The Magic of Pinterest

I'm wondering how many of you have joined Pinterest.  Frankly I knew nothing about it even when a friend asked me a year or so ago if I'd heard of it.  Under protest decided to join to see what all the hullabaloo was about.

Okay, so I could check out rug hooking, and then define it to 'antique' rugs.  Oh my but what a wonderful access to rugs others have seen and not me.  There is a very friendly search engine which will connect you to 'Snowmen', jewelry, etc.  Well guess you more informed young'uns knew about this venue way before me.

What I'm alluding to is that I have had an outdated picture of particular snippet bags on my web site since like 2006.  They were sold long ago and decided to not do the Velcro detachment any longer.  This lovely lady Ann saw a picture of those on Pinterest (NOT my web site), my name was attached (thank you who ever provided my name as the source) and Ann contacted me. 

Ann inquired about a particular design, I told her I'd make one similar but not sure the exact wool was still here.  Wanting to give her a choice I made two and gave her a choice with no obligation to buy either.  She decided to purchase both.
Interesting that I pay for a web site but she saw these on Pinterest.  So I say take pictures of my things but please do give me ( and ALL OF US) credit in your pictures.  Again, thank you to the person who provided advertisement for me.



  1. Pinterest is definitely addictive! You wouldn't happen to sell the covers for the frames to protect your arms would you? My frame is octagon or do you know who does .

  2. I only went to Pinterest once and was confused and now am afraid to go back because I hear it is so addicting.
    Hugs :)

  3. I love Pinterest. And yes you can spend hours looking and looking and looking.

    Glad to hear it worked out for you.

  4. I love it, but don't use it much, I would have no life if I went there very often. It is wonderful, but like a certain brand of chips, I can not stop at one!

  5. I love Pinterest but try not to go there too often. A major time grabber, but also a lively way to escape. How nice that this lady was honest and bought from you in lieu of copying.


Thanks for taking the time to visit and I always welcome comments.
