Autumn is Here!


Yesterday Autumn officially arrived here in NYC while the weather remained summer-like. Today the temperature is 81F and I ran my morning errands wearing a light t-shirt, jeans and my comfortable Wolky sandals. I went to go to the UPS store, the Union Square Farmers Market and the hardware store. After arriving home I realized I also need cat litter, cat food and groceries. One of the disadvantages of living in the city is that you have to carry all your groceries home since driving and parking is such a hassle. The advantage to living in the city is that you can order anything you want by phone or on the internet, including groceries and have them delivered to your home in an hour! So I ordered everything I needed and waited patiently for all to arrive by eco-friendly bicycle. Now Anni has her essentials and my partner and I have groceries for dinner. Tom is already cooking the brussel sprouts, my favorite. I didn't get much done in the studio today but I did add two new handbags to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. The shoulder bag posted above was a little experiment with a new design. I think it's a perfect bag to celebrate the fall season with!

Enjoy your Autumn glorious colours!
Love the bag!

How cool is it that you can order those things and have them delivered like that. Is it terribly expensive to have them delivered?
Thanks for your comments everyone. :)

Whimsical Creations- The pet store has free delivery and the grocery store is $2.95 for delivery. I do tip the delivery man in each case so it can get expensive. So it's not sometime I do on a daily basis although I would like to!

I never heard of someone who called brussel sprouts a favorite! Usually I hear people hating them :) Handy that you can call for groceries, ahhh wish we had that too!
Gorgeous bag as always!

I like that new bag very much. There's also a pretty pumpkin colored corduroy on your website, looks like a tote with a flap closure and someone is carrtyin it. Love that bag. Maybe it's the same as here just a different color?
I agree, this bag is perfect! The leaf design is too lovely.

Your creativity is to be treasured!
Brussel sprouts are a favourite of one of my sons too, but the other kids won't look at them :)

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

Freezing in Florida

I'm back from my week long vacation in St. Augustine, Florida. Founded in 1565, it is the oldest established city and the oldest port in the continental United States. My partner Tom and I stayed at a oceanfront hotel located on St. Augustine Beach, just 3.7 miles from historic downtown St. Augustine, with views of the sea and the sound of crashing waves from our room. The weather was quite cool for this time of the year with an average temperature in the low to mid 50's but we enjoyed exploring downtown, walks on the beach and having an indoor pool and hot tub to relax in. The hotel had an area with a glass wind barrier that made it warm enough to lie in the sun, even with a bathing suit on, in 50 degree weather. Walks on the beach required socks with sandals most days, yes I know that is a big fashion faux pas but I made it work with matching socks. I must say that I did not miss the hustle and bustle of NYC at all and throughly enjoyed the relaxation and peace. Today in NY
