Greetings from Miami Beach!


Last Tuesday my partner Tom and I left NYC to embark on a road trip to Florida. Along the way we made lots of stops. One of my favorite places so far was Savannah, Georgia. The city is just beautiful with Spanish moss hanging from trees everywhere and quaint looking homes. I could picture myself living there. One of the most adventerous places we visited was Juniper Springs Park in Ocala, Florida. We rented a canoe and paddled 7 miles along a narrow river surrounded with lush vegetation and overhanging trees that required us to duck on many occassions. At one point we paddled by an alligator that growled at us!

Well, yesterday we arrived in Miami Beach! We spent the entire day walking along the beach and exploring the area. The ocean is absolutely beautiful here. Today we plan to visit the Florida Everglades. When I return from my trip I'll post lots of photos and I'll even have a giveaway. Stay tuned!

Build Your Own Purse

I've been working on creating a listing in my shop that will allow my customer to "build" their own purse. I am playing around with a lot of different ideas at the moment. The listing will include a choice of exterior fabric in several colors with a selection of coordinating cotton print fabric to choose for the interior of the purse. There will be a selection of my applique designs to choose from such as cherry blossoms, a bird on a branch, seahorses and more. I think my custom listing will be a great addition to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. If you have any ideas or suggestions I would love to hear from you. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

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
