Cat Scarves or Art? You Decide.

I love brilliant, saturated color. I love cats. And since I have a metal allergy, my fashion accessory of choice is a scarf. So naturally, I fell in love with these hand-painted silk scarves! They come in various generous sizes and generally run from $33-$44 each. The artist is Alice Rodionova, who’s from Saint Petersburg, […]

Need a Sharknado Hat, Kittehs?

Once I got over the fact that this cat’s markings are remarkably similar to Rocky the Guttercat’s, I could ponder how really really badly I needed to get a sharknado hat for Tripper.

In an electronic world, it is sadly a lost art. Mejiro Graphics is keeping letterpress–and cats!– alive […]

5 Reasons You’ll Fall in Love with Cat Hoop Art

Kids today! Probably wouldn’t know an embroidery hoop from a garter belt. But seeing one immediately transports me to 7th grade summer school, when one of our home ec projects was learning to embroider a flour-sack kitchen towel.

For me, whose favorite medium is India ink scratched onto paper with a crow quill pen, watercolor seemed like a wild horse running away with me. Which […]
