in clover: interest in pinterest?
If you haven't yet given pinterest a try, it's a lot of fun. I've had an account for some time now but am really just now getting into it.
I "pin" party ideas, things I'd like to make some day, recipes, ideas for upcycling vintage items and inspirational images. What do you pin?

When I had my brick and mortar antique shop, I used to keep three ring binders full of pages and images torn from magazine articles. I could show clients inventive ways they might use some of the pieces I had for sale and I also enjoyed the inspiration for myself.
Pinterest is like a virtual version of my three ring binders! I had a friend who kept a similar binder filled with ideas for her home. She carried it with her when she shopped. Now she has the same information with her always...on her Ipad and her smart phone, via pinterest.
If you decide to give it a whirl, I wish you Happy pinning!

The ways we store information sure has changed dramatically in the last five years...we "pin" digital images instead of ripping pages from magazines, we often text instead of placing a phone call, we share photos on Facebook instead of printing them and putting them in albums....it's a strange and fascinating new world. But in the end, I think we all are still looking for the same thing...connection and a little inspiration! Pinterest and Facebook provide plenty. I enjoy my participation in the communities I find on these sites. How about you?
peace and all good, Lisa
