PINTEREST CURATOR TWIGS FLORAL STUDIO

PINTEREST CURATOR TWIGS FLORAL STUDIOS BESOTTED BLOG

 

I am sure you are all aware of the saying hindsight is 20/20, right?  If I were thinking properly I probably would have put together more of my curator posts in anticipation of my new arrival, but nope, I did not. Today, though I had a tiny window to stop over and visit my beloved Pinterest (has it really been 2 weeks from my last visit?) and was inspired to feature Pinterest Curator Twigs Floral Studio.  I actually thought I had featured them previously, but I looked through the archives and couldn’t find them, I hate when I do that! I have to say they are one of my faves, I almost always re-pin after them, they are visual treasure hunters.  They also happen to be very talented as well, take a look at their work board. Some of their other boards I find inspiring are: Work Spaces, Wild Things, and Art. Definitely go pay them a visit.

I want to wish everyone a happy thanksgiving and for my overseas friends happy Thursday!  I am so grateful for so much right now, but I am especially appreciative of your support and visits, thank you!

PINTEREST CURATOR ANNA FINNBOGADOTTIR

ANNA FINNBOGADOTTIR PINTEREST CURATORAny person that dedicates a Pinterest board to bread is ‘A.Okay’ in my book and that is how I was able to decide that Anna Finnbogadottir would be my Pinterest Curator today, you see it’s all very scientific around here. Of course Anna has the Stockholm cred that I envy, something about these Swedish pinners that has me at bright white wood floors. I love all the texture that can be found in her Grey board, and I completely started a re-pin fest at her White board. One of the sweetest boards she has is the Smile board, photos of pretty girls with pretty smiles, what could be better? Bread, yes bread might be better…

PINTEREST CURATOR BETH KIRBY

Pinterest Curator Beth Kirby Besotted Blog

If you are ready to fall into a visual wonderland of pins than you need to visit Beth Kirby of Local Milk. I could have gone dark and dramatic with her board above, or calm + neutral, or even deep and jewel like, she has so many options to choose from but somehow they all form a a cohesive package of beauty.  I loved her Pigment board, an ode to painters, it was refreshing and many of her choices were new introductions which is something I always enjoy–the thrill of discovery! Photons is clever and I loved seeing what she actually had in there. Her Portrait board was definitely inspiring, for someone like myself that doesn’t like their photo taken, there are so many beautiful+ unusual shots to consider for the future.

Beth was a recommendation and I apologize my brain is not working as well as before to give proper credit where it is due . I heard terrifying news that my brain will shrink up to 6% with this pregnancy, so be prepared for me to just drool on my keyboard in the ensuing weeks. I feel like my brain shrinks a little more every day. Any advice on how to prevent this from happening or to combat baby brain?  Is it even possible?  I signed up for a bunch of classes recently, which I promise to let you know more about, because I want to exercise my brain as much as possible before she (my baby with currently no name) arrives. Wish me luck!

PINTEREST CURATOR NICOLE FRANZEN

Curator Nicole Franzen Besotted Blog

You probably have seen today’s curator work before in such publications as Martha Stewart Living and Kinfolk, or even on Pinterest where here work gets pinned by millions. Nicole Franzen has such a good eye for capturing beautiful and intimate images that it is no wonder that her Pinterest boards are also a reflection of that unique aesthetic. I don’t even like beards but I found myself loving nearly all of her ‘beards’ board, who knew that was possible? I repinned an embarrassing amount on her Flora board, such inspiration there! The Stills board is a perfect resource for any budding stylist, such restraint but still the images have such impact.  I love that she introduced me to new photographers + stylists that I may have never had the opportunity to enjoy, such as Thomas Popinger, Idha Lindhag, Catherine Huckerby, Mikkel Vang, Sharyn Cairns and the talent behind the walnut photograph in the lower right of the curator board above– Dietland Wolf, amongst so many wonderful others.  I am still shaking my head at how everything is so balanced-the color, the texture, the beautiful light and simplicity of Dietland’s image. I don’t think I need to sell you on Nicole, just go visit her and get lost for yourself.

What about you?  Do you have a favorite photographer that you discovered is a pinning savant?  Or are you one?  Let me know in the comments or email besottedblog [at] gmail [dot] com, I always visit the boards you suggest and you just might find your favorite pinner or yourself here if you drop me a line!

P.S. Yes, I know I am late on the tutorial I promised; sitting for any period of time is not conducive with being this pregnant, things fall asleep, cramp up or my brain freezes and I forget what the heck I sat down to do in the first place, it’s all so very odd, but the tutorial has been shot and is forthcoming!

PINTEREST CURATOR SARAH KIEFFER

Curator Sarah Kieffer Besotted BlogI usually know when to feature a curator when I find that I spend an inordinate amount of time re-pinning their pins, such is the case with today’s Pinteresr Curator–Sarah Kieffer.  Sarah is the authoress, baker + photographer behind The Vanilla Bean Blog, as the title suggests it is food centric. A lot of Sarah’s boards follow suit in the food department, but truly she has an eclectic mix of boards with an emphasis on great photography.  Some of the boards I’ve gotten lost in are dishware, gatherings, portrait, and put a bird on it (the title made me laugh out loud, for all you Portlandia fans). One of the best things about her boards are the hidden treasures such as this handy dandy gadget (I must get myself one!) I hope you enjoy perusing her collections and unearth some hidden treasures of your own!

On another note, yes, at nearly 8 months I am completely food obsessed (thus Sarah’s boards were some serious visual candy). I have never been so ravenous in my life and that’s after I finish (insert meal here-breakfast, lunch, dinner, etc.) It’s quite a 360 from my previous pregnancy incarnation of a few months ago where I couldn’t look at food. I do have one odd craving and it’s ice, I must eat about 6-8 trays of it a day. It’s a sign of iron deficiency which I did have, but even after it has been addressed I still have to have copious amounts of the frozen goodness. It’s not the most ladylike craving with me chomping away on the cubes, but I suppose it’s better than craving other things like dirt which falls into the same category that ice is in, no real nutritional value but got to have it anyways.
