MIB3 - Brooklyn Filming

MIB3 has been filming in Brooklyn lately. They were in Red Hook near my studio earlier in the week. Yesterday afternoon Court Street and several of the side streets downtown were lined with vintage cars in preparation for filming that was scheduled to go throughout the night.

I thought the taxi's were great.

Especially the fares!

This little red sports car was my personal favorite. I love how the owner is lovingly doting on it making sure it's ready for its close up. And it was - every part was perfectly polished. Sure wish I had this car on a day like today!

Enjoy the long weekend - hope you get a chance to get out and play.

Nautical Wedding

Hot off the sewing machine:

It's fun to imaging the weddings that these ring bearer pillows will be attending.
With the navy and white color combo, I bet this one will be classic.

Get What You Want

I know the song says 'you can't always get what you want' but sometimes you can ... if you ask.

I'm open to customer's ideas and requests. It's fun to work on different color combinations and create one of a kind bags. Hearing their enthusiasm and excitement in the process is rewarding.

Blue instead of black? No problem! Ikat lining? Sure! Want it tomorrow? Why not! It's great to say YES!

Here's hoping you get what you want this weekend and beyond.

Spring Cleaning

I've been doing some spring cleaning in the studio lately. I'm in the 'use it' or 'get rid of it' mode.

I came across a piece of great upholstery fabric from my fabric stash and gave it the ultimatum. Then grabbed a pair of leather topped handles that had been hanging around, too.

The result?

It's the latest addition to Reiter8's recycled sail BIG tote collection. It's so roomy and has the capacity to hold everything for a day at the beach ... and then some!

Available here.
