Weekly Pinterest Finds

Probably due to my sporadic posts of late, I have received several e-mails from regular readers asking if I've been ok and I promise you that I have. Really! Please note that I rarely use exclamation points. It's just been a tough year so far, that's all. It's not always going to be this way.

I can't believe I used to post daily. Maybe I'm just in a sort of slump.

I visit Pinterest from time to time, keeping my visits fairly short. There are so many wonderful images and ideas there, and I've found a lot of great recipes. Here are a few things I found recently that I thought would be worth sharing with you.

I have several boards, and this one is from I named Escape. I love the styling in this image and the photo edit is rich with darkly hued colors. The subject matter makes you feel like you're spending a relaxing Sunday morning in the backyard in early Autumn. I want to enjoy the coffee with my toast and homemade jam and watch a manly man chop some wood.

From my Dream Abode board, I'd like to introduce you to my library room in my summer home in Maine. I love everything about this room: the slatted wood ceiling, the light fixture, the bookcases under the windows, the wood floors against the white, and that beautiful rug. All of it.

Best of all, I love the setting.

I could see me in this.

Right now.

Jennifer Lawrence is my favorite new actress. She is a hoot and a half.

Titanic kittens.

From my Springtime board - love these little vases.

Best photobomb.

I love stuff that makes me smile.

Thank you, Mr. Chaplin.

I know this is a tiny one, but I love peach and mint together.
I also love cucumber water. Just slice up cucumbers and let them
soak in the water. Very refreshing.

And because I will always include one of my own images when I post about Pinterest, I give you Miss Blackie waiting at the back door, and looking very ladylike. Taken last summer.

Hope you enjoyed ~

and the Titanic kittens made me laugh OUT LOUD.
and I love Pinterest for recipes, it is such a great place to save your faves!
Although if I made all the ones I like, I would double in size without a problem.

I love the cushions on the top of the book cases you can climb up on, plop your butt down and the fight over reading a wonderful book and looking at a wonderful view. Best window seats ever! xo

love the summer library, that's a dream room for me

I don't post as often as I used to either
it's been a rough time here too plus I have gotten to a place in my journey where I don't say anything until I have something to say


Karen said...

swooning over that first image.. And I'm not one to use the word "swoon"

As for exclamation marks.. whenever someone uses them too frequently, it makes them look alittle... manic, no?

Hi!!!!! I love your images!!!! Hope you're having a great day!!!

It is good to know you find tiny ports (library, cucumber water) in this storm we call life.

My favorite board on Pinterest is called things that make me smile. Because smiling is the best.

But these are all great, those crazy kittens make me smile, too.
