New Purses for Spring


This red corduroy semi-circle purse is new for spring and was added to the shop last week. 


The leafed branch applique was hand-cut and machine stitched onto the purse.


A purse in steel blue corduroy with a bird applique was also added to the Pesky Cat Designs shop.


The first two purses still need to be photographed. Hope to have them in the shop in the next few days. They are made from fine quality upholstery faux suede.


The weather here has been beautiful. A recent day trip had us strolling along this boardwalk that leads to the Intracostal Waterway. We spotted an alligator along the way and ended our walk watching dolphins.



Anni has been spending most of her days catching rays. Happy Spring!

Hi Elisa,
I opened my blog list and this red jumped right on me! What a splendid little red bag, full of energy!

Alligators brrrrr, I am not so fond of them - but the dolphins would bring me joy too!

Do it like Anni, enjoy the sun! :-)

Lying in the planter? Yeah, that seems comfortable - nutty cat.
Yael- Yes, I am not too fond of alligators as well. I will be enjoying the sun for sure. Have a wonderful Sunday!
reread - Ha, yes cats love the most uncomfortable looking places to relax in. Most of the time she squeezes herself into a box half her size.
That boardwalk reminds me of my mom's home. It looks simply beautiful! I know that FL is beautiful this time of year, and I envy you!

Such luscious bags, Elisa. Gorgeous!

Happy Easter-I do like the red one-Annie seems so content.
Thank you for stopping by Dawn. And yes, this is the best time of year in Northern Florida. :)
Thanks for stopping by Esme. Anni loves the back sliding doors. She sits there watching the birds and little lizards until she gets so tired that she falls asleep right in the planter. :)

Those are some gorgeous colors, especially that top red purse. I love the lining too. Your daytrip looks fun. What a neat looking boardwalk. Living at the beach most of my life, this boardwalk is quite unique but I don't think I'd be happy about the alligator unless it I could see it from afar.

Oh, I just love this picture of Anni. What a great life to be able to safely sit in the sun and watch the birds. My Annie sends your Anni purrs. :)

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…
