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 :)

Build Your Own Purse

I've been working on creating a listing in my shop that will allow my customer to "build" their own purse. I am playing around with a lot of different ideas at the moment. The listing will include a choice of exterior fabric in several colors with a selection of coordinating cotton print fabric to choose for the interior of the purse. There will be a selection of my applique designs to choose from such as cherry blossoms, a bird on a branch, seahorses and more. I think my custom listing will be a great addition to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. If you have any ideas or suggestions I would love to hear from you. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

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!

Souvenirs from a Road Trip Giveaway!

That's me in Miami Beach, Florida!


I'm back from a fantastic road trip around the South East, USA!  My partner and I started in NYC and went south on Interstate 95 down to Miami Beach, Florida. We made many stops along the way to amble about and see the sites. In honor of this wonderful trip I decided to have a Giveaway! The Giveaway will be my Saddle Bag, pictured to your left, filled with a few souvenirs ( a surprise!) from my trip. To enter the giveaway all you need to do is follow my blog and post a comment about your favorite vacation at the end of this post.  That's it! I'll pick one winner at random (I will use random.org) this coming Monday. Good luck!
