friday favorites | january 24, 2012

Ahhhh, the new format, I loves it!! But I have a request for you all, pretty please! If you want to pin some of these items on Pinterest, that's awesome, but please click the link next to "Source" under the photo and pin from the original site where the content is found. I noticed that several of last week's picks were pinned from my blog, meaning that the original source is no longer credited in the pin. As a scrapper that makes me sad, because I want the people who create content to actually get the credit for it- all I'm doing is pointing out what I find cool.

Can you guys help me out with that, please?


Okay, with the housekeeping out of the way, lets get on with this week's picks, shall we?
