Horse Farms and Front Pagers


I was so inspired by my recent road trip that took me through all the beautiful horse farms located in Ocala, Florida, that I had to create a handbag to celebrate this majestic animal. Ocala is a city in Marion County, Florida, USA. Marion County is one of the major thoroughbred centers of the world, with over 1,200 horse farms in total and about 600 thoroughbred farms. While driving by these beautiful farms I told my partner that I would love to have a home on a couple of acres with some horses. My partner, who grew up with horses, quickly made sure that I was aware of all that work that is involved with taking care of a horse and how much food they eat. It did not take me long to snap out of my day dream! 


Also, today my Wayfarer Purse in Chartreuse made it to Etsy's front page! It was created by an Etsy administrator using the search term "lime green."  I had so many of my Etsy friends write to me and let me know. Thanks guys! I feel very lucky to have meet so many wonderful people through Etsy.  :)

Love the horse purse! It's funny, I put a horse collage up on my blog today, too.
That is an amazing coincidence Kjersten!

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!
