A New Bag in Town

Yes, there's a new bag in town! It's quite big at 15.5" wide, 12" tall and 3.5" deep. Large and sturdy enough to carry books, a laptop and more. Three layers of interface, two fusible and one thick layer of ultra firm peltex, give the bag lots of structure and durability. Three interior pockets and a pen slip keep things organized. It's made from honey yellow corduroy and adorned by two oak leaf appliques. Just perfect for the upcoming fall season! I'll be adding it to my shop along with a couple of more new handbags later this afternoon.

A great bag, in more than one sense!
I'm sure it won't be long before it finds it's way to the front page...

I love big and boxy type bags! They can easily take on the role of purse and diaper bag! I refuse to carry two bags around...so, this is just the kind of bag I look for...with dividers and pockets.

Beautiful!

Fantastic! I love oversize bags. And who might the model be?

This bag is fabulous Elisa! Plenty of room to tote all your goodies and I *love* the oak leaves. Fall is just around the corner (hint, hint to all the purse loving shoppers out there)

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!

Time

My work pictured on the left has taken time away from my work on the right. Spending free time these days with friends and walks on the beach.


Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

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…
