image.






I have a board titled Coolness, which is what this is.







If I made every recipe I found on Pinterest, I would be huge. This one looks healthy and delicious, though. I love this site for the recipes, and it's really nice being able to store them on my boards.






Pretty blue bathroom.





Gorgeous misty autumnal image.







This is one of my own images, taken at the Four Seasons in Philadelphia a couple of years ago.



Hope you enjoyed. Have a beautiful day ~

I love Pinterest...have found so much inspiration, ideas, recipes, quotes, tutorials, must-have gadgets, etc...whoever came up with this idea deserves a big hug (and probably more) thanks for sharing your favs of the week!!

I love Pinterest, it's like curating your own gallery, and you can go and visit anytime you want. Plus the cats, and the cupcakes... :)

I say you get to post whatever you like on your blog. Now I have to go repin that cat/book photo.....

Pinterest is awesome! I also enjoy clipping things from magazines and pasting them into my journal or a separate notebook as well.

Love that kitty shot!!

JC said...

The cat one is great.
I want that window in my bathroom.
The woods are beautiful. Love the red touch.

You have an eye for a good photo so anything you take or like is fine by me.

Lurve ya!!

The umbrella/parasol photo made me happy, too.

Pinterest is what I use now to replace all the magazine subscriptions that I have given up over the past few years. A quick pin here or there replaces a whole stack of torn out pages. I love it for project ideas, to remember antique pieces that I like, garden images, and to keep track of all those random things that I find online and MUST save for later. (To tell the truth, tho, I don't get it when I find someone who has tens of thousands of pins ... I have WAY better things to do.)

Now I'm off to see what else your Pinterest boards have on them. I plan to be hitting the 'Follow' button while I'm there.

Love especially the owl and the peep down that enhanting lane. Dare not look at the last image - too tempting.

Em Parkinson said...

I've repinned that owl and a few of your other feathered ones....thank you!

Annie said...

I don't mind looking at your finds Kate, because I'll probably never get around to finding any of my own!
Lovely!

andy said...

Love that country road picture

Gone Country said...

I'm not on Pinterest so I always enjoy seeing what others are pinning. Besides, it's your blog... post whatever you want!

Daryl said...

i am wondering where in nyc that was taken, sort of looks like it might be on sixth avenue in the 20s .. grand central is a maker of clocks, that clock is not in or from grand central terminal which is 100 this year and i must get there (wanna do this when i get back from paris?) ...

TSannie said...

That owl is incredible!

(And love that blue bathroom.)

Dianne said...

love the owl and the cat
all the others are pretty too
I've never checked out Pinterest
I fear what will happen if I do :)

Carolynn Anctil said...

Like Jinxxxygirl, I don't do pinterest either, but I do enjoy the images you share. That cat one is awesome! Well...so many are.

Marilyn said...

I like logging on after you have finished pinning...then my 'page' is filled with your images and I don't have to search for beauty/something interesting so hard!!!

Ramona JapaneseRedneck said...

I always say "it's your blog"....so that means post what you want. Besides, if you don't show me what you find on Pinterest, then I'd never see it. Cause I don't facebook, pinterest and other sites like that.

Karen said...

I love these images... and I think I'm the only one left who doesn't browse pinterest very often... what's THAT about?... such beautiful things!

And now I have a challenge for you. you have a cat. You have books. I dare you to recreate that awesome image, in your own way.

(Don't ya hate when I do that?)


:-)

Hilary said...

I think you should post whatever pictures you want, Pinterest or otherwise.
It's your blog.
sometimes, people forget.

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Pinterest is something I've enjoyed only through other people's experiences, since I've never been to the site. So I don't mind you posting stuff from there (not that you were looking for my permission).

The ones you've selected are just stunning.

Debbie From Illinois said...

I don't have a Pinterest account so I love seeing what people post on their boards. The owl is so cool but now I really want a cappuccino. :-)

I joined Pinterest but don't know how to use it! Maybe one day I'll look at it more closely.

The owl picture is breath taking.

Hi Kate, I love owls also and that shot is amazing. And, oh, that blue bathroom. Thanks for sharing. I am heading over to Pinterest right now.
