The Pesky Cat Project


I recently completed an Offbeat Messenger inspired by a sweet kitty. Her name is Anni and she is the pesky cat of Pesky Cat Designs. She was rescued from the streets of NYC on a very cold winter day. The shelter we got her from listed her as "little orphan Anni" and she was about 9 months old. She lived with us in NYC for 8 years in an apartment on the 10th floor. She was not fond of our front door since it only lead to a hallway with two noisy elevators. Now she lives with us in Florida and loves the front door. It leads her directly to the outdoors where she can chase butterflies, little lizards and other fun things!


The bag is adorned with handmade appliques designed by me, hand cut and machine sewn onto the bag. And its interior is lined with happy kitties! 

Anni the sweetie.

I love my cats because in the mornings they are very affectionate; they follow me everywhere constantly purring because they are so content. They are very easy to love.

Souvenirs from a Road Trip Giveaway!

That's me in Miami Beach, Florida!


I'm back from a fantastic road trip around the South East, USA!  My partner and I started in NYC and went south on Interstate 95 down to Miami Beach, Florida. We made many stops along the way to amble about and see the sites. In honor of this wonderful trip I decided to have a Giveaway! The Giveaway will be my Saddle Bag, pictured to your left, filled with a few souvenirs ( a surprise!) from my trip. To enter the giveaway all you need to do is follow my blog and post a comment about your favorite vacation at the end of this post.  That's it! I'll pick one winner at random (I will use random.org) this coming Monday. Good luck!

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!

Time

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!
