Over here, we have a very special birthday!
She got a special tattoo (it says Happy Birthday!) & special earrings for her birthday, because we love her.

So this one's for you.

Eye love Monsters!

If you don't feel like carving up your pumpkins but you want a halloween project, try making these little monsters!

We found the tutorial how to make them (& the photo) over at a blog called AIR-DRY-CLAY - aren't they cute?! I'm mean, SCARY!  They made these adorable monsters out of clay and then added different fasteners, like nuts, washers and grommets as EYES. What a creative and effective way of using fasteners - we love it.

I can't wait to make some - in fact, I'm off to go buy the clay NOW!

Spooky Skeleton Claw

SO SCARY!!!! It's a creepy skeleton hand coming after us!

(Halloween just got exciting.)

A guy named Dan, at one of my favorite websites, made a giant nut & bolt skeleton hand, and - the best part - he shows YOU how to make one too!

Here's Dan being attacked by the very hand made by his hands - oh the horror!

Take a look and then LOOK OUT!  It is truly terrific.

ARGH! It's alive and it's coming to get me!

WHAT FUN!!! If you would like to weld your own skeleton hand check out the tutorial at And give us a call if you don't have any carriage bolts laying around - we've got plenty!

Last thing, Dan also mentions that the hand makes a great coat rack - click here to see that.

Screwy Furniture

We found the most awesome furniture by CARLO CONTIN - all based on screws!

Check these out!

These tables are great because you can adjust the height.
See the threads.

Awesome stool, which is also adjustable. 
More threads.

The tripod stool.
I even like the colors.

Another adjustable stool.
And a smaller version of the first adjustable stool.

A second table which - believe it or not - is also adjustable.

This photo demonstrates how the same table can have so many height possibilities.


And combos - it's just unbelievable, right?

Carlo's version of the standard table.

And this lamp - SO GREAT!!!!!!!
I'm really impressed by this furniture. It makes a lot of sense using the screw threading to make it adjustable, which makes it really versatile furniture. And it is good looking too!
Carlo Contin is brilliant.

And again below is the link to the article where I discovered it. Have a read for more info.
