Some of my Favorite Things


Today I want to share with you a few of my favorite Etsy purchases. Clockwise from top left, Cute EcoVintage Cap in Grey Linen by Sandrine Marsh, White Sea Glass and Sterling Silver Seahorse Earrings by Sea Glass Designs, Little Leaves Embroidered Pendant Necklace by Edward and Lilly and Balance - Mini Art Feeling by Art Mind. Not only are the creators of these beautiful items super talented, but they are also super nice!


Pictured above are recent giveaway prizes that I won last month. I am not one to enter a lot of giveaways so you can imagine how surprised I was when I discovered that I was the lucky winner! The cool Crocodile Rockin' - Turquoise Earrings which I absolutely love are by Moags and Smeet. The heavenly smelling roll-on perfumes are by Margarita Bloom. I also have to add that both prizes were packaged so nicely. They were as much of a treat to open as they were to receive!

Shop Update: Next week I'll be adding new Harris Tweed messengers to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. There will be slight difference in their design. I will also be introducing some  items made with two new textiles that I am very excited about. So stay tuned!

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
