These Are A Few Of My Favorite Pins

I came to Pinterest later than everyone else, I think.  But I have made up for lost time!

I love to go to Pinterest and browse.  I usually find a recipe or two and I always find a pretty picture to repin, or a DIY idea, or a craft project to try, or a cleaning or organizing tip.  Here are some of my favorites.

Recipes (I've pinned 68!)

Gramercy Tavern Gingerbread

I made this for dessert on Christmas and it was delicious!  Rich and dense and so gingery.  With fresh whipped cream, it was the perfect Christmas dessert.

Crafts (I've pinned 19!)

Fabric Easter Eggs!
I snagged this from Claudia at Mockingbird Hill Cottage (thanks Claudia!).  I haven't tried it yet, but it looks easy and the eggs are so pretty!

Do It Yourself (I've pinned three!)

how to make mason jar soap container.    Now need one for dish soap and hand soap next to the kitchen sink.
Icing On The Cake
I made one of these for my kitchen and I love it!

This is an amazing floor cleaner!

Organization (I've pinned four!)

Garage Shelving. This would be amazing!
I want to build these for our storage unit!

Pretty Things (I've pinned 11!)

Amethyst bottle collection
Isn't this GORGEOUS?

Photos I Have Taken (I've pinned seven!)

I like being able to share Charles' work!

There is so much to look at and do on Pinterest!  I hope you've enjoyed some of my favorites.  Now if I could only figure out how to put a Pinterest button on my blog, I would be perfectly happy!  Some of you know how to do this - can you help me out?!?


  1. Pinterest is such a great organizing tool/filing system. I don't need to cut things out of magazines anymore, when I can pin the picture and instructions on pinterest and store it on the computer! Now if there was only a way to get all the OLD stuff out of my files and into pinterest... :-)

    Thanks for sharing a peek at your Pinterest site.
    I do love all the creativity one can find there.
    I can't help you with the pin it button, but it does give instructions on how to do it. Have you tried it?

  3. I came late to Pinterest too Paula. It has got me into Tumblr too. Now I have a tumblr blog. I have to be careful though and not spend too much time on the computer and remember to live my life! BTW I am not Catholic but I am liking the new Pope.xo, Olive


I love to receive comments - please tell me what you think!
