A Rustic Ranch Shop Update



Last week I purchased this amazing heavyweight cotton tapestry with farm animals and had to work with it right away. Love the southwestern-style designs on it as well and its rustic look. I decided to create a Hobo Style bag since I could use a large piece of the fabric therefore more of the cool images would be visible. I paired it with a soft faux suede in truffle brown.



Also added a few more Foldover Clutches to the shop. 



Created this sweet purse from a high quality upholstery grade faux suede that's also eco-friendly as it's made from recycled polyester fibers. I was only able to snatch up a few yards of it. Its got a beautiful feel to it and is just the right weight for creating handbags. 


Yesterday we took a long walk on the beach and I came across this feather in the sand. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead. Enjoy!

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…

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!
