Scavenger Hunt Sunday 01.29.12

In the midst of the dust flying during the great kitchen remodel, I managed to hunt down this week's items ... Smile, Stand alone, Rusty or Something old, Artificial, and Repeating pattern.  

Here are my interpretations ...

Doug promised Alex a while back that he'd buy him a new train car.  That exciting event happened on Saturday.  It is a Polar Express stock car (surprise!  Alex LOVES The Polar Express).  Since the doors open on both sides, I thought it would be cool to capture his excited face through the train car.  Just look at that smile!

I finally managed to find some time to make a light box by following Rosie's instructions.  Since one of my goals this year is to learn to sew, I chose to photograph a lone bobbin.
Tutorial Tuesday

This is an old button holer from a really old sewing machine that I no longer own.  Why I still have the button holer, I can't say.  Except that I needed something to photograph for this prompt.  :)

  1. Strike a Pose
  2. Footwear
  3. Hobby
  4. Shiny
  5. Color Me Green

Have a great week!

Great set and what fun you had at big huge labs. Yeah you made the lightbox too! I used to sew all the time but the hardest part for me learning to sew was getting the bobbin thread sorted in the machine!
