LOTS OF PICS AHEAD//stupid pictures taken while running errands

Today I tagged along with my mom and my sister to run some errands. I took the camera and we ended up making a pitstop at Joanne's to pick up some plastic animals. Unfortunately they didn't have as large of a selection as we would have liked but we still had fun.

Walking around outside whilst waiting for my sister to finish her voice lesson. 
This crazy glitter jacket was purchased yesterday when I went thrifting with a friend. It is so insanely sparkly and it feels like a Brillo pad. I love it.
Pasta paper.

Mom makes out with a sparkly octopus sticker
They have a lot of different 'Toobs' of plastic animals to choose from. They aren't all animal toobs though. We have a Jamestown Settlers toob.
Brontosauras vs Velociraptor round 3
Carol's pretty beaver tail
Okay I promise to get some real posting done soon. Sorry for bombarding you with dumb pictures.
But in the meantime,
why don't you check out the fun little project my mom and my sister and I are working on:
We figured it was about time to do something (useful?) with our little zoo of plastic pets.

    Mathew: Just because a picture is taken with a D40, doesn’t mean that it automatically comes out fantastic. Using a camera on it’s correct settings is what gives you a crisp, none pixelated image. DSLR’s used on the incorrect settings can come out as bad as a cheap point and shoot sometimes when given to someone who doesn’t know their stuff. A good lens always helps, especially one with image stabilization under dark light. It’s kind of daunting how people assume just because an image is taken with a £400 D40, the pictures should automatically come out fantastic. The real skill comes with the photographer, not the camera.
    Anyway, lovely post Jane. Always a pleasure to see your stunning outfits!

    Christine – I never made the assumption that $500+ camera = pristine pictures. Usually – actually… always – Jane’s pictures turn out fantastics. Seeing these just make me question why the sudden lack of quality? Was it the camera? Was it the way the picture was save? Etc…
    I came to the conclusion that the only reason the pictures turned out gritty was because they were saved under .gif rather than her usual .jpg

    hey man, trying to set an age limit on who should play with plastic animals is NONSENSE. plastic animals are for everyone! my husband and i drove across the country last year and we collected plastic animals along the way and displyed them on the dash of our vehicle. by the end we had a collection that spanned the entire country and mixed dinos with llamas and giraffes and zebras … great fun! it’s lovely to see relaxed pictures of you horsing around with your family. That skirt is beautiful. I would love a skirt like that. Keep being young and beautiful Jane!

  55. This is truly a Revolting Development as William Bendix use to say on TV in a different generation or two ago. Maybe three. I’m thinking seriously now about Mac and also about selling my stock.
