Pin-tastic Tuesday: Coastal Cottage Chic

Three A.M in the morning and I’m awake…. again. Thank goodness I survive pretty well with little sleep but I’m starting to feel like I’m back to the days of all night baby feedings. Blame it on age and pre-menopausal symptoms I guess! I roam the dark downstairs of my home somewhere between 4-5 nights a week. What’s a girl to do in those wee hours that doesn’t involve a ton of brain activity?

I hop onto PINTEREST! (Click the link to follow along with me if you aren’t already.)

As I was pinning away pretty pictures, cool looking crafts, and recipes (that my thighs are telling me never to make) a fun thought came to me. Why not share with you and other insomniacs the awesome pins I come across in the blogosphere! So from here on out I’ll be starting Pin-tastic Tuesdays. Each week will focus on a separate topic. We all enjoy some mindless and inviting eye candy, right?

  1. I love those painted oars with the hooks…very clever!! And I’ve always LOVED that Sarah Richardson family room!! I love her style!

    Very inspiring photos Kim! Thanks for sharing!

  2. You should’ve come down for a night cap…i too was awake most of the night. I was awake because of all the hacking in my house…why is it the hackers can sleep thru it but not me. They didn’t even know they had coughed all night. Really!? LoL.

  4. Fantastic pics! I, too, have been thinking of doing something like this because I am also a Pinterest fanatic! I’ll be looking forward to whatca got for next week!

  5. I love them all! I am afraid if I get on the computer during the night I will never get back to sleep! I have to cut myself off around 11. Hope you get a better nights sleep tonight!

  6. Fabulous eye candy, Kim! I adore the seagulls cut into the shingles! Never seen that before. 🙂
    Have you ever tried Yogi Bedtime tea in the evenings? I, too, and an insomniac b/c of pre-menopausal hormones/age and it really helps me get to sleep AND fall back asleep if I wake up. Just a thought!

  8. Lovely nautical theme decorating.
