Museum of Wonder

The first time I heard about Butch Anthony was on one of our favorite television shows, American Pickers.  We love Mike and Frank cause they seem like a couple of regular guys having fun with a lot of humor thrown in, entertaining regular folks like us.  Laughing feels so good, doesn't it?

A folk artist from Alabama, Butch has a wonderful knack for turning junk into art.  They say he's part mad scientist, part genius.  I love the word he made up: intertwangled.  Now there's a word for ya!  Intertwangled most accurately describes his work for it's made up of found, discarded objects and turned into treasures.  I fully enjoy listening to Anthony's southern twang and watching his laid-back manner.  See one of his interviews on YouTube here.  Butch's work is such an inspiration and what a delightful character he is!  Great job, BA, we love ya, from Lisa and Mike in good ol' sunny California.  Keep up the good work!  xo

Butch Anthony speaking: Hey y'all, welcome to my Museum of Wonder Shop. I like to take found objects and turn them into art.
