One of the things that’s always drawn me out into nature is the free flower show each year from the first thaw to the last frost. It’s happening out there right now with the floor of the woods covered with spring ephemerals all blooming in their turn. I already see the summer wildflowers putting up […]
Bella is just feeling pretty mellow yellow as she settles in her little world within her basket. Along with the blue seasonal bow on the handle there was one little yellow flower twined along the edge. I left it to see if she or anyone would take an interest. Bella is well aware of her […]
Each item on my website has $5.00 added into the posted price to cover average shipping. But shipping two of most items often costs no more than shipping one. I always give a discount at in-person sales at shows and in my shop, and I try to offer discounts to customers who don’t live close […]
Gingers and tuxedos, torties and tabbies, Siamese and Snowshoe, and lots of housepanthers, my collection of kitty cabochon pendants is inspired by the kitties who’ve shared my life. I’ve chosen paintings and portraits and sketches and photos and lots of different shapes and styles of frames, just as different as the kitties themselves. Above is […]
Sunflowers and sweet peas, daisies and St. John’s Wort, and butterflies, in all the colors of spring and summer! The cabochon pendants I made for my Seasons of the Panhandle Trail exhibit are a popular lot of designs. When I look at them I remember all those mornings and afternoons in cool spring woods or […]
When I got ready for my open house in December I made a few dozen more feline cabochon pendants, some I’d made before and also new art and photos, like the orange kitty you see in this photo, and with new cabochon plates, plain circles in a bigger variety of metal finishes as well as […]
Since this is pretty much what I’ve been doing for the past week I thought I’d share some more photos of my shop display. I’ve really been enjoying how some of the setups worked themselves out. I would love to have a shop but there is no way I could swing that but I love […]
Finally, the open house I’d been planning to host as early as October came to be, after getting all the work done that paid for the materials for the new items I made. And those items turned out so well and were very popular that it was worth both the wait and the effort. Holiday […]
This small pendant is made with a print of a detail of my ink sketch “Kitty in Pink”, but I colored him in with black because I liked the silhouette—which may look familiar because he’s the same silhouette I used on my “Cats Are Like Potato Chips” sign. Click the image to learn more about […]
Bernadette Kazmarski is my absolute favorite artist, I have one of her pieces on nearly every wall in my home. One of the things I admire most about her work is her feline art. Bernadette is able to capture cats in a very emotional and authentic way. The light and expressions on her feline subjects are so delightful. No animal has captivated us (and the Internet) quite like the house cat. Bernadette's pieces perfectly replicate the joys our feline friends bring to us.
Friends and I chipped in together and hired Bernadette to create a memorial of a friend’s beloved cat after kitty passed away. The memorial was beautiful! We highly recommend Bernadette’s work.

Bernadette Kazmarski is a friend and talented artist who's an avid cat lover just like us! She has created original cat artwork using a variety of mediums, and has transformed her artwork into such useful giftware items as notepads, garden flags, calendars, greeting cards table decor and votives (one of my personal favorites). She's also an award winning writer. Bernadette is a dedicated cat rescue volunteer and remains active in savings cats' lives.

I love Bernadette's creativity and style. In addition, when I purchase from her, it is from a wonderful, caring person, not a faceless corporation.
