One of the most fascinating things I stumbled upon this week: The Most Detailed (and illegal) Picture of the Internet.

I’ve been fascinated by Vine ever since it came out, as a fun way to tell stories with moving images (still haven’t quite mastered it myself) so reading this story this week really inspired me!

I was in New Orleans this past week for the annual Jazz Festival and was fascinated by the city. I came across these great vintage photographs taken in the 1930’s of Mardi Gras in New Orleans

 I love house/apt. tours of any kind. I really enjoyed this post on Design Sponge of designer Jessica Walsh’s apartment.
