Insegne Italiane (Italian signs)
Rita Reade, la mia bella amica, is a talented and hard working Sicilian woman who creates these lovely signs "fatto la mano" (by her own hand). She literally cuts the wood and transfers the scripted phrases herself.
Thank you for supporting creative women whose products are made by us in the United States not in China or India by individuals who have never been to the places that inspire our creativity.

Dog dishes from wine crates....
As the owner at one time of three Labrador retrievers, I am always looking for lovely but practical items for our home. The dog dishes I have created are just that.
I make each item individually with the care and concern deserved by your dog. Each crate is treated with Briwax, a natural product made from beeswax, and then sealed with several applications of polyurethane to protect the wood. I recommend using the dishes for food unless you can maintain
the wood over time as a result of water exposure. Consider the pedestal cut crystal bowls which I regularly find at second hand shops for your dog’s water - a handsome combination. I only have a limited supply of these and will not be making more at this time.
