A Crazy Week

Last week we had several things delay our move to St. Augustine, Florida but now we are finally moved into our new place.

I now have a huge studio space devoted just for Pesky Cat Designs. Our sweet kitty Anni was overwhelmed at first but now she enjoys climbing up and down the stairs of our home, something that she's never done since she's spent her entire life living in a one bedroom apartment.

I apologize for the delay in reopening the shop and for not being able to keep up with all your lovely blogs. At the moment we are still without internet service but hope to have everything up and running asap. I look forward to visiting all your blogs once my life is a little less hectic. See you soon!

Hey there Elisa, I came across your site thru Dawn's LaTouchables and when I saw that you are now living in St. Augustine, I had to be in touch. We lived there for almost four years, it really is a pretty place. I'd love to know where in the city you are, we were just a couple blocks from downtown.
Also, so loving your bags!
Beautiful work...all the best in your new home.

It sounds as if, given that you moved from NYC to beautiful, beachy Florida, things went pretty well. There are always unexpected (but really expected but unknown)delays when it comes to moving or building a home! It sounds like Anni took things pretty well in stride since a few days of anxious, unsure behavior is normal for animals & people alike. I'm sure you are both enjoying your new abodes! I hope so & I'm thrilled for you!

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

Spring is Here!

To celebrate the spring equinox I decided to take the entire day off from working in the studio. OK, I confess I did sew one button onto an applique, but that's it! The rest of the day was spent bike riding, watching waves and smelling spring flowers wafting through the air. The weather was absolutely beautiful with temperatures in the mid 70's. No jacket required. Just a t-shirt and sunglasses. Hope you are all having a great weekend and enjoying the arrival of spring!
