The past few weeks have been a testing time for me in more ways than one. Family and personal issues as well as very stress related work problems have meant that creating and completing present pieces of work has just not been possible but as we all know times like these are sent to test us and hopefully in a few months or this time next year i shall look back at this post as a personal reminder of the problems that faced me and the way i overcame them.
I do intend completing all the pieces i currently have on the go but it will just take a little longer as its difficult to concentrate with so many issues on ones mind.
I would also just like to thank my new followers for joining my blog and following my work, please don't see this post as a negative outlook! i still have many ideas and new things i wish to share with everyone and hopefully in the not so distant future everything will return back to normal.
Have a great week everyone   Tony.

Firstly i do apologise for such a short post, however i wanted to show an update of how the vanity box is looking now.

I still need to complete the accessories inside, bristles on the hairbrush and finding something suitable for the hand mirror, once i have completed this i will take a shot of all the accessories outside the box.
Have a great week everyone.  Tony.

The ladies vanity box is moving along nicely and without to many hitches. This week i have managed to construct and fit the lid .

The next phase is to line the inside of the lid with the same antique red leather that i have used to line the draws.
I also need to line the bottom draw and complete the accessories that will be kept in there, the leather was not an easy choice as it was difficult to cut the holes out so the accessories would sit inside right but the end result i will let you decide!
Have a great week everyone   Tony.
