I am, what you would call, a bargain shopper! I LOVE a sale – a smokin’ deal! I rarely ever pay full price for anything! I love garage sales, thrift stores flee markets, you name it! I’ve always been that way! My home is full of nice “bargains” and I’m actually a proud of that!
Well, I wanted to share my recent Smokin Deal of the year – by far – with all of you. I came across it randomly and knew I had to buy it a.s.a.p. So I did!
It’s a new Piano. A prop actually that I plan on using for photography! Her name is Miss Lucy! Yes, I named her after one of my favorite comedian’s of all time – Lucille Ball!
She will make an outstanding studio prop – especially for high school seniors! And here’s the best part… I paid a whopping $129.99 for her! I found her at the goodwill in Ahwatukee! Just happened to pop in there one afternoon. I’m always on the lookout for cool photo props… and well, I think I hit the jackpot! I have sort of a vision for my studio that I’ll be sharing in the Fall with you all. And let’s just say that Miss Lucy fits in perfectly! In fact i’d been thinking of how cool it would be to have an upright piano as a studio prop ever since I saw one of my Photovision DVD’s with photogrpaher Kia Bondurant!
She’s a little scratched and dusty. but this piano is beautiful! Plenty of room for someone to sit right up top! And I’m pretty sure I am going to paint her a BEAUTIFUL turquoise color!
So Meet Miss Lucy! She’s a bit out of tune, but she does play. She actually has a ragtime sound, and I know she’ll photograph quite nicely!
