three new custom bags

New custom made bags:

11 inch Mac Book Air bag that is "business on the outside, party on the inside."  Grey felt lined with neon yellow/ green.  Fully padded with a button closure.


A definite first.  This bag was made for a woman who uses a walker.  It has a square bottom to fit all of the essentials (water bottle, wallet, lipstick, cell phone, etc), a button to help delineate space, and adjustable velcro to easily secure the bag to the walker.


A custom ordered Bosworth style bag with a single shoulder strap.  Shiny black vinyl with light brown piping and tan lining.  Two internal pockets and snap closure.

Coasters are finally back in stock!  Available in grey damask and brown woodgrain, each coaster is hand screen printed and approximately 4 inches square.  Due to natural irregularities in cork, each coaster is slightly different.  Sold in sets of four in the Fiori Falsi Etsy Shop.





The woodgrain variety is currently in stock at the Renegade Handmade store.

plants you can wear


How amazing are these wearable planters?  All of the designs are Made by Colleen, who asks "why should your plants stay at home?"  Colleen makes all of the planters so you can fill it with whatever plant or flower you want.  I love how simple and clean they are, from the form to the color.

I may have to wait a few months before ordering mine though.  I doubt my plant would survive this cold  or the two feet of show we got yesterday.

you don't inspire me - prints from Mello Press

Amanda of Mello Press is a longtime friend and amazing letterpress artist.  The title of these prints is completely misleading however, because Amanda's work is far from uninspiring - it's humorous and insightful and wonderfully reserved.  She recently made a beautiful series of prints based on a conversation we had a decade ago with the advisor of our high school newspaper.  You can read all about the story behind the prints on Amanda's blog and see six of the finished prints (along with a lot of the other prints) on her etsy.
