camper scenes

I have been working on copper pendants with camper scenes hammered into them for the Holidays on the bench. I use my collection of hammers almost like you would use a brush to paint adding sky and land. The hammers I use most for this is a cobbler's hammer, old ball peen hammer, leather mallet and a sledge hammer.
The next steps will include more buffing and then a little tumbling, not too much for I don't want the pieces to be overly shiny.

Vintage travel trailers are an obsession of mine :)

Elly time in October

Look at that face. It is very hard to believe I had her for 3 weeks. I still have not totally unEllied the house with blocks, headbands, stuffies, crayons, legos and cheerios in every nook and cranny :) :) We developed a wonderful little routine that we all took part in and loved. Tameryn got to know what it was like in some respect to have a little sis' too, lol.
What is Grampa going to do with all his pretzels now ;) and his extra change....
