Top 10 Favorite Pins from Pinterest

I know that Pinterest is not new at this point, but I have to admit: I still love it.  It is such a great place to find new recipes when I am getting bored with my usual meal planning, to find inspiration for designing my (future) home, or to get some great ideas for fun gifts, holiday decor, fitness, and more.  I also find that Pinterest is an excellent way to reduce clutter around my home.  All of those pages that I used to rip out of magazines or entire magazines that I have saved in piles around my house can go straight to my recycling bin since I can handily save them on Pinterest now. 

If you follow me you know that I have a LOT of ideas pinned.  And if you don't follow me, well then you should!  Regardless, of the 2,500+ pins on my pinboards I wanted to share a few standout pins with you.  They range from food to fashion to furnishings and here are 10 of my favorites.

My Top 10 Favorite Pins

1. Pink and green tablescape from Martha Stewart Weddings.  The first wedding image that I ever saved and the first point of inspiration for my wedding color scheme-- charcoal gray with pops of green and pink.


2. Chobani conversion chart.  Cooking is important to me, but the health of my family is right up there too.  I love the idea of making swaps for butter, oil, and mayo with something healthy like Greek yogurt and not some scary chemicalized low fat products.  Swapping Greek Yogurt in for mayo or sour cream in baking, chicken and potato salads, and sauces and dressings is one of my new favorite recipe tricks!


3. This amazing ensemble from Wendy's Lookbook.  She always puts some fabulous things together, but this one incorporates all of my favorites into one fun party look: bold stripes, a little leg, a sparkly clutch, and a classic topknot and pumps.  Love it!


4. Rosemary lemon sandwich cookies.  How delicious do these look/sound?  The fresh citrusy lemon flavor with that deep woodsy taste of rosemary.  Yum.  Now I just need an excuse to make them....


5. This image of a living room full of things I love.  A fabulous lamp, garden stools in my favorite shade of green, a cool ceramic pineapple (they do mean "welcome," after all), and an adorable retreiver hanging out on the floor.  If it weren't for that ugly grandma chair in the foreground I'd be ready to move right in.


6. An inspirational quote.  She believed she could so she did.  This is the kind of phrase that I aspire to live by... and I think I'm doing a pretty good job so far!


7. Butternut squash and sage flatbread.  This recipe just screams "fall" to me.  And it could not be prettier.  I want to make this for a fall get together with friends.


8. This gorgeous kitchen.  It's modern and classic, light and dark.  I am in love with that subway tile backsplash anad the contrasting colors on the island.  Dream kitchen, for sure.


9. A decadent and delicious looking pasta.  This recipe takes your comfort food up a notch by adding goat cheese, rosemary, and roasted chicken to a simple mac and cheese.  It's definitely fancy enough for entertaining and I love the idea of baking and serving it in individual crocks too.


10. And finally, who doesn't love a little sparkle (especially during the holidays)? I love a good DIY project and these pears are just so lovely.  They seem pretty cheap and simple to make too- just some dollar store fruit and glitter.  I can imagine these in big glass apothecary jars or in a bowl as a centerpiece.  Simple and elegant.
