new from mincing mockingbird

matt adrian of mincing mockingbird has been making all sorts of new goods, and we love having a little bit of everything he does in the shop. he's recently started working with greenbox art to reproduce his paintings on stretched canvases.

and he just revamped his own process, creating this new wings on wood series. with these he is printing directly onto the wood surface, and all can be displayed on a table or hung.
one of our hands-down favorite calendars for 2015 is "a year of troubled birds," featuring illustrations of matt's paintings paired with speech bubbles for the birds.
if you want something a little less, ahem, snarky, the classic calendar is lovely and has a write-on grid for scheduling.

matt & nat for fall

new matt & nat bags are here for fall! we are loving the new shapes they've introduced for this season. and in case you didn't know, matt & nat is a completely vegan line out of canada. they are constantly experimenting with sustainable and recycled materials -- the lining of each bag is made from recycled plastic bottles! their commitment to being animal and eco-friendly has only ever complemented the functional, aesthetically-pleasing design of their products. who doesn't want a well-made, earth-friendly bag that's also attractive?!

new candles from paddywax!

we just got a huge shipment of candles & soaps from a new line for us, paddywax. this nashville based company has over 15 collections of soy wax candles, and we love the custom blends they've whipped up! here is a small sampling of what we have in the shop:

mint mojito, anyone? 
the classic candles are also available in cucumber grapefruit and limoncello. 

we love that paddywax has these tiny 2 oz. travel tins, available in mint mojito, cucumber grapefruit, limoncello, new mown hay, and gardenia. (is it too early to utter the words "stocking stuffer?")
a perfect summer candle for the patio!

the eco line candles come in upcycled wine bottles, and fragrances include mandarin & lavender, rosemary & citrus, pomegranate & currant, thyme & olive leaf, verbena & lemongrass, basil & cucumber, and grapefruit & coriander. pair them up with a matching soap, and your hostess gift is good to go.
the library collection is hands-down one of our favorite groups! smartly packaged with the authors' signatures and memorable quotations, these candles call to mind the comfort of a good book. come find out what edgar allan poe, jane austen, leo tolstoy, and emily dickinson smell like!
brightly colored rustic mason jars hold scents like ocean tide & sea salt, salted grapefruit, vanilla & oakmoss, and gardenia & tuberose.

the happy collection comes in beautiful patterns and a great votive size. also available in orange peel & tamarind, ginger peach, lily & green clover, poppy & coriander, salted grapefruit, and sea salt & the surf.
more tiny travel tins from the apothecary collection! fresh garden blends with rosemary, basil, verbena, and eucalyptus.
