my new vintage tripod




So, you're thinking, gee Linda, those are some pretty nice pics! Well, it's cuz I used my new tripod and put the camera on a timer so there would be no movement whatsoever! I am sooo pleased! Went to my neighbors yard sale over the weekend and bought this old vintage tripod that he bought at a flea market near San Francisco and sold it to me for $5.00. It's an old surveyor's tripod... made of beautiful wood and chrome... very solid. I love it!
Hey, I got me some can-can hollyhocks blooming over the Easter weekend! Aren't they stunning! I will be sure to harvest those seeds, as they are so rare! And more thrifty finds from the weekend to come!

Hi, again, Linda...got the hollyhock seeds in the mail today! I can't wait to get them planted & I'll be sure to show you the progress. Thanks SO much...I'm so excited! I never try things from seeds, but it sounds easy enough. You're a doll to share your seeds with us!

I like that nice tall tripod. Mine is a lot shorter (sometimes too short). They do work nicely though to get good pics.

That hollyhock is a beauty!

Awesome pics Linda! I'm always amazed at your green thumb too.

I would just leave the tripod up in the living room because it's so cool looking.
