Went on a hike with family the other day, this is afterwards at a drink shop for refreshments. (I shoulda got a smoothie instead of what I got. ha). 
Parley can’t sit up on his own, but he can stay upright with support for a little bit. He’s getting stronger all the time! 6 mos old in a week!

Upcycling my jewelry box I got from my grandmother after she passed. I’ve had it for years and years and recently decided I was rather tired of how it looked, so went about looking into redoing it. Got some great ideas off of Pintrest.
The paint is just acrylic and it worked well! Dontcha think?
I’m not finished yet tho, still have to take those little jewelry beads and glue them onto the drawer knobs, since covering the crosses and putting on the paper as I did made the current knobs unusable. Plus, trying to tear them out would wreak the velvet inside and I didn’t want to have to replace that.
It’s been fun doing stuff like this! Makes me wana buy more old jewelry boxes and do the same to them! hehe.
