More fun with Photo's and Junk of course, and some News

The cool candles in the pic above can be purchased from Gloria at Sweet Peas

The centerpiece above uses an old farm disk at the base, with some old books, zinc seed pots, plant markers and a dried hydrangea

Several of you have asked what kind of camera I'm playing with. It's a Cannon Rebel XS 35mm with a flash attachment. Speedlight 430ES II. It's the camera my Son the photographer suggested my Husband get for better pics. I'm slowly learning about f-stops, shutter speed, angle of flash, automatic and non automatic settings etc. It's a lot to take in, and I have a new appreciation for good photographers.

For every good photo I show you there are 20-30 not so good ones.
And I do use Photoshop to do some color and light manipulation.

Big News-for me at least.
I'm going to Round Top/Warrenton
Got me a place to stay today!!!!! Not an easy task.
Not going to sell, but to shop, scout and photograph.
Can't wait to take you along.
Look for reports later this month.

Margo - Have a great time! We went down there twice and LOVED every single minute! If you're looking for bargains try out some of the flea markets off the beaten path. But do be sure and see all the great, wonderful, beautiful places & vendors down there! It's a junker heaven!!! How long are you staying? Are you going with your hubby?

I love the way you put those skinny candles in that glass flower thinga-ma-jiggy. I never could get more creative than putting pencils in there. Off to buy skinny candles.

Be sure and look us up in Bar W Field, by the exit at the far back cattle guard. We call it "Porta Potty Row". Just ask for Cowboy Andy. You need to meet Renee (ajunkqueen) also. Have a great time! Susan
