Pins that Win

I know I’m not the only one who could regain many hours in her life if she put down the iPad and walked away from Pinterest. However, I do love Pinterest, and have found amazing design inspiration and recipes, along with tips and tricks that I have put to use in my own life. I mean, that’s the whole purpose of Pinterest, right?

So, I thought it would be fun to share some of the pins that I have found to be “winners” in my book, firsthand.
Aging Terracotta Pots

I’m sure some of you have seen this floating around the blogosphere.  Great tutorial, and I picked up some cheap pots at a garage sale to give this a try.  The result?  Pretty pots!

This one falls under one of those “Duh” moments for me.  Adding corkboard to the inside of a kitchen cabinet – brilliant!  I added this to one of my kitchen cabinets and pin coupons, the kids’ school lunch menu, you name it.  Great idea!

Caprese Mozzarella Tomato Basil Panini
I have had this sandwich more times than I care to mention, but how is a girl supposed to resist when you have fresh tomatoes and basil in da houzz?  It’s so good!  Unfortunately, I just discovered that the link doesn’t work anymore!  But, it’s really easy to make. 

Take some good crusty bread and spread pesto on one side.  Layer fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and minced fresh basil.  Coat the outside portions of bread with olive oil and grill until golden brown and cheese is melted.  Enjoy!

A Good Neutral Lipstick

After pinning this, I picked up a tube of this Wet n Wild lip color since it’s uber cheap (1.99), and what girl doesn’t need a good neutral in her makeup arsenal?  Although, admittedly, I don’t think I’ve bought Wet n Wild since I was in, um, 8th grade maybe?

But, I can report, it’s a good color at a great price – definitely a winning pin.

So, have you found any winning pins?  Do tell!
