Oh, my poor blog. Every day I see things all over the place that inspire me for posts that never materialise so, like my blog (and like my house work!) today’s Pinteresting inspiration is about neglect. Rustic Abandonment from Retro Underdog is a filled with abandoned beauty.
Today, because I have neglected my little blog a bit, I want to feature one of my own boards. Its entitled relax and its very apt for how I would like to feel at the moment after an overly emotional week.
The pictures on this board let me get lost and go far away from the disappointment, confusion and worry of everyday and into places of peace and calm where I wish every soul could be, always.
A lot of these pictures also feature books, which I have, since moving to Amsterdam, found tremendous comfort in have become my guilty pleasure. There is nothing better than finding a book you cant put down, curling up in a cozy corner with a cup of tea or lying out in the sun on a relaxing summer holiday and reading for hours with no worries of what’s to be done.
I don’t know what I find so comforting about pictures of people with cups of coffee in their hands, wrapped up in woolly jerseys and fluffy socks or reading on balcony’s overlooking pine forests. I can get lost in these types of pictures of hours and this Pinterest board is filled with exactly that.
The board to Rustic cottage and the name says it all. It conjures imaginings of quite weekends out in the country side, away from the world. Sitting outside in the sun or curled up in front of a roaring fire while the rain pours outside. Heavenly.
She’s the owner of Local Milk and the creator of these amazing boards. Gather is filled with gorgeous table settings, dinner parties, fairy lights and people enjoying each others company and is just one of the many boards she has that I find myself getting lost in for hours at a time.
Pinterest blows my mind! Even though I don’t really see the full point of it and rarely do I ever go back and look at the first few pins on a board of 1,641 I still love it and would be lost if I couldn’t hoard pictures like I can on Pinterest.
I tend to get over excited with the following of boards too and again, rarely go back and appreciate what these boards have to offer (I think this may also be due to fear of being sucked into a black hole of link after link of wonderful things to pin and discover). So, for this very reason I have started “Pinteresting” where I will feature the best of my Pinterest follows so that everyone can feel the joy I do when I find a board dedicated entirely to something I thought only I loved.
The first of these will come tomorrow but in the mean time, a sneak peak. She’s a freelance photographer, stylist, writer and recipe developer based out of Chattanooga, Tennessee. Her blog, Local Milk is dedicated to recipes and gorgeous food photography, but her Pinterest boards are about far more! Even her blog logo makes me happy.
