New Urban Birdy Bird Series

The birdy birds have always been urban with their attitude stances and poses, but its time to expose a little more from which they came. I live in this wonderful little oasis in Baltimore city surrounded by trees and grass and lawn mowers and birdies and squirrels and even a fox that exposes himself every once in a while. But I am still very much a Baltimore native with the sound of periodic gun fire and helicopter's search lights, and need to also need to narrate the story of the true urban birdy. Introducing Mr Pigeon and the Black birds! All three will be at Crafty Bastards making their debut!

12hrs of Bag Making

I had such a great day..12 hours in my sweatshop making totes and messenger bags...shoulder strap bags, small little girl totes, cocktail totes, regular totes..all felt applique...all birdie bird! Getting ready for crafty bastards and squid fire in Philadelphia! much more to follow this week! Here is a sneak preview of what I made today!

The Apartment

In this new single life that I am leading, I seem to have found some solace in watching films like The Apartment and episodes of Mad Men when I can't seem to sleep at night. I really love Shirley MacLaine's hair in this film. I pretty much slept in and out while watching this last night since I have seen the entire film some years ago. I salute the women's movement every time I watch some happy I became a woman after the 1960's. But I still relish in the aesthetics of that period. Maybe being a kid during that time was the way to be. Oh well....contemplating my new look to be Shirley's in this film..what do you think? I could be the type of feminine I want to be in my dresses with my ta too and this hair cut.
