Calliope's Photo Friday - Shoes

I love shoes! As a (slowly reducing) fat girl, shoes are my go to purchase. Shoes do not care if your thighs a thin enough for skinny jeans or if you arms are tones enough for sleeveless tops. Shoes love you no matter what!

These are my favorite dress shoes. I don't wear them often, as I only go out occasionally. They are not a special brand, but they were made by a boutique near my office.

Go check out everyone else at Calliope's Photo Friday! (So I'm late!)

Calliope's Photo Friday - Night

Once again, I'm participating in Calliope's Photo Friday. Go check out everyone else's submissions.

Obviously, I took this first picture a few months ago, but I love Christmas! This was also the first time I was able to really get the lights to pop. I also love the reflection of the lights on the wet street.

The second picture I took in Las vegas last fall. Again, a good camera really makes a difference. I would have never got this picture a couple of years ago.

Calliope's Photo Friday--Freezer Edition

This week the fab-o Calliope selected refrigerator/freezer as the Photo Friday Theme. My fridge is meh, typical black bottom freezer with lots of healthy stuff and a few unhealthy ones too. However, my freezer tells the most about me.

I have not one, but two stand alone freezers. I keep them stocked and organized. When I was a young single mom, I barely had enough money to eat from week to week let alone have anything extra. I fed myself and my oldest daughter on WIC coupons and about $5 a week. My parents were great and let me eat as many meals as I wanted with them, but I felt the need to be independent and take care of us. To me, a full freezer means security. It means I am taking care of my family. (Oh, I am also flying my freak flag a bit. Organized much?)

Calliope's Photo Friday

I decided to start participating in Calliope's Photo Friday. I have been reading Calliope's blog for years; she is bright, funny and funky. I don't know her, but I have been a cohort in her search for a labyrinth rug.

I love this mailbox. It is near my house and the owner's dress her up seasonally. I hope it makes you smile!

Thrifty Finds

Mr. Henry and I went thrifting last weekend. It was her first experience really scouring thrift stores for unusual items and good deals. My best deal of the day was a light fixture I found at the Habitat for Humanity for $5. It was dusty and an ugly shade of antique brass, but with a good scrub and coat of spray paint it looks fantastic! I purchased all of the items in the slide show for $30. It was a great day!
