How to tell if you’re too busy: you accidentally forget to do your favorite blog series for six weeks. Our last jaunt through the best of Pinterest was in FEBRUARY and I can’t believe I let it go that long. Remember when I used to do this every week? Sigh. Between a couple of clients with long-term design projects, a handful of virtual design jobs, our own house fixing, and the endless to do list that comes with being a functioning adult, this poor blog has kind of gotten pushed to the side. (And let’s not even mention the Etsy shop.) I’ve known for a while that I need to streamline my professional life and maybe it’s all coming to a head. I have that nagging feeling that something needs to go, but I don’t really want to drop anything because I like it all. But then I end up doing too much and the cycle continues.
So, I’ll have to get that sorted out. But not right this minute because it’s going to be sunny and 75 today, and I actually remembered to do Pinterest Picks, so let’s feast our eyes upon them.
First of all, why aren’t there more pink houses around? Actually, I bet they’re common enough in some parts of the world, but why aren’t they where I can see them? The roof tiles and dormer window are delightful, too.
While we’re on the topic of houses, Hubsey and I are thinking about building some more storage in the dining room. A full wall of built-ins is probably a little ambitious for our skillz, but I’m contemplating anyway. He wants an area for a bar and I really want to get my books out of the basement, so it will have to be a mix of shelving and cabinets with some kind of countertop. Decisions! If this one could just appear downstairs one day, that’d be super:
I’m about to buy what they’re selling here with these culottes, which might be crazy because they’re basically wide leg Capri pants and that SHOULDN’T work, but I am so excited. I even like the crop top.
Fun fact: we don’t have a paper towel holder. We throw the roll into a cabinet like a couple of barbarians and then we always forget to buy more because we can’t see them. This tutorial would obviously solve the problem:
Hold the tomatoes, but otherwise give me the delicious egg and avocado bagel!
So what are you doing this weekend? I’m checking on a client’s kitchen early tomorrow, then we have a dinner with friends in the city, and Sunday will hopefully be Put The New Vanity Top In The Basement Bathroom Day. We also need to go to the grocery store somewhere in there, and I’d like to be outside for a while because the weather is glorious. Whatever you end up doing, have fun and I’ll catch you back here on Monday!
