My Favorite Pinterest Pins for January 2013

Welcome to February everyone!  Sorry I haven't written anything about decorating for Valentine's Day.  But there is a good reason for that!  Because I really pretty much don't decorate for it!  Never have, probably never will.  I am going to try and force myself to do something Valentine's related this weekend to post for you next week though, I promise.

Oh, I wanted to show you my latest feature, if you hover over any picture on my blog with your mouse, a P will appear on the picture, and you can just click it to pin something.  Awesome sauce, right?  I got this tutorial from Jennifer at Dimples and Tangles.  She got it from another blogger, Kelly, at A Swell Place To Dwell.  You can click either of these links to see a tutorial on how you can do this yourself.  I just followed the directions and it worked!  I was so excited!

In case you don't know, I just started this blog in October.  I am so glad I did, it has been a complete joy for me.  I am trying every day to increase my following.  I did a post at the end of 2012 about My Favorite Pinterest Pins of 2012, which has turned out to be my most popular post- BY FAR!  So I got to thinking, maybe I could make this a monthly thing!  You KNOW I am obsessed with pinterest, right?  It is the best cyber invention ever!  So I am gonna give this a go with a post about my favorite pins of the month each month and see how it pans out.  Without further ado, here are some of my faves for the month of January.  The only rule is that I have to have pinned it in, wait for it, January!

Fun fact, I am in love with Young House Love, and this is their book, which I have already devoured from cover to cover, and it is full of great ideas.

This corner office area is great for a small space.  I would love to have it.

Look at this dream bathroom!  The double shower and bathtub are in one little room so no need to worry about splashing.  LOVE! 

I love tomatoes, and olives, so I want to try this olive and tomato bread, yum!

This looks like a dreamy spot.  I am a sucker for tropical locations.  I want to be here right now, instead I am sitting at my computer.  It is 14 degrees out, and we are off school today because it snowed a butt load last night.  Yay me!

Club Med- Maldives

It says this exercise is good for back pain so I pinned it, LC is constantly complaining, he needs to try this.


My hair is not this long, but I think this is a cute style, want to try it.

Oh, the things I could do to this closet! 

Love the polka dots on this pouff.

I have three bathrooms sinks a lot like this that I hate, I might give this a try on one of them.

I love this idea!  My family of 5 dirties way too many glasses!  As a matter of fact I have already used this idea, I will show you soon.

I am looking for a pretty way to embellish a plain round mirror, and I found this!  Love it!  Made from plastic spoons!

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of may favorite pins for the month of January.  I tried my best to post links back to the original source, but there were a couple that I was unable to find.  I will be back next month with my favorites for Febraury!  Have a great weekend everyone!
