Bella Box


I'm well on my way to being ready for Silver Bella. I've discovered that the hard part is deciding what to take and what to leave home. I'm panicking at the thought of being in Omaha in the middle of a project and wishing I had something that is sitting back home in my studio. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only Bella suffering from that issue.


I thought it was only right that my Bella bounty travel in style so I took this vintage tool box and fixed it up right. I'm pretty sure that the original owner never envisioned his man box looking quite like this. Then I filled it with a few things that I just can't leave behind. Just a few. The rest are in a cardboard box sitting on the floor nearby.
