{My Candy Store}



I'm giddy. Today I'm experimenting with my two lovely b-day present from Scott. I giggled out loud when I used the Polaroid. I love the feel and sound of it--loud and clunky, and with a little present that pops (poops?) out. Who could ask for more? I bought one pack of film (16.99 for 10 sheets-ouch) and quickly went through it. Now that I know it works I will need to conserve my film. Maybe a picture a day?
The other camera is a Holga. I know I already have one, but this a fancy, schmancy, blinged-out Holga. I think I added too many features, because now the shutter release is near impossible to operate, but still, it's pretty sweet. Yay for birthdays and fun new cameras!

BTW, my favorite Polaroid blog is, www.mypolaroidblog.blogspot.com. Jen was the inspiration behind the purchase. I worship her from afar.

I am super jealous of your "candy" That polaroid looks way different from mine. It looks way cooler. I can't wait for you to post some pics!

As for hanging out our next two Fridays are a no go, but pretty much through the week and Saturday's look okay..

(thus far.. I mean Lindsey let's be honest, I am pretty important.. who knows what I will be doing.. sky diving.. flying to France... watching reality t.v... my life is one to be jealous of really.)

Yeah, I have read a lot of Thomas Hardy. I think all but 1 or 2. I really like Tess too, but Far From the Madding Crowd is my favorite. I had to read it for Academic Decathalon so I've read it probably 10+ times. I can quote word for word a lot of passages. I'm weird like that. So it holds a special place in my heart. But yeah, I am excited to read "Brooklyn" and I will have to get the "Book Thief" one as well. I REALLY want a Amazon Kindle. Maybe if I'm good Santa will bring me one.

Oooh I love polas! I think Andrew is getting me a Holga for our anniversary- I've been so inspired by your photographs I had to try it out! You'll have to give me some pointers!

I can't believe polaroids are still around! I remember my mom getting one way back when... We thought it was the coolest thing ever!! I could hardly wait for the picture to show up on the paper...
