Oh How "Pinteresting"


My name is Megan, and I am a Pinterest Addict.


But it's true! How easy it is to wile away the hours searching for that next bit of inspiration.

Pinterest has become an important commodity for me, when looking for ideas that are historically correct, or trying to remember that recipe I saw the other day.

I'd like to start a weekly series on some of the things I've pinned. Starting today!

Here are a few things I've pinned this week!

A trio of pink!
Top is a silk taffeta dress from 1915- 1917
Middle is a sumptuous Edwardian tea gown from around 1900
Bottom is a young girl's dress from 1904


Next up a bit of vintage,
 Top is an adorable Sailor Dress by  Norman Norell from 1954 (I'm a sucker for the sailor style)
Next is a side button 1940's dress from Etsy.
And lastly a vintage (style?) Embroidery pattern.
A bit of SCA life, this is (until this  past weekend.) The queen of Meridies, My Kingdom. I was tickled to see a picture of Queen Amber pop up on my dashboard. Not to mention the gorgeous detail on her Viking outfit.
Lastly, 14th century falconry, which I'm fascinated by. I like to take not of things like the belled sleeves on her surcote, and the train on her cotehardie. Rather fancy to be holding a dead duck, eh?
So there's a beginning of "My life on Pinterest"
What do you like to pin?
PS! there are only a few days left to enter the Giveaway! Please hurry and don't miss this opportunity!!
Disclaimer; I do not own any of these photos, they are simply something that I saw on pinterest. If you do not want me displaying them, please simply ask and I will take it down immediately. Also, I have linked back to my pin, if the link is broken, and you know where it belongs, I will fix it.


  1. I remember growing addicted to Pinterest, but there was no noble or productive motive behind the obsession. Now, I rarely look at Pinterest. I'll have to pay more attention from now on.

    1. I think it all has to do with who you follow. I've had to search out boards with the right theme. For example, when I joined the SCA I searched out boards for SCA, Pennsic (A really big SCA Event), 14th Century, ECT. and then it was a "FOLLOW ALL THE THINGS" Spree. :D

  2. The nautical looking girl's dress!! I WANT!! It's so cool. I pin all the time and then my fingers feel a bit crampy and numb. You could say I'm developing Pinterest calluses. XP

    1. I know! I love Sailor anything! So cute. And I know the feeling! I think I have over 6000 pins in total right now. and the number goes up every day. lol!
