Link love :: the I Love Color edition

by Tsh Oxenreider

Tsh is the founder of this blog and just finished traveling around the world with her husband and 3 kids. Her latest book is Notes From a Blue Bike, and believes a passport is one of the world's greatest textbooks.


If you’ve never explored ColourLovers, you’re missing out on a treat.  I get so much of my design inspiration there – oodles of great color combos!

There was a lot of good stuff in my reader this week. Which, coincidentally, brings me to question asked by reader Laura:

“I’ve told you before that I love the Link Love posts. So my question is: how do you collect them?”

Laura, I collect them using a very scientific method of browsing the internet. No, really – most of them are from blogs I subscribe to, but I also sometimes enjoy links your fellow readers send me in Delicious (by bookmarking something with the tag “for:simplemom”). I also use Stumble Upon, though I rarely have time to stumble upon anything new, ironically, and I do enjoy the community on Twitter – sometimes I’ll follow a link they recommend. Other than that, it’s plain-and-simple feed reading.

Now, on to my favorite finds from the week…

  4. hi!

    i love the ideas for framed pictures from cottage living. i have been trying to figure out what to do with the 10 zillion pictures on my computer, especially the ones of my 6 month old daughter. it’s so daunting to think about trying to decide which ones to blow up to frame, which ones to print and put into an album, etc. any suggestions??

    Erin’s last blog post…Monkey t-shirt or onesie

    • Hmm… With my kids, I tend to like the up-close photos of mostly the face. You’ve given me a good topic for a future post – and I think I’ve got just the right person to ask for a guest post. 😉
