pins and things

I'm in that strange, post-book sort of mood right now. You know the one I'm talking about?

You've been so caught up in your book reading it for hours at a time, excitedly watching the action build up, anticipating the big ending, speeding through chapters that by the time you reach the last page, you almost feel breathless. You've been so absorbed in the characters and their fictional world, it feels absurd to leave them . . . That's how I feel right now. And I wouldn't be surprised if tonight I dreamt I went to Manderley. ;)

I'm also itching to start my next book, but I'm in an odd situation. Before I left school, I was reading The Secret History by Donna Tartt. I got about 100 pages in and was really enjoying it, but I was reading a library book and I had to return it before coming home. And to my great dismay, I was the 6th person to request it at my local library. So I had to turn to other things (like The Seance and Rebecca). 

That was about a month ago. I've read two books since, and I'm still not #1 on the holds list :( By the time I get it, I'll probably have forgotten everything I read! And yes, I thought about buying it, but I'm cheap and don't want to risk buying a bad book. Just gotta have patience!

Anyway, I haven't done a non-literary post in a while, so I thought I'd share some of my favorite Pinterest pins with you. Enjoy!

 I'm not in the market for a new swimsuit right now, but if I was, I'd be eyeing this one.

This avocado basil pasta looks awesome. Avocado + cheese + bacon = Yum.
It looks a little stiff (I would toss in a blanket or pillow), but I love the elegant lines and practicality of this dog bed.

If my birthday was coming up or Christmas wasn't 197 days away (I might have a countdown on my laptop dashboard . . .), this scratch-away map would definitely be on my list.

Just some beautiful flowers. I wish flowers weren't so expensive and we could all have bouquets of them in our houses and offices and schools all the time. It'd certainly be good for morale.

This is an attic! Amazing, right? It's a perfect guest room or it could be fun as a pretend vacation spot in your own house :)

 I'm dying to go to New York someday soon. During the holidays would be just perfect. I'm definitely a cold-weather sort of girl.

If I ever have kids, I'd love to send them little notes from the tooth fairy :)
