My Pinterest Problem

by Lorraine Bartlett / Lorna Barrett / L.L. Bartlett

I have a commitment issue with Pinterest. Sometimes I love it and sometimes I just don't even think about it.

I've hired a personal assistant and she thinks I should take more of an interest in Pinterest. And so I've been playing with it and realized why I have a Pinterest problem. 

It's a HUGE time suck.

All those wonderful recipes of wonderful food.



All those wonderful shabby chic pictures of homes and accessories.



All those pictures of tile.



All those pictures of kitchens.



Of course, I'm also thinking about my books while I'm searching the gazillion pictures. The cupcakes are what Kathy Grant could make in her inn, Swans Nest. That bathroom could be one of the cozy bathrooms in the inn. The fireplace in the parlor has Victorian tile as a fireplace surround. And the kitchen above is exactly how I pictured the renovation in the inn where Kathy will prepare breakfast (and the food for weddings, showers, and other parties as part of her catering service).

I also get ideas for graphics.

So, are you on Pinterest? If so, what are the pictures that capture YOUR attention?
