A Crazy Week

Last week we had several things delay our move to St. Augustine, Florida but now we are finally moved into our new place.

I now have a huge studio space devoted just for Pesky Cat Designs. Our sweet kitty Anni was overwhelmed at first but now she enjoys climbing up and down the stairs of our home, something that she's never done since she's spent her entire life living in a one bedroom apartment.

I apologize for the delay in reopening the shop and for not being able to keep up with all your lovely blogs. At the moment we are still without internet service but hope to have everything up and running asap. I look forward to visiting all your blogs once my life is a little less hectic. See you soon!


Congratulations on your new home! I have been through St Augustine, and it is such a lovely little city--I am excited to hear about your experiences in the coming weeks!
You were missed! I'm glad everything fell into place for you after the initial glitch. Can't wait to hear more about your new studio and what you have planned for the shop!

Hey there Elisa, I came across your site thru Dawn's LaTouchables and when I saw that you are now living in St. Augustine, I had to be in touch. We lived there for almost four years, it really is a pretty place. I'd love to know where in the city you are, we were just a couple blocks from downtown.
Also, so loving your bags!
Beautiful work...all the best in your new home.
Sounds like you are very happy with your new home and city, wonderful!
Congrats and hope you'll have many happy years there :)

p.s. lots of pics of your new place, please :)

It sounds as if, given that you moved from NYC to beautiful, beachy Florida, things went pretty well. There are always unexpected (but really expected but unknown)delays when it comes to moving or building a home! It sounds like Anni took things pretty well in stride since a few days of anxious, unsure behavior is normal for animals & people alike. I'm sure you are both enjoying your new abodes! I hope so & I'm thrilled for you!

The Rainbow Bridge

Had to say goodbye to my sweet Anni this past Tuesday. She had been sick for several weeks and after my Vet confirmed that she would not get better only worse, I decided I could not let her suffer. So at around 2 pm she traveled to the rainbow bridge. She had been my buddy for more than 15 years.

When I first started sewing she would often sit right next to the sewing machine occasionally swatting at the lose thread at the end of my fabric. My partner walked by one day and said " Are you being a pesky little cat Anni?" That stayed in my mind so when it was time to name the shop, "Pesky Cat Designs" seemed perfect. She was actually far from pesky, with such a sweet and gentle demeanor.

I will never forget my little sweetie. She will be in my heart forever.


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!

10 Year Anniversary

October this year was Pesky Cat Designs 10 year Anniversary! Although I've had an outside job for all those years I always made time for my creative endeavors. I have a Bachelor of Science degree but did originally attend an university of the arts. I painted for many years and then later discovered my love for creating handbags. This month I had two sales from a customer that has purchased 18 handbags from my shop! It really made my day to realize I have so many loyal customers. They have made it possible for me to keep creating and doing what gives me so much joy!
