I may be a broad, but I’m a broad with good taste. I may talk tough, but when it comes to my home you’ll see that I surround myself with stuff that I love. OK, so you might find the odd party favor or two hanging around, a girl’s gotta live you know. There’s ONE thing that you must know retro makes my heart go all aflutter (just take a look at the broads on our header and you’ll understand), so when I was approached by Catstudio, to take a look at their pillows, glasses, etc. I got VERY excited.
From the moment that I set eyes on their website there was no doubt that I would fall in love with Catstudio‘s Geography collection of glasses, pillows, dish towels, etc. (they also offer aprons, totes and trays).
The pillows (I have a New York one on the guest bed), are hand embroided works of original art. One of these would make a great Mother’s Day gift for any mom who wants to remember her home town or a favorite vacation spot (or even a place she’s always DREAMED of going). At $155 each, the price may seem a bit steep, but considering the work that goes into each of these pieces of art and the YEARS of enjoyment you’ll get each time you look at them, they’re well worth the price.
I was also sent a couple of drinking glasses to check out. These frosted 15 oz. tumblers are illustrated with the classic hot spots in each city, state and region and you’re be sure to recognize them.
For example: I have a New York glass that includes a Yellow Cab, Madison Square Garden, Battery Park, Fulton St. Fish Market and LOTS more that give these glasses the look and feel of souvenir glasses from decades past. I love the fact that I can purchase my choice of City, State, Countries, Parks, or Region.
Seeing as I’ll be in NYC in a couple of weeks (see the sidebar for info), I’m preparing for my trip by drinking a TALL lemonade from my New York City glass. PACK? The heck with that, this gets me in the right frame of mind, I’ll pack later.
I’ve probably spent hours looking at their different glasses deciding which ones I want to purchase. Here’s what I’ve chosen – my FAVORITE country (France) as well as of my home state (RI), my new home (FL) and Martha’s Vineyard (our old summer haunt). At $12 a piece, these are a no brainer (minimum order of four). I can both display them as art as well as use them daily. Did I mention that they feature seven colors and matte gold on each glass?
For those of you into Aprons (and I know that a lot of people not only wear but collect these), they offer a culinary collection as well. Also available from Catstudio’s selection of art products are serving trays, TOTE BAGS and dish towels that offer the Geography collection (like the pillows and glasses). If you’re into the retro look like I am, you’ll go absolutely crazy for their items.
