Blog spotlight: Little Tin Soldier

I haven't done one of these in a while! In the many months that I've been doing Adored Austin, I've been introduced to hundreds of amazing self-style blogs. My bookmarks are out of control, but I wouldn't have it any other way!

One of my new favorite style blogs is Little Tin Soldier. Linda, the stylish chic who owns it, lives just down I35 from me in San Antonio. She's an illustrator as well as a fashion maven and she started Little Tin Soldier as a way to challenge herself to do at least one drawing per day:

Regarding Little Tin Soldier, Linda says:

"Little Tin Soldier is a homage to my favorite fairy tale, "The Steadfast Tin Soldier" by Hans Christian Andersen. The story chronicles the life of a little tin soldier who falls in love with a paper doll. Unfortunately, he is thrown from a window but eventually ends up back at his house. But then one of the boys flings him into the fireplace. The paper doll blows into the fire, too. He melts into the shape of a heart.

I started the blog in January 2010 as a way to encourage myself to draw one picture everyday. As a little girl, I loved paper dolls. I thought it would be fun to feature a paper doll alongside my daily outfits."

I love it. If you're on Tumblr, make sure to follow Little Tin Soldier. If you're not, add it to your ever growing list of bookmarks!
