Paul McCartney and Me

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Remember when last week I mentioned that on Saturday I’m going to a flea market? Well, despite the really bad weather and the early wake-up call, the day ended on a super high note. Five minutes into our treasure hunt, I spotted this beauty (below).

Yup, a vintage camera totally working, in mint condition and very similar to the one that Paul McCartney and Sean Connery had back in the day. I’m just learning all the little things about it but I can’t wait to make it a part of my daily routine:) Btw: I keep on thinking about who had it before me and why they got rid of it….Would you ever consider going back to old fashoined cameras? What’s your latest flea market find? Do share...

P.S: Remember this?
P.P.S: And a pictorial guide to avoiding camera loss:)

What a find!

I notice you have my favorite cookbook of the moment... My Paris Kitchen. Do you love it too?

AhhhhHH!!!! Great job!

We found a Mid-Century Modern Thayer high chair for $20 last year. They go for $300 on ebay! Love flea markets!

Totally, Jill! I am so excited about this camera:) I read recently an article about vintage cameras and how wonderful they are. I can't wait to explore it more.

Very much so, little t. Rachel is an amazing cook and I use her cookbook weekly. What's your favourite recipe?
