Wow I have been Gone a long time but Back with Great News.

Seymour Here:

Hi, everyone!!!  I missed all of you but we have been so busy this past winter and most of the spring.  What have we been up to?  Lots.  And I’ll have to catch you up on my friends too.

Where to Start.

First, I should announce that ADKArtsBoutique is having a SALE!!  Yep.  We have a sale going on right now of all of our handcrafted handbags.  All you need to do is use the coupon code: SPRINGFLING24 for a 10% discount.  Here are just a few!!  www.etsy.com/shop/ADKArtsBoutique

 

Now the BIG NEWS!!  We have opened a third shop on Etsy.  It is called BirchwoodGallery.  It will be full of art, drawings, and photography.  Need something for that wall, here is the place to come to.  It is run by my sister Katilee so stop by and say hello.  www.etsy.com/shop/BirchwoodGallery

Here is a glimpse into her great shop and I’m the mascot there too. 🙂

My mom has started a whole new line in ADKArtsBoutique.  Guess who is the top model. ME!!  Yep, pet clothes and here is me doing my modeling job.  She just started this new section and plans on adding more handmade original designs soon.  She can make these for any pet you have from hamster to large dog.  This is Rico modeling one mom made for him.  https://www.etsy.com/shop/ADKArtsBoutique?ref=hdr&section_id=18513400

Here I am strutting my cat stuff.  Not bad if I say so myself.

Here is Moses.  He is a satisfied customer.  He got a poncho and a blanket.  Lucky Kitty.

My Dad is still busy with his Etsy Shop MountainAireVintage.  He is adding new items every day.  Vintage and Antiques are his favorite things next to me.  He especially loves beautiful old glassware.  Here are some of his newest items.  Stop by and say hi to Dad.  www.etsy.com/shop/MountainAireVintage

 

Now to tell you about my friends.  I’ll start with Spots.  He is a busy Kitty helping his mom in her Etsy shops.  www.etsy.com/shop/SwamiJewelry  and  www.etsy.com/shop/RainbowKnit    When he is not doing that he is having fun with his playmates.  Here is my best friend from Singapore.  As you can see he is a great help, he keeps his mom’s fingers warm when she is working.  Oh, can’t let the keyboard get cold either.  We cats have to work very hard.

I have a doggie friend which you already met being dog model of the year.  His name is Rico and he lives in Pennsylvania.  He helps his mom too in her Etsy shop.   www.etsy.com/shop/MonicaWilgaDesigns

My mom has taken up bike riding.  She wants to be a biker chick but I just hate to tell her that it a motorcycle you need to ride.  Not a bicycle to be one.  Sometimes these humans get it all wrong.  Some even think horses are bicycles.  LOL  Good thing pets are here to take care of them.

That is the news from here.  I spend as much time as possible helping Mom.  I have my own place next to her when she is working.  I lay on top of a large tote and she thinks I’m sleeping. I’m really keeping an eye on her.  I have to watch these people all the time or they get into trouble.  A cat’s work is never done.   Goodbye for now.  I’ll be back Soon, Seymour

Seymour Here!!

Seymour Here –  Hi everyone!!  It’s been a long time since I’ve had a chance to talk to you all.  You see Mom became a leader of a new great team on Etsy.  It’s called TeamVintageUSA.  It’s a team of vintage and handmade sellers.  It’s a fun team and hassle free.  The only requirement is that shops have to be located in the United States.  Buyers are very welcome to join also. This is our logo. :))

Image

The Captain of the team is Denise from oldandnew8 on Etsy.  She sells beautiful vintage items.  Here is a link to her shop and an item that she sells.   https://www.etsy.com/shop/oldandnew8

Image

As for us here at ADKArtsBoutique  https://www.etsy.com/shop/ADKArtsBoutique  we have been very busy.  Mom has finished and listed a new crocheted baby blanket.  It is so lovely.  A giraffe sitting on a cloud and the cloud is very soft.  So now you have 2 to chose from. They would make a great baby shower, christmas, or birthday gift.  Great for babies and toddlers.  Both the blankets have a faux fur backing that is soft, warm, and comfy.     https://www.etsy.com/listing/191631316/crochet-baby-blanket-baby-afghan-with?ref=shop_home_active_14

We spent one weekend climbing in the Adirondacks.  We climbed Big and Little Crow mountain.  I shouldn’t say we, they left me at home. 😦  Mom, Dad, and Katilee went.  Ben was at work so I was all alone except for my best friend Ursa.  (Goldfish).  I couldn’t even get on the interent so I could talk to Spots in Singapore. ;(  But they came home with some beautiful photographs.  Mom posted one in the shop and here it is.  https://www.etsy.com/listing/190162875/adirondack-landscape-photography-art?ref=shop_home_feat_4

Image

Look at the beautiful view I missed.  But I’ll get to see it anytime I want now without having to climb a mountain.  That is good because  between you and I climbing mountains is not really something I would like.  But I do love the photos. :))  They really had a great day.  It was beautiful and sunny.  They met nice people on the summit with their dog.  Here is some photos of the fun that they had. 🙂

Image

That is my sister Katilee on the right isn’t she pretty. Especially that lovely smile but then I’m her cat brother.  She has been very busy too.  She went to outer space.  Well in her artwork that is where she went.  Here is her newest.  It’s a set of 2 differernt digital paintings. They would be so beautiful in a frame with a black matte.   https://www.etsy.com/listing/191645750/outer-space-art-digital-art-prints-the?ref=shop_home_feat_3

Image

Image

It makes me just want to catch the nearest starship and take a ride.  Maybe some of my friends could come with me.  Speaking of my friends I have just a bit of news.  I haven’t heard from Skylar (he’s probably in trouble again) and Lucy and Kitty’s Mom had been away so they are probably staying pretty close to her now that she’s home.

Spots is sad becasue he can’t use Bobo the Bunny as his live toy any more.  No more playing.  He didn’t know it but it upset Bobo more that she let on.  So their Mom has to keep them separated.

This is a sad Spots:

Image

So now all Spots can do is help his Mom make beautiful things for her 2 shops.

Swamijewelry

https://www.etsy.com/shop/SwamiJewelry

Image

and Rainbowknit   https://www.etsy.com/shop/RainbowKnit

Image

Image

Spot’s Mom can knit beautifully.

I have just been enjoying myself helping my Mom and playing outside.  Being outside it the best. 🙂

Image

Image

Image

So after all that hard work and playing I have to do what cats to best.  That is to take a cat nap. So until next time take care of those who love you unconditionally.  Your furry, feathered, and scaly friends.  Please adopt, rescue, and love.  –Seymour

PS Looking for the perfect present for your furry friends.  Just visit AcrossLeather on Etsy.  https://www.etsy.com/shop/AcrossLeather  You just might find something for yourself too.  I’m also in their banner. 🙂  You’ll recongize me I’m the cat 🙂  Say “hi” to Lawrence for me.

My New Friend Skylar and My Bath Time

Seymour Here.  Hi all.  Just dropped in to tell you what’s up with me.  I have a new friend.  This is Skylar.  He lives in Florida and wants me to hunt Lizards with him.  That is what he is doing in the photo.

Image

Skylar and I will become great friends I know it.  But I’m leaving the lizard hunting to him.

I hope every one has had a great St. Patrick’s Day.  Now this is the way to celebrate.

Image

Now I’d like to tell you a bit about Skylar’s mom.  Her name is Yoya and she is a great artist. She is writing a book too.  It will be about a Swan and a Dinky Bird.  Oh what is a Dinky Bird.  Well this is.  The artwork is belongs to YoyaOriginals©

Image

Isn’t cute.  I love it.  Can’t wait for the book to come out and when it does I’ll definitely let you all know.  What other art does Skylar’s mom do.  Here are some examples.

Image

Image

But being a cat this is my favorite one!!!  It’s call cat and mouse.  Isn’t it fun!!

Image

All of these beautiful paintings and more are available at Etsy. YoyaOriginals.  Here is a link if you’d like to check it out.     https://www.etsy.com/shop/YoyaOriginals

My other friends are all fine.  They are happy and healthy.  That is the best news.  My St Patricks Day was cold.  No Green Beer for me either.  I’m not sure I’d like it much anyway.   I did have to have a bath though.  I have dry cat skin and it makes me itchy.  So I have to have a bath now and then.  I look funny when I take one.  The villain that is giving me one is my mom  and my sister Kati took the photos.  She thinks their funny.  I don’t !!!

Image

Image

Here I am drying off under the heat lamp.  At least it’s warm and toasty

Image

But once I get all dry I can get tucked in and take a nap.  Now that what I call living!!

Image

So I’m off back to dreaming of summer and being outside chasing all the wonderful little creatures out there.  Please Adopt, Love, and Protect your furry, feathered, and scaly friends they love you unconditionally. —Seymour

New At ADKArtsBoutique On Etsy.com

Seymour Here:   Hi everyone!!  What is new at the boutique?  Glad you asked.  My mom has been very busy with her fingers flying so fast you can hardly see her crochet hook.  But the out come is marvelous.  She started by adding some new bags to our bags, purses, pouches, and clutch line. So here they are.

First we have is a beautiful Yellow and White one. It’s sleek, stylish, elegant, and dressy. But it’s also versatile enough to go with a pair of jeans.

Image

Next we have a White, Black, and Red Clutch. This beautiful multi-colored clutch is a perfect size and a perfect look.

Image

Then we have a new Cell Phone Pouch. This delightful small dark grey pouch will hold a small Cell Phone. It is also great as a small bag to hold various items.

Image

Now for something a little different.  She decided it was time to make a new doily design. This is a beautiful white doily (mat). It has a center flower design surrounded by pineapples. The bright white color brings a touch of light to any room decor. It is beautiful and functional at the same time. Doilies are great for protecting your furniture while adding elegance.

Image

These are all available at ADKArtsBoutiqe on Etsy. com

https://www.etsy.com/shop/ADKArtsBoutique

She also joined a new team on Etsy.  It is called TeamVintage USA.  She made them a Banner and it was excepted.  She was very honored and delighted to have it featured.  This is it.

Image

She was also asked to be a leader of the team which is another great honor for her.  She is extremely happy and delighted to help the team.

Now for me.  Besides typing this all up which unless you have cat paws you can’t understand how hard it is, I have been busy making sure that shipping is going out on time and packaged well.  I believe in Customer Service.  Then I decided that since winter has not left, actually we just got freezing rain, sleet, and snow that I needed a new place to sleep.  So mom brought in this big new box to store some of her supplies in.  But before she could use it I decided it would make a great place to hide and sleep.  So I pulled two of my small cat blankets into it and that’s where she found me.  Waiting for spring to come and now I get to keep the box.   There in not much else to do after I get my Bouitque work done.  I mean even the mice are hibernating.  My friends Spots, Bobo, and Happy are doing well. Their mom is taking good care of them.

I did get to have some fun.  I went to a Birthday party for my brother Ben.  Here I am officiating! I’m sitting next to dad guarding the ice cream  🙂

Image

Thank you for spending some time with me.  Just waiting for spring as I mentioned before. Hope you all have a great day and remember to adopt, love, and take good care of your furry, feathered, or scaly animal friends.  They love you unconditionally.  😀

Looking for Spring!!!

Seymour here:  My last post I told you what was new in our shop.  Now I’d like to tell you about my friends.  Here is my best friend Spots.  He loves to drive his human mother crazy by picking on his friends Bobo and Happy.  He loves to chase Bobo ( Rabbit) and stick his paws in Happy’s cage (parrot).  I’m not much better I love to tap on Ursa’s (goldfish) tank just to make her swim. LOL

Image

Bobo The Magnificent Rabbit has had a hair cut.  Now he doesn’t look like a tribble.  More like a stock broker.  Such a good rabbit to put up with Spots antics.

Image

I don’t happen to have any photos of Happy.  I’ll have to ask his mom for some.

Ursa is a great friend.  She puts up with me.  Image

Now me.  I’ve been just looking out the window watching for spring to come.  I think I have a long wait.  It’s very cold out and supposed to snow on and off all the rest of the week and into next week.  I dream of last year when I was out side on my rope playing.

Image

Or camping with my family

Image

But it looks like this outside right now.

Image

So I guess I’ll have to be patient and wait for Spring and this is the best way I know how.

Have a great last day of February and Happy March tomorrow-  Seymour

Image

Guess What???

Seymour here.  Just thought I’d check in and let you know whats new here at ADKArtsBoutique (https://www.etsy.com/shop/ADKArtsBoutique) We’ve bought a new photo printer so our prints are even more spectacular.  We believe in giving our customers the very best quality prints and images.  So a beautiful image like this will be stunning.

Have a great last day of February- Seymour

Etsy’s QVintage and Friend Spring 2014

Seymour Here: Hi, My Friend Violeta from Q Vintage on Etsy made this lovely video. We are featured in it along with other great Etsy shops. Please take a minute and check it out. You knows what wonderful items you’ll find. Thank You.

Whats New!!

Seymour Here.  Hi Everyone.   Just thought it was time to check in and let you all know whats NEW! First my Mom and Dad went out last night to the theater (Proctor’s in Schenectady NY) and saw the musical Sister Act.  Not like the movie and all different music. But they liked it a even more so.  They had a great time, brought home hamburgers and nothing for me. What’s up with that???  Oh well.

There has been lots of snow and cold here this winter.  But we have a heat wave today highs in the 40’s.  Believe me that is warm compared to what we have had.  I can’t wait till it’s all gone and warm so I can go out and play on my leash.  Chase a few chipmunk, squirrels, rabbits, toads, and my favorite snakes.  My sister Kati hates it when I bring snakes to her but I just don’t know why.

At the Boutique we have been busy adding a new digital art painting and photograph.  I personally think that they are fantastic.  They are cat approved.  Of course I approve of everything that goes into the boutique.

First there is Kati’s new painting.  It is called Irish Darling.  This  digital art painting is darling and has a nice feeling to it.  An Irish maiden takes a walk through the countryside. Enjoying the mists in the hills she stops by a stone wall to have her portrait painted by a young artist. This is the Irish dream I see when I gaze upon this lovely painting. What is yours?                       https://www.etsy.com/listing/179849276/digital-art-painting-art-digital?ref=listing-shop-header-0

Image

Next is my brother Ben’s new photograph.  Its called Snow Train.  This is a wonderful photograph of an Amtrak Train heading north through a snowstorm. The wheels kick up the snow as the train speeds by on it’s way to Montreal. This photograph would be great in a den, man cave, office or studio. It’s a really great gift for any train enthusiast. So come with us and enjoy the magic of the rails.  https://www.etsy.com/listing/179678207/train-photograph-art-photography-8-12-x?ref=listing-shop-header-1

Image

My friends are doing fine.  Ursa swims around her bowl, shares her food and keeps me company when humans are gone.

Image

Spots is doing well.  He’s helping his Mom with her Etsy shops Rainbowknit  https://www.etsy.com/shop/RainbowKnit and Swamijewelry  https://www.etsy.com/shop/SwamiJewelry

Image

Bobo The Magnificent is getting spoiled as always.  Spots loves to terrorize him.

Image

Hope you all are having a great day.  Waiting for dinner time here.  Keep warm, well fed, and comfy.  Don’t for get to hug your human today.  They need special attention.  As always “Save A Life, Adopt”  or  “Save A Stray”  Everyone needs a home with lots of love.

Look What I Got And It’s Not Even My Birthday!

Seymour here.  WOW!! I got the surprise of my life.  A package came in the mail and it was for me. I got a brand new beautifully hand tooled collar from AcrossLeather on Etsy.  (https://www.etsy.com/shop/AcrossLeather)  This collar is wonderful.  I just have to give up my life as an escape artist.  Mom finally got me a collar that I can’t get out of.  But since she had to do it I will admit she got me a beauty.  Check this out.

This is the beautiful hand tooled back

 Image

This is how it fits neatly under my chin

Image

And it is so comfy I have no problem taking my cat nap

Image

So what a great surprise this was for me!!! I love it and wonder what will be next.

You do know I’m spoiled rotten.  Just don’t tell Mom that!!  I’m a most fashionable cat now and very lucky too.  Cat’s can’t have tattoo’s so this is next best thing.  So if you want to make you cat or yourself as fashion oriented as me just check out all the great leather items at AcrossLeather. They make wonderful Collars, Wallets, Belts and much more. Just click on this link and you’ll arrive there quickly and safely.  https://www.etsy.com/shop/AcrossLeather

Just a quick update on my friend Spots.  He is running around his home at full speed and terrorizing Bobo the Rabbit.  Driving his poor Mom crazy.  But that’s good because by doing that we know he’s feeling good.

Have a great week everyone.  Be good to your pet friends and they will love you back.  Remember adopt a pet, save a life.  — Seymour

Broomstick Lace Blanket/Afghan and more

Seymour Here.   Just thought I’d mention since it is really been cold here a great way to keep warm.  Our broomstick lace blanket/afghan is large enough for a double bed and is so comfy and cozy.  It’s wonderful brown, orange, and tans make it very restful.  A great throw to curl up with to watch TV, read a book, or take that much needed nap.  Being a cat I know how much that nap is needed, as well as keeping warm while doing it.   So here is our blanket.Image

Image

We also have some great last minute ideas for Valentine’s Day  Check these out.!!  Gifts for that special someone!!!

Image

A fantastic hand crocheted Doily called Heart to  Heart.  Show her where your heart is.

“Your heart to mine, my heart to yours.
Talk about opening windows, talk about opening doors.
My heart to yours, your heart to mine, love is a light that shines from heart to heart.”
–John Denver Heart to Heart

Image

Maybe a very romantic digital artwork called Winter Wonderland.  That’s when Valentine’s Day lands,right when winter is at its deepest.

Image

Just a great time being together making the first tracks in the gently falling snow.  Making plans and dreaming together.

Or just maybe give her a hint of spring with these wonderful hand embroidered pillowcases.  These will take the chill away and give pleasant dreams of the spring to come.

Image

So stop by the Boutique (ADKartsBoutique on Etsy  https://www.etsy.com/shop/ADKArtsBoutique ) and find the gifts that mean so much.

These are just a few of my favorites but there is so much more to enjoy.  Gifts for all your special occasions done with an Adirondack flare.
