Made by You Monday 8/2/10

This is actually something I made a long time ago, so long ago it falls into the "handmade vintage" category :)

The 'camera' has little slides of Washington State tourist spots & you can still click the black button & view them.
Plastic 'camera'
black stone bead
found helicopter charm
vintage earring
trolley car charm
safety pins

A shot of how the pin works. I like the primitive appeal of using safety pins as clasps & the helicopter reminds me of journalists, the trolley is about travel & the other elements point to historic documentation, travel, other cultures & world views.

Check out other projects & gift ideas, maybe even add your own, on Skip to My Lou!
