Weekly Pinterest finds

It’s time again to share some of my finds on Pinterest, a place I visit occasionally and try not to stay too long. I have a bunch of wonderful recipes pinned to one of my boards and have been trying out several of them. And if my waistline is any indication, they have been quite good. Damn that waistline.

Here are several of my recent finds. Clicking on the link below each photo will take you to my pin where you can click on ‘website’ in some cases.

 

 

This one is just cute.

Super Kitten

 

 

Beautiful portrait here. Wow.

Mare and Foal

 

 

This image is by a photographer who used to work with my son in New York. About a year ago, he quit architecture to pursue his passion in photography and was recently selected as American Photo Magazine’s One to Watch and was featured in their Sept/Oct issue. I visit his blog daily and love his work.

I love everything about this from the color of the walls to the window treatment, the display of plates, the drawers under the seats. I think it’s great.

Cute hat

 

 

I made this for dinner last night and my husband proclaimed it ‘pretty good’ which, for him, is high praise. He’s a man of few words but he knows what he likes.

Ok, you are never going to guess who this is. Don’t scroll down yet!!

Love the pinterest shares - that bird is so cute!! Also love that you shared that shrimp recipe - I see that in our weekend dinner plans!!

Low Tide High Style said...

Wow, all gorgeous images, and congratulations to your son's friend, I will check out his blog and artwork. And I guessed Martha, but only because I knew she had modeled earlier in life.

Enjoy this wonderful weather, we have our windows wide open!

Super Kitten is my favorite. No wait … it’s the Flaming Leaves! Nope! It the bird in the cute hat. Sailing! Wow! Cool Family - pretty cool. Okay! I think it’s Super Kitten. Isn’t Pinterest fun? I play there too. The bird in the hat really is cute.

Country Gal said...

Jeanne Walker said...

WOW, would have never guessed that was Martha! Love all the photos, especially of the Super Kitten and The Cool Family. That shrimp dish looks delish...too bad I'm allergic to shrimp! Have a great Thursday!

I like the mare and foal best.

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

That really doesn't look like Martha, amazing. The mare and foal are stunning.

I slept with the windows open last night. Aside from being kept awake by strange sounding birds and large sounding bugs, it was awesome.

Deltaville Jamie said...

One of my chickens is named Martha Stewart. I also have one named after a famous burlesque dancer. (my aren't I random today). I think Pinterest is the reason I'm behind in work. But I've gotten some great wedding and Baby Shower ideas and a gazillion recipes (I've actually used a lot of the recipes)

Daryl said...

Nellie said...

I think Martha still looks pretty good!

The shrimp dish looks like something we'd enjoy. And - it's from Skinnytaste, so it can't be all bad.:-)

Sending hugs,
Nellie

Sabrina said...

All of them so beautiful! I had a feeling that was Martha Stewart at the end there. But my favorite is that breakfast nook; I'd love it myself! The drawers under the seats, the book shelf area... *swoon*

It's chilly here today already. Sweater time! I kind of like it - I'm not a cold weather girl, but I am trying hard to ignore my annoyances about what comes next and just try to enjoy what's here and now. :)

Linda said...

LOVE the breakfast nook too! Horses always make me feel calm and at peace. I never would have guessed Martha! Going to try that shrimp dish :)

Cathy said...

Well those were just plain fun. And wow on Martha.... hope all is well, I think of you often.

The Weaver of Grass said...

Love the robin especially.

Marianne said...

Nice pins, Kate! (I'm not talking about your legs, but I'm sure they're lovely too.) I'm now following you on Pinterest, where I also have been known to spend a second or two.

Carolynn Anctil said...

Awesome collection! I never would have guessed that was Martha, in a million years!

Carolynn Anctil said...

P.S. It's 40°C on our front porch (that's stinkin' hot Fahrenheit)!

Debbie From Illinois said...

The giraffes cracked me up!!!

Ramona JapaneseRedneck said...

I love all the pics. The shrimp looks like something I would think of as tasty too.

Stephanie @ Tailgatequeen said...

Trusting to make the right decisions can be tough. It takes years to build confidence. Its not the sort of thing that simply just happens. Plumber Warner

Martha Stewart? No way!
