Rye 51

I like the change in seasons. I've noticed I adjust what I eat, what I wear, what I blog about. Like today, I have a really good reason to talk about pocket squares again...

These handsome linen pocket squares with wood buttons come via Rye 51 of Dallas, Texas. In their online shop, you'll find over two dozen choices, many of which perfectly complement the darker, earthier colors and textures we see this fall. 

This bright blue check linen square and plaid linen square have my heart. A little boldness with a classic and cool pattern goes a long way... See all of Rye 51's pocket square options, here.

The All Purpose Bag...

I love a good all purpose travel bag and the colorful, earthy options by Butter Design Lab in Austin, Texas fit the bill...

Each bag is made with a durable, water repellant waxed canvas and the interior black lining is waterproof as well, plus the seams are triple stitched. This minimal, stylish bag is built to last- meant to travel with you and be there for you, without incident. I like that. Learn more, here.

Cast & Crew...what's new

Forever a fan of Jenny & Cody's impressive furniture and home decor finds, I was in the mood to check out their online shop this morning to see what's new...

Based in Marfa, Texas, the pair have a knack for photography and design...and knowing which pieces are worth salvaging and recovering. Like this piece they fully restored- the Eames rocker in solid black. 


See the entirety of their ever evolving Cast & Crew shop, which always includes stunning chairs and taxidermy deers with hand dipped antlers, here.

Long Made Co.

The right lighting is vital to adding the right mood and aesthetic to a home. When I came across the work of Long Made Co. out of Houston, Texas the other day, I had to bookmark it to share on Sweet Peach...

Long Made Co. was founded by James and Carissa Long in January 2012, and the pair have quickly amassed an impressive collection of solid brass or steel wall lamps and pendants in their online shop.

The very first lighting fixture James and Carissa designed and sold was this one, the classic scissor lamp. After rave reviews, they had the confidence to expand their line with more styles and looks...all moody and cool.

Alyson Fox

A multi talented artist is easy to spot. Alyson Fox of Austin, Texas, spends her time crafting things from paper, fabric, found items, lipstick, ceramics and a plethora of other materials. But that's just what she does with part of her day. With degrees in photography, sculpture and installation art, she never tires of creating, transforming...

Her prints are what caught my eye this week.... a mix of drawings and collage, I love the variation in her pieces which all share some level of playfulness and joy. Delve deeper into Alyson's impressive body of work, here.

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.

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. 



Jack Mason

College football season begins in less than a month and in the South, that equates to the unified emergence of millions of frenzied, loyal fans. So I liked the fact that one southern company got in on the fun by producing college themed shave kits. 

Michael Reese, Mark Giambrone and Craig Carter launched Jack Mason in Dallas, Texas in March of 2014. They saw a need for stylishly made, college themed goods offered at a good pricepoint and together, they filled that need. 

The shave kits range in price from $85- $135. Each bag is made with full grain leather and lined with durable water resistant coated canvas. 


The boys offer a gridiron shave kit version as well, featuring a team logo, brass rivet detailing, plus a metal frame opening for more room and quick access. If you'd like to see even more offerings via Jack Mason, check out their online shop to find college themed messenger bags, belts, watches and wallets.

I dream of my next home having lots of white space and natural light....and in that home I will be placing lovely pieces of modern, clean furniture much like this...

Furniture designer and builder, Kelly DeWitt of Austin, Texas has created an impressive home decor collection. I particularly love her plant hanger, welded from steel and hand-casted white concrete that works just as well indoors or out. 

What a beautiful, timeless aesthetic she has -inspired by the Texan desert of her home and influenced by traditional American design and Shaker furniture principles. Keep up with Kelly's latest creations and whereabouts on Instagram, here.

The Tiny Finch

Certain pieces of art just resonate instantly with me, invoking a longing to buy and bring home. Like this Longhorn, made with recycled wood. If you find yourself in San Antonio, Texas anytime soon, you may get the same feeling when you step into The Tiny Finch shop and see it upon the wall...

The Tiny Finch is a lifestyle shop owned by native Texan, Courtney Beauchamp. She curates a thoughtful mix of well designed items for the home that all feel like original finds, with a natural, bohemian flair. Home decor items come from artists local to Texas to those based far across the globe. 

This is a shop I can get lost in for a bit as Courtney also curates a unique and lovely selection of jewelry, clothing, furniture and rugs. 

A sucker for textiles, I'm drawn to Courtney's expert curation. Inside her shop, you'll find handwoven Bolivian blankets, pillows made from vintage fabrics, cotton and silk napkins from Ethiopia and linen tea towels from Japan. There's a good chance you've never laid eyes on any of these items before. I love that. 

Luckily, if you're not planning to be in San Antonio anytime soon, you can still experience The Tiny Finch online. Explore the shop, here.
