Welcome to Whimsical Designs by Ann.
Hi there, and thanks for being here! I'm Ann Borrelli and I love handmade and treasure the vintage. I'm a passionate decorator and I'm constantly changing and trying new things in my home as well as my life.
I made my first bag five years ago - one thing led to another, and now I have fifteen handbag collections! I love all fabric - old and new - and I have a passion for vintage and upcycling fabric into my bags. I have three fantastic daughters (all have a collection named for them!) and since July 2012, a wonderful son-in-law! I have a wonderful husband who is always supporting and encouraging me...well, almost always!
I have to thank my mom, Pat Edelman for teaching me to sew, and encouraging me to be me. I thank all of you who have bought my bags and continue to support me. To all of you who believe in a handmade life...Thanks!
Thank you for visiting.
