A New Source Of Inspiration

Rochelle Hudson in 1935

Just the other day I discovered the fabulousness of Tumblr! I'd heard of it here and there through other blogs, but really never gave it a second thought. Then the other day one of Casey's tweets lead me to her wonderful tumblr blog. Casey's tumblr made me immediately start my own. How had I been missing so many incredibly inspiring photographs all these months and months! Casey's tumblr lead me to lots of other great tumblr blogs that lead me to all of these awesome pictures...


This beauty was found on Casey's tumblr and Casey found it on The Cats Pajamas' flickr.

This is Angela Lansbury!


Pictures found here and here!

If you'd like to visit my tumblr go here! There you'll also find all the lovelies I follow. Hmmm, it seems like most of my recent inspiration posts are girls in the 1930's or 1940's wearing shorts, playsuits or bathing suits, lol! I guess it has something to do with the extra hot weather we've been having everyday. I love summer!!!

PS: My Nanny part 2 in a couple days!

I'll have to go check out your tumblr... I still haven't gotten on that bandwagon but might after seeing all these lovely photos! I wish I could have all the outfits these vintage ladies are wearing.

Would never have guessed that was Angela Lansbury! I never really understood what tumblr was, although I'd heard people talking about it, I'm going to have a look right now!!

I have succeeded in getting yet another person addicted to Tumblr! haha. I'm so glad you're on Tumblr now--isn't it the most amazing place? I honestly stink at most of these sorts of things, but Tumblr keeps me coming back because it is that good (and it's mostly pictures--and I like looking at inspiring pictures!). ;)
