Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real

Pretty are the hotpads I made recently.  One set for the youth group fundraising auction, one set for the shop.

Happy is the commuter whose cool bike cost just $40.  Why take the bus (he could) when you could be stylin' vintage?

Funny is the boy who uses the camera as a mirror, checking his image after each photo.

And sweet to oblige me when I'm experimenting with the light and camera settings.

Real is the squash that finally fell off the ledge and broke.  I shrugged - the cold storage had worked well and this was the last squash. 

Actually, I spent quite a bit of time hacking the very very tough shell off this thing.  I felt triumphant about wrestling dinner.
