Viva Bailey Curator Besotted BlogViva Bailey is another wonderful reader that requested consideration for the Curator series, so I hopped over to Pinterest to see if it would be a good fit and from the looks above I do believe  it is! Her tastes are eclectic as it seems we all tend to be when presented with the ‘all you can see buffet’ of inspiration that is served up at Pinterest.  A good curator knows how to wade through the sea of goodness and present only the most tempting of morsels. I love her black + white board, although I wish there were more photo attributions, because I do love discovering a new to me photographer or two. I also love her very interestingly paired map + stars which has antique maps, constellation charts and a few modern ones thrown in for good measure. Viva updates her pins regularly so you are sure to be oohing and ahhing over her latest discovery as I have been this week!

P.S. If you are interested in being considered for a future Curator feature send me an email with a link to your boards or leave in the comments so we can all visit. I like curators that update often and have over 1,000 pins (the more the merrier). If you have a unique bent like Moira did with her canine curations that’s even better!

  1. Awww…your bio says that you’ll be relocating back to the city. I’ve enjoyed your photos from your new locale. Did you miss the concrete? I’m sure that wherever you are you will capture images with honesty and beauty. Your photos are an inspiration.

    1. Thank you Roberta! I miss people:) Not so much the concrete or traffic. If I was able to homestead here like you with chickens and a garden, but the land is on a National Park so none of that;) I am California heartsick to be sure.

  2. I love these Pinterest curator posts! Such a great way to discover new boards and inspiration. I especially like Viva’s boards as I am finding a lot of beautiful things I haven’t seen before. So far her Illustration board is my favourite. I’ve also enjoyed clicking through to the comments of these posts to find even more great pinners!

    I’m not sure if my taste is a bit too girly for your asthetic, but if you’d like to take a peek here is the link :)

    1. Thank you Katie! I have such fun putting these together. Yes, I agree her illustration board is great too! I will absolutely go take a peek!

  3. Thanks so much Tristan! And now of course I’m finding even more great pinners from the comments here :) I look forward to seeing & exploring future curators…

  4. Terrific post. I just pinned and followed Viva lovely boards. Thank you for continuing to curate the curators (you’re so meta). And thank you for the second “shout out” today.
