A beautiful obsession...

I have a new obsession: Pinterest. It's amazing how addicting it can be. I just got on there yesterday thanks to Laura at Cleaning House & Baking Cookies (a wonderful and funny blog, by the way) and I've already spent a few hours on the site. There's so much beauty to be had there, I can't seem to tear myself away.
For those who don't know what Pinterest is, and I didn't before yesterday, it's basically an online inspiration board, a place to "collect" favorite photos, books, recipes, etc. The links come along with the pin, so, for example, you can always go back and get that recipe you really liked. You can "pin" just about anything to one of your boards and create as many collections as you like. I thought I'd share snapshots of a few of my pinboard collections so you can get an idea of what I'm talking about. (Click on the photos to enlarge for a better view.)
If you'd like to find me on there, I'm under ThePinkHome. Happy pinning and happy Pink Saturday!

I am linking to Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound. Thanks as always to Beverly for hosting.


  1. I am trying to figure out how Pinterest works. lol! I am just going to have to take the time as it looks like fun and inspiring, too!
    Happy Pink Saturday!

  2. It doesn't take long to figure out, does it?
    Glad that you are enjoying it! :)

    Thanks for the shout out! ;)
    Enjoy your weekend.


  3. It seems a little confusing at first (like, it took me forever to realize that if something said "follow" I was not following it; I was following if it said "following") but I pretty much got the hang of it within an hour or so. Ridiculously fun.

  4. lovely ! pinterest sounds like a good thing but oh no ! not another thing to take up time LOL

  5. I was invited to join this Pinterest, but declined. I am just not big into all that. I got rid of my Facebook as well.

  6. I have been wanting to check out pinterest myself.
    Thank you for sharing the gorgeous pinks!!
    Very inspiring.
    Happy Pink Saturday..xo Tami

  7. Pinterest is lots of fun but very time consuming, glad you are enjoying it! Hugs Marilou

  8. Happy Pink Saturday! :) Pinterest has been around a while but seems it just now has caught on like fire. I like it better than bookmarks....so much easier to keep up with ideas. Have a wonderful week. ~

  9. I'm behind on blog reading...it's harvest time at my home, so I've been busy with apples and my late-season peaches. Not much time for blog reading the past few days. That's why I'm catching up on this post now.

    However, I have to let you know that I, too, have discovered the beauty of Pinterest. A couple people mentioned it, so I decided to look into it. I LOVE it! Now, I don't have to save everything on my wish list to my "favorites" folder, nor do I have to download every image to my computer, nor do I have to write down a recipe immediately. I just "pin" all those things now.

    I will look you up and "follow" you. You will recognize me since I'm using the same profile photo.
