Autumn Sunshine

What a lovely day it has been weather wise here today, warm sunshine, I loved it.  I loved it so much I went into the park with my camera today:

I took some photos but not straightforward photos, I had a clever optical gizmo with me (a £1.50 charity shop buy)
It's one of those mirrors for putting on the backs of caravans and vehicles like it.
It gives a great wide angle effect which is fun to combine with the view you get from a normal camera lens.

You can have quite a bit of fun with one of these, they look good with people shots too.

This was kind of my craft today but I also have been sorting out my pen storage.  I had all my colour pens (& my kids colouring pens too) all thrown in a drawer like this:

So have been sorting them into categories in these:
(Trays £1 each, you've guessed it, charity shop!)

It is much easier to select the right type now.

Thanks for popping by and for any comments,
See you tomorrow,

Love the mirror optical effect thingy!! How clever :-)

I need to organise lots of pens and things for the class I'm teaching - I was thinking about cutlery trays...

Thanks for your comments. I'm liking my new pen storage but I think wooden cutlery trays may be even better. I'm finding the smaller pens can slip though the holes of these metal ones. Great for separating types though.
