Pinnably delicious

Hi folks!  Sorry I dropped the ball on this week's Monday Music Break - I've been dealing with a bad fibro flare for several days and haven't had much energy.  I've got a bit of an energy boost right now, so I wanted to share with you some of the fun things I've been pinning lately:

dancing tree
This tree that looks like a dancer.  I'm not sure if it's photoshopped or not, but it's such a powerful, graceful image I don't much care if it is. 

This DIY heart blanket from A Beautiful Mess.  I love crafty things, though I am frequently daunted by projects with a complicated process.  This project is simple and easily customizable (you could easily change the stamp color and shape).

Smitten Kitchen's recipe for broccoli rabe with pasta and parmesan.  I post a lot of recipes that inspire me, but this is one I actually really want to try.  Someone I used to be close to makes this all the time, and it is scrumptious.  Broccoli rabe is a bit of an acquired taste, as it is rather bitter.  How you prepare the broccoli rabe will make it more or less bitter (like how long you blanch it).  Me, I prefer it nice and bitter.  Om nom nom.
corgi and ducklings
Grammar Dalek and baby Dalek!  That's all you need to know, because Joel Watson is a geeky genius.  (Yes, Doctor Who is my favorite show and I do have a mild obsession with it, why do you ask?)

I'm also a bit obsessed with corgis lately.  And ducks.  So when I ran across a corgi leading baby ducklings around in the water, I just about died.

I sure use the tag "I'm a big dork and that's ok" a lot, don't I?  But I'm a big dork, and I know it, so it's okay.

Your turn!  What are some of the fun things you've been pinning lately?


  1. I love the dancing trip pic! I'll admit it. I have a Pinterest account but haven't really gotten into it like most have. I think it's more I haven't found time to do it. ;) YES! Shame on me. Hope you get feeling better hon. :)

    1. It really is a great photo, I was lucky enough to find it when someone else pinned it.

      I've found that one of the easiest ways to use Pinterest is with the Pin It button that you can install on your browser's toolbar. It makes pinning so much easier!

  2. Oh oh oh, I lovvvvvvvvvvee Doctor Whe too! I met David Tennant and it was AMAZING!

    1. I'm so jealous that you got to meet him!

  3. oh my gosh that picture is so cute!! i love corgis and want one sooo bad


    1. Corgi's really are so damn cute, aren't they? I've been dropping not-so-subtle hints to my boyfriend that we should move to a rental that allows pets and then get a corgi :)
