5 Random Friday Finds

Find No. 1


I am not a hearts and flowers kind of girl. Last week Friday while everybody was posting photos of pink and red, flowers and candy. I posted a picture of cows. That's me, always going against the grain.

Find No.2


I did find a lovely Valentine present at an Antique Shop that I thanked Glen for when he got home. I am going to have so much fun photographing this beauty.

Find No. 3
Everybody has been posting pictures created with the new app. Waterlogue. I am not a jump on the bandwagon kind of person so I didn't really get too excited about it. UNTIL my friend Leon did a post on it on her blog which you can view here. She doesn't seem like a bandwagon person either so I listened to what she had to say about it. And I do really like the app.

Find No. 4


For my real Valentine's Day present, Glen got us tickets to a wine and cheese pairing at a nearby winery. Discovered some lovely new cheeses.


Find No. 5


Local, old fashion stores are the best. They graciously let me take some photos inside their store.

  1. Of course no pun intended on going against the grain, right? lol :)

    I love the typewriter, lucky girl...I wish I had my grandmothers old one...who would have known I would have wanted it at age 28? And...I think I may have to come to the other side with that new app...I read that they won't make it for droid - drats and double drats!!

  2. Gotta love old typewriters and cheese and wine :)
    I'm not a hearts and flowers girl either - Valentines is a non-event in our house...
    Great Random 5 and have a fab Friday!

  3. I love cows!!! Used to collect Mary's Moos....so pictures of cows in whatever setting are right up my alley! There's not a thing wrong with beating your own drum.....we are encouraging our grandchildren to do just that. Love that typewriter! Does it work?

  4. Hi :) Found u through nancy's blog. I love your cow pics!!! I grew up on a sheep ranch, and we usually always had a cow or two. There is a new picture app? I barely have time for IG :) I love the typewriter. I am not a wine person, but that sounds lovely!!! I LOVE old fashioned stores. They are definately a dying breed. There is one that my family frequents all the time, and i love to go there when I get out there. They even have sweets!!! (no, i am not British, I just tend to use British-like words..). Come and visit!

  23. Well your cows were just wonderful. They need "lovin" too.
    Cool old typewriter and I love what you did with that Watercolor App. - My phone is a basic, make a call type phone so no fancy camera or apps. on it.
    That cheese plate looked delicious and the store looked very interesting.

  25. Sarah - you really scored with wine/cheese AND the antique typewriter. Now I suppose I must look at Waterlogue - I'm already too hooked on photo editing apps. That store is fabulous!

  26. Love the cow shot!
    And I have a crush on that typewriter. I have been searching and searching for one .... but I don't want to spend an arm and a leg on one.
    I picked up the Waterlogue app .... haven't played with it yet. Looks great!

  32. A great find - my in laws were getting rid of a typewriter like that. It now sits in my basement waiting for me to take pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love both versions of your old typewriter - what a great photo prop! (Thanks for the link back to my blog!) Your Random Friday Finds is another post I look forward to each week. You're right, I'm not a jump on the bandwagon person, but I'm beginning to think I'd like to jump onto that one! By the way, I completely agree with you about local, old-fashioned stores. They're so much more interesting - and rewarding to browse through - than those enormous big-box chains.

  34. I'm not a hearts and flowers sort of gal, either - we really are kindred spirits! Lovely typewriter, an I really do need to check out waterlogue because it does look pretty cool!

  35. I had an old typewriter just like that when I was little - no idea where it came from though but it was so very heavy and the ink was really blotchy - just like the fonts I like these days! As always … great photos!

    A beautiful post today Sarah
