I love Pinterest. It is the most addicting site ever. I love pinning every pretty thing I see and keeping reminders of cool DIY projects or decorating ideas. It is seriously the best. However. Last week (during the great blogging hiatus of 2011) I pinned this super pretty pair of incredibly inexpensive earrings as a reminder to myself to go back and buy them the next day. Here they are:
So cute right? And only $12! But! After I pinned those earrings I went to bed, blissfully ignorant of what would await me in the morning. My pin went viral (Pinterest-style) and got repinned a ton. When I went back the next day to buy the earrings they were… wait for it… SOLD OUT! So learn from me, dear friends: if you want to pin something, buy it before you pin it.
PS- If you want a Pinterest invite, let me know. It is still invite-only, but it is easy to invite people. You’ll like it. Fair warning, though: super addicting.
