Real Life Pinterest

What's this I see? You can actually pin pictures to a board, like pinterest but with real life pins? Madness!

I am joking, I promise, I do still remember what a pinboard is, but it was a lovely surprise when a few weeks ago Aussie sent all their angels a pinboard to get us all thinking about creating an Aussie themed pinterest board. I never quite managed to enter my pinterest board in time for the Aussie competition but I've had a lot of fun cutting pages out of magazines for a real life inspiration board.

I love the idea of creating a pinboard each season, and refreshing it with new images. Currently as you can see I am in love with Aubin and Wills tees, everything at the Wish magazine launch party and basically everything about Kate Bosworth. I've never really been a fan of hers before, but recently I have definitely changed my mind!

Pinboards, actual pinboards - just so much nicer, like a handwritten letter or a photograph to hold in your hand :)

I love old fashioned cutting out images and making inspiration collages. I like the tactility that you just can't get from a computer screen, and also the fact that you can have it up on your wall to see all the time, and to see the whole board at once, which of course isn't possible on pinterest. Having said that I use pinterest too, but why not both?

I still love 'real' pinboards, though for me it's more scrap books - there's just something nice and creative about cutting and glueing in... xoxo

Creating a real life pin board seems like a fab idea! I have my Aussie one too, so am thinking of doing something similar.

well it takes longer but it's much easier to see if it's always there

I love this idea :) Pinterest is so fun, but I love your idea of doing a seasonal live version. It's perfect for visual people <3

A real life pin board is a nice alternative to an online one for sure! I like how you can swap and change it around each month/season xxx
