Picture perfect

I love taking pictures. This love affair with a camera probably started when my parents gave me a camera eons ago. I remember having a camera where you just dropped a film cartridge into the back and that was it! All self contained. Anyway, it's a great way to document special times, and create memories.

Last weekend, my dd and I drove two hours north to an antique fair. She found out about it online, and we thought we would make a day of it. We did not find many bargains, but I did take some fun pictures.

I love these pretty vases.

A lot of vendors did a great job of displaying their goods.

Isn't this great? I don't know if you can see how they used birdhouses through out this little garden area. I would love to do something like this down our side yard.

I have to say that I had more fun looking for interesting shots then I did looking for treasures. Maybe the next time we will have more success :-)

Have a great weekend! Happy quilting.......

Good luck on finding more treasures next time.

Whoa! A cartidge, hmmm ... I remember the old roll up film you had to 'feed' onto the spool then roll it to get it to pic #1 ... then manually roll to the next pic. You're a young one! Chuckle.

TYSM for the warm thoughts & words the other day. I am doing a bit better but will be 'living' with Drs. the next couple of weeks. You are truly appreciated ...

Have a beautiful weekend. TTFN ~ Marydon

Glad you had a good time. I love antiques, that is how I grew up going to antique shops and auctions.

Oh how fun Jocelyn, I love poking through old stuff like that, though I rarely buy anything.

Too bad you passed up that old wicker magazine rack. I find it hard to resist wicker.Too bad you didn't find anything at the antique fair. I find the prices are usually pretty steep at those places anyway.
Hope you have a great weekend.
Hugs, Rhondi

Your pictures are just beautiful! I definitely think photography is an art.
