Looking Back and Ahead


In the next month work begins on the new Harris Tweed collection for fall 2011. I've already imported a nice selection of tweed from Scotland in beautiful shades of deep ocean blue, heathered blues, speckled grayish blues and a variety of check/plaids. The main theme will be earthy browns and coastal blues. Can't wait to get started!


And wishing all the dad's out there a very Happy Father's Day!

The colour scheme for the new season sounds great!

I just noticed how your two tone carryall looks smaller on the above picture compared to the listing photo on the right, where you are leaning forward...
It just shows how hard it is to show the real size of our bags!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, Elisa!
Loddelina- Actually I do not notice that much of a difference in the bag size in the two photos. But I do notice that I look real tall in the photo above since my legs are cut off in such a way that it's hard to tell where my legs end. hehehe
I know what you mean about size, Loddelina--it's the same with almost everything that goes on the web--even jewelry.

Elisa, you look beautiful AND tall!
Dawn- Thank you! My dream was to be tall but at 5'3" all I can do is create an illusion. lol!
And yes, it is hard to get a true to life/size picture of anything. I notice that when I crop my modeling photos too much the bags appear larger. So I always try to get as much of a full body pose as I can.
Coastal blues sound just lovely!

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

Spring is Here!

To celebrate the spring equinox I decided to take the entire day off from working in the studio. OK, I confess I did sew one button onto an applique, but that's it! The rest of the day was spent bike riding, watching waves and smelling spring flowers wafting through the air. The weather was absolutely beautiful with temperatures in the mid 70's. No jacket required. Just a t-shirt and sunglasses. Hope you are all having a great weekend and enjoying the arrival of spring!

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!
