Pinterest is all the rage when it comes to home and apartment projects. We at Gables Montecito wanted to put a DIY Apartment Fun Pinboard together of a few of our favorite DIY apartment ideas.
If you are unfamiliar with Pinterest, it is a virtual pinboard, that allows you to take any image from the internet and place it on a categorized pinboard. You can take any image from any website and add it to your collection. Let’s say you search Google for “Decorating Ideas” and you come across a website that has an idea you like, instead of doing it the old school way and bookmarking it, you can download the Pinterest bookmarklet, and add that decorating idea to your “Decorating Ideas” Pinterest board, to come back and view later.
Pinterest is also a great way for brides to plan their weddings. You can search Pinterest for “Wedding ideas on a budget” and you’ll get tons of images that match your search. When you click on an image, it will show you a how-to or where you can purchase what you are looking at.
Do you use Pinterest for other things? Let us know in the comments!

It’s the first week of January and I already have broken my New Year’s Resolutions. I want to drink less, eat healthier food, reduce my coffee intake and exercise more. Sounds like pretty standard New Year’s Resolutions to me. I should be able to keep at least one or two of them.
I can admit that I have a tiny love affair with my smart phone, who doesn’t right? I decided to look for apps that would help me keep my New Year’s Resolutions.
Check out this article to help you find the right app for you Gables Montecito. Are you going to download any of these apps? Let us know in the comments.

Hi, my name is Buster and I currently live in Gables Montecito. It’s a really great place. Since I moved here I have unofficially helped out with Security. It’s in my bones. Although I am a Bichon Frieze, as a pup I was lucky enough to be sent to and graduate from the prestigious Rottweiler Academy in Stuttgart Germany (Only the second “Bichon” to be so honored!!).
Back home I have tried to live my life with dignity, and grace. O.K. there have been a few incidents. One with a really nasty cockapoo which never should have happened but I was able to rely on my training and diffused what could have been a really ugly situation.
Now I live here in Florida with my Mom and Dad in semi-retired bliss. I always enjoy meeting new neighbors, usually on the street (It’s where I conduct most of my business!) By the way if you meet me, I love to be scratched behind my left ear.
Thank you, BUSTER
