i've fallen in love

Okay, I know what you're thinking.

"That Laura, she's gone and fallen in love with some old coot lovely gentleman at her pre-op appointment." Well, Jane Fonda found love in rehab after her knee replacement, so you never know.

No, I'm afraid there has been no Prince Charming, but I have fallen in love. I am a very visual person and I have absolutely become smitten with Pinterest. 

I mean what is there not to love. 

The soft scent of a rose as it drips its petals over a chippy board fence...

The feeling of pure envy as you gaze upon a collection of amazing linens and textiles...

An old worn bathroom for soaking away the cares of the day....

remembering clothing from days gone by.....

an old porch that takes me right back to hot summer days at my grandparents' house.....

and a place to nap on a cold and snowy winter day.....

Yes, what is there not to love about Pinterest. So if I seem to be missing in action at times, you can find me HERE dreaming of things for my new life.

  8. For me those who avoid Pinterest, and deride it, are just not visual people like the rest of us. Yes it takes up some time, but so do other lovely pursuits, would you rather watch TV?. I've been so inspired to create, in all areas especially, food, crafts, home DIY, from a amazing collection of images...

    It's like opening a new magazine each time, a very expensive, beautifully created, stunningly photographed magazine.

  13. GREAT post, Laura- You never KNOW who you might run into in rehab? Not celebrity rehab, is it?;>) That old rusty "aqua/green" glider? My Aunt had an identical one on her front porch and I spent many, many hours snuggled into pillows with a kitty or puppy on that old glider- xo Diana

  20. I love Pinterest too. I don't actually pin though. I have been copying pictures in my own favorites file for years and just continue to do it that way. I'm a creature of habit I guess. I do love it when I'm looking for inspiration of a certain look or craft idea. Glad to hear that you've discovered it too!

  21. I love Pinterest, too. It's my big girl bedtime story -- pretty pictures, no stress.
