March Pinspiration

Have you ever noticed that the things you are drawn to aren't necessarily the things that you like? Something tells us that an object we see is appealing, even if we know it doesn't suit us. Like when you have a closet full of your least favorite color, or recipe books for foods you don't crave. Are these items calling to us for a different reason? Perhaps all those orange garments aren't meant for your closet, but for your walls.

Sometimes this can happen to us when we're bead shopping, too. We go bananas for a new shape or color or cut, and snap them up before considering if they'll ever have a home in our designs. Sometimes, it's better just to look! With that in mind, here are just a few of the lovely things that have caught my eye on Pinterest this month.

Do you have a weakness for something that is out of your 'element'?

  1. You're right Mortira, those things are gorgeous for the most part, whether color, style, or just that they "appeal". But there are very few things I would actually "want". Now that house with the tree in the middle of the room, I could live there!! :) But all those rings in the reptiles? no way!!

  2. Wow, you've managed to tap right into my style with all of these. I love cool colours, shiny, sparkly iridescent things, and I would totally wear that octopus ring. I get what you mean about the orange clothes though, I've had a thing for orange of late, even though I know that it wouldn't suit my colouring at all :D

    As for the beads, I've had that happen too. I've found the best way to deal with them is to follow your advice about the orange clothes, and make pretty wall hangings and window dangles out of them.
