Just thought I would share a link to my tumblr page: valeriejar.tumblr.com. If you enjoy reading this blog, you may also be interested in what's over there. Above is a preview of the types of things that get posted. It’s sort of an offshoot of this blog, with quick visual picks of my likes, inspiration, wants, wishes; often pertaining to art, fashion, architecture, photography, and the like. Also, please let me know if you have a tumblr page too! I would love to check it out.
