Pinned Ya!

If y'all follow me on Twitter, you probably noticed that I popped off something about Pinterest not making any sense to me the other day. Remember? Yeah, I'm kind of famous for sticking le foot in le mouth, so I am here to say: I spoke before I inquired.

I joined the site because of prompts from several friends and let's just say ... I spent the entirety of Levi's nap time the other day pinning.

Oh my lanta, I just can't stop looking at all of the lovelies floating around out there! It's just fascinating, really. I had to familiarize myself with the site for about an hour before I figured out what was going on (I was the same way with Twitter when it was brand new), but now there is no going back. It's simply too much fun! Especially if you are on the hunt for specific ideas.

My Boards consist of these 7 categories so far:
~Party Ideas
~House-y Things
~Kitchen Cutes
~Tablescapes
~Nifty Gifties
~Makes Me Happy
~Dream Rooms
~Weebie Boy

I find myself browsing tablescapes and party ideas more than anything (surprise, surprise). It's just so much fun! Take a look at some of my favorite things I pinned over the weekend.

Wow. Wow. WOWAZA! If this isn't the most romantic, dreamy little setting on earth, I don't know what is. I just love it and I want to be in that picture dining with my loves right this minute. Swoon!

This tablescape blew me away. It's just so unique! I would definitely put different chairs with this (probably gold), but I love the looks of it. Anything overflowing and voluminous always sits well with me.

Shabby Chic is just so inviting and cutesy. I love the simplicity of this table in using hankies and doilies for the table runner. Such a great idea.

Let me tell you, I could pin tablescapes and settings ALL DAY LONG.

I found some other goodies, too.

Can I just say that in my daydreams THIS is where I visit on a daily basis? Seriously. Ah, so gorgeous. Anyway, something (among the many things) I loved about this is the "balloon ivy" going on here. Well, that's what it reminded me of anyway. Oh, what a spot to hold a party. Gimme gimme!

Dream room. Dream room. DREAM ROOM. Perfection. Period. End of story. GAH!

I died and went to Kitchen Heaven when I laid eyes upon this beaut. Oh, the pretty is almost too much to handle.

Not that I have ANY more room in my house, but since we did away with the office to make Levi's big boy room, I've been looking for a small secretary to maybe put in our room. For bill paying, letter writing and whatnot. This one is not small by any stretch, but I loved it, so I pinned it.

I thought this would be a super cute wedding gift for all of those summer weddings! Adorable? Yes.

Well, now that you have peek into some of my favorite finds this week, share with me some of yours! Are you on Pinterest? What do you find yourself browsing the most?
