5 Fact Friday

In the interest of fun and sharing, I'm participating in a 5 Fact Friday hook-up at Reflections of You. Today is double inspriration day because at Shutter Sisters the one word prompt was "cameras."

Hence the photo! The Spartus was a clean out the foot locker moment with my in-laws years ago. The Canon AE-1 was my first SLR that was purchased in  Oklahoma where my husband was stationed. And the other camera---don't have a clue where I got that one. I have others--a couple I should try to sell. They aren't valuable, I just appreciate what they represent.


1. Surprise! I like old cameras! I'm not a collector, I just love thinking of the memories they hold.

2. There always is a stack of books next to the bed and on my Kindle. Just started: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society; also A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson. There's more, but I don't want to bore you.

3. Going to lunch with my bestfriend on Friday is a favorite thing. We try new restaurants, we talk, we laugh.

4.  I'm seriously considering an "organize my life" month.

5. It would not bother me if I never tasted beer again. But don't take my wine glass until I'm finished! Where's the chocolate?


  1. #4.... oh my...i could definitely use one of those.
    love your cameras... oh my.

    thanks for playing 5 Facts.

  2. I share your love of old cameras!! I treasure my Dad's old Agfa that he bought when he was stationed in Germany and that captured all my childhood pictures!! I have an old Brownie that I'm waiting to arrive from eBay!

  3. Fun list! I need an organize your life year . . .

  4. Do you and your friend go to lunch every week?! I love it!

  5. Gorgeous photo! I MIGHT be organized in a month but I wouldn't place any bets on that one.

  6. Those cameras...WHAT treasures!!!!

  7. Oh how I love those cameras! I need to do some serious "junkin'", which is known as antique shopping!
    Great post! You are more than welcome to help me organize my life!

  8. I love finding old cameras at flea markets, I'm up to 10 and think I better stop. And The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society is one of my favorite books. And I could use an organize my life month too.....feeling somewhat scattered these days.....

  9. I agree don't take away the wine glass :)

  10. yey....choc and wine a girl after my own heart love the cameras I have 2 old ones I must get them out...

  11. I LOVE your post! I feel exactly the same way about beer! Ick. But give me a glass of Merlot and some chocolate, and I'm all over it! I love the old cameras as well. I'd love to start collecting, but having new equipment is tough enough to pay for, lol!

  12. Great post and I love those cameras! I would like an old vintage typewriter :)
