Mimi Green, Jonathan Papelbon, MSPCA and Gucci?? Say what?!

This month we had the honor of dressing a dog for the fashion show at the MSPCA-Angell Animal Tales Gala.  The Gala raised a whopping $481,000 for Boston's MSPCA!

 Not only did we get to dress sweet Lucille in the fashion show, but Red Sox pitcher Jonathan Papelbon and his wife Ashley waked her down the runway!

Boston's WCVB’s news reporter and anchor, Randy Price announced, 

First we welcome Red Sox pitcher Jonathan Papelbon and his wife Ashley walking the beautiful Lucille, whose accessories tonight are by Mimi Green and Gucci.

Excuse me, were the words "Mimi Green" and "Gucci" used in the same sentence?!?! Heck yes they were! And to top it off "Jonathan Papelbon" too!!??

Here's Lucille with the shelter staff. The MSPCA does great work for animals in their community and we felt so happy and honored to be able to help in the small way we did.

I found the most awesome scarf tutorial on lilibeth’s garden

for the sweetest winter scarf. Here's the one I made:

Awesome, right?  Now if I just could figure out how to make them for dogs… My Cessie gets very cold this time of year!

New for 2009 — Mimi Doggie T Shirts!

Hello! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. My time off went by way to fast and I am already back to work making a bunch of new items for 2009.

This is a silly shot of Cessie in the new Mimi Green Doggie T. They are 100% cotton, made in Costa Rica, and hand embroidered right here in the Mimi studio.

I'd love some feedback on the T. I am thinking of dying them but am not sure of what color!

Rhapsody in Blue Dog Collar

Today I was inspired. KNME had a show on about young composers and musicians and I was so moved while watching it that I think I came up with a new super cool collar design. Fittingly, I named it "Rhapsody in Blue".

I've been waiting to make a Limited Edition Collar in a boyish color. I just couldn't find a fabric that moved me. Then this : linen colored with blue polkadot flowers. Perfection. Then I hand beaded the petals with the tiniest beads, they look so delicate, but really they aren't I had to run the collar through all the buckles after I beaded it, didn't effect the beads. Then I ran the sewing machine over them to sew it to the webbing and not a one flew off. Awesome. It will work on Cessie even though she is constantly scratching around her collar. rhapsody in blue dog collar

I think I will make 25 'Rhapsodys" so get them while you can. They will be on Etsy for $22.50.

Banana Republic Ring Switch-a-Roo

Totally loving this shot that Dan took of my Key Wristlet. See how it stays on? I don't know what I have done without it my whole life.

I also love how my new ring looks in this photo– I can't believe how awesome it is! Yes, I wear a different wedding ring everyday. I can't commit to just one and we didn't get married in a church where the rings were blessed, so really, what is wrong with wanting them to match my outfit? Dan doesn't seem to mind, he was pretty nuts about this new ring too.

And you will never believe it, I sure didn't, but it is from Banana Republic.  I find lots of my switch-a-roos there, they look so expensive and people are constantly complimenting me on them. Plus Banana is having a major sale right now, wait till you see the bracelet I got for $13!

Last photo of how it doesn't fall off– and I have tiny hands.
