Pinteresting, Vol. 7

Happy Friday and Happy Halloween and welcome to Pinteresting! The part of the show where I roundup my favorite pins from this week and share them with the world. I pin recipes, decorating ideas, religious stuff, teaching thoughts, funny stuff from Tumblr, kids' activities, crafting ideas, knitting/crochet patterns, and cute cat pictures.

Wow, guys, I kinda fell off the wagon the last couple weeks. Dunno where my blogging hat went but I was definitely wearing a lot of babysitter and worker bee hats the last couple weeks. Putting the Blogger hat back on. Pinteresting list time!


So I've become slightly obsessed with finding the perfect recipe for starting a round of Amish Friendship Bread. It is the most delicious thing in the world. It's definitely not low-calorie in any way but boy is it tasty. The only trouble is, eventually your friends, family, and neighbors will start to dread seeing you with plastic bags in hand, knowing you'll be baking every 10 days. But word on the internet is that you can freeze the starter....


Theresa at Ordinary Lovely used this pattern to make these place card holders for her annual Fall Soup Party. (Sorry for the heavy linking, but I want to make sure you go see her because her little pumpkins were so stinking cute!) Basically, the pattern is for these little stuffed pumpkins and Theresa did them in a bunch of fun fall colors in addition to traditional orange. I quite like them and plan to make a few to keep with my autumn decorations for October/November. Maybe even add a few to my Thanksgiving centerpiece or something. Or just make them as toys/fun things for the children and cats in my life. So cute!


I saw this on the internet earlier this week and pinned it after I checked out NASA's website. I've always been fascinated by space exploration (fascinated and absolutely terrified) so this graphic is right up my alley. To think that we may put human beings on Mars in 20 years' time! I'm very excited to see what the future holds in this area.


I love subversive, sassy cross-stitch. It's taking something saccharine and giving it an entirely new spin. I've seen dozens of others (started stitching a few, as well!) from "Be Nice or Leave" to "Suck it up, Buttercup" to some that are far too inappropriate to be displayed in my home. The ones like this, however, are just funny and slightly unexpected.


I've used this rhyme several times in teaching friends of mine (in their early 20s) to knit. My niece has begun asking me to teach her and I think she may just be about ready - she's just turned 6. I know my parents will be entertaining her and her big brother (just turned 9) for part of their Christmas break, so perhaps Ill take advantage of that and we'll make a project of it.


This dapper kitty is definitely ready for the holidays. Gatsby has this hat, too, but he won't hold still while I take pictures of him wearing it, the brat.

That's it for this week's edition of Pinteresting! I always enjoy curating my favorite, most recent pins. If you're not currently on Pinterest, make sure you take a moment to say goodbye to your loved ones before you log on, because there's no going back! You can follow me on Pinterest (any or all of my boards, find your cup of tea) HERE. Happy weekend!
