This post may contain affiliate links.
Here’s a riddle for you:
Who is blonde, loves design, and uses lots of exclamation points?
If you answered me, well, you’d be right. ūüôā But today I’m actually talking about the lovely Ashley from A {Blonde’s} DIY Life!¬†I’ve been reading this lovely gal’s blog for a while now, and she is a class act. I tell ya, the things she creates are just absolutely gorgeous. Because we have such similar tastes and I love everything she pins, I asked her to be my Budget Buddy today and dish about Pinterest. Although most of you have learned of the joy¬†addiction that is this website, for those of you who don’t, here is a little bit about it plus some gorgeous inspiration pictures that Ash rounded up.
Oh, and if you haven’t joined Pinterest and would like to, I have three e-mail invites to give out to you today. So, if you want one, please leave a comment with your e-mail address and the first three people will get one!!
Okay, so without further ado, here’s Ashley:
Hey all!
Ashley here from A {Blonde’s} DIY Life!
 I was super excited to get an invite from Cat the other day to write a guest post here on Budget Blonde!  I fell in love with her blog as soon as I found it, I mean how could I not!?!   How could
¬†A { Blonde’s } DIY Life¬† and Budget Blonde not be blogging buddies?!? ¬†Hehe, I love that someone else out there is proud to be a thrifty, budgety, DIY blonde like me!!
Anywhooooo…. I’ve got a to tell you all about one of my favorite things, one that Cat and I have had many a twitter conversation about……
If you read A { Blonde’s } DIY Life or follow me on twitter you know that I am nearly¬†obsessed¬†with this fabulous tool! ¬†I Love Pinning!!
You know how we all used to rip pages out of magazine and keep them in a file for inspiration, well this is the exact same thing, just it’s all online! ¬†So that fabulous something or other that you just HAVE to remember…..well ¬†just pin it to one of your boards and your good to go!! ¬†This site has saved me countless hours of searching for something that I was sure was so great that I would remember exactly were I saw it….and¬†inevitably never could!
Now, talk about an endless supply of inspiration! You can search a topic and find just about anything your little heart desires!!
I’ve been working on a project lately, and ¬†I really wanted to¬†incorporate a Greek Key Pattern with it, but just wasn’t sure how exactly I wanted to do it. ¬†Did you know that there are a TON of different versions of a Greek Key pattern?!? ¬†Well there are!!¬† And I really needed some inspiration on where to start, so…..yup, you guessed it I hopped on Pinterest!!
Here are a few of my favorite ways you could incorporate a little greek key in your life!!
Lucite + Greek Key = LOVE!!
Hellooooo LOVER!!
  I want to take you home with me, and I have just the spot for you right beside my sofa!!
Are you beginning to see all the different patterns and shapes that are all considered a greek key pattern ?!
Couldn’t you just die!?! ¬†I love this wall!!
 I must find a place for a greek key window treatment!
ummm…..note to self, I NEED a GREEK KEY bangle!!
Perfect little lamp shade!
All Images are via Pinterest, and if you are not already pinning, I suggest getting yourself on over to the site just as fast as you can!! ¬†It is the best blogging tool ever invented! ¬†And if you don’t blog, it is the best online organizing tool to be found! ¬†You just have to to start!
If you are already an addict like me, let me know! ¬†I’d love to come check out your boards to see what you have been pinning!
Now as for the exact pattern and shape of the Greek Key I’m using as my inspiration on the little piece I’m currently working on; you will just have to stop by and check out my blog! ¬†If you don’t see it right away, ¬†just keep checking back! ¬†I’m CURRENTLY working on this little¬†surprise, so you will just have to wait and see!


Thanks Ashley! I’m super excited to see what you come up with! And, for those of you who want to be BFFs with Ashley, you can find her on her blog, her twitter, her pinterest, and her facebook account. And, if you would like to be a Budget Buddy, please e-mail me at Cat [at] BudgetBlonde [dot] com! Have a great weekend!
