Greetings from Miami Beach!


Last Tuesday my partner Tom and I left NYC to embark on a road trip to Florida. Along the way we made lots of stops. One of my favorite places so far was Savannah, Georgia. The city is just beautiful with Spanish moss hanging from trees everywhere and quaint looking homes. I could picture myself living there. One of the most adventerous places we visited was Juniper Springs Park in Ocala, Florida. We rented a canoe and paddled 7 miles along a narrow river surrounded with lush vegetation and overhanging trees that required us to duck on many occassions. At one point we paddled by an alligator that growled at us!

Well, yesterday we arrived in Miami Beach! We spent the entire day walking along the beach and exploring the area. The ocean is absolutely beautiful here. Today we plan to visit the Florida Everglades. When I return from my trip I'll post lots of photos and I'll even have a giveaway. Stay tuned!

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…
