50,000 Pinterest Followers & Hipster Cacti
I’m celebrating today because I reached a big milestone on Pinterest with 50,0000 followers. Wait a minute. Make that 53,137. Golly gosh.
“Celebrating” is probably the wrong word as I scramble to write this post in my old maternity nightie, gingerly sipping weak coffee while listening to blocked noses and much hacking and wheezing. It’s been a long week. But yay for Pinterest!
I’m one of those people who finds scrolling through Pinterest rather relaxing, and while I repin inspirational homes, kids’ crafts and beautiful design, I don’t have the slightest urge to recreate anything I find.
It’s just an extension of my magpie habit, and a rather practical one at that as it’s replaced the piles of torn recipes, handy hints and assorted “rather interesting things” I find in papers and magazines. (Mind you, I still have a few piles of those things to go through.)
Today I thought I’d share some of the images I’ve pinned over the last couple of days. You can see that there is a running theme of plants and greenery. I posted about my obsession with indoor plants a few years ago, back in 2011 when I was using the word “pinteresting” (vintage Wee Birdy makes me cringe). I’d been watching Annie Hall and a few other ’70s films, and the indoor plant trend has really taken off since then.
I’m still looking for my ideal mid-century inspired planter. If I could design my own product range, that would be it. I collection of affordable and beautiful planters in a range of sizes. Anyone?
Tell me: are you one of my 53,137 followers on Pinterest? Do you love it or hate it? Or both? (The love/hate relationship with Pinterest is a well-established phenomenon, isn’t it?)
