Shades of Spring

If you are wondering why there aren't any appliques on my new purses, I decided to create a few without. This week I worked on bags in linen and cotton in gorgeous springtime shades and lined them with pretty interior cotton print fabric. The Jewel Cut Purse above is made from a upholstery weight basket weave linen in deep pink and lined with a cherry blossom print cotton fabric. There are two interior pockets and a key clip to keep things organized. Pictured below is my Wayfarer Purse in a cornflower blue basket weave cotton. The interior is lined with the cutest owl print cotton fabric. In the next hour or so I'll be adding four new bags to the shop. Next week I'll have more warm weather inspired creations so stay tuned!

The colors are just...yummy! And I really love the bags without appliques. I think the beautiful buttons you chose for them are all that you need. And this is coming from a button expert :)

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…
