Well, another father daughter project in the bag today. This time with my middle daughter Fayth, Her choice of project was to build a new frame for a mirror she got for her birthday last year. The frame was knoccked over and the plastic broke but the mirror was intact.

We worked with a mixture of hand and some light power tools, Built the frame with half lap joints supported by through dowels. The only issue is that her and mom got to talking and decided to decorate it by gluing some sea shells to the frame. I thought no big deal, until her beaming face showed me just how many seashells and decorative rocks she had glued on. the smallish hanger we installed on the back will not support he weight. SO tonight at wal-mart we picked up some heavier duty options.

I absolutely love looking at these pictures of her working. Her face makes the most interesting expressions, they make me giggle a bit and wonder where she could possibly get those mannerisms from…

Anyhow . . . cheers all . . . It off for me to see if the 13 years old is still interested in the jewelery box we talked about…

My son and I have been collecting stones and shells all summer at Santa Cruz, and we’re planning to make something similar as a summer remembrance frame and photos.
