And you know me. I have just as much fun naming my boards as I do pinning to them. Check it:
My husband and I will be putting in a new kitchen at the beginning of next year, so I've been dreaming about what features I'd like to have in my dream kitchen in my board entitled Kitchen Fiction. While I still haven't settled completely on a style, I do know I'd like to have antique white cabinets like these:
...and I'm loving those blue accents as well--especially that TDF subway tile back splash!
We have a large picture window in our kitchen that overlooks our pasture with a broad view in the distance (we can see all the way to Massachusetts which is over 40 miles away!), so I love the idea of this nook with all its windows, and the beauty of it is that this is something we could actually do:
For me, the best part about Pinterest is being able to assemble images of things I love, knowing that I'll never have the space or the budget to indulge in all of them. For example, I've always loved funky accent chairs, and I recently pinned these to my Chair-ish board:
After I pinned that flor-rific chair, I realized that one of the reasons I love it so much is that the fabric is adapted from the pattern in this 2012 calendar from Rifle Paper Co. that hangs in my office.
I seem to be drawn to similarly short and squatty chairs, as I just pinned this one yesterday:
Here are a couple of funs from my What a Great Idea board, including these button push pins:
...and these twig plant markers:
One of my favorite things in the whole wide world to do is cook, and now that I can stir again (hurray!), I'd love to try these recipes from my Try Me board:
My daughters will be here for a visit exactly two weeks from today, so I'm thinking these S'mores Cookie Bars--so seasonal and fun--will be fun to try.
I don't know about you, but I absolutely adore all things lavender. I even wrote a poem about it once. I've tried lavender lemonade and lavender ice cream, so why not this Honey Lavender Cake?
I could go on and on, but I do realize you have a life to get back to, so I'll finish with these recent lovelies that I pinned to my board entitled Cards I Just Love. While I have boards associated with the content that I pin from the Moxie Fab World and Paper Crafts magazine (of course), this board is for the myriad of moxie fab cards that I see when I am out and about, a-bipping and a-bopping from place to place in my online travels, for no other reason than to celebrate the pure and simple joy of card making.
Here's a clean and graphic wonderment from Maile Belles:
This delightful concoction by Danielle Flanders brings me unspeakable joy:
How about you? What is your favorite thing about Pinterest AND/OR which of these pins inspires you the most and why? Leave me a comment by midnight EDT on Sunday, July 22 and I'll draw one random lucky to receive something delicious from my moxie magical prize drawer!
Grateful to be pinning again,

PS CHA is in full swing! And even though I'm feeling much, much better and am getting back into the blessed and much-missed routine of my life, it was such a good decision not to go as I'm still not able to sleep in a bed (I tried once again last night but still couldn't get comfortable) and I still tire easily from basic tasks. But Susan and Kelly have got it covered on the Paper Crafts Facebook Fan Page, so be sure and tune in to all the goings on over there. AND, we're teaming up with our dear friends at Creating Keepsakes as well, so be sure and check out their Facebook Fan Page for a double dose of new product inspiration!
