I'm Back!



I'm back from my trip to St. Augustine Beach, Fl. We stayed at a hotel just yards away from Anastasia State Park, which includes more than 1,600 acres featuring four miles of pristine beach, a tidal salt marsh, and a maritime and upland hammock. There is also an archaeological site where coquina rock was mined to create the nearby fortress, Castillo de San Marcos National Monument. You can enjoy camping, beachcombing, swimming, picnicking, windsurfing, hiking, biking, wildlife viewing, boating and more. A self-guided nature trail guides hikers through a maritime hammock on ancient sand dunes. The weather was perfect, high 80's and sunny, so we were out and about everyday.

Now that I'm back I'm a busy bee working on several new projects. I'll tell you all about them very soon. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead!

What a beautiful beach and I like your story about Annie-Penelope and Magellan are both rescue kitties-we have had a busy morning-P. has discovered the kitchen counter-I have a cutting board and she was going from the table to the cutting board onto the counter-now she has realized that she does not need the table to get to the cutting board-I cannot tell you how many times I have taken her off the counter. She does not need the cutting board either-but she does not know that.

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
