Pinterest Around the House

Pinterest has become my best friend again, especially during my 25 minute lunch break.  I feel like I'm plenty sociable with my coworkers, but, during my brief lunch, I just need a bit of uninterrupted quiet time.  Which, of course, means that I scarf down a Lean Cuisine at my desk while perusing Pinterest for *must pin* items.

Lately, I've been pinning tons of "For the Home" ideas.  My hope this year is to actually purchase my first house.  Hope, not goal.  But, hope.  I'm praying like a mad woman about this huge decision.  It may work out.  It may not.  We shall see.  I'm planning to start getting serious when things settle down in the summer.  Until then, I'm pinning like crazy, anything and everything that gets my attention.  I would love to purchase a fixer-upper in an old, Spanish moss draped neighborhood, that I can make my own.  Basically, I will be renovating on a seriously fixed teacher's income, and I know a lot of this is probably out of the question.  Some of it , though, I might be able to modify and fix up in my own way. 

My ideas...

  1. Found your blog through OHP Link up with The Vintage Apple. I love your pins! I really love spanish moss too. My Mom lives in FL and I love seeing the moss hanging off the trees. It adds such an ambiance to the scenery!

    Happy Hump Day!

  5. If I could do one thing over while buying my house it would be to pick one with a big front and back porch! Other than that, I was pretty surprised at how easily we were able to find the house we were looking for! PS - I MAY have to get a built in wine cooler for my kitchen like in that picture.

    1. That's probably what I'm hoping for the most! Even if it's just one, I really hope to have a porch! And, too funny...I didn't even catch that, but I see it now! :) Happy Wednesday!
