The Cat's Pajamas Art Studio


Hello once again Blogland. I am excited today to share with you one of the newest shops in North East, Maryland.


The Cat's Pajamas Art Studio!



Run by the talented Erica Dewitt. 

This shop will excite you so much, it'll knock your green & black striped socks right off!  

Now I knew Erica long before she became the proprietress of this eclectic Art Studio. She went to school with my daughters & I had the pleasure of watching this lovely girl grow up into such a talented woman.


She has been making these lovely Gourd Lamps & Bird Houses for a while now & this helped push her into the direction of starting her own unique shop.


Here is a sampling of some of her lamps & such.



Staring with her Gourd Birdhouses.
These little beauties have me cackling with delight!

I have seen her work up close as both of my girls have some of Erica's creations in their own homes.




I so adore the designs on this lamp!





This just screams "talented" to me!


The next photo is of her latest creation, the Turtle Gourd Lamp. I am in awe over her creative skills.





The time going into the planning of this whimsical lamp was a snap for Erica I am sure. She seems to have the eye for those things!

Just look how cute he is!




I want to feed him some lettuce & grass & paint his little turtle toenails! lol
Come on, how wickedly awesome is this?  One of a kind & his face looks so real.  


Her shop is full of items by various artists & creators in the area. She also sells these wonderful candles by Tracy Patrick creator of  "This Little Light of Mine" candles. I have first had knowledge of how scrumptious these candles are. I have a few in my own home. They are the creations of my youngest daughter, Tracy Patrick!



Here she is with her joy, her son Carson. Carson of course is one of my enchanting grandchildren! 




This Little Light of Mine candles come in a wide variety of scents & styles. Tracy makes them in tea cups, wine glasses, traditional jars & more!  The scents she uses are true & long lasting.

The Cat's Pajamas shop will even put together a gift basket for you!





Oh look! There are my daughter's candles in that one!  Looks like homemade soap too.







The Cat's Pajamas now has their own signature bath & body products created by Elaine & Betsy!

Doesn't that get you wanting to soak in a nice hot tub to rejuvenate yourself?


Erica must get her creative side from her mother, Yvonne Peirce. Yvonne creates handcrafted jewelry that is also sold in her daughter's shop!




They look wickedly fashionable don't they?



Erica has a wide variety of art work such as these whimsical ocean themed pictures by Cassandra Welker 




I am so loving these. I never thought I'd want to cuddle with an octopus but just look at how cute he is!





And this Maryland Blue Crab by Cassandra would make an attractive addition to your beachy decor!





Kitties! Oh my. This sets my heart on fire. Love Kitties!  Sharon Biemer is the talent behind these must have pieces.







Treats for your feet! Just try not to want a pair of these clever flip flops wrapped with yarn by Dawn Watson. Go ahead, try. I bet it doesn't work. 




In sizes for girls & ladies. Everyone can have a pair of these!

Hmmm.....I wonder if she makes them in black?  What? Witches love having comfy feet too!



Window frame photographs  Don't ya just love it?

Robert Parlier has done a wickedly fantastic job with these.  Oh, I could just snatch them all up.

I mean......look!






And look!







And look some more!





My happiness level is about to bubble over.

I want them all & I want these too:


John Werners creates these intriguing wooden candle holders from drift wood.  They would be a most welcome addition to any fashionable Witches alter or just your mantle or side table!




Of course I am also eyeballing that gorgeous table they are sitting on! 

How much for the table Erica?






Wow.  Just look at the character these pieces have.


More delightful work by Sharon Biemer. 

And look, there is the table I want again!



I could just go on all day about the wonderful items for sale in the Cat's Pajamas Art Studio!

You have to make it a stop on your travels if you are in the area or just driving through Maryland.




It will be a stop well worth your time.







Oh.....I want one of everything! Ok, more that one. I want all of it!

Bunnehs, Bunnehs Everywhere!


Blogland! Hows it going? I wanted to share with you a couple of photos of my neighbors. They are always hanging out in my back yard. I'm cool with that though. They use our picnic table, lay out under our trees & generally make themselves right at home.






When it rains, this little one uses the picnic table as an awning! Too cute right?




When I came home from work on Friday, this Bunneh greeted me! He look so relaxed. It made my day better & I can honestly say, save a few people from the wrath of my VooDoo Doll collection. (wink)





This particular Bunneh has dug itself a groove in which to lay in. Looks pretty comfy to me, how about you?

They are not afraid of us since they have been using our yard as theirs for quite a while. The Hubs & me always talk to them & give them water & food.


.  

This one is curious as to what I was saying to him. I told him he looked pretty relaxed.




 See him all sprawled out in his glory!  We have quite a few that hang out in our yard. The Hubs loves it when it is "playtime".  They chase each other & hop all around doing flips & such. It is a great time watching these little bugger enjoy themselves.

Some mornings as I am leaving for work there are the Bunnies, tons of birds & butterflies all around my yard. I feel as if I am walking out of my house & into a Disney flick!

What kind of Mother Nature's creatures hang out at your house?  I'd love to see some photos that you all could post with the beauty of Nature as the theme!

Whats cooking in the Cauldron?


Hello again Blogland! Today I want to share a simple yet wickedly delicious breakfast with you. I have weekends off but the Hubs most times has to work them. (miss him but so love the quiet time)

One Sunday morning, I wasn't quite sure what I wanted for breakfast. Something traditional but with a twist. So, I went digging through the fridge. I found eggs, cheddar cheese, french onion dip & a packet of sauce from Taco Bell.






I mixed up my eggs & french onion dip. No need for milk. The dip will make your eggs oh so creamylicous!


Next for a glob of bacon grease in the pan.






What?!?!?!? I'm going for flavor here not healthy!  Plus, when concocting a magickal breakfast dish you should always used tried & true ingredients. It's like in the Witches Code or something.




I added the cheddar cheese once the egg mixture stared to firm up & mixed it all together to finish cooking.

Last step was the Taco Bell sauce on top of the cooked eggs. I will be doing this again my Pretties! So much flavor on a plate!





Added some toast of course. Hmmmmm....I wonder if I have more Taco bell sauce packets in the fridge?  I know I have dip & cheese.  The Hubs leaves for work soon & I just might be making some magic in the kitchen once again. 

Give it a try. You don't need training in Magick to whip this delightful breakfast up!

Twenty-five Cent Planters


Morning my Blogland Sweeties! Back in April I scored big time with trunk load full of Halloween stuff from a Gabriel Bros. sidewalk sale for only $12.00! 
Yes, I know, what a wickedly awesome deal! Please, please save the applause for later.  Here is what my overstuffed trunk looked like:




See those adorable purple cauldrons? I cackled with glee when I spotted those for only a quarter a piece! In fact, everything I purchased that day was only a quarter. But more on that later!

I had a wickedly special plan for those cauldrons. 

Planters!

Yes, I was going to wave my wand & "poof" planters. Well, okay actually I had to punch a hole in the bottom of these beauties to transform them into planters.  One needs proper drainage for planters you know.




I used gardening shears to punch the holes on the bottom of the cauldrons. I had soooo much fun. It was almost as awesome as pushing pins into a Voodoo Doll!



Next step was placing some rocks in the bottom of the cauldrons turned planters. If you remember the curse on my house when we bought it, I had 5 tons of river rock in my front yard. (shudders)  So I had some rocks left over to do this with. Then, I added some potting soil & I was ready for my plants!

I added some Salvia & Impatiens. The Salvia I scored from Lowes at a marked down price of $1.00 each. All they needed was a little magic & a place to call home.





The replanting was under way!


I decided to place these on my front steps. The Hubs loves them. He didn't think he would but once he saw them & I waved my hand at his head.......the rest is history. Bwahahahahahaha!




Well would you look at that. My front steps need repainted. Gonna get the Hubs on that project pretty darned soon.  Yes, that is more left over river rock invading my photo. They maybe transformed into something else at a later date.




I am so happy with the way my plan worked out for these cauldrons & purple yet! My most favorite color! Now I have a Halloween reminder on my porch all Summer long!
(cackling here again!)
