Autumn is Here!


Yesterday Autumn officially arrived here in NYC while the weather remained summer-like. Today the temperature is 81F and I ran my morning errands wearing a light t-shirt, jeans and my comfortable Wolky sandals. I went to go to the UPS store, the Union Square Farmers Market and the hardware store. After arriving home I realized I also need cat litter, cat food and groceries. One of the disadvantages of living in the city is that you have to carry all your groceries home since driving and parking is such a hassle. The advantage to living in the city is that you can order anything you want by phone or on the internet, including groceries and have them delivered to your home in an hour! So I ordered everything I needed and waited patiently for all to arrive by eco-friendly bicycle. Now Anni has her essentials and my partner and I have groceries for dinner. Tom is already cooking the brussel sprouts, my favorite. I didn't get much done in the studio today but I did add two new handbags to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. The shoulder bag posted above was a little experiment with a new design. I think it's a perfect bag to celebrate the fall season with!

Enjoy your Autumn glorious colours!
Love the bag!

How cool is it that you can order those things and have them delivered like that. Is it terribly expensive to have them delivered?
Thanks for your comments everyone. :)

Whimsical Creations- The pet store has free delivery and the grocery store is $2.95 for delivery. I do tip the delivery man in each case so it can get expensive. So it's not sometime I do on a daily basis although I would like to!

I never heard of someone who called brussel sprouts a favorite! Usually I hear people hating them :) Handy that you can call for groceries, ahhh wish we had that too!
Gorgeous bag as always!

I like that new bag very much. There's also a pretty pumpkin colored corduroy on your website, looks like a tote with a flap closure and someone is carrtyin it. Love that bag. Maybe it's the same as here just a different color?
I agree, this bag is perfect! The leaf design is too lovely.

Your creativity is to be treasured!
Brussel sprouts are a favourite of one of my sons too, but the other kids won't look at them :)

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!

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…
