Happy Friday + New Tumblr























So, I think it's official.  I have a problem.  If you asked me last week whether or not I could fit any other activities into my daily life, which consists of:
full time job + blog + shop + reading this addictive series + maintaining  a relationship with B + sleep
I would have said HELL no.  But alas, after a suggestion from this lady (who also happens to be the same person that talked me into joining Twitter), I have decided to begin a tumblr scrapbook of sorts entitled, "Down and Out Chic Part II" (impressive huh?  You'll have to excuse me if I'm not feeling clever, it's Friday!)
Have I completely lost my mind?!  Well, maybe but I come across so many images every day that I want to share but they really don't have a home here on D&OC.  My hope is that the tumblr account will be more of a visual scrapbook with a focus on interiors and photography. I won't be doing any writing, just sharing pretty images. 
Granted, I don't really know how to use tumblr but I've posted some photos already and I'd love for you to take a peek.  If you use Google Reader, you can also add it to your subscriptions if you feel so inclined or you can follow via tumblr.  If you have a tumblr account, please leave me the link. I'd love to check it out!
Happy Friday lovelies.  I suppose you know what I'll be doing this weekend :)
xo,
Christina

Haha. I know what you mean. Your tumblr looks lovely. I started one this year when I was on study leave and supposed to be studying (piecesofe.tumblr.com), which is also a place to collect images. I have also started using Pinterest, which is completely addictive and time-wasting and I'd advise against it if you are weak when faced with pretty pictures, as I am.

It's beautiful! I'm impressed that you joined Twitter. I have considered it but am not sure that I can fit another thing on my to-do list!

I like the suitcases photo. I don't know how other bloggers do it. I can't keep up trying to read the everyday or several times a day posters never mind actually writing it.

Carol@TheDesignPages said...

Great images. I wonder if you realize that already there are themes that are similar in a lot of the photos. I am always amazed at how quickly we can identify the things we love with images even if we didn't know we loved it.

Lindsay - Paint Me A Picture said...

Just when I thought I couldn't find more things to drool over.

Very nice collection. As always, thanks for sharing.

Rhianne said...

I love tumblr! Starting mine was one of the best things I've ever done - theres no blog pressure just pretty images of things I love.

Yours looks lovely, I'm so excited that you started one :)
