Another reason I love Pinterest is because it has been one more way to connect me with people I love. I learned my sister Rebecca, my darling niece Amanda, and my Mom's cousins are all on Pinterest. I have a way to connect every day with their ideas, and things that make them happy. As I peruse through Pinterest I will often come accross something that will remind me of people close to me, especially family.
I have a memory growing up, of folded down catalogue pages in magazines my Mom collected. She would go through them often at night. It was her Pinterest. This post I am dedicating to Pinterest finds that remind me of home and family (particularly my Mom, Sister, Aunts, and Grandma Harrington).
Blue and White.....prerequisite to love if a "true" Harrington.....
Checks and Gingham in all sizes shapes and colors......
In fact I am pretty sure my Mom has these.
My Grandma Harrington was a home economics teacher for 30 plus years. She made gorgeous and delicious treats.
Flowers are a big part of my genetic make up. Love THEM. My first project I remember in Elementary school was keeping a flower journal.
Peonies are among the most FAVORITE!
Pink, Hot Pink, and more HOT PINK. I saw these in the window of the Kate Spade store in Newport Fashion Island shortly after my Mom passed away. After my return to Pennsylvania I kept hearing my Mom's voice in my head......"Just buy the hot pink Kate Spade shoes....you will love them." I bought them and love them. Every time I wear them I think....."goodness my Mom would love these.!":)
White lace, and peter pan collar. Yes.....would be a favorite.
An English garden.....
and let us not forget some red plaid chairs.
I love being reminded of wonderful people in my life.
LOVE TO MY FAMILY!!!
