A Few of My Favorite Pinners


Oh, Pinterest. Before you, I used to tear out a thousand pages from magazines and file them away in heavy binders, not now…you’ve made life so much simpler.
And although I don’t pin thousands upon thousands of images, I am able to see my style more clearly defined through my curated boards and pins. Today, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite pinners. The ones I find myself re-pinning from again and again.

Above are pins from Ginny Branch Stelling, she has a keen eye for detail, and all things lovely. As a fellow stylist, some of my favorite boards are her Objects of Use & Props, and Tablescapes/Tabletop. I could easily create my Christmas and Birthday wish lists for eternity, directly from those boards. Swoon worthy.


Another favorite are the pins above from, Janna Lufkin, who also happens to be a stylist (I’m sensing a trend here). I love her Kitchen and Pantries board…it’s filled with inspiring kitchen images from grand to simple. And she shows her classic eye for clothing with her Great Clothes/Great Style board.


And a relatively, new to me, pinner is Lianna Boheme. Her boards have a romantic, feminine style to them that seem to transport you to a bygone era. My two favorites are her City | Mouse and Country | Mouse. For those of us who wouldn’t mind living in an apartment in the big city, and a small, quiet cottage by the lake.

Now, it’s your turn….Who are some of your favorite pinners?


Friday Favorites: Sweet Peas


Aren’t Sweet Peas such darling, old fashion flowers? I bought a few bundles from a roadside flower stand, and they smell like heaven. I plan to scatter small bouquets all over the house this weekend. Our weather is breezy, and I hope the scent carries throughout the entire place!


Years ago, I used to grow them, but can’t remember why I ever stopped?
Maybe in my next garden…


And just for you, some inspiring Sweet Pea links:

Tips on how to plant and grow them from seed.
Wish I had thought of making a wreath. So lovely.
To celebrate the most romantic occasion.
So every day can smell like spring.
Almost too beautiful to eat.
And my favorite, Sweet Pea Bakery!

Have a gorgeous weekend, my friends. xo, H

Giandomenico Frassi

Are any of you ready for your weekend to look like this? Everything about this setting, taken by Italian photographer Giandomenico Frassi, is relaxing. Wish I was there!
Instead, I’ll be doing a little bit of work this weekend, followed by a Sunday barbecue with family. I still need to plan the menu, but I know it will involve firing up the grill.

Here’s a few things that caught my eye this week on the world wide web…

I just bought 3 sets of these and a couple of these. Anyone remember Martha By Mail? They’re so similar to the ones they used to carry, hence the play on the name.
* Thanks to Chelsea, I’ve watched nearly all of these…so beautiful in their simplicity.
* I’m waiting for an opportunity/event to do this over my door.
One of my favorite stores in Paris opened up shop online. Their linens are amazing, truly.
I’ve really loved following Brooke’s posts on building Patina Farm. She has impeccable style and I’ve enjoyed reading about their journey and the insight on their design and process.

Thank you so much for spending part of your week with me…have a great weekend!
