Sunday Post

IMG_1259We decorated the tree last week. Our younger daughter came over and helped and then we watched National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and had dinner. I used Instagram to take the picture. I think I have a lot to learn about that app.

Blog news:

I decided to try a new blog theme. Someone pointed out that she had to search for the place to comment so let me point to the little “comment balloon” to the right of the post title. Just click on it and talk to me πŸ™‚

I noticed that Jill (from Breaking the Spine) started posting about the Pinterest recipes she’s actually made. I say actually because I’ve pinned countless recipes but have only tried, well, two now! One was this simple appetizer and the other was this entrΓ©e. Hubby gave it a thumbs up so I’ll make it again. I thought it was delicious – quick and easy too! I want to thank Jill for the inspiration to try some of the recipes I’ve pinned. I’ll blog about the keepers here on the Sunday Post.

So, what about you? Do you like Pinterest? Do you pin recipes and then actually try them?

  1. Your tree looks beautiful! I pin a lot of stuff at Pinterest and I have made some of them, but I pin more than I make. It’s just a nice way to “window shop!”


  2. Your tree is beautiful. We going to get our tree this week and I’m really looking forward to the decorating. Also, now I want to watch Christmas Vacation. Love that movie. πŸ™‚


  3. Your tree is gorgeous! Still have not tried pinterest. Probably won’t either as I am trying to cut down on computer time.


  4. Pretty tree, Mary!

    As for Pinterest, I have to say I love it. Though I don’t go there every day and am not a heavy “pinner”, I actually get writing ideas from the images I collect.


    • Thanks, Beth. I love looking at the house furnishings and style boards on Pinterest. I usually see recipes from ones my friends have pinned – and then I’m hooked πŸ™‚


  5. Your tree looks lovely. I particularly like the red ribbon around it.
    And I love your new blog look. I love changing mine up. This was a good choice. Nice and clean and simple but some neat typography.


    • Thank you, Jenners – I was going for a clean look but the type was a bonus. Also, I credit my daughter for the red ribbon – her idea πŸ™‚
