It’s been a little while since we’ve shared another favorite pinner! We are excited to introduce you today to Beth Kirby, the all-around creative genius behind the food(and so much more!) blog, Local Milk. Do you follow her? Lindsey of Cafe Johnsonia introduced us and we are completely smitten. If you love beautiful styling and delicious food, you’ll love her pins. We asked Beth to tell us a little bit about herself and share three of her most favorite recent pins so we can get a flavor of her impeccable aesthetic. Here’s what she had to say:

A sorghum evangelist with southern gothic leanings, I’m a writer, photographer, stylist, and cook born and raised in the Tennessee mountains. I’ve led an eclectic life, living everywhere from New Orleans to the Netherlands, but I moved back to Tennessee two years ago and found myself inspired by what had been there all along: home.

Especially home cooking. Southern cooking is story telling, and I created my food & lifestyle blog “Local Milk“ as a place to share my writing, photography, and seasonal, from scratch recipes. It’s a space devoted to cooking and simple, creative ways to make everyday life more beautiful, even if it’s just a shift in perspective. Or a biscuit.

I spend my days creating, styling, and shooting dishes; dreaming up new projects from an online shop (coming soon!) to pop up dinners to workshops, and I’m in the process of writing my first cookbook. I like to do a lot of everything and have an abiding passion for home, fashion, travel, and the arts as well as food.

I draw on everything around me for inspiration: the Jungian tomes my fiancé reads, a vintage copper kettle, my favorite Françoise Hardy album, an old hunting boot. All the different bits of life are connected, and it’s art’s job to illuminate those interconnections. That’s what my work, albeit humbly, aims to do.

Some of her favorite pins, straight ahead!

We’re so excited to share another favorite pinner in our new series. Her name is Lianna and her eye is impeccable. Do you follow her? We think you should! We asked Lianna to tell us a little bit about herself and asked, What are a few of your most favorite recent pins?

Lianna Lissauer was born and raised in New York City. She moved to New England several years ago to restore a 1740′s farm with her husband and 4 children, beginning an epic adventure with equal parts wonder and mishap. The daughter of a Broadway producer and a curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Lianna spent her childhood running loose in the halls of the Museum and backstage on Broadway.

Her background in the fine arts and design has led her to work in a variety of fields including fashion, interior design, prop styling, and production design. She has just opened an online shop, LIANNA BOHEME, which specializes in vintage and handmade clothing and decor. Lianna is working on a forthcoming blog, “The Kindred Table,” which she hopes will connect her love for writing, cooking, gardening, and country life with personal narratives and anecdotes from her unusual past.

Cecilie Ellefsen

A few weeks ago I introduced a new series to spotlight favorite pinners and find out what inspires them most. Here’s the second post in the series — nicely coinciding with Gabrielle trip to Norway. Enjoy!

We’re so excited to feature fabulous pinner, Cecilie Ellefsen. She’s a Norwegian illustrator living and working in Oslo. Here‘s what she has to say about her colorful and whimsical aesthetic:

Growing up in a rural part of Norway, nature and animals have always inspired me. The feeling of finding that secret childhood forest with enchanted critters, hollow trees, traps and hideaways fascinates and inspire me. I love to draw and always bring my sketchbook with me. When I`m not drawing, I like to eat good food, watch strange animated films and visit fleamarkets to find treasures for my ever growing collections.”

We asked her to pick a couple of her favorite recent pins and share just why she loves them.

Cecilie’s favorite pins, straight ahead!
