I'm Back!



I'm back from my trip to St. Augustine Beach, Fl. We stayed at a hotel just yards away from Anastasia State Park, which includes more than 1,600 acres featuring four miles of pristine beach, a tidal salt marsh, and a maritime and upland hammock. There is also an archaeological site where coquina rock was mined to create the nearby fortress, Castillo de San Marcos National Monument. You can enjoy camping, beachcombing, swimming, picnicking, windsurfing, hiking, biking, wildlife viewing, boating and more. A self-guided nature trail guides hikers through a maritime hammock on ancient sand dunes. The weather was perfect, high 80's and sunny, so we were out and about everyday.

Now that I'm back I'm a busy bee working on several new projects. I'll tell you all about them very soon. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead!

What a beautiful beach and I like your story about Annie-Penelope and Magellan are both rescue kitties-we have had a busy morning-P. has discovered the kitchen counter-I have a cutting board and she was going from the table to the cutting board onto the counter-now she has realized that she does not need the table to get to the cutting board-I cannot tell you how many times I have taken her off the counter. She does not need the cutting board either-but she does not know that.

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…
