Anonymous asked: I know you've done it before but I can't find it, so here goes. Could you post what other Tumblrs you like or what influences you? I have a tough time finding things I like.

Hi there, anon! I’m not sure if anyone else has actually asked me what blogs that I like or influences me yet. If no one else hasn’t and I didn’t simply forget, then you are the first.

There are a ton of Tumblrs that I am fond of, the majority of what I follow and what ends up on my dashboard is content that I really enjoy. I think I will first mention a couple of blogs that have influenced me, and then list blogs that I like that post specific content.

Blogs That Have Influenced Me

enchantingimagery - She also owns Labyrinth Nook, a blog dedicated the film Labyrinth (1986),which is the blog that first helped me discover Tumblr. I signed up for Tumblr many years before, but it wasn’t until Labyrinth Nook that I first started using Tumblr.  I then discovered her primary blog, which is composed of fairy tale and fantasy imagery, as well as some of her own occasional writing and thoughts with film. I think if I was to pinpoint blog that truly influenced me, it would be hers. I also have an affinity for fairy tales, and she was the one who helped me get into the golden age of children’s illustrations, with artists such as Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac.

sisterhimalyas - A nature, travel, and spirituality blog. I’ve always enjoyed her content a lot. Her curation is quite lovely. She has themed/matching curation “sets”, I am not sure if there is a name for that, but she uses the grid layout, where she will post a set of images that look similar to the other, so that they flow together. The owner of sisterhimalyas mentioned that moonsiren does it too. I think that blog is wonderful as well. If I ever go for a grid layout again, I might try what they and others have done with curation “sets”.

houseofsighs - Her blog is an absolute treasure. Her tightly done curation theme of the dark and the ethereal is very inspiring to me. I am always very flattered when she reblogs from me, because it’s hard for me not to reblog “too much” from her. Her main blog I believe, is musabenedetta. Her other blogs that she has are great too.

Blogs I enjoy off the top of my head:

Art for Adults (art blog)

Jaded Mandarin (art blog)

Cave to Canvas (art blog)

23silence (art blog)

9artemis

rolandscapes

sheonlysaid (has quotes that I like)

Larmoyante (quotes blog)

thegardennymph (nature blog)

focalgirl (posts various things I like, has interesting nudes, nsfw)

There are a ton more and that doesn’t even scratch the surface of what I like, but I have to go soon to watch the movie Lucy with a friend. I will make a more in-depth post soon of blog recommendations for you. Hope you have a good day, anon.

So much water-related art on my dashboard today, it’s tricky to decide if I should reblog onto my main blog or Water-Inspired.

"Tasha Lewis has started a global street art project where she will create 4,000 magnetic butterflies and then send them in packs of 400 to 10 groups around the world. In total, the swarms of butterflies will travel to 100 different homes, hopefully landing in all seven continents."

This is possibly the best photo of a rainbow ever
The natural wonder was captured by photographer Justin Lee, who was overjoyed to find himself in exactly the right place at the right time. Mr Lee, from British Columbia, Canada, was standing close to a cliff at the Tunnel View lookout when he spotted the colourful scene.  He said: ‘The sun has to be in position to get the rainbow, and this photo was not planned by me beforehand. I just happened to be in the right place at the right time. ‘I couldn’t believe how lucky I was to see such a sight, and just had to start taking pictures straight away.’
