(This is a re-post from last year but it’s still works for  “P”)

There are no options to pick from for the letter “P”. I’ve had this one settled on since the beginning. It’s PINTEREST-YEA!!!!!

Here’s how my descent into the Pinterest “abyss” began. It was October, 2011, when my daughter remarked, “Hey, mom.  I’ve found this neat website I think you might enjoy. It’s called Pinterest. Here, let me show you.” She pulled up the site and showed me how it worked.

“Hmmm”, I said. “I don’t know if it’s something I would like but I’ll give it a try”.

It was downhill after that. I plunged into Pinterest “hell” almost immediately.  I was hooked. I pinned non-stop for days. I needed an intervention but none was forthcoming. I had to go cold turkey. It was hard but after a few days, I was back to normal.  I have slowed down since then but I’m still somewhat obsessed.

Why do I like Pinterest?  For one thing, by paying close attention to what I was pinning, I realized that my true decorating style was not reflected in my home. I learned that I love white with touches of black. I love yellow-green paired with pale sea foam blue. When it came time to redecorate some bedrooms, I didn’t have to think at all.  When it came to the living room and dining room, it was also easy. Lots of black and white.

Pinterest has brought me back to the things I love. I love DIY projects but had gotten away from it for awhile.  I’m b-a-a-a—a-ck. I’ve yet to try a recipe that hasn’t been successful. I love the photographs and the art work. I love the inspirational sayings. There really isn’t anything about Pinterest that I don’t like except it’s addicting lure.

I ask everyone I meet, “Are you on Pinterest?” If they say no, I explain it to them and tell them. You really should check it out.”  Oh, no, I’m sending someone else over the edge.  I should be ashamed.
