Pinterest is a virtual pin board where you can collect the things you love (for fun).

Remember a few years ago where you were to get a big bulletin board and put all the things you like on it and what you wanted? Well this helps you to do it easily. You can plan your room - your wish list - and more.
Donna At Discovering the Purpose of Our Lives sent me this. And I thought I'd pass it on to you.


If you use it and like it let me know! You will have to ask them for an invite. I did and it's easy.

Hope you have some fun with it and thanks Donna.


Remember awhile ago I showed you my bottle tree? They had one in this movie - did anyone notice it?

An attitude of gratitude creates blessings.

I received an award from a new friend from Portugal - she is a young and beautiful girl named Raquel Lautenschlager Santana,

Believe it or not - with Google Translator we can actually converse back and forth and we can talk not knowing each others language! Link

Hi Sandie! You always share the most unique things! I know that whenever I stop by, I'll always find something really interesting, or funny, or inspiring, etc.!!
I'll have to take a look at Pinterest...sometime soon! :)

I like Pinterest...it is handy to put on all ideas that I see but also I have a category for gift ideas for me to give and for my family to get me. Who doesn't have a computer any more to use this useful tool.

Catherine said...

This looks like a very fun idea ~ the pinterest. I will check it out some more later this afternoon.

I haven't seen The Help yet but I sure want to. Hopefully next weekend. I have seen a bottle tree before ~ I will have to watch for one in the movie ~ very fun.

Wishing you a lovely weekend Chatty Crone! :)

Hi Sandie! I will definitely check out pinterest. Remembering having one when I was younger and living at home.
The translation tool is great isn't it? :-) Have a lovely weekend my friend.

I started with pinterest a few weeks ago. It is a nifty site. You can find all kinds of things.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I've heard so much about it lately, but I just can't afford any more distractions! I have too many already!~

Sandra said...

it is so amazing we can write in one language and they can read in their own, or vice versa for us.

Debbie said...

I'm currently trying to redo my dining room. Maybe I should try this for inspiration.

TexWisGirl said...

i cannot bring myself to make one more reason for me to sit in front of my pc! :) pin away, people!

Thena said...

I'm just beginning to use Pinterest. Megan kept talking about it and finally yesterday she showed me how to repin. Afraid it may be addicting. lol

Michaele said...

Seems everyone but me has seen The Help. I will look for the bottle tree if EVER I get to see it. I just saw this translator thing on another blog today. How awesome!

Jeanie said...

I did sign-up for Pinterest a few weeks ago, but I haven't really done much with it. It looks like fun, but a real time eater :)
I saw "The Help" but didn't notice the bottle tree.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

I have friends that love pinterest... I just can't get involved with one more thing. LOL! The internet and blogging is an amazing connection, isn't it? Have a great weekend. blessings ~ tanna

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

This sounds interesting and yes I remember the bulletin boards:)

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I am on Pinterest and I am enjoying it. A great place to gather ideas of things you want to do, ideas for gifts, projects, etc! I found a few photos from my blog that others had pinned...I felt honored! I did not notice the bottle tree in The Help but will look for it when I watch it again...I guess when it comes out on DVD. Great movie! hugs, Linda

Ginny said...

Congratulations on the award! It is so cool to get to know people in other countries! So did you go to see The Help?

Raindrops and Daisies said...

Well done on your award Chatty.

Well deserved.

Isn't technology fabulous that you can chat away to someone in a distant land and you don't even speak the same language!

I LOVE Pinterest.
I've found new recipes - which I've actually tried.
I've found great decorating ideas which I am in the process of using.
It's like a never-ending magazine of great ideas!!

Janie2 said...

I love photographs, and now I see another compulsion with Pinterest. I don't know if I should thank you or not! But yes I will use it. Very nice collection, thanks for sharing.

Annesphamily said...

Hi Sandie! You are quite an interesting gal! You always come up with so many unique things over here. I don't have the time or energy for Pinterest but I know lots of bloggers are into it! I still like the old school bulletin boards. I always had one filled during my high school years many moons ago! Ha!
Enjoy the weekend.
Hugs Anne

Knitty said...

I've been hearing and seeing this more and more lately. I will have to check into. Thanks.

Mimi said...

DID you get alot of rain from IRENE????
I wondered about you. My daughter in Florida got minimal rain. I at first thought the entire state of Florida was going to take a direct hit, so I was nervous.
Have a great weekend

SweetMarie said...

I will be checking out the Pinterest, thanks.

Mevely317 said...

Oooh, I LIKE this site! --
I dropped by this morning; and sensed a "habit" coming on, so I backed out verrrrry carefully.

Will definitely re-visit. Won't you keep us up-to-date on your "pins"?!

PS - Congrats on the new award!

Ann said...

I already use Pintrest and I like it. I don't do as much pinning as some people do but I like how easy it is to keep track of things I find on the internet.

Susan said...

Hi Sandie...I'm going to look for that bottle tree when I see The Help.

Going to check out Pinterest.

Take care. Susan

The Boston Lady said...

Sandie, congrats on your well-deserved award. I am so mixed up on my time that I find myself on the computer at crazy times, at least if I look at EST. I have always wanted to look at Pinterest, but have taken the time to do so. When I get back, it will be on my list. Now I go to bed.... Ann

Chris Graham said...

I am now on their waiting list! You are the fourth person to recommend it.
