I needed light. I needed vintage.
And this is how the post started.
So...I hung a display of vintage mirrors on my living room wall. And they do help a bit reflecting some light around the room.
And then the post took a turn... because I have some exciting news I just have to share. While I was goofing off at an auction last weekend, my hubby was checking out the latest and greatest (but not the most expensive!!) in digital cameras.
My trusty SLR was doomed to spend the rest of it's days in the camera bag since we got a digital several years ago. I missed the versatility of changing lenses but soon became fond of being able to delete the "bad" pics with the touch of a button.
Who wants to get film developed just to even see if the pictures turned out!?
But Sweet Man-O-Mine found out that those old SLR lenses of ours would work on a new fandangled Sony digital camera!
Well holy bean soup, who'd a thunk it.
Of course me being me....I protested.
"I don't want to carry around a HUGE camera anymore!" I said.
But when I got that new camera in my hands...it was like apple pie fresh from the oven. Yummy.
I can CHOSE when I want to focus myself. I can CHOSE when I want the flash to go off! And those poor lonely lenses got dusted off and put back to use.
(sorry old Minolta...you have to stay in the bag.)
Meanwhile, I'm playing with hubby's new camera (yes, he's a keeper!) and this is what it's STILL looking like in good ole North Dakota. Good grief.
Even this poor little bird is wondering where spring is but was ever so photogenic.
(this pic taken with the new camera through a thick glass paned door)
Oh yeah, and that auction I was at...here's my prize purchase. Say what?!
Me thinks this one went to the birds!
(And of course I had to color out my messy garage so I could show you!)
And so the post ends. Now, what was I posting about? Oh yeah, mirrors. Will post next on a trick for doing the vinyl wall words if you don't have a fancy dancy cricut machine.
