Holiday Gift Ideas

This morning I discovered my Semi-Circle Purse on Etsy's front page! This list of holiday gift ideas was curated by Etsy and features lots of cool items. I especially love Ellie the horse by Annika Easter created out of corduroy, one of my favorite textiles, and yarn. I think it would be a great gift for a horse lover of any age!
By the way, I have an Equestrian Wayfarer Purse available in my shop now. The horse applique was inspired by a road trip that took me through the many horse farms located in Ocala, Florida last Spring. I would love to hear from my readers what their favorite applique design is from the Pesky Cat Designs shop or an applique design they would like to see in the shop. I really look forward to hear what you are inspired by!

Your bags are just beautiful! The horse applique is fantastic. I have my eye on the red cord one on your sidebar though, it's got my name all over it!

I check Etsy's front page almost everyday now to see if your bags are there and more often than not they are! Good job!

Give Anni a scrtch and a nuzzle for me!

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
