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.

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!

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 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…
