Curator Picks - 4/10

Pantone! Pantone children's books, pantone mugs, pantone eggs, pantone everything. We are obsessed with pantone at the moment. I don't really have anything to say about it, I just wanted you to know that I am acknowledging the pantone movement (and possibly ordering myself a Pantone 346U mug).

How is it that I've never heard of a Hummingbird Cake? It's a mixture of bananas, pineapple, cinnamon, and cream cheese?!! Can't believe I haven't tried this out yet. Hope no one from my company is reading this blog entry cause maybe I'll try Bake or Break's recipe for the semi annual Abrams bake-off this year. It's a bundt cake and I confess I haven't tried one of those, well ever, but I'm willing to give it a shot. At the very least there are certain people at home always eager to consume any of my baking missteps.

Tartelette is hosting a food styling and photography workshop in Northern Ireland! She's teaching it with Corrie Cadden, chef of the famed Belle Isle Cookery School in Enniskillen. It's for 3 days in July...kinda wish I could participate.

This competition would be perfect for one of my shoe-obsessed sisters: over on A Beautiful Mess today they are doing a shoe giveaway! Three readers will be able to choose whatever pair of shoes they want from Shoemint, which is an awesome membership based shoe shopping site created by actress Rachel Bilson, designer Nicole Chavez, and shoe legend Steve Madden.

Gabrielle at Design Mom does a great series on living with kids, where she profiles moms around the country living stylishly with children. Is this even possible? I have to believe it is and when I look at the photographs of today's featured mom and artist Kelly Rae Roberts' house I am inspired to make my own home a little more stylish.

Check out the great giveaway over on Cup of Jo today. You only have until tomorrow to enter so hurry up. The giveaway is from Cardigan and you could win their bestselling Elysse raglan crew. So cute!
