My Recent Finds

Today I want to share with you these unique and amazing shops I recently found on Etsy. I have so many favorites so it was hard to chose three to feature. Here they are!


I just love this business card holder by Hare and Drum! The main focus of this shop is on historically inspired creations. The shop features gorgeous handpainted and decoupaged wooden boxes, wall art, hand embroidery and more. The work is whimsical and beautiful. I recently placed an order for a custom wooden box and I can't wait to receive it!


Mitsy from Belgium, is the creative mind behind Art Mind.  Her shop is overflowing with unique artistic creations and her creativity never ceases to amaze me! Her latest project, 99 feelings, are a series of babushka's that she adds either texture or an addition to. It derives from a project she did many years ago reflecting her self- portrait. She called it "how the outside can tell how you feel inside." I recently purchased "Balance" from her shop and I can't wait to receive it. I plan to place it on a shelf above my sewing station to inspire balance and creativity in my life!



You can find the most beautiful felted creations at Ingermaaike's shop on Etsy. Inger is from Norway and she makes amazing jewelry, clothing, bags, and so much more from felt. The work is all handmade and one-of-a-kind. She even has another shop on Etsy, Ingersworld, that sells fantastic whimsical felted toys. Both her shops are filled with such gorgeous and unique items! 

I'll be posting more incredible Etsy finds in the weeks to come so stay tuned!

Thanks so much for fetauring 'balanced' Elisa! I'm as thrilled as you are for her to arrive to your home. I hope she will be loved and looked after and actually, I just know she will! :)
Please, remember it was me who opened the box again to add a note - don't blame your postman! LOL :)

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!

My One Second of Fame

I had my one second of fame today! I was hoping for the 15 minutes promised by Andy Warhol but I can't complain. 

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…
