Pinterest! Our newest obsession.

Susan and I have started two pinterest boards, one dedicated to all things victorian; Victoriana Compendium and....

another to reproductions for the victorian era; Reproductions for Re-enactresses.

What is Pinterest?
"Think of Pinterest as a virtual pinboard — a place where you can create collections of things you love, and "follow" collections created by people with great taste.
People use Pinterest to collect and share all sorts of things -- wedding inspiration, favorite T-shirts, DJ equipment. You name it, people are pinning it."

Hmm, that sounds really neat! I definitely like the two themes you chose! :)

Because all the images are linked back to their source, Pinterest is great for collecting link, rather then having to bookmark them. I'm always coming across images I know I'll want to refer back to, but they can take up SO much space on ones computer! :)

This is really cool, I have never heard of this before.

It is pretty neat. Before I'd even heard of it, I was really hoping someone would come up with a sort of site for cataloging images online. This is almost exactly what I was looking for! :) The labeling process could use some work, but the ease of "pinning" is really smooth.

I can "invite" anyone who'd like to start an account. Originally I actually just clicked the "request an invite" button and they e-mailed me a few days later.
