My Pinteresting Life

Now that I've discovered -- and learned how to use -- Pinterest, I am spending way more time on it than I ought to!  I'm an image pack rat, however, so this gives me a place to "store" my favorites somewhere other than my already overly-crowded hard drive, nevermind tearing pages out of magazines (stacks of both grow like mushrooms in my home ... torn-out pages and magazines).

Click on the pic to visit my Pinterest home page.

Anyway -- Pinterest is an awesome tool!  I'm just not sure yet how it's going to fit in with my blogging ... although it has certainly generated some new fans for my blog.  Building a "board" on Pinterest is like compiling one big blog post.

I'll never run out of images, of that I'm sure.  One way or another, there's plenty of grist for for the mill of my curator's imagination!

On-line magazine love: Ivy & Piper

Do you still miss Domino magazine? 

(Me too!)

Check out this on-line publication from the design minds over at Ivy & Piper of Australia.  (Click the pic to access).

Seems to me a lot of really good and interesting design comes out of Australia.

Peter Pan collars ... stylish and sweet!

Elle Fanning
Marie Claire magazine

Love Alexa Chung's ladylike skirt!

Michelle Williams
(looking fetchingly Mia Farrow-like)

Peter Pan collar + velvet = timeless!

I'm glad this look is back in style!
