Favorite "PINS" this week

If I can stick to it......I thought it would be fun to start a series (I have not stuck to one yet) on favorite Pinsterest Pins of the week.
This is a slam dunk for me as I am an addict, pinning away if I have an idle moment or need to reduce stress. Looking at beautiful images takes me away and stokes the fires of inspiration.
So let's go!

We have tried this before; the client had a kitchen window that faces onto her neighbors trash, boat, toys...and this is about as much space as we had. With strategically placed cross boards and a lovely vine, it solved a problem

                                                     How fresh is this? Maybe white and tartan for winter?

With three bathrooms to re-do I am collecting ideas. Love everything here, now to find that sink...
Shakespeare. Wise words.
