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!

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!

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…
