Pinterest Day 2

Ok, so I know Wed is Pinterest Day, but I had to share this today! I have  a little board called "Obsessed with nail art" (I'll share it another day). It's kinda crazy how popular this board pin in particular. It's a great idea from a great blog, but I'm a little baffled as to why so MANY repins. Not that I'm complaining or that it's undeserving, but whoa!
Today, I got 225 email notifications of repins...I had to turn off that part of my email settings. And each email notification can contain multiple repins in it. And I went to look at how many repins I have on that particular pin...wait for it...6377. And while I was looking that up, I got 2 more email notifications.
Now, some of you professional pinners out there, may be thinking...big deal!? But, it just seems crazy to me! Anyway, here is the big pin...enjoy!
I really do think it's a great idea & I've used it! So I guess, well deserved Chloe's Nails!!
You can click on the pic to go to chloe's nails' blog. It really is a great one! Maybe I'll share the board next week on Pinterest Day!!   ...maybe not???

Friday Faves...

I love me some Friday Faves. This week, it's vintage kitchen. I have an addiction to things that go in my kitchen. Salt n pepper shakers, towels, anything tea related, dishes, mismatch silverware, vintage untensils...anything. So, I thought I'd share some cool finds from!!

Wednesday is Pinterest day...

Pinterest Logo

As many of you, I have a bit of a Pinterest problem! It's like going on a treasure hunt everytime. Just love it!!
So, in the interest of sharing my obsession & furthering yours, I have decided to make Wednesday Pinterest day. I will be sharing pins, boards, people I follow & pretty much anything & everything to do with pinterest.

Cakes...who doesn't love cake!!?? Well, I'm sure some of you, but mostly today, I wanted to share the beauty! I am not a big fan of super elaborate cakes, but I can appreciate the time & talent it takes to make & decorate them!! My style just tends to be simple & rustic. Mostly, I'm just looking for something I can do. I can bake like crazy, but I'm not that great in the decorating department. So, these are fairly simple, fairly doable cakes that I would love for any special occasion. I have to do one this weekend, so we'll see how that turns out! I also may try one of these for Valentine's Day. Enjoy...

It is a new adventure for my family for sure, considering they were all born & raised in San Diego (myhubby & my girls) and well, I lived there for over 20 yearsso...I was only 1 when we moved...jk...I wish!!!
