Even though I have always considered myself a “dog person”, my heart has always been big enough for both cats and canines (as well as both The Beatles and The Stones, but that’s another post). In my family cats are called “Frittens”, and we have had some special ones. In honor of Norton (and the recently re-released Opening Ceremony Cat Knit), here’s to my furry feline friends…a.k.a Frittens

Weeell, maybe not the entire population…
I’ve been slacking a bit on posts lately, but all for a good reason. I’ve been home in the States for the holidays, so traveling, family, friends and spirits have delightfully been occupying my time. My posts will probably be sparse from now until the new year, but I have some fun things planned for 2012! For now, I’ve decided to list a few wishes for Santa from my favorite Esty merchants… All I want for Christmas this year is vintage or indie design…gotta support my kind.
Last, but certainly not least, one of my favorite indie jewelry designers Young Frankk…I got her collar necklace from my sister for my birthday, and hope to own a few more pieces very soon!
Even though my board has been filled with the likes of Louise Bourgeois Fabric Works, The Bloomsbury Group, vintage wallpaper and Townes Van Zandt (never thought I would use Townes and wallpaper in the same sentence), I have managed to leave a bit of space for Kiki Smith. Known for her sculptures, it is her print work that has my brain moving and heart dancing.
