Hi everyone tis a wet and dank day in leicestershire but am ignoring it as I am toasty warm inside doing a bit of painting and online screen shopping.
It was whilst I was shopping that I wondered if all of you had heard of Pinterest it is really great, especially for me who has zilch short term memory lol.
Here is the link for their FB page as you need an invite to join or you can message me and I will gladly oblige...
Now What is PINTEREST???????
Basically it's a social pinboard...You can have as many pinboards as you wish, follow as many people as you wish and pin and repin as often as you wish...what are you pinning and repinning??/ PHOTOGRAPHS
I use it to visually save anything I see that I like and pin it to the relevant board I have made ..it is all so very simple, whether it be a dress...room setting....poster...shoes...recipes..or you can make a pinboard for each of the people you have to buy presents for and as you see ideas pin them on their board and you have them for later reference...I think its brillant.
You can pin absolutely any photo you see online and it will always give you the original source of the photo even if you repin it off someone elses board.
I hope I am explaining this properly...though I guess not but do give it a try ...I love it...
Do let me know how you get on...''HAPPY PINNING''

I had some free sample size pieces of fabric from various companies so had a sort through and after a sand and paint job recovered it also added some braiding and am really pleased with the result
Then onto a coffee table I won on Ebay for £4.99.
I sanded it, undercoated it, topcoated it in a bluey grey and then added a wash of dark grey which I wiped most off but it stayed in the grooves of the design.
Looking at it now personally I think it is too blue so will go over it in a pale grey and again a wash of a darker grey.
