If you have an apple and I have an apple
and we exchange these apples then you
and I will still each have one apple.  But
if you have an idea and I have an idea and
we exchange these ideas, then each of us
will have two ideas. 

~George Bernard Shaw

I think Pinterest is one of
the best ideas ever and I
have been enjoying pinning
all sorts of things.

Inspiration comes from all
directions  and lately I have
been trying my hand at this.

Next on my list is to try and
make one of these since a
$587.50 price tag is way out
of my price range.

What is inspiring you these days?


  1. I am going to have to cruise pinterest for some of those ideas! I like the idea of knitted jewelry - how could I not, right? The leather knitting "bag" is gorgeous! WOW!

  2. That is one gorgeous bag! I pinned it because I liked it, but it is a bit too much for me right now :) mari

  3. I love the leather knitting basket! Gorgeous!

  4. Wow, that is a stunning bag.

  5. I need to spend more time there, I go in spurts. I am inspired by nature and the world around me. Good luck crafting that bag, if anyone can you can!!

  6. i saw one of those knitting bags in an old Country Home magazine YEARS ago...and I've carried the picture of it ever since....dreaming of finding an old one someday. A girl can dream!!!! (we're in Williamsburg!!!!)

  7. I bet you'll find a way to make that bag, Tracey. And the bracelet...a little softer, maybe, that metal knitting needles? :) Yep, Pinterest is a treasure trove, but I just can't spend too much time there. With our electrical business, I try to keep away from the laptop as much as I can... Blessings, ~Lisa :)

  8. Very cool! I have been on Pinterest lately to get ideas for my tattoo - I want to add something to my ball of yarn. I find I can spend hours on there....

  9. That's quite the purse! Lovely! If you figure out how to make one for under $100 let me know... I'll buy one from you! LOL!

  10. Lovely knitted bracelet.
    Pinterest is a very inspiring place ;-)

  11. Wow what amazing things Tracey. How ambitious of you to try the knitted bag...but I'm sure if of anyone that you can do it. I've loved looking at all your pintrest images since you put up the link on your page. I sneak over quite often for a nosey. I love all the knitted things and the lovely grey haired ladies. I'm dying to start one too, hopefully before too long.

  12. that knitting bag is amazing! i cant wait to see how yours comes out!

  13. oh my! in love with the leather knitting bag! how exciting! i agree about pinterest... it's a huge source of inspiration for me! i am inspired to learn to build with wood this summer. i pinned plans for a sandbox and a kids picnic table and i asked my husband to help me. i'm hoping that this project will lead to more :) i am also inspired to paint old furniture.

  14. That leather knitting bag is so cool - would be out of my price range too, however. I love your quote from George Bernard Shaw.

  15. Pinterest got me this morning. I bought a bracelet I can't afford, but it matches my yarn! Look at your shiny yarn!!! Love it.

  16. That is one hefty price tag. Can't wait to see your results. I love Pinterest. Recipes are a big inspiration to try something new. But fashion is a big one for me.
