I was "pinning" before there was Pinterest

I've been "pinning" long before Pinterest was around. As far back as I can remember I've loved to look at decorating magazines. And just as long I've been tearing pages out and saving them for future ideas. Over the years I have organized them in plastic sleeves in a binder. Now that I am in my "forever" house I have been incorporating the ideas in our home. As the ideas get realized I throw the pages away to make way for more pages. I do have a few decorating books I've purchased over the years but I prefer magazines. I love sitting at Barnes & Nobles with my Cafe Mocha and flip through magazines. If I see two or more ideas, I buy the magazine. I have ideas in my binder from magazines dating back to 1998. With Pinterest I don't need to buy as many magazines but it is still a pleasure while I'm sipping my coffee.

While I love my current headboard it's fun to collect more ideas.

Who says you need to use all the drawers.

Look! I found a use for the those extra drawers.
Imagine a whole all like this filled with books, pictures, and knick knacks.

Fun way to add your own touch to a plain denim shirt.

One of my favorite magazines. Always has fun, inspiring ideas.

Hey that's my name. From a past issue of Flea Market Style.
