A Burt Watson Original

My husband Burt makes the most beautiful  beaded leather handbags.  We went to an art show and he found these faux bakelite handles.  I couldn't wait to see what he was going to create with them.  The handles are so outstanding that he decided he didn't want to compete with them by adding beads, instead he put his creative efforts into the stitching.   

You can see more of this unique work in Burt's Etsy Shop.

Shopping with Monty

I like to shop for bits of lace and fabric to use in my Nuno Felt projects.  A favorite place to look is The Attic in Coronado.  I took my Monty boy with me this time and we discovered this really cute little vintage poodle.  At first Monty was a bit leery of his new friend, but as you can see they discovered that they had much in common and were more alike than different.
