Chinese Smarts

I remember my son bringing this home from their school
outing. I still like things like this because it's like having a little treasure box you open and inside
are little turtles with bobbing heads legs and tails.
It's like carrying a little friend with you , you don't have to worry about feeding or taking out.
Little boys used to carry crickets in boxes like these.

You wonder how this kind of work is done because the details are so tiny.
It takes a lot of patience to come up with something like this.
This little cutie came undone so I looked inside to see how they put it together
and now I know.
Little treasure boxes like this could be made with other things and for other occasions
like to say I Love You or Happy Birthday, or Merry Christmas.
I almost have an inkling to try it but first I would need to get the supplies for such an undertaking.
The Bichon Shitzu cross is called a Sichon I learned.
I won't tell you what I thought she was lol

Beau didn't mind giving up his treat for a sandwich.
Trick is to melt the heart of the consumer
so he gives it up.

Guess what? It works :)


Sorry. Not working sweet heart. Beau is busy staring.
Men are such idiots sometimes lol

Diana - the best things in life come in small packages as they say lol

Akelamalu I guess I'm just a big kid cause I love little treasures as well especially when they come from my kids.

Butterfly - I think dogs make the best friends. If you are by the ocean that's the best place to raise one pup.

I love that treasure box. The turtle is lovely--and so are the pups.
