Where I’d Most Like To Be…

Occasionally, I lie to myself. One of the most frequent lies I tell myself is that pinning things to my Pinterest boards while watching TV not only counts as multitasking, but it counts as being productive. It’s research for future baking, crafting, or artistic endeavors, and as such, is absolutely necessary to my creative process. Much better than simply laying on the couch covered in cats. Really. Since I spent most of yesterday daydreaming about curling up for a nap in piles of soft snowy linens, my Pinterest searching was mostly centered around beds and bedrooms; I even found this board, Where To Sleep, that had a number of images that very closely mirrored my daydreams. Fate?

Hey, at least I got a blog post out of it, right? That’s like multi-multitasking. What do you find yourself pinning these days?


Love the Board

As much as I love creating Pinterest inspiration boards, I love looking at what’s inspired other people. Seeing things from another perspective can open a whole new world of possibilities or make you redefine the way you classify different things. Right now I am really enjoying A Bohemian Wedding. No, I don’t plan on ever getting married again, but I could see a lot of these images being great for all sorts of life events. Like my big 30th birthday party in 2016, perhaps?

The breakdown: lots of flowers, billowy fabric, colorful garlands, feathers, ruffles, rustic desserts, and pretty shiny bits. Sounds like an awesome birthday party to me.

Pinsperation!

I may have a minor Pinterest addiction, but to be fair we made collages in college (inspiration boards) and we used them as a way to focus and organize all the ideas we had for a collection, so isn’t Pinterest one giant “book” of inspiration boards? Anyway, that is pretty much how I tackle projects now days.  I updated my “Christmas” board this weekend, here are a few of the images helping me get into my holiday groove.

Wanting More White Sand

I can’t stop looking at this beach Pinterest board entitled A. CASA DE IBIZA: How beautiful it is to do nothing and rest afterward. It makes me miss St. Augustine and my family. Even though I am really not a summer person I love  Crescent Beach. How the blindingly white the sand is at midday. How gorgeously blue grey and cool the water is as you step off of the burning sand. How once you swim out a little you can float around in the swells and take deep breaths of the rich salty air. I even love the layer of salt that I have to clean off my glasses and rinse out of my hair every time I get out of the ocean.

Man, being landlocked and office bound really does suck some days.


Friday Link Love

Friday link love 3

Whew, it’s finally Friday. Things have been crazy at Casa Bucior this week. Our front yard is all dug up from the guys connection our house to the city sewer system, oh the joys of being a homeowner. Bonus – they had to cut out part of our drive way because the pipes needed to run underneath. Supposedly this hole will be fixed soon, but with the daily afternoon showers they “can’t” pour the concrete. I can’t tell you what a joy it has been to have random strangers stomping through the house as they please tracking in dirt and terrifying the cats. Poor Oliver was so scared that he wedged himself under the couch for about four hours. I didn’t get to see it, but Andy said that watching a 20lb cat wedge himself into a maybe 5inch tall space was quite a site to see. But it’s almost weekend time and the work is supposed to wrap up today, and I am really looking forward to two whole days of peace and quiet. Now for the links:

My favorite Pinterest board of the week.
