Spring Has Sprung Summer Flats


Kate Spade Elina Cork Flats


Every spring I fortuitously find the flawless “go to” flats that will adorn my feet as a loyal companion, complementing practically any outfit combination my imagination may fathom.  A well-crafted shoe of metallic-flecked cork by Kate Spade was as eye-catching to my eyes, as a cold tall glass of sangria is lip smacking to my lips on a sultry hot day. 

It’s been a very hectic time in my life with setting up the factory, meetings, travel, designing, etc. This blog and its’ delightful readers continue to be a wonderful daily oasis. Out of many thanks, I’m treating you all to a giveaway for a chance to own a pair of these darling shoes to accompany you on your own summer 12’ adventures.  

Feel free to enter below and don't hesitate to suggest other must-have shoes for this upcoming season.

A Productive Day


Woke up, coffee and headed over to the Leather Factory in Fall River, MA. 

Carlos gave me a sneak peak of the latest luxurious hide colors he recently developed.  Very excited to get designing for Fall!



I met with leather craftsman Frank Clegg to check out the rest of his latest Tuscany Collection.

A girl can never have TOO many bags.  Right??

I picked up a batch of our leather belt tabs to bring back for our stitchers.

Dropped by the button manufacturer to pick up freshly struck anchors and buttons.


Back at the factory we worked until the wee hours of the night and nicely packaged up many a package.
