10 Things I’ve Learned From My Obsession With Pinterest

1.  There’s no decorating dilemma that a mason jar, a wooden pallet and some burlap can’t fix.

2.  Nutella is the new superfood.

3.  Crock-pots have given a whole new meaning to the term “slow food.”

4.  Who knew so many women were smitten with Ben Affleck?  He’s been repinned 70 times from my board alone, last time I checked, and the fan club is growing daily!

5.  What doesn’t kill you will at least inspire a nifty quote.

"Better Things" from The Love Shop

6.  Did you know you can freeze avocadoes?

Pureed, frozen avocadoes can last up to a year, reportedly.
Or better yet, make them into chocolate pudding or a luscious frozen dessert!

7.  Forget about diamonds.  Nail polish is a girl’s best friend.  How chic is this?
8.  Even hardcore businesspeople can’t deny the universal marketing appeal of a cute puppy and kitten montage.  Everybody has one!


9.  There are hundreds of recipes for crack! Or “nom-noms” inspired by the addictive quality of crack.  Most of them involve cream cheese, bacon, chocolate chips,  marshmallows, or all four.    Most of them can also probably be traced back (within 6 degrees of separation) to this Butter Maven’s website!

10.  There’s only one man in the world who totally understands and forgives your Pinterest addiction.  Hey, Girl…it’s Ryan Gosling.  Get to know him.

Say Whaaaaaat?
