America's Next Top Model

Sanford is a bit of a supermodel when it comes to posing for the camera. I caught him in some good light and before I knew it had taken about 50 pictures. These are some of my favourites. The slightly blurred ones below best reflect his personality which is constant movement and expression.

Beneath all that hair is actually a very cute little set of eyes.
Not afraid of a serious pose.

Seashell button Bracelet.

What's this ? I hear you say. There is method to my madness I assure you. I have just had to become a font of all knowledge in all things jewellery related as part of my new job so I couldn't help but experiment and made some simple bracelets using seashell buttons, leather and a super clasp.

Blue version.
White version. I tripped over my dog and landed on my hip, shoulder and lastly hand. There's a small chip on one of the buttons as a result but it will be easy to replace.

Thrift Store Find - Craftsman Toolbox

Technically this was a swap meet find but it's in keeping with the thrift store mantra. Impressed by it's sturdiness, no plastic here and it's sense of history I parted with $5 and it was mine. I'm slightly obsessed with storage it must be said but I justified this purchase by appointing it as my new painting tool box. The inside was slightly grungy so it was given a clean and then the husband kindly painted it for me. I rather like the surprise of the purple interior. I hope you like it too.

Sturdy handle.

Purple interior, so shiny.
