P is for Pinterest

When I first considered participating in the Blogging from A-Z Challenge
I thought that I would make my theme my interest in
I made mine with Lemonade and no alcohol since it was
Easter and Kids were there!
Originally I thought that perhaps I could find a craft or recipe or organizational tip,
 DO IT, 
then post about it on my blog!
Ya right! I have time for all that!
I always think I can manage more!  

What is Pinterest you ask?
 Pinterest is a virtual personal bulletin board where you pin ideas that speak to you.
Similar to back in the day when you would clip a picture from a magazine and place it in a file folder
titled "Ideas for my Garden" or "Recipes".

for St. Pat's breakfast 

Where do these ideas come from?
 Pinterest is a collection of pictures with links back to BLOGS!
How about a grilled buffalo chicken sandwich?

What kinds of things do you find on Pinterest?
My favorite things are Recipes, decorating ideas, stuff I can make or do with my grand kids,
craft and quilting pictures and projects.

Jello Shots
Watermelon shots

 But you can find exercises, inspirational quotes, pictures,
Tips to take and/or pose better pictures, and the list goes on and on.
You can find full patterns for a ton of projects
like this sweet little apron

I've written about Pinterest before........I had a Pinterest party 
shows some really cool party foods
that I made for Bunko.  Delicious and successful!

Mashed potato martini
How about a little mashed Potato Martini?

I've recently joined the ranks of folks who have smart phones and one of my very favorite things about Pinterest is that I can access if from my phone.  I've actually been at the grocery store, pulled out my phone, pressed the Pinterest button and pulled up a recipe I had pinned, so I could buy the necessary ingredients.  
Go Here to read the very first post and see more projects from Pinterest.

Try out Pinterest..........You'll love it!



  1. I love Pinterest, but I had to wean myself off of it because it was stealing so much of my time!

    1. I understand completely!
      I haven't been on it as much lately either, but when I need an idea it is the first place I go!

  2. I have a pitiful collection of 4 boards on Pinterest. Looks like I'm not interested in anything! My 2 best are one for my square-foot gardening and one for purple and gold rooms. (For that one, I was trying to figure out how to paint our bar area to celebrate our college years.)

    1. Hmmmmm, I wonder if there are any geneology posts on Pinterest?
      Might be right up your alley!

  3. Check out the house porn and food porn apps. Those are fun to drool over rooms & foods too!

    1. Oh my goodness Kristy! With great trepidation I went to pinterest and searched for House and Food porn. I've got to admit I was a little afraid of what I would find!!!! lol
      I was pretty amazed to learn a whole new term to define FOOD! I had to look it up!

      Web definitions

      Food porn is a provocative term variously applied to a spectacular visual presentation of cooking or eating in advertisements, infomercials, cooking shows or other visual media, foods boasting a high fat and calorie content, exotic dishes that arouse a desire to eat or the glorification of food ...
