I recently got hooked on PINTEREST. It began with seeing the little button on some fellow blogger's sidebar. Before long a couple of my FB friends were talking about it, so I wandered over to check it out. I love it! It's like a combination of collecting, list making, bulletin boards, or saving pages from favorite magazines, all combined in one place.
I can visualize things I dream about like travel, art, and photography. There are ideas on home decor, cooking, crafts, fashion, and so much more. I've found images of things I remember from my childhood. There are photos of my current style of decorating and photos of my dream style. It's had the effect of waking up parts of my personality and history that I'd forgotten about.
Today I found an image of vintage Bingo cards. It took me right back to my mom's tiny kitchen when I was about 6 years old. I was seated at the table with a Bingo card and some buttons. The numbers were being called out over the radio. The sun was streaming in through the small window over the sink. Beside the sink, on the wall, was a little Dutch girl memo pad that I'd made at school. Her apron was the note pad and above it was a paper tube with a short pencil in it. Those little pencils that used to come with board games. My momma loved that memo pad. My new hobby took me on a surprise visit back to my childhood. I can't wait to see where it will take me tomorrow.
