Point of Pinterest

I’ve spent some time recently (a bit too much time actually!) pinning stuff to my Pinterestboards. It’s very absorbing. For those of you who haven’t come across the joys of pinning yet here’s a brief explanation from the site of what it is “Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard. Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.”

Anyway, I thought I’d use ‘pinning’ as my Folksy Friday theme this week. Lots of lovely items follow…

Fabric covered push pins – Hollie Lollie  ‘A set of six pushpins embellished with a button covered in pretty designer 100% cotton fabric. These pushpins are noticeably larger than my other sets measuring 1.7cm each.’

Clear headed sewing pins – The Pincushion  ‘These fab clear head pins are great for adding a touch of glamour to your sewing projects. Also ideal as a gift for someone who loves to sew, or is just starting out.’

‘PIN’ cushion – Sixes and Sevens ‘Don’t worry you don’t need to pay each time you use this fun, useful mini cushion! Just pop in your pin, (or lots of pins) to keep them safe and at hand!’

Cactus Pincushion – Hattifer’s hand sewn gifts  ‘This cute miniature cactus is one plant that doesn’t need watering! It is handmade from felt and is planted in a terracotta pot.’

Vintage Bobby Pins – Josephines  ‘Elegant set of 3 bobby pins unique hand made pieces.’

Heart Shaped Mini Pin Boards – Random Loveliness  ‘Painted wooden heart shapes with added mini cork boards. Perfect for pinning an important memo or photograph to. Complete with twine for hanging on hooks or even door handles.’

    What a great theme. I haven’t ventured into the world of Pinterest yet, but feel I must take a look soon!

    I love all of these! I love looking at Pinterest, but have not gotten around to doing the work to build my own. I’m afraid to add anything else to my online stuff–I’m spending so much time on it now!
