Vintage View & Something New

Meet my new buddy.

He doesn't have a name yet.

But I think he is definitely a boy.

(he has lots of dirt in his lens...)

See what I mean?

Love his dirty lens.  

I adore how he makes everything scream vintage.

These are just my first two trial shots of working with TTV...

(Through the Viewfinder)

on my new/old little boy.

He's about 70 years old or so and still has his charm and good looks.

Wouldn't you say so?

On a different note...

I'm glad I was inside when I took this picture of a neighbor's squirrel.

He really looks like he wants to attack me for taking his photograph...

I've been busy as a bee working on my brand new Etsy store (and dodging angry squirrels).

Stay tuned for my first ever giveaway.

It's going to be a good one with items from fellow Etsy shop owners,

and of course some of my new photos!!

SO in the meantime...  if you have a moment.

Won't you please stop by my new store, While Wandering, and have a look around?

I'm serving Starbucks and cupcakes to everyone who visits...  

Have a lovely Monday!!

Oh Bonnie. I didn't know you were starting a new venture. How exciting! As soon as I finish here, I'm going to check out your etsy store. I know it's going to be full of temptation! I have to tell you, I adore the pictures you've taken with this dirty lens. A lot of people are currently spending a lot of editing time using textures in order to achieve this very look! Wow. I know I've told you before, but I do truly love your blog. Okay ... heading on over to your store. Hugs ....

Bren said...

I agree with Frances, you've saved yourself editing time by using this wonderful old camera. What incredible pictures you've taken and made available in your shop. Congrats and may you prosper in this new endeavour.
