I LOVE 3-day weekends!

I "slept in" today and the three of us decided we would play "tourist" and head to Lincoln, for the day. After stopping at Noodles & Co at the Haymarket District, we headed to three antique shops. Scored again. I found 17 vintage photographs on various subjects. The crazy thing was one bag had 13 photographs for just $7! That is unheard of! So, I picked out three of my favorites to share with you. If you click on the thumbnail, it should open in a new window, and you'll be able to print it out from there. At some point, Lucas and Sean left me to hunt down vintage goodies while they stopped in at a "game store" nearby. After we were done browsing, we went to Granite City Brewery for dinner, and then spent a few hours at Barnes & Noble. The March/April Issue of Rubberstampmadness looks very interesting. I especially like the section on Art Dolls. So, tomorrow, Sean gets to stay home for an extra day (because he works for the Government), and Lucas is off from school, also. Another day to spend some time together! The BIG news of the day is I learned how to write an HTML code for "how to convert a thumnail to a larger image." This is my first try, so I hope it works. Enjoy the new images! Don't forget to leave me a message if you create something with them!
