It's winter. I've said it before but I'll say it again: I'm not a cold weather person. Summer is my glory time - long days, lots of light and a photo frenzy. In the winter, it's much harder for me to get motivated, get outside and shoot something. On the very much plus side, I noticed last night that it wasn't dark as I drove home. That means the days are getting noticeably longer and light is coming back into our lives!
My image for you this week is my first-ever thrift/garage sale triumph. Oh yes, I've bought tons and tons of stuff at secondhand sources that I wear or use all the time. Fully half my wardrobe is thrift, if not more. But this one particular necklace pictured below I bought for $10, along with a bunch of other stuff at a garage sale, and sold this week on eBay for $160. Hooray! And now, linkage.
On the Web
Every week I save my favorite links from around the internet and present them here on Tuesday. Enjoy!
