Things I’ve Learned from Pinterest

That old t-shirt is best used as a dusting rag. Not a scarf. Not a “cute new top.”

Pinterest Board

Apparently, I should have been wearing boot socks all this time.

Everyone does their nails (except me).

Everyone has a wedding board (except me).

Everyone wears scarves (except me).

Click-bait makes me angry. If the link doesn’t go to the store where you can buy an item, I’m not pinning it. I don’t want to aspire to own those shoes. I want to own those shoes.


People are obsessed with recipes with pumpkin and making food look like a pumpkin.

Anything can be made in a crockpot. Anything.

I will repin any recipe with the words “Salted Caramel” or “Nutella” in the title.

Cauliflower is not a suitable replacement for anything. No potatoes. Not pizza crust.

People love “copy cat” meals. I just don’t understand why people want to copy anything from Olive Garden.

Sandra Lee is just lazy.  Busy women (and men) on Pinterest make their own seasoning mixes, brownie and cake mixes, and freezer meals. 


“Take an old…” projects are almost never worth it. (Also, see old, t-shirt above)

Anything can be made into a chalkboard.


People are serious about dog breeds. Don’t you dare say that English Cream Dachshund is a Golden Retriever and Dachshund mix!  One woman’s quest (she’s commented on pins of same dog several times).

The only thing better than a photo of a sleeping puppy is a photo of many sleeping puppies.

And, finally, that this is possible.
