Ceri Hoover Fall 2015

Since I first spied the work of Ceri Hoover in Nashville, Tennessee last year, I've been an avid fan. Taking a break from work yesterday to Instagram, I was all smiles to come upon the announcement of her Fall 2015 collection, just released...  

Rich textures, simple, sophisticated... all mantras for this year's fall collection. Ceri's gorgeous handbags, which she began crafting in 2013, have made quite the impact in a short amount of time, as they're currently sold in over 200 stores nationwide, including her latest big get, Anthropologie. 

She has dozens of fab leather bags to choose from on her site, including totes, clutches and crossbody options. Just click here to see for yourself. Congratulations on your new collection Ceri and happy weekend y'all....

Salacia Salts

This morning I was wondering which new southern made product I've fallen for this summer...and an answer came to me rather easily. It's the Kiss My Grits lip scrub by Salacia Salts in Savannah, Georgia. It feels good, tastes good and most importantly, it does its job. It's a permanent fixture in my bag, traveling with me wherever I go...

I love my lip scrub so much, I now want to delve into one of Salacia's many other scrumptious skincare creations, which include body butters and washes, salt soaks and aromatherapy cubes- all with a nod to the South. I'm a fan...

Saint Cloud

I'm an easy target for the Pompom it's love at first sight. Owners of the home decor shop, Saint Cloud in Houston, Texas, Cecilia Marquez and Jessica Rodriguez have a similar love for unique and pretty things. Which is why their search for artisans close to home and far across the globe makes their shop one of a kind...  

I have a thing for pillows made of African Mudcloth, especially ones as gorgeous as these, all handprinted and handmade from 100% cotton. 

And these baskets...I know I must share more. The top one featured in this post was handmade in Vietnam, this one in Morocco- but the playful pompom detail is thanks to California based artist, Eliza Gran. (whose Instagram account is worth a follow) To peruse the entire Saint Cloud shop, which includes well curated jewelry, handbags and stationery, click here.

Kristin Mayfield Meredith

Since blogging about Twine and Twig, I've had a thing for bigger and bolder jewelry pieces that embody a natural aesthetic. So, I was a bit head over heels when I spied the lovely work of Atlanta based artist, Kristin Mayfield Meredith, on Instagram. 

Kristen finds beads and accessories that are both new and vintage, sourced locally or as far east as Africa. Her wooden beads are crafted by a wood turner in Vermont. Such lovely pieces, I can't wait to seek them out here in Atlanta but for the rest of y'all, you can check out all of her current work in the online shop...

Checking in with Andover Trask...

I always like to check in with Matt Weaver of Andover Trask in Atlanta to see what he's up to. His collection of handsome totes are meticulously made and can only enhance the everyday look of the modern man. 

Matt continues to expand his collection of high quality totes and bags. Each one is made of durable American canvas and leather handles with thought given to both interior and exterior pockets. Like any good manly accessory, the totes embody a classic, timeless design, meant to be used and a bit abused and shown in plain view. Because compliments ensue...

Pretty Prints

I love a pretty print. Which means I love everything Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co. in Winter Park, Florida, creates. These floral prints are some of my favorites as the dark background and her choice of colors are picture perfect. 

Anna's lovely original gouache paintings are now available in cost effective art prints, as these sell for either $24 or $60. A good deal any day of the week but especially on a Friday...enjoy the weekend y'all.

Wooden Feast Boards

The character of wood never ceases to amaze and intrigue me, which is why I was instantly smitten with these Wooden Feast Boards I spied on Instagram the other day. Made by Woodkith of Atlanta, Georgia, these boards will showcase your best culinary offerings, but truth be told, they look just as good all by their lonesome...  

All of the wood is sourced locally here in the South and each board, made of either black walnut or maple, is handcrafted in Georgia. Learn more about the Woodkith Wooden Feast Boards, here.

American Native  

For some reason, I don't own an apron but I'm a tad obsessed with them. They seem fun and stylish and I want one, I'm just not sure what I'd use it for? Perhaps that idea will come after purchase...I'd like to start with one of these please, made by American Native in Fayetteville, Arkansas. 

Each American Native apron is made with durable Cone Mills 12 oz selvedge denim that will help protect against your next art project or afternoon wood shop session. The aprons all have a wide leather pocket with copper rivets, available in either natural, butterscotch or brown. 

American Native was founded by two brothers, Bobby and Clayton Chamberlain who take great pride in crafting quality goods right here in the USA. See their entire shop, which includes leather bags, belts and wallets, here.

Orange is the Sun

Not ready to let go of summer, I love these bracelets handcrafted by Jennifer Wagner of Houston, Texas. The best part is you get to help Jennifer in the design- choosing your favorite mix of colors, vintage closure buttons and the exact size to fit your wrist. They're fun and playful, as summer should be. Design your own, here. 



Leather Goods by Prospector Co...

A few years ago, I blogged about Kyle Hinton's company, Prospector Co., based in Savannah, Georgia. At that point in time, Kyle had a small but stellar collection of grooming goods that exuded high quality and minimal design. So it's nice to see him expand his retail sensibility to now include leather goods for the modern man... 

His carry collection is ever expanding but currently includes eyeglass cases, all purpose pouches and various sized wallets, all made with top grade leather that will age well with time and use. 

Prospector Co. is an amazing enough shop online, yet I can't wait to one day step inside the brick and mortar in Savannah. Based on what Kyle has accomplished so far - expanding his grooming line to now include home goods, clothing and accessories for both men and women, my admiration knows no bounds...
