5 Random Friday Finds

Find No. 1


After much searching we have FINALLY found THE computer desk. I found this desk last week at our downtown Antique store. It is the perfect size, open and airy feeling, yet drawers for storage and the best part $89 as opposed to $900 for the first one I liked. 

Find No. 2


A few hours spent at the beach on Earth Day were heavenly.

Find No. 3



I found I love processing buildings and doors with the Waterlogue app.

Find No. 4


I am finding that Kim's new class Start to Finish - Round 2 is exactly what I am needing to ignite my photography. 

Find No. 5


I found an old Radio Shack TRS-80 computer at the Antique store last week Friday. Anybody remember working on one of these in high school?

What do you find this week?

Joining Kim for Friday Finds.

  2. Oh, I love that desk, and at $89 that IS a find all by itself! We spent a few hours, too short (but they always are aren't they) at the beach over the weekend. Love the waterlogue images...and I don't remember any computers when I was in school. I do remember the manual carriage return typewriters though. All the dings and almost in unison everyone hitting the carriage return handle at the same time, haha!

  5. Great style to the desk and love the beach view. The processing of the doors looks fun and I must try that :) I'm also doing Kim's S2F and have signed up for Be Still 52. As for computers, they'd only just started selling calculators when I left school!

  21. Beautiful desk, and you sure can't beat that price! I love your Waterlogued doors and windows. That makes me want to upload some images I already have to my iPad so I can try that on them.

  24. I love your computer desk find. I would have snatched that up too!

  25. Great find on that desk! Wow! Love it. Waterlogue works so well on architectural subjects. I'm finding that not all subjects lend themselves to it as easily and I end up app stacking to get the look I want. You did a great job! And that beach shot ... be still my heart! {No beach for me until July!}

  26. The desk is awesome! I think that's nearly unanimous! : ) And I do remember using those computers in school -- the big floppy disks...the amber screen (or was it that neon green?).

    You should do a hashtag for the IG pictures. Something like #5RFF... Maybe I'll go back and tag a few of mine from the week...I take so many more shots than I ever post.

  29. A really terrific find on the desk Sarah...I love it and the fact that is already has a history is wonderful...now you use it and make it your own...I just got back from my favorite Thrift Store...The Stock Exchange, cool name right...today lots of finds...other days not so much...but like you, I like the challenge of a great buy at a great price..
    I'm going to check out your app...I've not heard of it but I like what you did with it...
    Have a good weekend.
