   Tuesday is one of those days where I just want to wrap up in a fluffy blanket, listen to Edith Piaf, watch more Downton Abbey, and eat a giant helping of sweet potato chips. Although my schedule would never allow that to happen. I am always the student that is bombarded with assignments that were "talked about in class" two weeks ago, written in planner, forget to check until two days before. Yes, that is Tuesday for me. (And Wednesday. Actually mostly Wednesday because I always find ways to procrastinate).
  Speaking of procrastination, I finally set up my printer this evening and used it to scan in many little things I have purchased recently. I was so excited to share, and many more to come. Instead of clothing pieces, I have a new and recent obsession with vintage postcards and photographs. My favorite find was the photograph of the man standing in front of the Nelson, which I visit quite frequently (here and here, on blog). Yay for new collecting that does not require needing a third closet! (Yes, I have two closets. Sigh.)


  1. I want a Tuesday like that as well. I just got Season 3 of Downton today, and i just wanna watch it all... but TOO MUCH WORK TO BE DONE.:(

  3. that's a great new obsession, I must say! I love vintage photographs and postcards! that reminds me that I haven't been to the flea market hunting for those for a while now - I should go back there soon! :-)
    also, I absolutely love Downtown Abbey and any other series, films and books about manor houses and the 18th/19th century - that's an obsession of mine too! ;-)

    I love finding old photographs or postcards. They give you a glimpse into a stranger's life from long ago, which I find very interesting and neat. I love finding little connections to the past and the people in it.
