Have You Discovered Pinterest Yet?

If you haven’t discovered Pinterest yet, you need to … today!

What is Pinterest? Well, words really don’t seem to capture how clever and engaging this image-driven platform really is, but let me give it a try. Basically, Pinterest is a social bookmarking site which enables users to “pin” images of anything that interests them on a variety of “boards” that categorize the pins.

Doesn’t sound special, you say? Well, to really “get” the power and attraction of what has become THE hottest site in the social media world, you have to try it out.

Pinterest is a fabulous way to discover new designs, trends and products rather than relying on searches on Google, which seem to present you with nothing but the same old, same old – big box stores, well known brands, and generic “stuff.”

There’s a reason why sites like Etsy and the fast growing list of curated shopping sites such as Ones Kings Lane or Haute Look  are so popular now. They bring you fresh ideas, designs, products, and trends that the generic results on Google will never bring you.

Pinterest takes this to a whole new level. Pinterest is populated with all the great finds that members around the world have discovered and loved … and pinned. Each pin can lead you to additional related pins. You can follow a user, or just one of their pins or boards. You can create an account and create your own boards. Install the “Pin” button on your browser bookmark bar and you can pin any web page or image you find on the web … or upload images directly.

As you can probably tell, we’re big fans of Pinterest. We’re experimenting with sharing our work on Pinterest in a new way and also sharing other things we love and are inspired by. You’ll see a “Pin it” button at the top of each of our blog posts and a “Follow me on Pinterest” button in our sidebar or below.

Home Sweet Home

“Home is where one starts from.”   – T.S. Eliot

So simple, but so true, isn’t it? Lynn and I sure think so. That’s why we’re proud supporters of Habitat For Humanity, the wonderful organization that helps so many people get their start with a home of their own.

This year Lynn and I wanted to step it up a notch and do a bit more than usual. So, we’ve created a special sterling silver Chinese Symbol “Home” charm with 30% of every sale donated to Habitat For Humanity.  This elegant charm is a wonderful gift with meaning.

We’re also donating 49 of these little beauties, plus one specially blinged-out pendant-size version in palladium, to our local Detroit Habitat’s 25th Anniversary Gala this month. Fifty of the attendees will make a donation for one of 50 special boxes – 49 of which will hold a “Home” Charm and one of which will hold the diamond-rimmed pendant. A no-lose proposition.

If you’d like to support Habitat For Humanity you can do so with donations of money or time via their website:  Habitat.org
