Outside My Window

This is the view from my window early this morning. Forecasts call for about 8 to 13 inches of snow across the New York metropolitan region today. Schools are closed and many people are staying home as you can see from the photo. I plan to venture out soon to get some groceries and some kitty food. I have several grocery stores within walking distance , less than one city block (264 feet), so all I need to do is put on my boots and trudge throw the snow. I do plan to spend most of my time in my studio today finishing up some new designs. I was sick with a cold this past week so I was not able work in my studio for several days. I have a few new bag designs in progress that I plan to introduce to the Pesky Cat Designs shop this Thursday if all goes as scheduled. Stay tuned!

Oh--it looks sooooo cold--we have the same here in Middle Europe--I am really lusting after some warm thaw! Can't wait to see your new designs, and get better soon!

What a view!
I wonder if Anni has ever seen the snow up close or does she only observe it through the windows...

Can't wait to see your new creations!
The view from your appartment window is amazing .... an absolute contrast to the beautiful green fan palms I can see from my studio window!
Hope you're feeling better today. I'm so excited that it's New Pesky Cat Bag Day today!

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
