Cool Cat Wreaths for Christmas!

Cat Wreath by Kathy Morawski of Mystic Mare

Early order reservations are already being taken on Cat Wreaths for the holidays so reserve your Limited Edition Cat Wreaths now!

Last year many customers were disappointed when my wreaths had already been sold out by the time they tried to place an order. My handcrafted wreaths always sell out fast as I can only make a limited number of them. To guarantee wreaths for yourself or as Christmas gifts this year it is highly recommended to reserve your orders now here or at my Mystic Mare Etsy shop. Early reservations made now are also currently at last year’s prices! Any orders that may be left to be accepted later in the fall will be at the new higher 2015 prices. So save time, money and hassle and guarantee that your wreaths will arrive in plenty of time for the holidays!

Inspired by my own adopted rescue cats, these wreaths convey class, style and are the real deal! Great for the home, the barn (barn cats rule!), animal rescues and clinics – anywhere can be livened up with a festive holiday kitty! They make great gifts for cat lovers, vets and animal rescues too!

Don’t be fooled by imitators, these are the ORIGINAL feline versions of my SAME popular wreaths that were featured on Counter-Canter Culture and on the cover of Northwest Rider Magazine! As a professional, I have been making wreaths for years and handcraft each one myself with the high quality materials and standards my customers expect (and deserve!)

Wreaths are made of assorted artificial pines and are wired together (not glued!) to ensure security and to last for many years of fine holiday decorating. The tail is accented with real pine cones, and the collar and bow is created with fine high quality wired ribbon. Wreaths measure approximately 12″ wide by 22″ tall and a wire loop on the back allows for easy hanging from a nail or an over the door wreath hanger. If ordering two wreaths, they can also be made as a facing pair, which look great on double front doors!

Don’t miss out this year for the holidays! These are a limited edition and they always sell out early — so reserve yours now! My original Friesian inspired horse head wreaths can also be seen here. Don’t delay as Christmas will be here before you know it!

Tribute to Skip

KathyMorawskiSkip

I realized I hadn’t posted here since saying farewell to my beloved older horse Skip. He let me know it was his time to go and saying goodbye to my best friend for the past nine years was one of the most difficult things I’d ever done. I am forever grateful to this horse who had literally saved my life. Skip’s smart, quirky personality made for lots of laughter and people worldwide knew of his antics from Facebook — he even had a fan club in Australia! I know I won’t be the only one who misses him.

I’d adopted Skip shortly after my mom’s passing and was so numb with grief I vowed never to love anything or anyone again. Skip had Cushings, was already in his 20’s, his owner had just died, and he was homeless and depressed. I think we were meant to heal together. Just the two of us trail riding was our favorite thing to do together. It was my therapy during the following difficult years dealing the illnesses and deaths of my mom, last grandparent and then my dad. And he taught me to love and care again.

In his later years, after Skip couldn’t be ridden, he was allowed to freely roam throughout the barn and its surroundings and became the official barn greeter. He knew all the entrances and gates around the barn and could be sneaky — he’d wander into the indoor arena to take afternoon naps in the shavings pile and he once opened a gate and entered the arena in the middle of a Craig Cameron clinic!

I am forever grateful for the nine wonderful years of love and laughter we had together. He will always be with me and taught me so much that it carries on in my relationship with my mare Bobbi now. A friend recently said something about Skip in a way I never thought of — that so many horses just live in the horse world but Skip was a great horse who understood humans. It’s true, the bond between Skip & I transcends species.

Me&Skip

“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love.”
― Washington Irving

The Lord of All Horses

"The Lord of All Horses" by Kathy Morawski, hand carved 10" x 22.5" x 1.5"

The Lord of All Horses, Kathy Morawski, 10″ x 22.5″ x 1.5″

I’ll admit, I’m a huge Lord of the Rings fan… umm, Aragorn and Faramir and horses, oh my, what’s not to love?! Lately I’d been creating many stone-like carvings and 3D reliefs and thought a piece that looked as if it had belonged in the era of Rohan would be perfect for my home.  Then others wanted a tribute for themselves so I’m now offering a rare set of limited edition tribute plaques. These are not castings or reproductions — each plaque is completely hand-made and an original work of art made to honor the greatest of the Mearas, the most exceptional horses. Limited editions of The Lord of All Horses for Shadowfax, LOTR and Rohan fans are available at eBay or Etsy. I’m only offering a limited number of plaques so first come first served!

Gandalf: Shadowfax. He is the lord of all horses and has been my friend through many dangers.

NEW Forever-green Friesian Horse Head Wreaths!

Friesian inspired Horse Head Wreath now made with artificial materials

Friesian inspired Horse Head Wreaths can now be made with artificial materials to last for many years or to display year round!

Introducing artificial pine Friesian Horse Head Wreaths!

My real pine Friesian inspired Horse Head Wreaths from last year were an instant hit! They were featured by the wicked cool Counter-Canter Culture website, graced a global holiday newsletter of Nanric, an equine podiatry company, and were even on the front cover of NorthWest Rider Magazine! They were so popular they quickly sold out! Many people had asked if I could make them with artificial materials so they could be used for many years — and after much experimenting, the answer is now YES! But I only have time to make these now and there is a limit to how many artificial wreaths I can fit into my schedule! Christmas may seem far away, but I’ll be too busy later in the year to make these and I’ll only be making the live pine Horse Head Wreaths then!

Just like my original fresh pine wreaths, these long lasting artificial ones are inspired by my Friesian mare and I custom create each wreath by hand. Every horse is one-of-a-kind and made with love, attention to detail and portrays an air of holiday elegance. They are great for the home, barn or tack rooms – and make unique gifts for horse lovers, trainers and barn owners! And now they can be used over and over again every year! Some people even keep them on display all year long!

These are popular and there is a limit to how many I can create, so ordering now will avoid disappointment. For more details and to order, see them here at my Mystic Mare Etsy shop or order directly from me here!

Thanks!

Early Bird Horse Head Wreath Savings!

Horsehead Wreath

My festive Friesian inspired Horse Head Wreaths made with fresh REAL pine!

It’s never too early to get a head start on the holidays! Due to the overwhelming response these fresh pine wreaths generated last year, for this year I’m creating all nonperishable parts ahead of time. That way I won’t be as overloaded as I was last year and can supply the wreaths a little earlier in the season to you guys!

I know many of you are sick of snow and aren’t thinking of Christmas right now but since this will help me organize more efficiently I will offer everyone who reserves a wreath now that they will get it at last year’s price! So all deposits received now will guarantee a wreath at last year’s price and wreaths will start shipping in late Nov. through Dec. to last throughout the entire winter season. The horse wreath I hung on my front door last November still looks as good now! I can only make a limited number of wreaths and these completely SOLD OUT FAST last year and WILL cost more if you wait until the fall to order — IF I still have any available then! To avoid disappointment, early orders are highly recommended! For more info and to reserve your wreath(s) contact me below:
