Collages, Vision Boards and now, Pinterest

when i was a young girl i began creating collage boards. i am sure you did too. i loved cutting out my favorite things from the pages of fashion magazines. my friends and i would create our collages together or give our creation to one another as a birthday gift. we would string together descriptive words like – You’re A Fox, Foxy, Best Friends. Best Friends Forever, Go SCOTS! Go Piedmont! Sexy, Cute and the like. it was so much fun 🙂 i continued collaging into my teenage years and even into my young adult life creating boards of inspiration depicting my goals and dreams. collages are now more commonly referred to as “vision boards”.  vision boards are a great way to let your imagination run wild, to become inspired as well as to visualize and chart your goals. and, today we have Pinterest, it’s my latest addiction. i try to carve out a few moments from time to time where i can imagine, surf and pin to my hearts content. oftentimes when i am getting dressed i refer to my own Pinterest boards for a bit of fashion inspiration, like this one… it’s just so much fun!

I also love to Pin interior design, architecture, travel destinations, inspirational words and phrases and swimming pools, of course.

As the slogan goes, Happy Pinning!!


Pictured above from left to right: My daughter Bianca and I at Scala’s Bistro in San Francisco wearing, but not planned, flare legged jeans (on her), flared legged wool pants by Worth (on me), my husband’s grandfather’s camel coat (i love it), black boots, my husband’s Ray Ban Aviators and my Burberry Bag that I got on my birthday in July.

Inspiration from my Pinterst Board, Cozy, Elegant, Luxurious: Later that day I used my Nordstrom Christmas Gift Certificate to purchase my new leopard wedges and wanted to, but didn’t get that cozy Burberry hat 🙁 – (selfies are pretty awkward but i had a vision so i snapped a quick pic)

My “Cozy, Elegant, Luxurious” Pinterest Board also shows an array of faux fur pull-through scarves like the one I am wearing in black. A very nice Christmas gift from one of our Highland Partners Realtors. Thanks Kristin!!
