Pinning and Pining: April 2013

This is the inaugural "Pinning and Pining" post.  In this series (the first series at ZVH), I will show some of the things I have been pinning at Pinterest, and things I have been pining after.


 A little research one night, and I found out this was in a Martha Stewart Magazine.  I should have known this was from Martha.  I think this would be nice for Nick and I.

The recipe looks so flavorful.  This may be a future side dish with chicken tacos, or something for the NFL  Draft later this month. 

This is inspiration for our future kitchen.  We love dark, chocolate cabinets, and stainless steel tiles for the backsplash.  We are also considering putting up shelves, but at this point it's on the optional list.


I ran into these prints a couple weeks ago.  There are championship prints for the 4 major leagues (MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL) and NCAA Men's Basketball, Olympic, MLS, World Cup, EURO, and UEFA CL.  Nick loves the Arkansas NCAA BB championship from 1994, and I love the most recent Packers Superbowl Championship.

I have loved this necklace and dozens of other pieces of jewelry from Tweak, for years now.  I check out this website a couple times a year, but I have never pulled the trigger, and bought any of the pieces I adore.

I have been thinking about making a quilt, which I haven't done since I was in high school.  I need a large lap quilt to cuddle under and watch TV.  This is my idea right now.  Need some motivation to get going and finish this project, though.

So there you go, the first of the Pinning and Pining series.  I hope you enjoy it.
