A Nautical Mosaic

Today I want to share with you some beautiful photos I found on Flickr. Clockwise from top left: 1. Turning Tide 2. Colorful Boats 3. Jupiter Lighthouse 4. Beach Beauty

I just love the sea and spending time on the beach. I usually bring my watercolors with me and paint while I sit on my beach chair. I can spend hours just watching the seagulls and the waves coming to shore. It brings me such a sense of peace.
I was inspired to create this mosaic after I discovered that my Wayfarer Purse with  Seahorses was featured on Sunshine City Lassie's blog! Thanks Amy! The post feature, Nifty Nautical Finds: handbags, coin purses and wallets, includes some really lovely summer finds. Check it out! Also check out Amy's Etsy store, Sunshine City Lassie, for some really  unique jewelry and cool vintage finds.

Above is a shot of Millie, a wonderful coworker back in New York, modeling the Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchel. Wish I had her here for my next photo shoot!

My One Second of Fame

I had my one second of fame today! I was hoping for the 15 minutes promised by Andy Warhol but I can't complain. 

On March 27th I got a call from a producer of CBS Sunday Morning News letting me know that they are doing a feature on America's handmade economy and want to feature some of my bags on the set. I was quite excited. I dropped off some of my handbags at the studio that day. Posted above is my security entrance card. My first name is spelled wrong and my head is turned to the side because the producer asked me a question just as the security guard was taking the photo. I was allowed in the building with my profile shot so all was well. 

The CBS feature was broadcast nationally today. I was not at home and only had access to a small portable black and white TV with so so reception. Yes, rabbit ears. In the opening shot, CBS Sunday Morning News anchor Charles Osgood points to my handbags for about a second. he he  But I am still honored that they chose my bags from the th…
