Mini camera

Hello again! It's the end of July - I cannot wait until the fall and winter months! I know during the summer, we vacation and do outdoor activities which means taking photos! 

Now, you can't take a photo with this little camera but it's mighty cute! 

This little vintage camera is made from a wooden block! I had picked up a bag of used kid's vintage blocks from Goodwill and picked one of the smaller ones because of its shape - it's only 1.75" x 1.5"!

The telescoping lense is a brass fixture off an old clock. I covered all sides with vintage-looking paper. 

And when you're looking through the view finder, you see your intended target. 

You gotta have chains and a hook to add some grunge and steampunk flavor. 

Don't forget your flashbulb! 

It sits up on a little wire stand so your shot is steady and crystal clear! 

I love doing miniatures - they're challenging at times and it's fun to try to figure out how to make certain things work on such a small scale. I wanna make more! 

I'm entering this at SanDee and Amelie's
