We're Bringing Lucky Back . . .

We're bringing Lucky back . . .


 . . . Lucky Cat, that is!


We've brought back a mini collection of Lucky Cat pendants to IndyAndCleo! Hooray!


Know the legend of the Lucky Cat?


Lucky Cat, or Maneki~neko (Japanese, literally "beckoning cat") is a common Japanese figurine, lucky charm or talisman which is often believed to bring good luck to the owner. 

The figurine depicts a cat (traditionally a calico Japanese Bobtail) beckoning with an upright paw, and is usually displayed ~often at the entrance~ of shops, restaurants, pachinko parlors, and other businesses. The maneki~neko is sometimes also called the welcoming cat, lucky cat, money cat, happy cat, beckoning cat, or fortune cat in English.



Lucky Cat handmade Scrabble Tile Pendant






















And so, the story goes . . .



Maneki~neko is the subject of a number of folktales.
Following, is one of the most popular explaining the cat's origin ~

The stray cat and the shop: The operator of an impoverished shop takes in a starving, stray cat despite barely having enough to feed himself. In gratitude, the cat takes up a station outside the establishment and beckons in new visitors, bringing prosperity as a reward to the charitable proprietor. Ever after, the "beckoning cat" has been a symbol of good luck for small business owners.

Sooooo . . . if you find you need an extra bit of good luck, or just plain love Lucky Cat, IndyAndCleo has just the little lucky charm for you!

❉ Each Lucky Cat Scrabble Tile Pendant is sold separately.

❉ Thank you Wikipedia Maneki~neko for portions of this post.

You Look Positively Radiant . . . Radiant Orchid, that is . . .

...Orchid Hues will Brighten any Day!


























Familiar with Pantone? Not sure you say?

Pantone is the global authority on color: inspiring artists, designers, and stylists to color the world. Each year Pantone selects a Color of the Year, and the Pantone Color of the Year 2014 (I believe most everyone knows by now), is Radiant Orchid.

Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence . . . intrigues the eye and sparks imagination. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid exudes great joy, love and health.

So, go on, be positively radiant . . . Radiant Orchid, that is!


Cheers and thank you 2Sisters2Gether for curating the radiant Etsy Treasury above featuring Lillibeth the Sockmonkey!

Strike a Pose!

 

Monkey model Hammy definitely lives up to his name!


His enthusiasm in front of a camera and/or a live audience is inescapable! He wants to be an actor and has been told his acting is quite exaggerated and overly theatrical ~ he rehearses each day while noshing a ham & swiss on rye! . . . exit stage left!

Hammy is the newest member of the sock monkey troop currently featured on indyandcleo ~ each adorable monkey comes with it's own personal mini bio highlighted on an Adoption Certificate suitable for framing and admiring! . . . Hooray!

In the Works


A bit of trivia for you ~


Q: What do you call a group of monkeys?
A: A group of monkeys is called a cartload, tribe, troop, troupe or mission.

Bet you didn't know that, right?

.  .  .  .  .  .  .  .

I am very grateful and thankful to all of you that have loved and purchased my handmade sock monkeys in 2013! They have been shipped all across the United States, Canada and even Australia! Each and every sock monkey has gone to a loving home and I know are being very well taken care of, which makes me tickled pink!

A brand new year ~ 2014 will bring a whole new "troop" of lovable sock monkeys to my Etsy shop IndyAndCleo, and some are even in the works right now . . . so keep a watchful lookout! ✿
