Just dropping in to say a quick hello! Listening to the pouring rain, and working working working. I’ve got a few new things up my sleeve for both shops, which will be available as soon as I have a few minutes away from my sewing machine. Have a beautiful day everyone.

a teensy preview

Just dropping in to say hello, and to let you know that there will be a shop update tomorrow, and I’ll be having a little SALE! Somehow the whole Black Friday/Cyber Monday thing weirds out my psyche just a bit, but I do love a sale and I know that my customers do too.  New Rucksacks, Day Packs and a few one of a kind items will be in the shop by tomorrow afternoon. Not sure of an exacting time. I have more new bags in the making as well, and am hoping to have a few more small updates over the next couple weeks.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. After hours of walking (hours!), we just finished a delicious candlelit meal of home baked bread, butternut squash soup, and kale salad. Apple/pear crisp is warm in the oven for later and I’m gonna rest my legs while I edit photos and feel grateful for the beautiful life that I have.

green tea

I never would have guessed. Green tea is a staple in our kitchen, but apparently I’ve never seen it growing because these images blew me away.

A perfectly gray day out exploring.

I know I’m not alone in my intrigue for abandoned buildings. I just can’t help but want to explore these places left behind, often still filled with the things of the people who once lived there. I always have so many questions. My curiosity got the best of me once and I explored a place I really shouldn’t have (another story for another time), but I think it is pretty safe to say that this place has been empty of it’s people for a very long time.

Hey there. I hope you’re enjoying the weekend. Just got a few new items up in the shops.

I’ve been working on some Rucksacks and Day Packs, which I hope to have finished tonight. It’s been super dark and cloudy and rainy (no gardening for me!), so photographing will have to wait until the skies clear a bit.

We’re excited about this Geometry Tote. It’s one of a kind, made with a super awesome geometric vintage upholstery fabric and leather.

ciao for now. Be back soon.

I did a little bit of sewing for myself the other day, and added some tweed elbow patches to a cashmere sweater of mine. This concept isn’t a new one, but it seems to be revitalized these days and I’ve come across it online a few times over the last few months. When I was little I often saw my dad in sports coats with leather elbow patches and I have had a fondness for it ever since. There is something both practical and playful about it – and it makes a simple sweater or jacket seem a bit smarter, don’t you think?

I enjoyed the hand sewing; it’s been a while; and I went on to dig out a few things I haven’t worn much, to see if maybe a new life with patches would renew them. I’ll be offering a few of these things at meadow + mark soon. Maybe even some cashmere. The vintage L.L. Bean cardigan is one I found just a few days ago. The patches are leather and the sweater is camel hair and lambs wool. Very cozy.  It’s available now, as are a few other things I added this week.

Have a great weekend everyone. I’ll be working in the garden as much as I can. The weeds have gone crazy with all the rain we’ve had. And, this might be a funny bit of news if you have never heard of vermiculture,  but we harvested our first tray of worm castings this week and fed it to all our plants. Our worms must be pretty happy because they are devouring our kitchen scraps and having worm babies like crazy!
