The trouble with PinterestThursday, December 20, 2012
How I think something's going to look.
How it actually looks.
The same applies to quirky present-wrapping techniques, hairstyles, and artful arrangements of festive twigs with which I keep accidentally poking myself in the face.
Both images via Pinterest, of course. Top: Source frustratingly difficult to find. Bottom: Illustration by the hugely talented, outrageously successful and one-year-younger-than-me Olimpia Zagnoli. There is no reason why her age is in any way relevant, except that it's my birthday in a few days. Make of that what you will.
