Pinterest ~ part one

{this image I could file under Great thrifted finds, if only I had a pinboard…}

A virtual inspiration board…

Eyecandy wherever you look….
I’m hooked on Pinterest!

You probably have heard about it so many times,
but for the people who don’t know what it is, take a look here.
So where is my brand new-oh-so-pretty-and-inspiring-pinterest board, you might think?
Well, believe it or not,
I’m on their waiting list…
Waiting is not something I’m good at…

And looking at other people’s pinboards is not helping,
it only makes me want to have one for myself even more.
{Warning: before clicking on these links, it can be dangerous, you are hooked before you know it…}
Have a stroll around Brenda’s pinboard,
or Kasey’s inspiring pictures….
Take a look at what Maureen has pinned,
or what’s on Sarah’s board…

It’s Inspiration with a capital I.

So when I put my name down, requesting an invitation,
I expected to get an email saying something like:
Hi Maureen! Welcome to Pinterest!
Click here to start your pinboard!
But instead I got this:
Thanks for joining the Pinterest waiting list.
We’ll be sure to send you an invite soon.
In the meantime, you can follow us on Twitter for
Pinterest news and updates.
You can also explore a few pinboards.
We’re excited to get you pinning soon!
- Ben and the Pinterest Team
I think I’ll have to email him back…
Dear Ben,
it’s me, Maureen.
I really would like to get my own pinboard,
pretty please,
so I can start collecting
all these wonderful images the web is full with.
And thanks for making such a great website!
Warm regards,
{do you think the xx will help me speed up to the top of the list?
I put them there, just in case…}

So if anyone of you know Ben, could you please tell him I’m waiting?
He knows how to find me.
Just look on the waiting list….

See you soon!


{and for you my dear blog readers, the xx are always there, no strings attached}


Extra note: I found another great board, look what Melissa has on hers!

*Extra extra note: I have my lovely boards now longer than 1,5 years and still love it!
You can find Daydream Living under Maureen Charlie.

    Yeah Pinterest must be addictive. I think I could waste a lot of time there. They are clever with their invitations and making you wait, thereby making it exclusive and much longed-for. Very smart people. :) I hope you get your invitation SOON and can put lovely images here for us.

    Hi Maureen, I’ve heard several other bloggers rave about Pinterest. I spend 8 hours a day on the computer at work and then come home to blog a bit so that’s about all the computer time I can handle. I still like going through magazines, cutting out lovely pictures and pasting them inspiration. Paper, scissors and glue are such simple and lovely things at times. :) Happy day to you, Tammy
