And just as I was about to...

whine about my camera on my post for the day, one of my favorite bloggers walked into my shop with PEACH PIE!!!!!   Wow!  Steve from Urban Cottage brought us a pie and stayed for a lovely visit. (a little ashamed of the unchanged bunny boxes. o well).  Not only did he bring Petsi pie,(most amazing pie in town) but he showed me how to add my contact info on my blog and I got to ask him questions I'd been wishing for months to ask him.  It completely made our day.  The pie was stellar, Steve.  Thanks again!


The little heart cut-outs made a sweet shamrock in the middle. yummmmmmm.


So about my whining.  As some of you may know, my Canon dived into a flower bucket on Saturday. I was able to save the little card and download the photos on it, but revival is a lost cause.

So I'm looking to buy a new camera and I'm reaching out everyone!  I've received two great tips so far.  Any suggestions for under 500.00?  Someone suggested a Canon Power Shot G12.  It received good reviews, but no lense changes.    I'm kind of tech illiterate so too many bells and whistles will muck me up.

And finally, here are the rehearsal dinner arrangements from last week.



I'll be waiting like a nervous girlfriend for comments!

It was great to meet you, see all the flowers, the rabbits and share a little about our love for bagging groceries. I wish every store gave such a warm welcome! The people at Home Depot weren't as excited to see me although I didn't take a pie either.

See you again sometime soon!

I'm so jealous!!!! Oh and your bouquets are super lovely or they would be if I wasn't so jealous!

I have a Canon Power Shot SD1300. It takes a nice picture, no trouble.

pie envy. right there. i've got a nikon d90 although it's completely wasted on me, all i do is point and shoot but i live in hope that one day i'll actually work out how to use it...

Thanks, Lotte. I've ordered a Canon Power Shot G12. Not complicated and as Erin suggested, I can easily carry it in my purse with not much prep to shoot.
Jaime at Monkey Flower Group has a Nikon too. For all my inquiries, Nikon and Canon came up tops. It's great to know you take those beautiful photos without doing anything special.
