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!

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!
