Clyde at home...

Clyde's favorite spot is in front of Jessica's sewing machine, right at her feet.

I live in the country...

Our bedroom has a giant window that looks out to the fields behind our house. This morning (and many mornings), I woke up to the most beautiful fog lifting off the field and I was overcome with the desire to take a picture of it.  So, without realizing it, I suddenly found myself standing in the field with my camera, wearing a pair of wellies and only a t-shirt.  Thankfully, our neighbors are too far away to have noticed (plus, it was 5:30am...and who else is standing in their field in the undies with a camera at that hour??).  This is what country living has done to me.  And, I have never been happier in my life.

Summer Sale!

Hello! We have new things!
Two new colors in one of our most popular bags, The Paperback Mini! This is the perfect sized bag for a nicely curated selection of your most necessary objects (keys, cash, phone, business cards, other stuff). 

A new bag: Tote no.1

Many of you may remember The Tote from several years ago (it was a long time favorite!).  This new bag draws on that design, popular for it's slim shape and smaller size.  It's great as a daily use bag for those who want something more compact but, that does not look like a Messenger.  We've given the front a useful pouch pocket with a top flap, pencil slip and a slip pocket.  Inside you'll find a wide and deep zipper pocket, phone slip and a deep pouch pocket (which will hold a water bottle upright), as well as a comfortably sized main compartment. 

Find the new Tote no.1 here and the new Paperback Mini's here.

Also, a special sale code! 

Thank you for being the best people in the world (seriously, I love getting your emails letting me know how much your bag means to is always one of the highlights of my day)!!!  Plus, July is my birthday month! So, we're having a weekend sale!

Please use the code:  MINITOTES for 10% off your entire order from now through Tuesday.

Miranda July

There are so many things I would like to tell you about today.

We have new bags...and new colors...which we hope to be announcing tomorrow!!!

We had a fantastic holiday break...a few days off (just two more than a normal weekend can make so many things feel so very relaxed..and great).  We cooked on the grill every night (I have many recipes to share).  And, we planted lots of plants - learned about wild raspberries, spent time with friends, went to a bridal shower, did not watch fireworks...then, got to anyway because our neighbors were firing off lots of them!...daydreamed about this giant hole in our backyard and what to do with it (we have ideas!!) but, I also wanted to ask if any of you have read Miranda July's new project?  It is what feels most pressing to me while I eat my lunch this afternoon (rice with shredded raw brussels of my favs!)  
My sis/in/law, told me about it and I am 100% enamored (almost as hooked as I am on Breaking Bad (seriously..we are just starting this series and I'm pretty sure I'm not going to get much sleep for the next few weeks because you cannot watch just ONE episode at a time!)).  I love to read day to day correspondence between people (this is probably why I like to read blogs, too...and why all of you do, too).  Seeing how sentences are composed to someone they love or collaborate with or are friends with, is a rare thing to get to read when you're not part of the conversation.  I love this project.  Check it out and sign up for the emails.

Hope you had a nice weekend!
