Pinterested

Last week an email pinged into my inbox telling me that I had been invited by a darling friend to view her boards on Pinterest. The name Pinterest rang a bell, and it occurred to me that I had read it on a blog late last year, but I hadn't take the time to google it and find out more . Intrigued to see what it was and what my friend had on her boards, I clicked the link and immediately fell head over heels in love! Pinterest is a virtual pin board where you can create collections of things that you love and you can follow collections created by others. You can collect and share anything and everything such as dream homes, travel inspiration and your favourite cakes.


As a very visual person I adore inspiration boards and look books. If I see something in a magazine that I like, I remove it with my trusty Stanley knife and it either gets pegged to the bunting or bakers twine on my inspiration boards or stuck into my look books. I found these so fantastic whilst planning my wedding and I can only imagine the fun I would have had planning the big day if only I found out about this fabulous site before. 


It would be fair to say that I am completely and utterly obsessed with everything Pinterest. If like me you enjoy favourite-ing and bookmarking photos of things that you make your heart sing on Flickr, Etsy, websites and blogs come and join in the fun! You can request an invitation here.

Thank you Dawn for introducing me to the world of pinning, I love it! 

Love Morwenna

  2. I was trying to join it a couple of weeks ago, but my computer was being so slow that I gave up. Looks like my kind of thing though, so I will definintely give it another try.

    Wanted to tweet you yesterday, but twitter keeps playing up for me too. Sometimes there is no way of leaving a tweet! What I wanted to say was poor you with the cardi! Gave me a laugh though - sorry! What a rotten thing to have someone say to you.
    Reminds me of what a hairdresser said to me after I became a mum. We were chatting when he said 'you are quite slim now, were you slim before?'.
    Felt like I wanted to cry. Not sure if it was an out and out insult or a very backhanded compliment.

    I have clothes that make me look lumpy, so I only wear them at home and wear what I call my 'thinner clothes' out and about!

  4. I see people talk about pinterest and didn't have a foggy clue of what they were speaking. A couple of weeks ago, I requested an invitation but still have not received one, so I will wait til they'll have me, I guess!! But yes, I love it!! What a great idea!! What happened with the cardi---I may have to go back and read old tweets. I think I may have missed something!
    Have a lovely week dear Morwenna!! Your positive spirit and energy are so welcoming on these tragic days of such bad news---wonderful to step away for a few moments and cherish the simplest of joys!!
    Love,
    Joann in CO

  6. OK this is something I really need to do. Imagine having a collage of all my favourite finds at my finger tips. I wonder if I just have the photos if it will satisfy me not to shop? Not happening!
