I don't do a lot of online shopping and around here I have a hard time finding antique, celluloide photo albums.
When I do find them, they are usually priced around $60 to $70.
Call me a tight-wad, but I have a hard time paying that much for something I'm going to tear apart.
The other day I got it into my head that I really, really wanted to use a photo album for my next journal.
And I'd already used the only one I had.
(Which I'm still having SO much fun playing in)
So when my brother called me the day before last to ask me to meet him for breakfast the next morning, I decided that afterward I would stop into an antique mall that I hadn't been into in awhile.
On the drive over I used my mighty brain waves and visualized a pretty, little photo album sitting in the store- in decent condition, just the right size and just the right price.
And low and behold, there it was sitting locked up in a cabinet waiting for me to find.
I sure love it when things work out!
