Some of my favourite blogs and online shops are of the clever craft variety. Never ceases to amaze me what can be done with a needle and thread, oh and a very skilled pair of hands! These feathered creations are the work of NY artist Anne Wood whose birds are one off or part of a very small flock.
Etsy is of course the source for incredible craft from small makers all around the world. These art dolls are the work of a young Belgain based histroy student. I love the reference to vaudeville style in her work. This maker is also part of the Cabinet of Curiosities etsy team, a collective of etsy sellers showing items best described as wonderful, whimsical and obscure.
