From the Pinterest Goodies page, click your mouse on the "Pin It" button and simply drag and drop it onto your web browser's bookmarks bar.
You should notice the Pinterest "P" logo show up automatically if you did it right.
You can now go ahead and browse through your Tumblr dashboard until you come across anything you'd like to pin.
If you are interested in correctly setting the source URLs to all your pins, then you may want to click on the notes on the post to be taken to the actual live blog post so you can pin it from there.
Once you hit the Pin It button, you'll be shown a page with all the images pulled from whatever site you were just viewing.
(Keep in mind that this method works for all websites -- not just Tumblr.) Roll your mouse over the image you want, click the Pin It button that appears over the image and then you'll be able to select your board and fill in the rest of the details.
Anything you pin through the Pin It button gets pinned right to your boards, so you never have to manually save photos from Tumblr to your computer or mobile device and then upload them to Pinterest.

You can build your own IFTTT recipe or simply just use an existing recipe that reads your Pinterest account's RSS feed and posts any new pins on Tumblr.
