Just testing the waters...

Finally switched over to the new blog editor and I must say there is a great improvement  -- at this end anyway.  Also I'm so happy it's cooler here now.  I might actually get a few things done.  I may even hit the road and take more pics with my new camera.

Cool blues and little flowers

Still too hot to do much of anything beyond playing with my camera. Here's a little something I picked up at the thrift store around the corner:

And then a very tiny something which belonged to my aunt as a child -- this is a perfume bottle which stands approximately 1.5" tall. I'd taken some pictures of it earlier and was then mortified to see that my camera was so very very good that the thing was covered with a thick layer of dust. Here it is after it's bath all clean and shiny:

Too too too hot

It's too hot to do anything -- one of the downfalls of living in an attic space.... I have gotten a few more photos from Lewis Ginter processed and I have given some serious thought to a few things I might do when the weather cools down a bit. Like this fixer-upper for a start... major cracking in the paint job and she needs a new wig. I'll probably change her costume as well. I know to some she might look like she's in horrible condition but actually, she's not and I'm still quite proud of the fact I only paid $22 for her. I'll be quite satisfied if I can make her look brand new!
