Whimsical Prints and More

I've been working on a new collection of purses made from whimsical prints. The Wayfarer Purse above is made from a cool retro-look owl print in cotton canvas. The purse below is made from a gorgeous Annie Selke blue and cream print in linen and rayon. Both of these purses are now available at the Pesky Cat Designs shop.

I also added a few new Jewel Cut Purses in Harris Tweed and one in corduroy. And if you like messengers, there's a new Everyday Messenger in Brown with a sweet flower applique. More to follow!


Welcome Elisa :)

Dear Elisa, both bags are very beautiful - but the one with the owls is just gorgeous! Your fabric choices are always very successful! It is so nice to see you back working, and enjoying the new part in your life!

I really like these, the owls caught my eye especially. What is it about these little creatures with the big alluring eyes that draws us in? Both of these designs are a great addition to your line. Glad to hear you're getting settled in, I look fwd to keeping up with each other more regularly again! Hugs, Leslie
I love both of them--and I'd wear them both! That aerial view of St. Augustine is incredible--the lighthouse--sigh!

Amazing new bags, I love the pastel colours of the canvas patterns!
Hats off for having finished so many handbags and settling in the new place at the same time - a change of environment certainly gives wings to creativity!

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!

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…
