Modern Meets Vintage



A new batch of Downtown Bags are being created and should be available in my shop next week or sooner. Posted above was the last one in my shop that sold last week. The Downtown Bag is the perfect size for everyday use. It's design is modern with a hint of vintage.  Two exterior pockets and two interior pockets keep things organized. A magnetic snap on the flap keeps the bag closed. I like to finish them off with vintage buttons from my stash for a unique one-of-a-kind look. It also gives the bag a more vintage feel which I love. They will be available in 100% linen and linen/cotton blend fabric. I also plan to introduce two other designs over the next few weeks, a pleated messenger and a larger pleated shoulder bag. I add new items to my shop regularly so check back often!

Home Sweet Home

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC. 
I'm eager to get back to designing and creating and have lots of new ideas I can't wait to get started on. 

Above is a shot of Millie, a wonderful coworker back in New York, modeling the Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchel. Wish I had her here for my next photo shoot!

Time

My work pictured on the left has taken time away from my work on the right. Spending free time these days with friends and walks on the beach.


Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

On March 27th I got a call from a producer of CBS Sunday Morning News letting me know that they are doing a feature on America's handmade economy and want to feature some of my bags on the set. I was quite excited. I dropped off some of my handbags at the studio that day. Posted above is my security entrance card. My first name is spelled wrong and my head is turned to the side because the producer asked me a question just as the security guard was taking the photo. I was allowed in the building with my profile shot so all was well. 

The CBS feature was broadcast nationally today. I was not at home and only had access to a small portable black and white TV with so so reception. Yes, rabbit ears. In the opening shot, CBS Sunday Morning News anchor Charles Osgood points to my handbags for about a second. he he  But I am still honored that they chose my bags from the th…
