Vintage Illustrations Galore–And A Barn That Wants To Be Cottage

Have you heard about Pinterest?  Those who love visual beauty will delight in the variety on this web site.  Those who “pin” create boards of pictures around themes, ideas or even a flow of their current consciousness.  Too much fun!

Follow me on Pinterest!  My favorite things can be viewed by linking to the web link below.  Currently I am pinning to two boards–one sharing some of my favorite vintage illustrations from years of collecting.  The second board is quickly filling with pictures of Farm Grove, our “cottage” barn, and pins I have re-pinned from other sites that reflect a cottage lifestyle.

Pinterest is especially fun because creativity and inspiration is shared by others with similar interests.  Enjoy!
