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!

St. Augustine Update


St. Augustine Lighthouse via

I still do not have access to my own computer and apologize for not being able to post pics of my new studio and home in St. Augustine, Florida. The internet provider here did not have our address in their data base so things are taking a long time. I expect to be up and running next week. Thanks for all your wonderful comments and for all your support. It has meant so much to me especially at this time.

We are riding our bicycles everywhere in this bike-friendly town, even along the beach! See RideThisBike for a link to a video of someone pedaling along the shore.

I've been working on new handbags and should have those listed in my shop next week. I'll be adding a batch of new Harris Tweed and corduroy bags. I'm also working on a new collection of bags created in lighter textiles. I recently purchased some gorgeous fabric by Annie Selke in tones inspired by the sea and sand. Stay tuned!

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!
