The slow awakening of (P)interesting inspirations

The blog was a bit tired. So the blog slept a bit. A long bit. Half a year bit. Now the blog hits the snooze button. At least once. But like its owner often does in the mornings, it will probably hit the snooze button again and again for quite a few times before maybe finally waking up, or then (which is far more likely) fall asleep again.

What woke up the blog and (probably more importantly) me was the new(ish?) website Pinterest. I have been aware of it for a while, but thought that since I don't seem to have the time nor the inspiration to write any blog posts or spend much time socializing on the internet, I should probably just stay away from it. But then yesterday I had a closer look and was hooked. Since I only started using it last night there is not much to see on my page yet, but hopefully soon.

In case you are now wondering what I am talking about here is what they say themselves about the site:

What is Pinterest?

Pinterest is a virtual pinboard.
Pinterest allows you to organize and share
all the beautiful things you find on the web.
You can browse pinboards created by other people
to discover new things and
get inspiration from people who share your interests.

At the moment there has been talk about redecorating the home. Apparently someone else might be moving in (shh! quiet... it's not "official" yet and no, it's not another cat this time, although this one is somewhat hairy too) and it'd be nice to have a home that isn't just "my" home, but "our" home. I see Pinterest being a great tool to help out a bit with this project. A way of collecting and storing ideas and inspirations in one place. And last night I noticed it will work as a great "shopping list" too. Not to mention for travel, nail, style, hair, photography, baking... ideas and inspirations. One minor problem will be to find the time and money to make reality of these inspirations, but I can at least start by dreaming and then something will eventually become reality I'm sure.
