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!

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!

The Pesky Cat's Day Dream

Katzenhohle by Dornroeschen Filzunikate I recently came across this incredible cat bed made by German artist Dornroeschen Filzunikate. This beautiful piece of functional art called a Katzenhohle , cat cave, is handmade of felted wool. It's definitely the most unique cat bed I have ever seen. It would bring a bit of nature into my urban NYC home. I think my Anni would love a cat cave although her favorite spots right now are the pillow behind my head in bed, a straw basket that was meant to store magazines and a storage box made from fabric that becomes a hammock when she sleeps in it. My sweet Anni FOX 5 Update : A while back I wrote a post about a story that Fox 5 news was doing on Etsy and the handmade market. I was interviewed in my studio as part of the feature. An Etsy press agent recently informed me that the story aired April 15th and he also missed it. He said he is trying to get a copy of it from the studio. I'll be sure to post a link to it when it becomes ava

Freezing in Florida

I'm back from my week long vacation in St. Augustine, Florida. Founded in 1565, it is the oldest established city and the oldest port in the continental United States. My partner Tom and I stayed at a oceanfront hotel located on St. Augustine Beach, just 3.7 miles from historic downtown St. Augustine, with views of the sea and the sound of crashing waves from our room. The weather was quite cool for this time of the year with an average temperature in the low to mid 50's but we enjoyed exploring downtown, walks on the beach and having an indoor pool and hot tub to relax in. The hotel had an area with a glass wind barrier that made it warm enough to lie in the sun, even with a bathing suit on, in 50 degree weather. Walks on the beach required socks with sandals most days, yes I know that is a big fashion faux pas but I made it work with matching socks. I must say that I did not miss the hustle and bustle of NYC at all and throughly enjoyed the relaxation and peace. Today in NY
