A few favourites from my Pinterest boards

Today, I am sharing a few favourite images from my Pinterest boards. I could – and have! – spent hours just looking at pictures on Pinterest. It appears that I’m in good company: 11 million visits to Pinterest are made every week. (Only about 1 million of those are mine, by the way.)

Pinterest’s mission is to “connect everyone in the world through the ‘things’ they find interesting.” It is one of the fastest growing social services in the world.

I read on Wikipedia that in the U.S., 83% of users are women, but that in the U.K., 56% of users are male.

If you have a Pinterest account, please leave me a comment with your account name and I will follow you!


There’s something about tea and books
that just seem to perfectly complement one another.


I especially like the mix of teacups and mugs.


Who loves Downton Abbey? I do! I do!


Teacups suspended from the ceiling at Cassandra’s Cup tearoom in Hampshire.
Want to do this in my kitchen.


Isn’t this just beautiful?! I think currants are such an elegrant garnish.


I am a card-carrying Anglophile.


What would it feel like to come home to something like this every day, huh?

Delightful illustration. Shame that the cake is so large. NOT!!
