Chillingworth

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Mr. Chillingworth, the owl. He is one of the many Ann Wood's amazing crafty inspirations. He was constructed out of an antique bodice shown below. I desire (so much) right now to hold him and examine every stitch, every fold and every tiny piece of cloth that went into it. He is stunning. Do you agree?


“A striking evidence of man’s faculty of transforming himself into a devil, if he will only, for a reasonable space of time, undertake a devil’s office.”

His eyes are amazing. In my opinion these buttons reflect an expression. An expression of wickedness.
Who knew there was so much wickedness hidden in this gorgeous bodice. Thank you Bess for this great find.

Do you feel being hypnotized by this owl?

Your Owl is fantastic! Thank You for stopping by my blog, I love to have new artists stop by. It's funny, I was just trying to apply the template that you have to my blog, but I would have lost have my stuff! I'm not that great at switching them out.
