He always had a love of wood and a lot of that has rubbed off on me, I just can't get enough of the smell sometimes, wierd I know,lol
As a young child I spent many weekends and early evenings in my dad's workshop and I will always remember the little box of tricks, as he called it, on the shelf.
To this day I have no idea where it disappeared too...after he passed away 3 yrs ago I had hoped I would find it among his belongings, but I never did.
So this box I have made as a tribute to my dad.....perfect for my design team piece for Altered Eclectics Challenge this month.
I stamped some images on the lid as well as adding the embellishment.
Although the contents of this box is not exactly what my dad kept in his, I do know he had stamps, shells and a few tickets and passport style photos of some of his friends from years gone by, a few buckles, which came from mine and my sister's sandals. Also a collar stud that was his fathers...funny what memories stay with you...just wish I could have found his little box....
Hope to see you over at the challenge blog...as always it is Anything Goes, so long as your entry is Altered Art....the challenge is here....Altered Eclectics Challenge
