Pin It Weekly #157

We have made it home! Yay! It's time to resume Pin It Weekly. I missed my pinning. If you're tired of seeing photos from the Great Lakes, you're in the wrong blog. Before we left, I had to do some research of the area and I haven't had much time for pinning since we got home last night. So here are a few things that I was pinning before the off-grid experience began. They are all on my "Great Lakes, region" Pinterest board.

From Minnesota to Ohio, towns along the Midwest's Great Lakes capture the summer vacation spirit. Here are some of our favorite Great Lakes getaways, with tips on exploring each one.

The three largest Great Lakes (Huron, Michigan and Superior) lap against the shores of the upper arm of Michigan, where beauty and bounty feel timeless: <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">www.midwestliving...</a> <a class="pintag searchlink" data-query="%23upperpeninsula" data-type="hashtag" href="/search/?q=%23upperpeninsula&rs=hashtag" rel="nofollow" title="#upperpeninsula search Pinterest">#upperpeninsula</a> <a class="pintag searchlink" data-query="%23michigan" data-type="hashtag" href="/search/?q=%23michigan&rs=hashtag" rel="nofollow" title="#michigan search Pinterest">#michigan</a> <a class="pintag" href="/explore/travel/" title="#travel explore Pinterest">#travel</a> <a class="pintag searchlink" data-query="%23midwest" data-type="hashtag" href="/search/?q=%23midwest&rs=hashtag" rel="nofollow" title="#midwest search Pinterest">#midwest</a>

I've noticed more and more of what I call "porch signs." Ideas, inspiration, "rules," written on signs to hang in comfortable locations. The porch is probably the most comfortable locale, hence the name. Since they seem to be "the thing" now, I thought I'd share a few of my favorites.

Oh, my, I like this.  I need to make it for those summer nights on the front porch.

This is a more playfull and experimental way of displaying information. It is not very practical for important information as it's hard to read however can be useful as a design feature.

I love having these kinds of signs around--just to remind us of what's important!
