I'm Back

I'm back from my 10 day trip to Thailand!  My partner and I spent our time in Bangkok exploring this bustling city. We used public transportation and/or walked to all our destinations from our hotel. Bangkok is not an easy walking city so I would advise using alot of caution especially when crossing streets. We rode the sky train, took boats along the Chao Phraya River and canals, walked along the bustling major streets and  small back streets using our map or just our common sense to guide us. I'm sure we often walked where few tourists ventured.  My partner encouraged me to take these adventurous walks and I'm glad he did. I feel I got a real sense of life in Bangkok. Time did not permit us to travel more throughout Thailand as we had planned. I guess we'll just have to take another trip in the near future!

The Pesky Cat's Day Dream

Katzenhohle by Dornroeschen Filzunikate I recently came across this incredible cat bed made by German artist Dornroeschen Filzunikate. This beautiful piece of functional art called a Katzenhohle , cat cave, is handmade of felted wool. It's definitely the most unique cat bed I have ever seen. It would bring a bit of nature into my urban NYC home. I think my Anni would love a cat cave although her favorite spots right now are the pillow behind my head in bed, a straw basket that was meant to store magazines and a storage box made from fabric that becomes a hammock when she sleeps in it. My sweet Anni FOX 5 Update : A while back I wrote a post about a story that Fox 5 news was doing on Etsy and the handmade market. I was interviewed in my studio as part of the feature. An Etsy press agent recently informed me that the story aired April 15th and he also missed it. He said he is trying to get a copy of it from the studio. I'll be sure to post a link to it when it becomes ava

Spring is Here!

To celebrate the spring equinox I decided to take the entire day off from working in the studio. OK, I confess I did sew one button onto an applique, but that's it! The rest of the day was spent bike riding, watching waves and smelling spring flowers wafting through the air. The weather was absolutely beautiful with temperatures in the mid 70's. No jacket required. Just a t-shirt and sunglasses. Hope you are all having a great weekend and enjoying the arrival of spring!
