Great Pins

A ton of people are on Pinterest. I was slow getting the message but when I found it, I hopped on board and am loving it.

If you don't know..... Pinterest is a site where you can pin all your favorite things on boards that you set up, you know, sort of like your own personal web bulletin board.

I use mine a lot. I have a board for food and the recipes help me to decide new dishes to try.

I also have a board for household tips and have found a lot of good ways to clean, store, organize and lordy, I needed lots of help in that.

One board is home decor and I have used several of those to help make my home more enjoyable... and I could go on and on.

I have decided that, ever so often, when I get so stuck in a rut and have nothing new to post, that I might share with you some of the wonderful things I have pinned on my boards. Okay, so you are bored (he he, get it BORED/BOARD)already... I don't think you will be but if you are.... just let me know...If you like it please leave me a comment. I am such a sucker for comments!!!

Today I will pick a few of the home decor ones

I love the look of the apples with the basket and what appears to be herbs... so perfect for a kitchen.

These lanterns came from Pottery Barn. Love them with candles but just look at the one with the potted flowers in it.

If I can find a solid color umbrella like this I want this for my front door for spring.

What a perfect way to store children's books.

And, this bedroom. I love it and would stay in there all day if I had it. You know, I could do this with my guest room upstairs. hmmmm.

Hope you enjoyed these pictures from Pinterest. Perhaps you saw something you might like to replicate. If you'd like to see all my boards go to

Now for a couple of my photos sharing with you Tea Talk Thursday over at

Today I am having tea out of a very special cup.

I am remembering my colon cancer back in 2002. One day, after treatment, my daughter-in-law and I hit a couple antique stores in Shockhoe Bottom in Richmond. It was my last day of chemo and there was lots to celebrate.

I am so grateful for my cancer being discovered when it was and for the chemo to have taken care of it.

Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
Joshua 1:9


  1. What a beautiful thing to be a cancer survivor. I'm glad for you. I too love Pinterest and your 'pins' are captivating. I must go check your boards out. I have an abundance of things pinned to mine =).

  2. How do I get on your Pinterest board? I must be missing click on?

  3. Oh, Mom, what a wonderful post! Yes, I love that umbrella with the flowers! The apples and herbs very pretty! And, hey, if you do the upstairs guest bedroom like that one picture, I'm moving back in! :-) Just kidding! It's pretty enough for Princess Grace! Glad you posted the teacup from your celebratory trip to Shockoe. It's wonderful to remember the triumph over that awful disease. Love you so much!

  6. Lantane, I love that verse from the Bible. Thank you for posting it.

    WHat a sweet post! I love all your entrys from Pinterest. Very interesting. But, most of all, I really enjoyed the pictures of Elbert and the ones of you both! He must have been a ton of fun...and each day must have been a joy for you to be together.

    Wish I could find an umbrella like that to make for my front door. Isn't it great?

    Glad you kicked that cancer right out the door!!!!! My husband did, too! God is with us even though we wonder sometimes.

    Marie is so pretty in the picture!



  7. I don't do Pinterest (yet), but love all of your 'pins'. I especially like the bedroom, fit for a queen and the umbrella door decoration!!
    Hooray for surviving colon cancer!!!

  8. I have been playing a little on Pinterest but had to get dtr in law to show me the ropes. I could have so much fun if I didn't have to work.

  9. HI Latane, I haven't been to Pinterest yet --but may get to it sometime. I truly don't have anymore time in my life to keep adding other things. I love my blogging but it does take up much of my time. AND--I joined Facebook not long ago--and like it also... These plus by gardening, birding, traveling and hiking all just keep me very busy....

    BUT--I love the 'pins' you chose to share today... Thanks so much.

  10. Thank you for visiting my blog! I am your newest follower. Hope you will visit me again and follow. Have a great day. Tiffany


I hope you will visit often and leave a comment when you do. My blogging friends always put a smile on my face.
