A Saturday in April...

 Long time, no see...I've been around, reading blogs via Google Reader mostly.  One of my new favorite things to do is play on Pinterest.  It's an amazing, visually stimulating, and get-your-creative-juices-flowing kind of place.  The photos on this post are all cool pics I've found on Pinterest...they're on my pinboard there, under Discard to Decor...also a new favorite thing for me lately. Seems I've been trash picking a lot lately...it's not that I want or need any furniture, but it kills me to see perfectly good "trash" waiting for the landfill.  So far, I've acquired a cute little French camelback settee, a headboard, and a side table...and a few other small items. My dining room is looking more like a furniture repair shop than a dining room.   
 I know that the Paris Flea Market Star is from the Connecting Threads catalog.  There's a free download here for the pattern.  I just love those pastels!
 This is a cool memo board.  A tutorial for this project is here at Shabby Garden Creations.
 I love this sunny little dining nook.  So springy...this one's from Flea Market Trixie.  You will love her style.

 I don't know that I'd ever paint anything this big pink, but I love this picture!  Prim and farmstyle.
Locker baskets and burlap...it just doesn't get any better.

Hi!

Have been hearing a lot of good things about Pinterest and how fun it is. Thank you for the tip on the free download. I now have it in my stash of crafty things.

I'm intrigued by the state of your dining room...
