i got 99 ideas and pinterest's got none

By 7/31/2012

for whatever reason, pinterest has done me wrong.  i can't see my old pins.  and that's a big deal.  i use pinterest to catalog everything i want to try, what i want to wear, what i want to be when i grow up,  what i want for dinner, where i want to go...  i reference my pins a lot - and i usually make my wants happen.  but alas!  i can only go back about 500 pins in, and pinterest isn't answering my frantic emails, so now my desktop looks like my brain exploded on it.  there are 64992g4 images, and here are just a few that i'm digging on.

already doing this at my house, but remember to continue.  and encourage everyone else too.


stairs in my house - should they look like this?  will consider.  positives: it's a way to continue collecting art even though i am running out of wall space

that great artist on etsy i blogged about eons ago - take her art, get creative with framing, fill up a wall.


  1. OMG I would be sooooo upset!! Hope they get it together, reminds me of when Blogger was being lame and had that schleu of problems not long ago. Hope you recover every single photo, love the ones you shared today, that fabric is gorgeous! I would love that on an ottoman or special chair or even pillows, love the last two pictures too..happy pinning!

  2. Bummer about PInterest! On a good note, I love these pics! You have such a fun attitude towards design...thanks for sharing!

  3. I have not ventured into Pinterest, but all my sympathies.

    I do love the brightly painted furniture though. I have tons of furniture (well my mom does) that is old and under used. How do you get the nerve to paint it? I don't know where I got the idea that it would be ruining furniture to paint over the wood, but somewhere that seeped into my consciousness and I live with the terror. Do you have any words to convince me to paint antiques? Or talk me out of it?

  4. ughhh, you know i felt like it happened to me before but I pin so many things that I forget. I know though that there have been pins missing in the past just not sure how many total. hmmm
    These all sound like great ideas, can't wait to see all these ideas come to fruition :)

    Have a great evening!

  5. LOVE that fabric!! More info, pretty please?

  6. Yes, please more info on the Mughal-scene fabric! Love it.

  7. I've had the same problem and thought I was going nuts. A workaround that I've found is to divide things into more boards- you won't be able to see the earlier pins when just looking at all your pins in general but you can see them if you go to the board they're posted to (as long as the board is fewer than whatever their max pins to display is). For example my food board got divided into 2 boards, foods and sweets so I could see all the pins.

  8. What!?! Nooooooo! That can't happen! One, I follow you and love your pins so I need you to keep pinning! Two, now I'm terrified it will happen to me! On another note, what IS that fabric because it is faaabulous!



  9. ohhhh, i love that fabric too! i pulled something very similar for a client's guest room window seat. i can't wait to see it in use! hopefully pinterest gets ironed out for you!

  10. love the paper lantern chandelier...must have...

  11. I have about 100 boards and (I think) all of my pins are there. When I click on Pins, there is only a small selection of the most recent.

    Great post full of fantastic images, do you know who is the maker of the wallpaper in the laundry room?
