Good use for tomthumbs...

Found one!



Getting ready for the craft show. I usually make dreamcatchers out of branches and antlers, but this morning I woke up and looked at that old tomthumb thats been hanging in my bedroom for months and a little lightbulb clicked on above my head.

I have an old curb I'm gonna do the same with. Its one way to keep a tomthumb out of a horse's mouth! What do you guys think?

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music

Very crafty, I like it! At my coach's place, she has a toilet paper holder in the outhouse made out of one those el cheapo curb bits. The top part is a horse's head then bit in it's mouth holding the tp roll. I need to take a pic of it, very unique, but a little strange going into the outhouse with a camera!

Very cool! I've seen tp holders made from them as well, seems a fitting use for a TT ;)

Now I wish I didn't pitch out my TT years ago... ):

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
