Aviary Inspirations and More

I just added six new purses to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. There's a selection of Harris Tweed, corduroy and printed canvas. There are a couple of whimsical owls for those of you who are interested. Next week I'll have more bags made from printed canvas in a variety of themes.

Above is a photo of Anni in her favorite spot in our new home. She loves looking out the sliding doors to our balcony. She gets to watch exotic birds, butterflies, lizards and more. Our home is quite bare as you can see and we still need to hang up paintings on the wall etc. Slowly but surely we are settling into our new place. Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!

I love that Anni is lying upside down!
so cute.
The floors in your new place look beautiful! It takes awhile to hang artwork- we've lived in our house for years and ours is still leaning against the wall. sigh.

I agree with Abigail, those floors are beautiful!

Wow, the sea air is really giving you wings!

That painting waiting to be hung is one of yours, I suppose. And I see Anni is quite settled, she found her favourite place in the house and the favourite show to watch - what more could a cat want...

Ahahaha! Anni is the best!

I actually love the open space you have now. I am personally against too much furniture so to me it looks just right.
Thanks for all your comments!

EvaForeva- Personally I like the open space as well but the echo is driving me crazy! lol!
Love the owls AND the sunning fur baby!

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
