Crystal Jackson

North Carolina artist, Crystal Jackson aptly named this series of colored pencil drawings and acrylic paintings, 'Crystals.' Such incredible vibrancy created with texture, form and color. I'm a fan...

Crystal describes her work as an "exploration of the micro and the macro. It's an exercise in my fascination with the small, sometimes hidden elements that make up our world, their relationships with the whole and the endless variety that ensues." 

This acrylic painting reveals and changes with time and Crystal's sentiment best captures this piece-  "things are so simple from afar..." 



New leather goods... at Peter Nappi

From time to time, I always like to check in with Peter Nappi in Nashville to see what he and his team have been up to. Besides their beautifully crafted shoes, I always seem to be lusting after their leather bags. This Nina Clutch is no exception...


Made of high quality vitello leather and brass hardware, each of the clutches, offered in 6 different color variations, are fully lined in neutral nubuck suede. 

I personally love a simple, classic wallet such as this. The Lia Continental is made in rich brown vitello leather with brass hardware and offers ample compartment space. It's a beauty. 

I'm excited to break out my passport again this summer and I'm starting to think I may just need this Mandorla holder. Such a sucker for new, leather goods...see the entire Peter Nappi collection, here.

The Voyager Wallet

Simple and uncomplicated is how most guys like to keep their shopping experience. So may I suggest a good go-to wallet that fulfills both those requirements. It's called the Voyager Wallet by Motive Goods of Orlando, Florida. 

The Voyager is made of hand picked black walnut and fitted with rubber bindings to secure cards and cash. These bindings come from recycled bicycle tires donated by a local bike shop. Another plus- for every wallet purchased, Motive Goods donates a portion of the proceeds to the Plant a Billion project. So buy the wallet and a tree is planted. Simple enough...

Katherine Jury

As spring has finally begun to show its colors here in the South, I can't help but be attracted to all things botanical. And this includes the artwork of Katherine Jury in Louisville, Kentucky...

Katherine offers a handful of original art pieces on her site. Each piece is painted with acrylics, then signed, titled and dated on the back. This beauty is Summer Guava.

Katherine, "My desire to share my artwork stems from my belief that what we surround ourselves with becomes a part of who we are. Inspiring surroundings can elevate our soul, fuel our passions, grow our minds and communicate our stories." 

And as if her paintings weren't impressive enough, Katherine crafts small travel clutches too, which are perfect for spring. Starting at just $45, you can also find prints of Katherine's most popular original paintings. And if you're stil craving more, peruse Katherine's beautifully painted scarves, iPhone goods and stationery, here.

It's Thursday....

and I have no time for a post...except to share this cute pic from my favorite Instagram feed, Petit Home. Enjoy the day y'all. An all new southern inspired post is on its way tomorrow...



Blackjack Candle Co. 

A few days ago I posted about some soft and stylish tea towels I found at 200 Mill in Marietta, Georgia. While there, I also found this candle, thanks to Lindsay Troutman of Copper and Torch. She picked up this Spanish Moss scent by Blackjack Candle Co. in Meridian, Mississippi and said it's one of her favorites. So I bought it...and now it's one of mine. 

So many times, candles can smell good in the shop but not always when you burn them. This Spanish Moss scent is woodsy and herbacious and just instantly calms and soothes. Now I just need to check out some of Blackjack's other inventive scents like Front Porch and Film Noir. See their entire collection, here.




Bobo Warehouse Sale #2

In case you missed the first giant warehouse sale, Atlanta based Bobo Intriguing Objects will be opening their doors to the public once again, this Friday and Saturday (3/27, 3/28). I got a sneak peek last week to take some pics for Sweet Peach and this sale may be even better than the last. So many ridiculously good finds- like these wooden letters and numbers, sold separately at just $30 each. 

As they say over at Bobo, think of it as a super-luxe estate sale. Inside the 20k square foot space, you'll find wall to wall unique, cool and quirky conversation pieces- and everything is priced to move. Many items are discontinued, less than perfect, samples and one-offs. 

Their silver collection is designed and made by Bobo and all of the pieces are inspired by old hotel silver. These serving domes are about as fun as serving domes get, priced well at just $85 each. 

Iron medicine cabinets, wooden planters made of azobe wood, natural horn desk accessories and barware collections...statues, baskets, frames, mirrors, cribs, lights, birdhouses, signs. It's never ending and the best part is each piece feels like it's one of a kind. 

I'm particularly excited that my good friend, Clarke Titus from Rough South Home now has his workshop situated in the back of Bobo. At this sale, you'll see a bit of his latest handiwork in stools, tables, benches, chairs and even some prototypes and one-offs, many at deep discounts. Don't miss this. 

Big glass vases for $10 each...rustic glass cloches for $35's just too fun to peruse this space. And if you can make the trip, the sale is two days only: Friday, March 27 and Saturday, March 28 from 9am- 6pm. For more details, click here. Just arrive early and ready to load up, items will move fast and furious...

The Rucksack

Ever since I first blogged about Michael Stricklin and his developing line of cool, rugged leather goods, handmade in Alabama, I've been an avid fan. It's always very rewarding to see the success of emerging artists who care so deeply about their craft. And the hard work is paying off. This leather rucksack, in my opinion, is his best work yet. 

Each Loyal Stricklin rucksack is made to order and has a lifetime guarantee. Made of the highest quality 4 ounce leather, each bag is 12" wide x 5" deep x 19" tall when rolled up. When unrolled, the bag extends to 25" in height. It's an investment piece that will stand the test of time, getting better with time- just like Michael's handiwork. To see all his wares, which include wallets, belts and his popular aviator mug, click here.
