And the website I'm excited about today is My Deco File over at Domino:
Here's how it works: Create a My Deco File Image Grab bookmark in your web browser (Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc). Then whenever you are surfing the web and you see a picture of something you like, you can click the bookmark at the top of your browser and save the image to your My Deco File Image Library--it's much easier than it sounds.

Happy Friday everyone!
