Poo Poo Pee Do

Posted on 26. Feb, 2012 by .


Maison de Toilette is such an elegant name for the place where the cats poop, but how about Poo Poo Pee Do! I’m ever so excited by this name alone, but wait until you see these egg shaped litterboxes! Very similar to the pEi pod egg-shaped beds except they come in two interlocking shells, with a […]

Have you met Miss Jones?

Posted on 05. Jan, 2012 by .


I love all these quirky pieces by Jennifer Jones. From cat feeders and vases to lamps and figurines each item has been created from white bone china and would sit very nicely in any pet loving home. And if you don’t want a dog or cat, don’t worry there are cabbages, phones and bunnies too […]

I absolutely love this card with Wilma on the front! Searching further I then discovered these napkin rings created by artist Rae Dunn. All handmade, the Lets Eat range comes in a lovely printed muslin bag and each ring is stamped with SIT, STAY, SPEAK, and BEG. I completely agree with Rae, your dog’s favourite commands work well […]

It’s been a very long summer without them and I for one have been very excited waiting for our friends, the Pretty Fluffy team Serena and Soda, to return. Pretty Fluffy’s guide for the modern dog owner will be bringing us everything that […]

All in all it’s been a bit of a quirky week under the blanket, so to finish the week with Finger Food Delight seems the right thing to do. Every time I go to this Etsy shop it seems the artist has created a few more of these cute little trinkets. It could be that […]

cat nose

Not to be sniffed at…

Posted on 17. Mar, 2011 by .


Poppet’s nose has always been one of my favourite things about her! As with most grey Tabby cats it is very distinct in that it looks like it has been outlined in mascara. Posh Poppet always walks around with her nose in the air and looking very elegant so when I saw these cat and […]

Best of British to ya

Posted on 11. Mar, 2011 by .


I love spending time going around the Cox and Cox online shop, they always have very unique items that you wish you had! Take this doggy doorstop for instance, and maybe it is because I’m British, but I would love to be propping the doors open this summer with this little guy. Aaaaand of course if […]

I’ve been checking around for pet related gifts and found that there is an abundance of them, but I loved these items I saw on Anthropologie. From brass hooks and book ends to picture frames and pet beds, there’s a great choice! I have to say though, these little hand-finished cast iron Westies are a […]

Pirates on Parade

Posted on 29. Oct, 2010 by .


Feeling a little peeved at not being able to dress up Milly and Poppet for Halloween, or even to parade them in any kind of fancy costume, I thought there must be others out there that have Halloween envy. So, if you can’t dress up your dog here are some ‘tough’ looking pirate collars from […]
