I gotta be honest with you guys for today’s blog post: I’ve been incredibly frustrated with WordPress as of late. It feels like no matter what changes I try to make, or just basic things I would do on a normal basis, something technically always goes wrong. In fact, I expressed my disappointment during a help chat session earlier this morning. Naturally, I know it’s not the fault of the tech I spoke with, but I didn’t know where else to vent my frustration.
To counter that frustration, I decided it was time for a fun blog post. Nothing super researched or with a whole lot of layers. Just some light-hearted, calming fun. We could all use a little break from the norm, right?
Speaking of breaks, I realized just yesterday that I hadn’t blogged a word in almost three weeks, so my apologies for that as well! While it felt good to get away from the laptop at home (my new job requires 100% computer work), I’m ready to get back into my love for all things writing, blogging and history. I just hope these issues with WordPress don’t eventually completely wear me down and I become disenchanted with blogging as a whole. So here’s to staving off any brash decisions and let’s jump right into some super fun Pinterest boards!
I’ve done a few of these posts in the past, but I’m always game to let y’all know what I’ve been up to over there. For example, here are some past “What’s On My Pinterest” posts:
Okay, so it looks like just two prior posts. But they were always fun to put together — both the posts and the boards themselves! Some new topics have joined the fray, and I’m really happy with how the boards look.
I absolutely adore the autumnal season. It’s my favorite out of all four of them. Does it have something to do with the fact that I’m a September baby? Most likely. But it also has everything to do with cooler weather, and that’s what I get the most excited about whenever I see the first leaves begin to fall.
When I was in college in Tennessee, I always made it a point to visit several fall festivals down there. In fact, several members of my family would come down and make a weekend of it. I don’t know why I fell out of the habit now that I’m back home.
Last year I made a blog post titled “All the Pennsylvania Fall Festivals I Want to Visit.” Did I ever get around to visiting any of them? Sadly, no. You better believe I’m going to try and make a few of them this year! I’ve always been attracted to small town life. I think that’s why I loved the Murrysville Fall Festival down in Tennessee so much. Let’s go, Fall Festival Season 2022!
For several years I had an obsession with bows. I wanted bows on my clothes, my jewelry, my bags, and everything in between.
While that phase has since died (I still have a few items with bows left), I still love looking at bows. Big bows, small bows, and bows on, well, everything.
This board may not be the most packed with ideas or moods as some of my others, but they’re still fun to look at. I’ve never considered myself a “tom boy” or a “girly girl,” but I still can dream about bows, right? If I’m ever lucky enough to get married, my dress will definitely have bows!
Enter in the oddest board on my account: Coffee. Why is it odd? Because I absolutely hate drinking coffee. However, I find coffee pics to not only be aesthetically pleasing, but I’d still love to attempt drinking some of these treats in the future.
For years I’ve tried to like the drink everyone else seems to find appealing, but I can’t seem to bring myself to either enjoy or fork over the money for all the stuff that goes with it.
I mean, look at some of those coffee desserts. They actually look more delicious than chocolate ones, and my website used to be called Chocolate & Paper!
Who knows? Maybe some time in the future I’ll learn to like the drink. For now, I’ll stick with loving the smell of coffee, instead.
MCM, or rather Mid Century Modern, is my new favorite decorating style. I set this board up for inspiration as I search for new pieces to furnish my home.
My mom recently commented that this is a passing phase, like the bows. But I’ve always liked this style. And now that I have a steady job with steady, full time hours, I feel like I can finally buy some more grown up furniture.
Not that there’s really anything wrong with IKEA, or that it’s any less grown up. They’ve got some great pieces. However, with how their prices have gone as of late, I know I can get something a bit more long-lasting now for the same price point.
Mid Century Modern style here I come!
Tea’s another oddity on this list. Much like coffee, I’ve got a love-hate relationship with this polarizing beverage. Sometimes I’m in the mood for tea, but most of the time I’m not.
The only tea I seem to want is chamomile with honey when I’m sick. Or at night when I’m getting ready for bed and the only tea I seem to have in the house is caffeinated.
I gotta say though that I love the evolution of tea pots n’at. And for some reason I’ve always loved teapots and tea cups. So much so that when I was a little girl I collected tiny versions of them.
I don’t have those tiny sets anymore, but I do have a couple grown up versions. And one is technically for serving, ironically, coffee. Do I use either for their intended purpose? Nope. They’re my flower vases!
There you have it: my newest Pinterest boards. If you stop by you’ll notice that most of my boards are, well, food related. Everything from cupcakes to chocolate, baking and pastries are represented. I saved some old boards from when I was still working on my last WIP, but I’ll let you all try and figure out which ones were for it! I hope you’ll stop by my Pinterest page to explore and join the adventures over there.
