Wow, where did June go? I just cannot believe that the month has almost passed me by. July will be a busy month as well and I will try to be better about stopping in to say hi. For now, here are a few of the many toppers I have been working on...
I found some pretty amazing things while searching Etsy for the perfect Father's day gift. I thought I would share a few of my finds with you!
First up is TheWren. I also featured
one of their bags in my Mother's Day picks. I really love this shop!
This is such a cool and unusual bag!
The making process is quite long: first the unused paper bag is
opened and the various paper layers are separated. Then the top and
third layers of paper are fused and bonded with black cotton to make the
paper strong and the bag EXTREMELY DURABLE. Once this has been done the
material can be treated as a fabric and the pattern drawn, cut and the
Next is a great gift for any beer loving
has made these glasses from recycled beer bottles. I think these are
such a wonderful and unique gift idea. They can be made from any bottle
with a painted label, even pop bottles for those that don't drink beer!
After cleaning, the bottle is heated to 1,100 degrees. When the glass begins to move, a special tool called a jack is used to open the narrow
bottleneck into a cylinder. Once the bottle is in its final shape it is
then placed back into an annealing oven to cool for 30
hours, to assure no stress fractures form in the cup.
The glasses are safe to drink from and are dishwasher safe.
Next is an AWESOME wallet/cardholder from officeofminordetails. I have used a men's long, bi-fold leather wallet for years. I have never liked women's wallets, they are too big and bulky. I think that any man that doesn't like a big wallet, would love this wallet! These wallets fit neatly
in the pocket and you would hardly know they were there.
This is a hand cut, folded, punched and stitched leather
wallet/cardholder, crafted from a single piece of beautifully soft New
Zealand leather. This wallet is made with a unique 3D pattern which
means is pre-formed to take your cards and money with having to force
them in. They are double saddle stitched with 1mm waxed polyester
Lastly, this little cutie is from 123smile. These made me grin and any guy that grew up playing with Lego's would LOVE these! Any dad would love to feel like a kid again with grown up 2GB Memory Card.
