Pintrest to Real Life

I love Pinterest!  I avoided joining for as long as possible because I thought it would be a time suck but now I love it!  And with time limits (I have to implement that or 30 mins flies by ha!) it is such a creative outlet and inspiration source.  

Here are a few Pinterest finds on my board that I got around to creating this weekend.  Have you been able to create some of your favorite pins into reality?

Colorful Print: This print showed up and I pinned it right to my "Create" board.  The colors and scripture are so gorgeous so I framed it for our living room to brighten it up.

Guest Basket: We really enjoy hosting friends, family, or whoever needs a place over night and extending hospitality!  So when I saw this basket of guest room essentials I knew I needed to create my own.


I found a spare basket and put in it an extra blanket,lotion, shampoo & conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrush, a bar of soap, and a pair of Ikea slippers.  Hopefully our guests feel welcome and relaxed!

Teapot Vase: Isn't this picture so cheery?  I love the repurposing of the teapot into a vase.

I have an antique buttery yellow teapot and filled it with tulips from my husband.  Wonderful!

Happy creating and inspiration!!  My favorite is seeing a project finished and knowing you put your personal touches to it.  Next on my list are several healthy recipes like Yogurt dipped almond covered bananas, beet hummus, cloth snack bags, and a long way off are bathroom remodels.

  1. I have to agree...I avoided it at first too. But WOW. I just love Pinterest. :-) I've gotten so many ideas for decorating my house...good, frugal ideas. So, I see Pinterest as an investment in my frugality. ;-)
    I'm vising from Proverbs 31 Thursday.

    1. HI Stacy! It is totally inspirational! And I love what I've found to make our home more of a blessing to others or different projects simply for the purpose of being creative. Fun to have you here--going to check out your site!

  2. I love pinterest! How you did your guest basket is awesome!
    I found you via Proverbs 31 Thursdays and am following you via GFC and Pinterest now also. :)

    1. Oh perfect Kendra how fun! Pinterest is seriously the BEST! I never would have thought of that basket on my own. Love it. So glad you're here lady!
