Metal Man


I was rummaging around last week and came across my dads toolbox. My dad passed away almost eight years ago and it used to hurt too much to go looking, but i actually had fun. Oh my goodness he was a messy man!! Bits of old everything electrical in this toolbox there was (he was an electrician), but i found a few bits and decided to make an atc out of the bits as a reminder of him every day when i'm in my craft room.
Also thought it only right i upload this atc as my blog is called bright eyes as thats what he used to call me :)
