Thursday's Photo Shoot

I'm happy to be back in the studio creating and designing full time again! This week I finished up three new colorblock purses and a blue velvet messenger bag. I'll be adding them to the shop tomorrow. Today the Pesky Cat Designs team went out for a drive to the sea. Took shots of the new bags and a few others. See more from today's photo shoot on the Pesky Cat Designs Facebook page posted here.

All these wonderful photos were taken by TN.

Oh you have been super busy Elisa, fabulous! Looks like your break was refreshing! I imagine the temperature difference would have been a little shock when yu arrived back!?

WONDERFUL bags!!!! And the photos are gorgeous too!
I love your bags--on the beaches of St Augustine! The color-block series are new to me...beautiful!
Thanks everyone for your comments. It's always so nice to hear from you. These wonderful photos were taken by Tom who worked as a photojournalist. :)
Sandrine- Since we drove back from NY we had a gradually change of weather. And December in NY was unusually warm. So no shock for us. Lol!

Elisa, you have come up with some beautiful new bags. Where did you go by the water. It looks lovely. Give Annie a kiss from us.

I am having a lazy Saturday as it is raining. Just made eggs benedict and goofing around on the web. I have never heard of that park. We went to the park north of Cape Canaveral about 16 months ago-the scenery looks very similar-just open beautiful sand.
Esme, We took the photos in Anastasia State Park located on Anastasia Island in St. Augustine, FL.
By the way, lazy Saturdays are the best!

hese bags are beautiful. I love the cotton velveteen, such a great idea to use that material.

The background in your photos is so pretty! That sky is an amazing clear blue and I love the trees and the look of the wood!

I hope Anni, the Pesky cat is doing well.
Thank you everyone for your comments. Anni is doing well. She was not pleased with the long drive back from NY but she loved staying in hotels with new and exciting window views. ;)

Beautiful pictures for your beautiful bags. I love the blue messenger bag in the top shot against the blue sky and water. Your designs are just lovely.

Anni travels? I'm sure she doesn't like the drive but I think it's neat that she likes the hotel stays. Lucy and Simba have flown three times for relocation moves and have stayed in hotels too. I think they actually prefer flying to driving.

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!

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…
