Where have you been all my life?...

I've been searching for oil burners/diffusers for a while now... I recently purchased a few great essential oils (eucalyptus, peppermint and vanilla...)
To be honest, I'm not very fond of the oil burners available out there... I tried and tried to like them or find something simple with not too many moons and stars (no offense, i love moons and stars)... Sadly, nothing appealed to me... until...
i came across this "tart" warmer on ebay:

and I was the lucky winner!
So I went to their (redwing) website and discovered that I can get it in different designs and shapes!
I want it all!!! warmers, pitchers, bowls, everything! :)

The Four Seasons on Limoges

ahhh, Limoges...
if you know me, you know of my obsession with Limoges porcelain.
i'm very happy to be able to apply my drawings on these beauties...

the four seasons set above has sold!

tomorrow (monday 11/24) i'll be posting another set of Limoges berry bowls.
the ones above were T&Vs, the next ones will be Havilands.

last four limoges berry bowls under my possession, until i find some more...

It's now 9:20 pm est.
baileydoesntbark has been released from captivity! (...yay...)
rejinlee is still under negotiations...

What I've done so far:
1) Followed all of these instructions:
i. Downloaded ClamXav
and scanned every single thing in this computer, including my website folders.
ii. Downloaded LittleSnitch
(to be completely honest with you, i have a very blurred idea of what it does because i'm computer illiterate. as long as it says it helps. i'm down.)

2) Created a master password and turned on the FileVault I had NO idea existed.

3) Changed all my passwords.

Mind you, I probably deleted files I shouldn't have but whatever came up in my search when I typed in the bunch of letters/numbers/symbols these websites list to delete, I TRASHED FOREVER.

What I've NOT done so far:
1) Go to the post office to ship orders. sorry guys.... one day delay :(

2) Work on new designs.

3) Be productive.

I recommend everybody who owns a MAC to run a virus scan once in a while (since we never do, relying on the fact that MACs are safe).

I've been hacked twice and this proves to me that either:
1) I have amnesia and clicked on obvious virus infected links, banners, websites and forgot about it.
2) ... I don't know, I forgot!


p.s. if you are aware of any help for mac users to prevent this from happening, please let us know!

(please note: i DO NOT claim that the information i'm giving out is the solution and/or prevention. PLEASE research. i'm only sharing my experience.)


As you may know,
both my websites:
baileydoesntbark and rejinlee,
have been hacked...

Apparently my websites were "injected" with "malware". What they did was install a key logger in my computer (?!?) to have access to everything I type. i.e. passwords!!!!!!! That way, they got my FTP password and "injected" these "malwares" into my websites. grrrrr.

There's something about GOOGLE (unintentionally) being a source of the virus/hack attack as well. BEWARE of weird links on Google search page. (I read that there was a "google tips" link right under the search box and that lead to bad sites.)

Everything has been removed, fixed, altered and protected from my end and my hosts (which by the way, did not help me very much... this is the second host i'm trying... it's not very fun to switch hosts and i would love not to have to go thru that again)...
Now, I'm just waiting for GOOGLE
that HORRIBLE warning page OFF my website. (Google, do you hear me?)

The frustrating part is that I don't know how long that will take. I managed to speak with one person from Google in Chicago since the headquarters makes it impossible to reach a REAL person. But she had NO IDEA how to help me (to be fair, she tried: thank you!).

I apologize for those who have tried to visit my website and have encountered the warning page.
According to the google webmaster, my websites have not passed on any virus.
However, if you are concerned, run a virus scan, and if you own a mac like me (which makes it harder to find info to fix these sort of things, since mac is supposedly: untouchable) check out ClamXav.

Anyway, I'm terrible at these things: computer technical terms, virus and/or hacker words, etc etc. 
I'm probably confusing you.
If you're concerned,
google (ahah, how ironic) 2009 antivirus.
You'll find better explanations.

My websites are labeled : "bad" 

I ask that you're patient and hopefully this will be solved in a timely manner.
Thank you very much for all your support.

P.S. Dear Hackers, what's the point? 

Mr. Rat's Silhouette Portrait

So, Mr. Rat says he is very into the silhouette portrait trend.
He adds, I'm also quite fond of {vintage} porcelain!

I say, Well well Mr. Rat, why not a silhouette portrait of you on a beautiful vintage plate!

Mr. Rat grins and happily says: Well well... why not?


My website right now looks like this:




I had to manually delete the "malicious" files and just downloaded ClamXav.
I also had to change my passwords to my FTP's.

Do not worry if you have visited my site recently. It did not pass on any virus and wont as all has been cleaned out. (The notice may still appear as google is reviewing it as we speak)
No wonder every time I updated my site, it would switch words all the time... like someone was playing a game with me. i.e. I write "apple"... on the site appears "banana"...

GET OFF MY BACK, you hacker f... (sorry for the language, i'm so angry.)

I did not click on anything suspicious or any Anti Virus removal banner/ad... 
I have no idea how they managed to get in...

r e g r e t s

so.... i'm starting to regret this so much... see those two sake bottles/ bud vases on the background? they were my first 'naked peacock feathers'. out of frustration or because i'm a "mentalist" (got that from gareth - the office) i destroyed them...

by the way,
Naked Peacock Feather Cup
comes with a free gift.
have a look!
