Hello my friends,
I have been tweaking my mantel-scape off and on for weeks now.
I can't say I'm completely happy with it, but I'm not doing another thing to it, so it will have to do.
I wanted it to feature my husband and mine "first" cameras.
The left one is my husbands, it's a Kodak Brownie Fiesta.
It was introduced in 1962 and cost $5.95.
Mine is a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye and it was introduced in 1949 and cost $5.00.
Mine was lost in a fire back in 1969, and I found this one recently at an Antique Mall here in Winnipeg.
I love the way the faux flowers and leaves bring the reds and the oranges into my living room.
I made the Autumn sign last year, the fan I found for free last year at the city's fall cleanup and the pumpkins and the white partridge I have collected over the last few years.
I have found them all of them on sale at 75% off at our local Real Canadian Superstore.
The tiny brown partridge I found in Idaho a couple of years ago.
I am not going to be around for the next two weeks, as
I am off to see my oldest daughter and her family.
And, I am not taking my computer with me.
But, I will be back and I will visit all of my old and new friends upon my return.
Have a wonderful week!
