butterfly in primary colors with a blue background. It all started in England. Where the original name for what we now know to be a butterfly was flutterby or was it vice versa…? Some called it a spoonerism, a breakdown on the passing of the word(kinda like I caught one this big) and many have used it as a more descriptive way in saying “butterfly”. I wonder if it happened on a day like today.  My NaNa always use to say, Lawrence do you know where the most beautifullllllllll women in the World are from? I’d say no NaNa. My Mom’s Mom would say County Cork Ireland and that’s where I’m from. I would say you have to be from there because you are beautiful too!! So from my NaNa and Me Happy St Patrick’s Day!!!

Tooled leather dog collar was supposed to be 2″ longer and whoops! It was wet so I just reduced the size and went to town with a old school tandy design. Kinda blew my schedule for the day as if I’m not far enough behind now. However if I really looked at it like that I wouldn’t be having as much fun as I am. When I’m not having fun my work doesn’t look the way it could. We, I cannot have that! So this is the outcome of a the day. I actually applied the finish and even went against what I usually do, no color yet… on this “tooled leather dog collar”.
