Pinterest should come with a warning!


This beautiful image from Flickr was one of the first ones I pinned to my pinboard, and is it any wonder, it’s marvellous! And the best thing about Pinterest is that it always links back to the original source so you know exactly where to go to find the original.

Seriously. Pure addiction for those of us visually stimulated. Are you the sort to hoard magazines? Do you pore over magazines, soaking up every photo and page, barely noticing the words? Do you rummage through the piles at the newsagent to find the ones that haven’t been thumbed through yet? Do you keep the ‘good ones’ stacked like a precious china plate collection? Have you ever kept scrapbooks, visual diaries and mood boards from all those luscious gorgeous images torn (lovingly) from magazines? C’mon, ‘fess up, I know it’s not just me!

If this sounds like you, then have I got a beauty of an idea for you this weekend.
You’ll find heaps of gorgeous crafty sorts there, there’s a lovely post over at Lark recently that had me ooh-ing and aah-ing. I love seeing how different people’s pinboards start to take on the style of their pinners. Like owning a pet, after a while the people and the pets start to look the same. Stick with me, I’m only new to Pinterest and clearly a little over the top with enthusiasm at the moment!
That’s all I’ve got to say about that. It’s truly magical. It’s wonderful.
It’s highly addictive!

Sometimes I think mood boards are too good to throw away. I found this one online and features one of my current colour obsessions: mustard and gold and yellow

Kate - Oh yeah, totally addictive.
I adore that top image and am about to repin it myself.
Have a wonderful weekend.
