After seeing so many great images coming from Pinterest, and hearing of so many people buying the most amazing items they found via Pinterest, I decided I simply could not stay away from this source of eye candy any longer. So I have been pinning like crazy since yesterday. Although I first felt that this was 'yet another social media site', I now realize that it is a great source as well as a handy tool, no more heaps of folders on my computer with 'hairstyles' 'sewing inspiration' 'dream house' 'amazing garments', etc, etc. I also made a board where I will be posting scans of my vintage photograph collection, and I think I will make a board with all the covers of magazines I own as well.
