Garage Sale Finds

I hope you all had a great weekend! I sure did! It was nice & sunny most all weekend. We went out on our boat everyday and enjoyed the lake. Saturday morning my 20 yr old daughter and I ventured out to about 5 garage sales. We didn't have much luck, but we didn't come home empty handed. I bought these 2 vases which match my living room great and for $6...they were a bargain. The original price tags were still on them at $15 for the small one & $25 for the larger one.

My daughter found a new Panama Jack cowboy hat for $3.

Doesn't she look cute in her new hat?!

Did you hear that Rhoda from Southern Hospitality just started hosting every Monday a "Show your Garage Sale Finds" linky party. So go check out what everybody found this weekend.

By the way, my new dining room chairs arrived!! I LOVE THEM!!! Come back tomorrow (tuesday) and I'll show you pics.

Have a great week!

The vases are neat and Xanti would love that hat!!

I saw your comment on the photo blog and just now getting around to answering. I love the canon rebel. It's an ongoing learning process. Xanti went to a summer intensive photography session, in Montana, last summer. She's been helpful with ideas and I have a friend who is a wonderful help too. If you have classes available that's a good idea.

We are so far up in the country, it isn't practical for me to take classes because of the drive, so I am basically self taught. Reading the manual and online sites are great learning tools.

I added another lens over the weekend and have one coming by ups today. That's the thing with these cameras, you want to keep adding "gadgets". The camera will come with a kit lens. I used it several months when I was first learning, then added another lens to the collection. That was about a year ago. I thought it was time to add another one and ended up adding two. I recently learned the 50mm lens is a great lens to carry around and it's wonderful for low light shooting. I'm going to shoot my Foodie Friday post with the 50mm lens, if you'd like to have a look. That will publish Thursday evening....that is if I get the cooking done!

To answer your question, I find the Canon Rebel very easy to use.
