Dad, Fish and Shoe Clips

I recently posted a pic of a pile of pipes (say that 3 times fast) on my Eccentricities blog. One of them made it into this frame just in time for Father's Day.

And below is a pick of the back of the frame. I love paper with the old timey advertisements.

And I hadn't done a chalkboard for a really long time. They are time consuming and kind of expensive to make considering the cost of boards and magnets.

I may have gotten the little fishy chalk holder in St. Joe.

This board is smaller than average and the "Made in Portugal" is wood burned into the back.

And this double switch plate is made with a shoe clip. Shoe clips are cool. Why did people stop using them? I feel the same way about false eyelashes.

And here's a preview of part of an ungrouted frame. I'll explain later this week why it's very special.

And the recipe box is an upcoming project. I think "good eats" says it all. There are still people who covet their hand written recipe cards and this will be a handy place to keep them.
