9 Pinterest Accounts Every Southern Girl Should Follow
The South was basically made for an online scrapbooking tool such as Pinterest. Where else can a Southern born and bred girl search for recipes like her grandmother used to make, or learn how to effortlessly pull off gingham and the complex prints that filled her mother’s closet? When it comes to exploring all the nuances and beauty in every nook and cranny of the South, it’s a safe bet to assume that even the most expert pinners haven’t unlocked the vast potential of Pinterest. From down-home foodies and country style mavens to do-it-yourselfers and home decor enthusiasts—you can’t go wrong following any of these nine accounts. It’s just the welcomed distraction every Southern girl could use. We promise we won't judge you for lingering on the site longer than usual.
