Aviary Inspirations and More

I just added six new purses to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. There's a selection of Harris Tweed, corduroy and printed canvas. There are a couple of whimsical owls for those of you who are interested. Next week I'll have more bags made from printed canvas in a variety of themes.

Above is a photo of Anni in her favorite spot in our new home. She loves looking out the sliding doors to our balcony. She gets to watch exotic birds, butterflies, lizards and more. Our home is quite bare as you can see and we still need to hang up paintings on the wall etc. Slowly but surely we are settling into our new place. Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!

I love that Anni is lying upside down!
so cute.
The floors in your new place look beautiful! It takes awhile to hang artwork- we've lived in our house for years and ours is still leaning against the wall. sigh.

I don't know what's cuter, your owl totes or Anni :)

I agree with Abigail, those floors are beautiful!

Wow, the sea air is really giving you wings!

That painting waiting to be hung is one of yours, I suppose. And I see Anni is quite settled, she found her favourite place in the house and the favourite show to watch - what more could a cat want...

Ahahaha! Anni is the best!

I actually love the open space you have now. I am personally against too much furniture so to me it looks just right.
Thanks for all your comments!

EvaForeva- Personally I like the open space as well but the echo is driving me crazy! lol!
Love the owls AND the sunning fur baby!

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!

Build Your Own Purse

I've been working on creating a listing in my shop that will allow my customer to "build" their own purse. I am playing around with a lot of different ideas at the moment. The listing will include a choice of exterior fabric in several colors with a selection of coordinating cotton print fabric to choose for the interior of the purse. There will be a selection of my applique designs to choose from such as cherry blossoms, a bird on a branch, seahorses and more. I think my custom listing will be a great addition to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. If you have any ideas or suggestions I would love to hear from you. 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…
