Vintage Camera

On a visit to family we all took in a few estate sales. And really had a good morning, finding all sorts of treasures. It's always and adventure being in a new city, seeing what it has to offer. At one of the sales (which was handled professionally, meaning the prices were way too high) we did find a few items. I found some crystals for one of my chandies, and a few other goodies. And my husband found something he loves too. This old camera. He even got the woman in charge to mark it down a bit for him. He has a few old cameras lying around the house, which may go into a cabinet in the office eventually being grouped together. But this one was so pretty we wanted it out in the living room. It reminds me of a nice visit with family, and of my husband. Seeing it makes me smile. And that's not bad for $10 bucks. I'm linking over toMissy at My Cottage Charm while you're there, check out her amazing cupcakes Also linking to The Shabby Chic Cottage Transformation Thursday

  8. That camera is really fun...what a great piece to decorate with. Cute blog!

  9. Thanks to everyone for the nice comments on the camera! My husband has only a couple of things he fancies, and vintage cameras are one of them. He recently purchased an interesting beach painting from a thrift shop, he's an artist himself and does very well, however this one caught his eye as he's from a beach community, born and raised two minutes from the ocean here in sunny california! All of your nice comments are greatly appreciated! Thanks again, tami

  10. love that camera!! what a fantastic piece to have.

  11. Hey Tami! Me again! Just wanted to thank you for the sweet comment on my last post. It's funny how these posts come together - by the seat of our pants sometimes - isn't it? lol! I just needed more white in the kitchen in preparation for the darker days, and plunked those pitchers up on the pie safe to see how they looked. Just like you setting that camera out where you just came together in an instant. :) I so treasure your comments. It helps confirm my feeble attempts at decorating! lol!

    Hugs! xoxo laurie
