I am in the process of equipping our 5th-wheel with everything we need, to make our getaways quick and easy. So I went to Target, browsed for more than an hour, and felt frustrated at the high prices/cheap quality that I find these days. I picked up a few small things, then headed to “GW Designs” (aka the Goodwill shop). There, I found some of the exact same items in fine condition, but for under a dollar. And other items, but of higher quality, for less than I could have purchased new. Also, some real treasures, including a cream pitcher and bowl from England and two Wedgwood bowls. So, pretty happy about that!
I’ve also thought that I need to get some red shoes (Keds?) to remind me: There’s No Place Like Home. I am always plotting photo adventures, driving miles away for “that perfect shot.” Today, I made myself stay home, explore my own backyard, shoot the little things around my house. The orchids at the top of this post were given to us by a friend, several years ago. Despite neglect, they keep coming back. I love their faces!
Wishing you a lovely day, and a warm feeling of Home.
