... and had nothing to do with...
Our Daily Challenge - Mar 4, 2012 - "Stacks"
... but that's OK, as it gave direction to the otherwise vague the pastel/pale challenges.
I was pretty much at a loss what to do until late afternoon, when I decided to see if I could pick up some pale/pastel fabric at the fabric store since I tend to prefer the darker tones and that's pretty much all I have save white and pink (for Valentine's day.)
While I was there, I found this lovely blue&white check fleece (love fleece - it hangs nicely, doesn't cause glare, and tents to resist wrinkling.) Anyway, with fabric in hand, I started thinking I'd go with an "It's a Boy!" baby theme. Alas, on returning home, I realized son's baby stuff is in a box or two (or ten) and not at all accessible.
So I rummaged through the puppy bin (Yes, I have one. Yes, it is accessible. Stop laughing.) and came up with some pastel toys.
(Hint: rubber bands work wonders to hold woolie toys together when you want to stack them and have them stay stacked!)
For whatever reason, the boys got a kick out of this shoot, and a good time was had by all.
Obligatory Monday Mischief...
