I'm happy to let bloggers reprint photo's or project details with permission and credit given. Photos and projects on this blog are created by me and are my property. Please do not re-print without permission.
When I was in my 20's I actually took up photography. But I got discouraged with my skills and put it all away for many years. Then along came digital, and a Son who is a Photographer, and blogging, and my interest has been sparked again. Before my trip I purchased a new camera on the advise of my son and I am in love with it. I snapped over 400 pics on my Paris trip and wanted to share a few of the "art photo's" with you. I hope you enjoy, Paris through my eyes.

OK, I figured out how to switch to the old version of blogger. I sure hope they get the bugs fixed before they require all of us to be on the new version. How did I get so lucky to be a "tester" of the new interface?

Shopping day 2 smaller flea market, where the vendors sold out of the backs of their vans.

Shopping day 3 I tagged along with Val to a resale shop. She found some great linens and I scored this canister set. **********************
Keep pile, Since I took this shot, I realize that there is more that I am keeping, like the "dog race" game board.
Love my green iron scale, and the coat rack, see below for the label on the coat rack that "sold" me on this piece.
Tiny little purses, and keys, package carriers from old department stores and an enamel thermometer.
