Car Booting!

Finally, I have got round to taking pics of all my camera finds at car boot sales recently! The most I paid was £2.50 and that was for the Helina 35X..I reckon that's pretty good going :) The cheapest was free, and that's the Polaroid Image came with a lot of fancy equipment and was being used by the police until it came to me (legally of course!).

I have yet to try any of them out apart from the Fuji instax mini 7. This little delight was found by my Dad (he's awesome and shares my love for collecting cameras!) for £2 and it hadn't even been opened, there were still batteries and more excitingly, a film! Unfortunately, it went out of date in 2003 so only a couple of the pics have come out, but it's still fun and gives a slightly different effect to my newer instax :)

The Polaroid 10 is very bizzare, you have to pull a ring to get the picture out but if I find any film, I'll have a go!

I really need to get some film and try some of these out..I'll let you know how it goes :)

I'm hopefully going to another car boot Sunday, although I'm not sure I have room for any more cameras!

Guardian Angel Day

To try and get us all feeling a bit better about ourselves and showing how much we support one another, our welfare team came up with Guardian Angel Day.

We signed up our names, got put into a lucky dip and each of us was given another person to be their Guardian Angel for the day. Basically, we've just do something nice for that person, whether it's make them tea, give them a chocolate bar or do some of their work for them!

I decided (of course!) to make my person a cupcake with a little banner saying 'You're Fab!' I then found some instax photos from an out of date film that I got at a car boot recently. Some of the pics didn't come out, but rather than throw away, I made a little Guardian Angel photo/card to go with the cupcake :)

I think everyone finds the day a little cheesy but we're all secretly excited to give and receive Guardian Angel fun!

P.s big camera post coming soon with all my recent car boot finds..I'm running out of room for them!
