Over on the official Pinterest
blog they do a feature every once in a while where they ask a 'pinner' to explain why they pinned the last 5 images on their pinterest boards. Well, I'm not hanging around till they get to me so here goes!
I pinned this this morning from Tricia Foley's In the Country
. I am strangely drawn to simple pots, balls of natural string and all things that point to a pared down, minimal life. The only explanation I can give for this is that after moving house so many times I often have to assess my 'goods and chattels' and edit them down. I can not hoard.
I pinned this today from Every Eskimo's
blog. Ballet was my first love. Dance was such a big part of my childhood and early adulthood. I particularly like the girl on the far right. She looks like she is lost in the music (although, I imagine her teacher will shortly be correcting her for her floppy hands). The girl in front, on the other hand, is just as beautiful with her technical precision and concentration.
This one is self explanatory for long time readers of this blog. All things pebbely are a constant source of inspiration round these parts.
I pinned this rather haunting portrait today after using it as the inspiration for an Etsy Treasury
I made yesterday.
And finally this rather lovely texture by Ninian Lif
on flickr. I may incorporate this into a sketchbook background at some stage.

. I must say, it is an excellent way to prevaricate just before a tricky solder joint!
