White Vignettes and a Pinterest Puff


 what is the problem with Pinterest?
waste of time or inspiration?
inspiration or jealous fits of I need that!
I need that or I simply must have it!

 One of the best pins I have seen is the one that says Pinterest is like getting a new magazine in the mail every day. That is what I would call it, new inspiration and recipes every day. I think it actually helps me get my rear in gear and get going. I also saw a comment where it was said Pinterest will be the end of blogging. NOT! I have to disagree with that. What I love most about Pinterest is how so many (most) link directly to a blog, with step by step instructions. Now..will that increase followers? Probably not but definitely blog traffic. It has consistently been in the top 5 referrals for me.

 I tend to forget most of the projects I hope to do, but once a week I actually go back to a board of my own and look at what I have pinned, then try to do one! I know.....never an end to motivation!  This is the best thing about pinning, at anytime you can go back and "remember" what it is you like and want to do, to bake, or your favorite decorating ideas. This is a flower ball, via Pinterest that I wanted to try as a possible wedding idea for my daughter.  I used a 5 inch ball, lots of hot glue and about 500 mini cupcake liners. I placed two liners together and twisted then glued around the ball, try to keep them straight up, I found I was beginning to angle mine to much which left an odd shape in places. If you find a spot that is a little light...just fill it in later.





 I think it is actually quite a fun little touch.


 I can go into any room with a vintage feel, and could be done in any color or color combo.



 Sometimes the simplest little touch adds so much, like the old spool with a tape measure wrapped around it. Saw it , pinned it, did it...done!
