the present...

I mentioned that I had made a little something for the boy's birthday. Well, here it is...
I found the tin numbers at Industria in Fitzroy. They are old lawn bowls score numbers. Aren't they great. I wanted to use the big old petrol station numbers, but I could never find the exact ones I was after. So when I found these, I was ecstatic.
To make it, I just covered the back board of the frame with linen from the stash & mounted the numbers on with carpet tape.

The numbers are the date that we met. We met at a rock concert at the corner hotel.

So gorgeous - I bet he was exstatic

So relieved to read that was the date you met and not the score ... how appropriate that your name is "Kitty" which is the nick name for the "jack" (or white ball) in lawn bowls. Now all you need to do to complete the scenario is take him along to your local bowling club for a game of barefoot bowls ... you'll both love it and maybe you'll get to see more of those scoring numbers in the future. As you live in Melbourne I could be your coach. Check me out on http://my.sportingpulse.com/ranndystone

What a great gift. I love the idea and the execution of it.

Hey, ages ago you mentioned you might be able to help out if I ever needed to get a table at Movida. My partner and her friends were hoping to have dinner there or next door on Sunday night. Seems they are fully booked. I thought I would contact you in case you can help us out at all. If you can shoot me an email.
