Ivory Cat Tea Towels- Functional & Beautiful

January 25, 2014

As I’ve mentioned in a former blog, I’m always on the lookout for new cat kitchen tea towels.

Recently I found these beautiful cotton towels featuring the artwork of English artist Lesley Anne Ivory.

Tabby On Rug Cotton Tea Towel

Tabby On Rug Cotton Towel

I’ve seen her work before but I had forgotten how wonderful her cat art is!  She does exquisitely realistic cat images on highly detailed backgrounds, such as carpets, mosaics and more. For instance in the above art the tabby cat is on a colorful patchwork rug.  On the one below, the cat rests on a peacock designed rug.

I wanted to learn more about the artist, so I started searching.  I found that Lesley Anne Ivory is a very private person! Here are a few facts I discovered about her:

Lesley was born in 1940 in Bedfordshire, England.  She studied at various art schools and earned the National Diploma in Design. She specializes in portraits of her own cats and those belonging to her family and friends.  She exhibits in London and New York and has illustrated successful cat books plus more than 40 children’s books. You can find her cat artwork on calendars, note cards and many other gift products. Below is one of only two photos I found of Lesley…

You can find these cat kitchen towels, Tabby On Rug and Meow Meow, on my website.  They measure 19″ x 29″ and cost $10.50 each.  I plan to add more of her cat art on other products and hope you love her work as much as I do.  What item would you like to see illustrated with her cats?


Cat Ceramic Tiles – The Most Innovative, Fun & Functional Gift!

November 9, 2013

Haven’t you, now or some time in your life, owned a ceramic tile? Maybe not a cat tile, but a tile?

Furry Cat Ceramic Tile, 8x8

“Furry Cat” Tile, 8″x8″

Cat ceramic tiles can be one of the most versatile items you can own or give as a gift to a cat lover. They are not just for floors! We have accumulated a list of some of the many fun and innovative ways to put these decorative tiles to use.  Read on…

DISPLAY- Place your tile on a plate stand to set on a counter or table to showcase the tile design. We are partial to showing cat designs of course.

TRIVETS- Being heat-resistant, tiles make the perfect barrier to protect your linens or table top from hot dishes.

COASTERS- 4″ x 4″ tiles are perfect for drink coasters. Mix and match fun and colorful designs to delight your guests.

KITCHEN- Use as a sink or stove backsplash to protect your wall. Tiles can be mounted or you can also just set a couple of tiles behind your faucet or stove for a quick decorative look for a party, holiday or any day!

BATHROOM- Cat lovers can frame a shower or bath with cat tiles for a fun look. Or set in as accents pieces with other background tiles.

GARDEN/PATIO- Border your garden or patio with cat tiles for a totally unique look.  Embellish a fence with select tiles. Or set your potted plant or flowers on color coordinated tiles.

Black & White Cat w/Flowers 8x8 Ceramic Tile

FRAMED ART- Put your favorite cat tile in a special frame & hang for wall decor.

FIREPLACE- Be different! Surround your fireplace with tiles, using cat images as special accents.

CANDLE PLATE- Again, being heat-resistant make tiles a good base for a candle. Make a colorful grouping.

CRAFT PROJECTS- Last but not least, think of the multitude of uses for tiles in a creative craft project. Use them whole, or if you happen to have some broken ones, make a mosaic! They are also good to use as a base to work on with clay or paints as they are stain resistant.

THE PERFECT CAT LOVER GIFT- We couldn’t end without mentioning our wonderful selection of cat tiles we offer on our website in various sizes. We invite you to check it out!

Now that you have started thinking about it, I bet you can come up with even more great ideas for cat ceramic tiles! We’d love to have a comment about a project you have done with your tiles.

Sneak Peak of New Cat Lover Gifts Coming Soon!

July 26, 2013

Yes! It’s that time of year again – Gift Show time. Twice a year I travel to the LA Gift Show in my quest to find new fun and unique cat lover gifts & décor for my website.

It’s so exciting when I find something that I can’t wait to bring to my customers.  Some of my suppliers offered some great new cat designs on handbags, kitchen linens, ceramic tiles and accent pillows.  Plus, a brand new line I am proud to start carrying is a cat handbag design from Bungalow 360, a sociable responsible business. It will be available in a tote, wristlets, mini backpack, a hat and more!

 Here is a sneak peak of what’s to come….

CERAMIC TILES- Artists Claudia Sanchez and Ping continue to create colorful new cat images that we adore. Shown below is a stunning yellow cat among vibrant marigolds by Ping.  We also restocked many of our popular cat tiles in various sizes.

KITCHEN LINENS- It’s always fun to change the towels and potholders to give your kitchen a fresh new look. Our newest cat design is called Catwalk with matching towels, pot mitts and apron.  But we also could not resist the apron shown below with its whimsical artwork. Fun to wear or give as a gift! (Listen up husbands).

TAPESTRY PILLOWS- This new throw pillow is perfect for a young girl’s room. Team it up with a small matching quilt to cozy up with on a chilly evening.  We also reordered the popular Cat Nap pillow and a few other fun tapestry décor pieces.

Continuing Search for Cat Lover Gifts, Part III

March 8, 2013

If you like cat tiles you might be familiar with the artist Claudia Sanchez. She does beautiful cat art that is converted onto ceramic tiles. I have carried her vivid colored cat tiles for several years. Recently she changed manufacturers and came out with new 8″ x 8″ designs which I found on my last trip to the LA gift show. They are very unique with a black background that makes the image stand out.  Here are a few of them that I have featured on my website.

This next tile is a delightful & whimsical tile showing two “best friends” enjoying the evening sky.

In addition to the 8″ x 8″ tiles, I have coaster size tiles, 4″ x 4″.  These make a beautiful set to own or to give as a gift. They can also be purchased individually if you happen to fall in love with one of them!  Here is a grouping of the cat faces that Claudia is known for. (Clicking on the group will take you to the first style on my website)

I hope you enjoy viewing these beautiful tiles.  They are very versatile -use as wall, counter or desk art, a backsplash in your kitchen, decoration on your bath or patio wall, or as a trivet.  Are you ready to start your collection today? Visit Georgia’s Gifts to see these designs and many more tiles and other cat lover gifts!


New Cat Lover Gifts are Coming!

August 14, 2012

Every January & July I visit the LA Gift Show to search for new and whimsical cat gifts to sell on my website, georgiasgifts.com. I try to find things that are brand new or that one won’t see in every other gift store they visit, either online or in person.

Happily I found a couple of things this past July that I can’t wait to get in to show my customers!

Christmas Cats Flour Sack Kitchen Towel

Chistmas Cats Towel

I love cat kitchen towels and ran across this small company from California that specializes in flour sack towels and has a nice inventory of cat styles. I have already gotten my first shipment in and have them on my site under cat kitchen decor. They join my other assorted flour sack, linen and cotton cat towel styles.

Black Cat Slippers from Aroma Home

Black Cat Slippers

Calling all black cat lovers! Cat slippers are always popular and fun and I found the most adorable black cat slippers from Aroma Home. These are soft and comfy with cute pink noses & ears, so hard to resist!  Other cute cat items coming from this company include cat sock slippers and cat screen wipes.

"Advice from a Cat" Pillow from Manual Woodworkers

“Advice From a Cat” Pillow

You may be familiar with the cat “word pillows” from Manual Woodworkers as they are eternally popular.  This fall you’ll find some brand new pillows you will want to have for your own collection or to give as the perfect holiday gift for a cat lover. I don’t have photos yet for the new styles, but shown here is a favorite I will be adding to my site.

For the Laurel Burch cat lovers, I’ll have the newest fall handbags & scarves coming in, probably early in September.  Also some beautiful glass cat products from the Joan Baker company. You’ll see new cat vases, suncatchers and candle holders.

I hope you will be as excited about these new items as I am!  If you have some ideas or requests for something you would like me to add to my site, please comment below, ask on facebook or send me an email. I’m always open to new ideas!


Cat Artist Claudia Sanchez Re-Mixed

July 15, 2012

I have featured ceramic tiles with the colorful cat art by Claudia Sanchez for several years on my website. She has a loyal following and some of the pieces are very popular, especially “Samantha”.  This design is a multi colored close-up of a cat’s face with eyes that mesmerize you.

“Samantha” Ceramic Cat Tile

Sadly I have sold out of the Samantha tile and can not reorder it at this time. This brings me to the good news! I’m excited to tell you that the artist has a new distributer and they are working together to redesign the older tiles and bring out new ones.  I love the new name of the line, “Claudia’s Cats”.  These are scheduled to be available in the fall, just in time for your holiday shopping!

Here is a preview of some of the styles that will be coming out. Keep in touch on my website or like my facebook page to learn when they are in stock.  Let me know if you are a collector of Claudia Sanchez and which tiles are your favorites, both old and new!
