Zooming inLook at the pretty photography and layout. They even managed to squeeze in my rustic porch cam shot of my first Pyrex love. It's amazing what a little cropping can do. I wish I could do that to my bottom!
Well, I had half-jokingly suggested in my last post that I was hoping to find some Mexican Day of the Dead folk art at the ginormous Cabbagetown festival (which included numerous yard sales). Look what I bought! It's a pretty luminario. This tin church includes a candleholder tucked inside. It was new and had an original price tag on it of $40.00. I got it for $8.00. Happy Erin.

This was my best deal of the day: a huge love banner that cost $2.00. I'm going to hang it on my classroom door in February. I bought it in the early afternoon. I'm surprised that nobody else liked it well enough for such a low price.
