Not so long ago there was a celebration of marriage to my significant other, going on 8 years. My wife wanted a nice necklace with the initials of our two boys. She had a few images and ideas that she floated my way and then left it up to me to make it happen.
I have a friend that I met a long while back who is now pushing her way in life one fine crafted piece of metal at a time. She dose really good work and has been very kind in giving away her secrets to me in the ways of making it on your own. I sent the ideas for a necklace over to her and we worked out a few details and then she made it happen!
So AWESOME. Now it is nothing fancy, just a few disks with the first letters of our boys and my wife's birth stone but it is always really cool to have something that someone actually made with their own hands. My wife loves it and has not taken it off since I put it on her a few months ago.
If you need any gift ideas or have an idea for some well crafted jewelry hit up Christine over at Chocolate and Steel and if you are nice she will take care of you for sure.... Check out her shop and blog and even a web site.
And if you are reading this Christine, thank you again for the awesome piece!

So I have been a big fan of Mr. Olch and his neckwear for quite a few years now. It is fun to see how much brands and people grow from the first simple discovery several years ago to today....
I hope that some day I will have something of interest to look back on myself. But this kid definitely made me rethink neckwear on more of a daily basis for sure. And his bow-ties are on point.
There are a few nice pics of the man, his abode, and a simple Q&A over here.
Check it out. And don't forget the ACL for this heads up.

So the past few post have been focused on photography and those who play and play very well...
I would like to say that this form of art and expression is one that I am activly persuing myself but alas I am not I just have an interest to dabble and a great respect for those that are making it happen with their light capturing boxes....
I have stumbled upon yet another who's work just is amazing. Mr Gareman.
Check out his work here.

In this world of blogs and posting of personal interest it is always fun to get the inside look at how people live the lifestyle that they share with us on the old web.
There is a nice little post up that gives the inside look at Michael Williams abode, the man behind A Continuous Lean. Check it out here. I love this kind of stuff I hope more out there share with us the inside look.
