I resisted joining pinterest for a long time because I figured I just didn't need yet another internet-based timesuck in my life.  However I did join a couple of months ago and have found it to be a really useful tool.  I like that I can link to specific items on a website, including with a picture - no more scrolling through dozens of bookmarks to try and remember what it was I liked on which particular website.  And I like that I can access it from wherever I am and am not restricted to just having the information available on my own computer.  I don't follow many people and I haven't spent much time browsing through it but I dearly love my "Pin It" button.

And I enjoyed this post today on Noho'ana hau'ole about another way to view and use pinterest: True Confessions: I Am a Hoarder.
...instead of shelves clogged with tchotkes needing to be dusted, or closets filled with items rarely seen or used, I have boards filled with pictures I can look at and swoon over again and again without having to deal with the clutter of actual items.
What a great way to look at it!

"Grand Tour sounds like a lot of fun..."

I should think there is a good change of us meeting.

I will let you know of my schedule, nearer the time.

A Pinterest tip: The “Pin It” button or the JavaScript bookmarklet works on both the iPhone and iPad. This means you can save content to Pinterest while browsing the web in mobile Safari.
