Gift Show Treasure Found!

February 22, 2017

Yes, it is Gift Show time in the retail world! I traveled the short distance to the Los Angeles Wholesale Show as usual, hoping to find a new cat themed treasure to share with my customers.

Walking the isles, I will sometimes spot something out of the corner of my eye. Is that a cat design? Yes! So I stop and enter the booth area to see more.

This time it is a new line of baby onesies. This is an item that draws my interest as baby clothes are so darn cute! And it is a category I sometimes carry on my cat lover website, Georgia’s Gifts. This is a new company, started by a young entrepreneur and mom, Emily.  As often happens, she did not find the designs that she wanted for her new baby, so decided to design her own and the Baby Blastoff! fashion line was launched.

Hero Cats Will Save The Day!

August 14, 2016

Wherever I go I’m always on the lookout for new, unique & fun cat themed items to feature on my website or write about on my cat blog. On my recent adventure at CatConLA 2016 I discovered something brand new for me- Hero Cats of Stellar City comic books!

Hero Cats Comic Book Cover

How could I resist super hero cats! As I browsed the table full of the comic editions with colorful action packed artwork, I learned the backstory of the Hero Cats:

“The world changed forever when Galaxy Man & Cosmic Girl arrived in Stellar city.  Villains soon followed, bringing with them minions, henchmen, and other assorted threats.  While these super threats were being handled by the ever vigilant Galaxy Man and Cosmic Girl, it became necessary for the Hero Cats to deal to pick up the slack.”

Let me introduce you to the pack! Each one has a special talent for fighting crime and aliens and when you read the comics, you’ll also learn about their own special stories that brought them to where they are today.

Hero Cats

Ace is the team’s ever brave leader.

Cassiopeia is the recent addition to the team. She is a truly clever tabby cat who is able to read human writing. 

Rocket is the fastest cat in the world and might be from outer space.

Belle can read the human mind. There’s no fooling this feline. 

Midnight has a passionate dislike of criminals and is able to jump to extraordinary heights.

Rocco is the mountain of muscle who never loses a fight. His heart is big and true.

Bandit is ever the charmer and is skilled at covert operations.

The comic is told by Cassiopeia, the smart orange tabby, as she joins the team and soon proves her value to their mission.

The books are written by Kyle Puttkammer who was in attendance at the show so I was able to get an autographed copy of my purchase. The fantastic artwork is a collaboration of Marcus Williams, Ryan Sellers, Omaka Schultz and Briana Higgins and the comic is published by Action Lab Entertainment. The team has worked on other comics, including a spin off of the adventures of Midnight Cat.

I fell in love with the cast of Hero Cat characters and found myself rooting for them during their daring  escapades. This is such a fun book to escape into for a fantasy of a world where cats have super powers. Being a new reader, I bought Volumn 1 which includes the first three issues of the comic books. I plan to add to my collection and hopefully own them all!

Mom’s Love of Animals Adds Much Joy

May 6, 2016

When your Mom has passed on it’s always a little rough on Mother’s Day. Although as the years go by it does get easier. I am lucky to be able to still enjoy the love and kindness of my “other mom”, my mother-in-law, Shirley.

Shirley is at a point where she needs assistance with living and doesn’t get to go places as much as she used to. So her world involves a lot of reading and television. And the one subject that brings her much joy, as the title states, is her love of animals, in particularly dogs.

I’ve always known she loves dogs and have heard many, many, stories from her and my husband about the “extremely smart” dog, Skeet, they had when my husband was growing up. I think we all believe our childhood pet was the Best. One. Ever.

National Geographic and Animal Planet shows have given Shirley hours of pleasure along with many books on the subject of dogs. We have visited book stores and libraries to search for more and more books which she reads over & over (and she is a very fast reader!) .

Shirley and dog Jet

A nice bonus is that the apartments she lives in sometimes brings in dogs to visit the residents. We have also arranged for a few “personal” dog visits to her room. I’ve seen first hand how much pleasure this brings her and lightens her spirits. Nothing beats petting a real live warm, furry dog and getting sloppy kisses & licks from a wet tongue!

So although I am and always will be a cat lover first, I definitely agree that dogs give you unlimited love and can bring much joy. I am so glad that Shirley still gets a taste of that joy!

 Happy Mother’s Day!

Shirley, Richard and Georgia

Whimsiclay Plush Cats- The End of An Era

December 7, 2015
cottoncandyface

I remember when I first saw the adorable, whimsical, plush cats by Whimsiclay. Their smiling eyes and pom-tipped whiskers captured my heart right away! After almost 10 years, I still adore them just as much!

Back then I was strolling through a trade show, looking for a new product to showcase on my upcoming website, when they caught my eye. The booth that sponsored them was really highlighting plush fairies, which were big at that time. On a side table were the plush cats.

lilsweetie

Sweetie Cat has always been a top seller in all sizes.

I was familiar with the Whimsiclay ceramic cats, designed by artist Amy Lacombe. Many of the plush were patterned after some of the more popular figurine pieces. They were soft and colorful with a face that made you smile.  I knew right then that I had to have them to sell, first in my retail gift store and then later on my cat themed web site.

Through the years these plush cats, available in 2 sizes, plus a folding pillow, then cat slippers, have been consistent sellers.

One of my favorites was the sweet “Marsha” cat pillow, so perfect for a young girl’s room. This style sold out years ago.marshapillow

 

Here is colorful and fun Peppermint Cat. Other holiday cats include Rudy, Poinsettia and Winter Parfait.Sierra Exif JPEG

 

There have also been cats just for fun! Like Shanice in sunglasses, shown here. She also sometimes sports a red cap in place of the glasses.Sierra Exif JPEG

 

The plush line evolved into cat handbags and cat face slippers, such as Chili Cat slippers shown here.

chilislippers

This does seem like the “end of an era” and I am saddened to see them go. I am happy to let you know that I was able to stock up on some of the styles so you will be able to get them for a while on our site. The plush kitties make special gifts for a cat lover, especially at the holiday season.

So if you own one of these cuties, hang on to it!

 

 

 

 


Enchanting Cat’s Whiskers (the plant)

November 3, 2015
Cat's Whiskers plant

Cat’s Whiskers plant

We recently spent a wonderful week on the big island of Hawaii.  One warm and muggy day we visited the Hawaiian Botanical Tropical Gardens. Going down the walkway into the park, I had the illusion of entering Jurassic Park. There were green plants, bushes, trees in every direction –  up, down & all around. Adding to the fantasy were wild orchids in the trees, colorful tropical plants, and splashing waterfalls.

Cat's Whiskers Plant

Along one side of the path I noticed spiky looking white flowers on bright green foliage. Looking closer, I discovered an enchanting bloom with long, delicate protruding hairs.  My first thought was “that looks just like cat whiskers!”.  After searching for the name signage, you can easily guess what name I discovered.

Since this is my new favorite plant, I wanted to find out more about it and how to grow it.  From East Asia, its proper botanical name is Orthosiphon aristatus, but is better known as Java tea. Used in herbal medicine, this mint related plant is known to aid in treatment of kidney stones, gallstones, urinary tract infections and much more.

However useful, I like the plant for its ornamental beauty. The bright white, long stamens have a touch of whimsy and look striking against the deep green leaves. And as a bonus, the nectar attracts bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.

Growing best in a tropical climate, with proper care Cat’s Whiskers can be grown in sunny climates.  I am determined to give it a try and start my own enchanted garden!

Are you a cat lover? I invite you to visit my website for unique and whimsical gifts & décor with a cat theme. And I welcome you to post any photos of your Cat’s Whiskers plant to this blog in the comments!
