Practical pinning?

I pinned this recently. If you're not pinning, then you're missing out on a great way of saving ideas in one central place. If you are, then you'll know that you'll probably never, in two lifetimes, have enough hours in the day to enact everything you've pinned. That's certainly the case with my Boards.

When I'm old and grey and living alone (assuming I outlive my spouse and not the other way!), this will be my living quarters.

Soft, white, feminine, and just enough space for me.

I'm not sure how I'll get up to my loft bedroom, but I've seen those staircase lifts and think I'll install one of those.

I'm a bit worried about the chandelier hanging directly over my belly button, and I don't like the consequences of swinging my legs out of bed one morning and feeling for the floor that isn't there, and I'll probably trip over the chair cover or tablecloth and break my silly elderly neck...but then who said this was a practical option.

Isn't it funny?

I love the look of this, but when you get right down to it, it's surely not a space in which anyone actually lives.

Do you ever pin something onto Pinterest, or save something you've seen without really looking at it properly? I think a lot of my Pins are probably totally impractical.

One of the recent craft ideas I tried, was melting cheapo plastic beads in a pie dish, leaving a little hole through which to thread some ribbon.

Well it worked, but the ensuing fumes just about choked us all and made the whole family a bit nauseous. The beads also stuck to my good pie dish, and I've wrecked the thing trying to get my bead 'suncatcher' out of it's mold. I posted a warning on that one.

A lot of the Pins on Pinterst catch my eye because they're a certain colour, style or font. When I actually look at their content, they're not really for me after all.

Ahhh...the limitations of Pinning. Are your Pins practical?
