All of my Friday Favorites: 2010

I started posting Friday Favorites early this spring for a couple of reasons. I wanted to post more compelling and artistic content (not to mention blog more frequently), and I liked the simplicity of listing things that inspired me. A couple of my favorite blogs list weekly favorites, and I loved the idea so much I copied it. Hey-- Oprah does it. Why shouldn't we?

A small caveat: I pull photos from everywhere online, with many from Nathan's photography blog (those are working beautifully) and the website Weheartit (quite a lot of these photos are already broken, because as we all know, online content often has the lifespan of a fruit fly).

Without further ado,
I give you the complete, unabridged list of my 2010 Friday Favorites, a year in review:
