My toaster says "Hi!" to your toaster

Absolute Vanilla posted gorgeous shots of reflections in her toaster yesterday.
My toaster is a rather friendly puppy dog-ish toaster and wanted to say hi to the beautiful Vanilla floral toaster.
So here he is.

I must say, through this process I realized my toaster is a bit worn (I should stop pretending it is a toaster oven, and sticking slices of pizza in it), and taking pictures of reflections in toasters (without getting yourself in them, without getting other stuff you don't want in them, doing it in such a way that anything actually looks good) is a lot harder than I had imagined. I already knew Vanilla was a great photographer, but now I see her greatness is even greater than I had realized.

My photos= works of silliness, hers= works of art.

These are brilliant, Taffiny! I love them - they're so playful and colourful. My toaster says hi right back and is delighted to be associated with your toaster - perhaps they could go to the seaside together - yours armed with bucket and spade, mine gazing at the waves :-)
Thank you for the lovely and generous tribute! xx

:) Oh, now I am taken by visions of toasters merrily playing at seaside. They just must remember to dry themselves off before plugging in to get all toasty.

I will tell my toaster that your toaster says hi back, he will be so pleased.
(I best not mention the seaside to him though, or he will insist on going along with us next summer. Which would support Bob's theory too strongly, that I am always trying to pack up our entire house and take it with us).

Well, there is nothing quite like taking along the toaster and the kitchen sink on holiday. I think it's a perfectly feasible notion and one which my toaster supports wholeheartedly ;-) I can just see our two toasters frolicking at the water's edge - though I do worry about then getting rusty before their time...

This is perfect for the children's book brewing in my mind after reading Vanilla's post. Or should I say it's toasting in my mind?

If you still want to be NaNoWriMo buddies, here's where to find me:

Yes, you are right, best they don't go swimming, it's pleasant enough to just look at the sea.

I took the link, and clicked add, so we should be buddies now. :)
