We Finally Got It!




Yes, it's true. I am the proud owner of a Canon PowerShot A520 with a whooping 4.0megapixels! I would first like to thank my Parents for donating some moola towards it as well as James for putting up with my exhaustive research and inability to make a decision. I would also like to thank those blog readers out there for all of their kind advice-it really helped. As you can tell from the photos above, I have not read the instruction manual, but I plan on studying and becoming much better at taking non-blurry photos.
Thanks also for all of the kind words regarding my stamps. I am very happy with my results and am thinking about making some sets of cards and maybe selling them on etsy or through my blog using paypal. What do you think? Maybe the market is flooded with cards right now-we'll see.
Anyway, about the photos above, the first is a close up of the 1930's sewing machine I use. Yeah, that's what I use. It is so beautiful, it belonged to my step grandma Millie. It can really only sew straight lines-nothing else. Someday I'll upgrade (but never get rid of it). The sweaters are some thrift store finds that I scored today. The blue and white ones are OLD Pendelton. They fit great, and I hate to say it, but vests are back. I'll just call the white one a sleeveless deep v-neck cardigan. The books were also part of my thrift store adventures. James loves the "Spys" one and wants to name a band after it. I love the colors of the Shakespere and Nursing one. I also think the 1950's cookbook has great design elements.
I will be posting more this weekend, but this was just a little update.
*By the way...I am SO far behind on the trends. James and I just got Six Feet Under on our Netflix-so good!*
