Tweet Purrkoy, the kitten with the heart-shaped nose, would like to wish you a happy Valentine’s Day. There’s no place PK would rather spend Valentine’s Day than in the bathroom sink. It’s his favorite spot. (When he wants the faucet turned on so he can take a drink, he yodels for a human.) What are […]

Tweet When I come home from parties, having indulged in a little Champagne, I like to make the pets pose for selfies with me.  Purrkoy the kitten is a frequent victim of my tipsy affection because he’s easier to grab than speedy cat FitzRoy and smells better than Gigi the dog.

Tweet MrB and I watched the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line this weekend. FitzRoy the cat heard the song “Get Rhythm” for the first time and he loved it!

Tweet This month, Pantone named “Marsala” as the color of the year for 2015, describing it as a “robust and earthy wine red.” As always, there was criticism of Pantone’s choice, but I like the color because it reminds me of garnets. This fall, I designed a garnet stud and ear jacket combo featuring FitzRoy […]

Tweet I was looking for Purrkoy the kitten recently. FitzRoy, his older cat brother, was like, “Kitten? What kitten? We have a kitten?” I think Fitz is tired of PK’s big butt blocking his view of the pigeons.

Tweet Because this Throwback Thursday is also the day before Halloween, allow me to present — again — one of my all-time favorite pumpkin carvings: 2011’s Rick Ross Rap-O-Lantern. As a jewelry designer, I had mad love for rapper Rick Ross’s diamond depictions of his own face, so I flipped out when I saw the […]

Tweet FitzRoy and Purrkoy — my exotic shorthair kittehs — met two of their out-of-town fans this weekend.  “Stratsquam” (Kelli) and “WitnessTheThickness” (Aaron) are a lovely young couple who attended medical school together and who came to New York to interview for a residency. They’re also two of FitzRoy’s most ardent Instagram followers. Last week, […]
