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!

What cute little gift ideas. How is your little baby? I am home sick in bed. My two are snuggled up next to me. After being gone they now have me home in bed with them.

Build Your Own Purse

I've been working on creating a listing in my shop that will allow my customer to "build" their own purse. I am playing around with a lot of different ideas at the moment. The listing will include a choice of exterior fabric in several colors with a selection of coordinating cotton print fabric to choose for the interior of the purse. There will be a selection of my applique designs to choose from such as cherry blossoms, a bird on a branch, seahorses and more. I think my custom listing will be a great addition to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. If you have any ideas or suggestions I would love to hear from you. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

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
