Today, another post by Guest Blogger (and daughter extraordinaire), Samantha.
I have many different boards or categories on Pinterest, but there is one real distinction between my "pins" (photos). There are the realistic pins of things I want or want to do...things that I might actually get to some day.... and then there are things like this:
A flower chandelier? Are you joking? OF COURSE I want this. Will I ever ever make it? OF COURSE NOT. But, it's fun to dream all the same. I can't help but smiling when I think of myself climbing to change the water for each little test tube flower everyday... alright, that doesn't make me smile as much as cringe, but I smile when I think of seeing that in my home every day.
Or how about this?
Teacup lights. It's really cute, but I don't know that I would ever actually make it. What I really need is a Fairy CraftMother to make all of these things for me! And besides, I don't think I could part with such beautiful teacups to hang them from the ceiling (then again- it would be a great excuse for a trip to the flea market.) Speaking of ceilings...
Wallpaper on the ceiling! Who comes up with this stuff? Who thinks that ANYONE in their right mind would try to wallpaper a ceiling? I have witnessed people trying to put up wallpaper vertically on walls, and it did not look fun. (These people were my parents. It was a very stressful time in our house). I have no idea how you would even attempt it horizontally and UPSIDE DOWN. Again, a Fairy CraftMother or other professional would come in handy.
But, who doesn't love to dream? I pin these things because maybe when I am a billionaire, I can pay to have someone to change the water in my test tube chandelier and wallpaper my ceiling. But until then, back to Pinterest I go... for more "eye candy" and dreaming.....
