A Photo Shoot and a Sweet Feature

Yesterday I decided it was time to take some model shoots of my Harris Tweed Messenger/Shoulder Bag so I threw on my warm faux suede coat and some comfortable boots and headed over to the Gramercy neighborhood of NYC. That's me standing on the corner of 19th street and Irving Place.

I also took a photo of my Offbeat Messenger being worn as a shoulder bag in front of Gramercy Park, a small fenced-in private park located in the Gramercy neighborhood of NYC. It is privately owned by the owners of the surrounding structures and residents living in these buildings that face the park may buy a key to the park. It's obvious that I did not have a key but managed to get a nice shoot nontheless.

And last but certainly not least, this morning my Harris Tweed Messenger Bag was featured on Etsy's front page! Thank you GloriaKirk for creating such a lovely treasury. Check out her shop for beautiful one-of-a-kind scarves and wrist cuffs made from natural fibers. The colors and textures in her work are absolutely gorgeous.

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
