Inspiration: Pinterest

{Photograph by Steven Meisel for Vogue, from}

I've been subtly addicted to the website Pinterest as of late - well, me and some of my friends that is! What is Pinterest you may ask? It's a social catalog service. Think of it as a virtual pinboard — a place where you can post collections of things you love, and "follow" collections created by people with great taste.

So, as I've been researching online, or just browsing for fun, I "pin" an image that I like to one of my "boards". It's been a great way to visually catalog and organize the things that inspire me, that I want to capture. Also, the source website link is attached to each image, to take you on a web browsing extravaganza! So far, I've got boards called Books Worth Reading, For the Home, Pattern Savvy, Letterpress, etc., and the list keeps growing! I've added a link on my blog, on the right hand side that says "Follow my pins on Pinterest"

Swing on over to my Pinterest boards, when you're looking for some eye candy! There's a whole network of other people's boards there too for loads of inspiration!


  1. I'm totally obsessed, too! I'm going to head on over and look you up right now. (If you care to look for me, I'm "thoughtandfound" or Sheila)

  2. Yay! Another fan of Pinterest! Thanks for giving me info to find you! Great stuff! I'm starting to follow some of your boards. Happy Inspiration building!!


Hi there - I'd love to hear from you! What say you?
