Pin Whim of the Week

Good morning, dear friends.  Happy Hump Day.  It is a grey, cold day here and I am headed back to see my buddy Caitlin at the torture chamber work out club.  This time I swear I'm going to walk out of there without assistance.

A few years ago, when Pinterest came on the scene,  I became addicted to the site.  To me, it was the best invention since Nutella.  Lately, I realized I have not been on it as much and I missed it.  When I got back into the swing of things, I realized how much I was missing.  So, I decided to do a series on my favorite pins of the week.   

Nordic Home Interiors

For someone who doesn't cook very much, I sure like stoves a lot.  This one is a beauty!


This picture makes me smile.

A casa di Ro

Looks like the makings of a perfect dinner party.

I don't think I could ever make these, but they sure are cute!

Kleinworth & Co.

Buttah and garlic - need I say more?

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.


  1. I saw those sneakers yesterday on instagram and now I need them!!

  2. Good for you to keep up the work-outs! I'm eating bacon right now while I read your post. Hmmm. No inspiration yet, but I'll cheer you on.
    Love the stove, and all the other pretty things.

  3. You are back at the gym! Now I feel compelled to return to the challenging "no experience required" new class I took last week.
    Good news: The trainer from Biggest Loser lambasted Yolanda's Master Cleanse diet. Now we definitely can't launch 2015 with lemons and cayenne.

    1. Yes! I love that trainer. I was just about to go out and buy the lemons. bummer

  4. I think it is very important that you have a beautiful stove for your hubby to cook on :)

  5. GREAT pins. Love that stove and that wrapping solution with the old stool is perfect! xo Diana

  6. Great Pins. Love the tennis shoes. I am hoping the girl that does my monogramming gets the small hoop she wants so she can do our Converse! Love the quote about dogs. So true.

  7. That stove is beautiful, looks like the ovens may operate similar to my AGA. Sweet quote about our pups!

  8. You had me at the STOVE,,,,,Ruth

  9. I want the converse...monogrammed of course...too cute. The wedding dress is beautiful...wish my body would fit in it.

  10. Whatever did we do before Pinterest? Love your pins today and think I'll go over and browse Pinterest a while myself. Happy rest of the week!

  11. That gift wrapping thing is SO clever! :) (and a gorgeous wedding dress; I agree!)

  12. I am addicted to Pinterest!!! My pins are a huge source of inspiration for me & make me so happy! It makes DH happy also because I don't need to tear inspirational pages out of magazines & leave them around the house anymore : ). Hope all is well my friend; stay warm! Will write. Xoxox, Dawn

  13. Katie,I just know if you and I lived close together,we would be BFF's!! We love all the same things!! That wedding dress is the most fabulous,ever! My pins are growing everyday,and I spend way too much time on pinterest.Also,I don't cook,either,but love beautiful stoves and kitchens.Hope you have a warm and toasty weekend....hugs,Elaine

    1. Elaine... move to Mass! We could have so much fun together!

  14. I haven't spent much time on Pinterest lately...these gorgeous pics remind me I need to go back and play there some more...never enough time! xoxo

  15. The same is true for me. When I first discovered Pinterest I could while away an hour and not even realize it! Not so much anymore but I still love to drop in every now and then for some inspiration. Gotta go - my trainer awaits! Good luck at the gym...

  16. I have repinned many of these lovely things after seeing them on your Pinterest boards. Between finding great videos and fabulous pins to share with us, how on earth do you find the time for Caitlin?!?!?! ;-)

  17. Oh! I absolutely love the wedding dress! Could you please tell me which designer is it?! I am planning my wedding for next year, and it looks gorgeous!

    1. Hi! I love it too! I got it off Pinterest and I think it's from here https://www.nearlynewlywed.com/
