A Question for You

by Kay~Kacey on 5/12/2011

I found this adorable photography prop while out antiquing…

old suitcase

I love it. The smaller size, the color, the old leather handle. But my question is…

initials on old suitcasearen’t the initials on upside down? (or alternatively, the Samsonite is upside down…but I don’t think that’s it!)

Lazy Fun Day

by Kay~Kacey on 5/2/2011

After a whirlwind of decluttering and having a bunch of stuff hauled off…we decided to reward ourselves with a day of Antiquing.

Pink Elephant Antique Mall

Went back to one of our favorite Antique Malls.

Pink ElephantThe Pink Elephant Antique Mall on interstate 55 in Illinois. Such fun.

twistee treat at Pink Elephant Antique MallWe had to have a Twistee Treat this trip…because it was open and selling ice cream. (SuperGuy slunk off and ate most of the ice cream cone while I was photographing…he doesn’t share well with others!)

I got some cute photography propos while we were browsing.

I’ve been looking for old cameras for photography props. We were out antiquing and found this old Brownie Hawkeye camera. Cute, huh? Well, I find one for first for $23…and I was going to get it…then SuperGuy find this one for $10 !! He wins!! I put my find back and we bought his. Well, it’s not his camera, it’s mine…but you know what I mean. Don’t you?

Now, why it’s sitting out in among the tomatoes, I’m not sure. But the light was really pretty there.

Men. Gotta love ’em.
