Items in the pipeline...Aprons and Pillows and more!

Our April Giveaway is a wrap! Congrats to all our winners!

The Tea Towel category is LIVE! Full disclaimer...it's live but still under construction.

The kitties and horses aren't up yet. And there are a few popular breed options missing as well. But never fear...if you know we have a certain design and you can't find it on a towel you can still order it.

Just pick any towel and tell us what design you really want either in the personalizing text box on the product page or in the special instructions at checkout. And don't worry - you'll get to approve the layout to make sure we got it right!

More dogs in the kitchen! Back by popular demand...Fur Children Aprons!

We finally found a worthy replacement to our apron of yore. It's made from a poly/cotton linen weave fabric that prints and washes beautifully. All our Fur Children breed designs are available in jaunty chefs' hats. (and if you don't like jaunty, we'll do them without by special order).

We'll be setting up a pre-order page very soon...samples are at the photographer's studio (yeah, our photo isn't awesome to say the least)...but it will take awhile for a full category to post. (remember the tea towels?)

Coming soon to a sofa or love-seat near you - Decorative Throw Pillows - because your dog always wants to be on the couch.

We're starting this intro with custom pillows. Our designs are available also by request. The pillow cover is made from the same fabric as our aprons and is removable for cleaning. (did we say it launders and prints beautifully?) It's about 15.5x15.5 square and the poly-fill insert is USA made.

But wait there's more...we have placemats, napkins and tote bags all in the pipeline. If you have preferences on what you'd like to see first, let us know. We might even choose you to give an item a test drive!

So almost halfway through the year, we've got a LOT on our plate. Be sure to sign up to our newsletter for notifications about these upcoming pre-order sales, future product launches and other special events.

The Best Laid Plans of Dogs and Artists

We started 2018 with a grand plan to reintroduce our aprons and towels. (We know you've been asking for them.) We investigated (and invested in) a method to print them in house that's different from our usual process. This method would allow us to use the very versatile cotton flour sack towel and a readily available [...]
