It all started with a nail

History of the shop:

It all started with a nail, right next to my door.
Whenever I get home, I hang my keychain there.
One day, without notice, the nail simply fell out, leaving an ugly big hole in the wall.
My first reaction was to put the nail back in, reattach the keychain. But the nail just didn't want to hold anymore. Then not. Since I didn't feel like punching my whole wall now, I decided to just do without the hanging possibility for my keys.
Who needs key hooks, really. It's also possible without it.

But whenever I came home, I reflexively wanted to hang my keychain in its old place. But there was nothing left to hang on. That really annoyed me over time and since I am a sculptor and passionate about carving, it quickly became clear: I'm carving something for myself.
Something that puts me in a good mood when I take it in my hand and leave the house.

And that's how my first little figure came into being: a cat perched on a pillow.
I just like the idea that someone has to get up from their pillow when I leave the house early.
And my key again has a place where it belongs.

My son had the idea for the Etsys shop.
But it all started with a nail.
