New Rustica

I have finally gotten around to the new decoupage rustica line... here are some boxes and purses I  am working on. All are wood, the photos are mine and all is covered in amber shellac. I will also be working on a line of necklaces and keychains...

Would you dare on the first day of spring ?

Happy spring equinox ! There are some buds on the trees, the mockingbirds are singing their hearts out and it was snowing this morning. Oh well. But you can wear a bit of spring on your head ! Some of these cool hats are just what is needed to bring some warm feelings into your life, and hopefully some warm compliments.

Before the age of SUV there were another giant dinosaur prowling Brooklyn. Some Cadillacs still remain.

Bitchin' Barracuda

Now that I finally figured out how to Mobile Blog I thought it would be an interesting idea to
show case the vintage and rustic in my neighbhorhood. 
And this beauty is one of my favorite cars ! It's a Plymouth Barracuda fast back circa early 1960's. You can tell it was one of the first muscle cars, but still has some of those 1950's elements to it.
Everyday I see this car and drool. I imagine Lux Interior (RIP) driving around in it.  I'll get some good interior shot and show you what I mean.
