So I admit it-I love vintage stuff. I don't know what it is about it-well really I do. It's got character! I know that Pottery Barn and such brands are very appealing to most, (and yes, I do drool over their magazines) but for me-if it isn't at least 20 years old and rusting, I don't swoon over it. I love finding Vintage pieces, and have found that I am most attracted to things I can put in my kitchen. LIke these salt and pepper shakers (up top) I got last week at a garage sale for .25 cents. I mean-come on! 25 cents? I would have paid a lot more.. and when I found these spice jars (a set of 15 for $2.50) I thought I had died and gone to heaven. When I bought them they had faded wood tops, but nothing in our house is safe from Spray Paint and Sandi's hand. Aren't they so cute now? I wanted bright red tops, but my Spray Paint supply was dwindling and I didn't feel like a trip to the store.
I recently discovered this blog - I just want to follow her around one day. What a visual treat for anyone who shares my (if it's broke, all the better philosophy.)
So do you like my photos? One of my summer goals was to stop shooting on the Auto setting and venture into the world of Manual. These are the first pictures I am sharing in my Manual setting photography. I've had a lot of emails from readers wanting to know how I shoot, how I learned etc.. Well, first off-my photography really isn't all that great - I'm working hard to make it better though! But here is one amazing photographer who was getting a gazillion emails herself so she put together a super easy to understand guide to photography which I snapped up and am loving. So go email Shannon and get her guide, it can teach you WAY more than I can!
OH-and sorry for the latest color change. I never died my hair funky colors so I guess I'm taking it out on my blog. I think the latest color will stay for a while. ;)
