Old Try

Beckel Canvas


I've wanted myself a log carrier for twenty years or more. But, living in the South, there wasn't as much need for one as: a) there were fewer stoves to need to fire up after moving away from home and b) see a. That's just about why.


And when I was thinking of getting one, I was having a tough time trying to convince myself (well, I was convinced, it was trying to convince the more sane of us: the...

Caffeine from a mason.



I can't help but post this.

Several friends up here at Fringe have just released a hot new thing. Called Cuppow. You can turn a mason jar into a coffee cup.

Don't act like you ain't got a mason jar. I know you got twenty of em – grandmama gave you three this Christmas alone cause she does all that canning.

Only downside I see is that a mason jar of hot coffee is going to be hot. But come on. Life's...

Working with William Lamb and Son



We're tickled to have teamed up with WM. Lamb & Son, of Tallahassee, FL on our newest batch of Manners prints. We packed them up and shipped them down yesterday and they will be selling them from their website in the near future.

They'd reached out to us a few months back, as we run in similar circles of Southern folks on the internet. I'd seen them when their patterns popped up on the back of a...

Writing for the Trot Line.



Hey friends.


I started writing a little bit for The Trot Line in Atlanta.

In their words.

The Trot Line's mission is to promote the local lifestyle that surrounds this special region. No one does it quite like us, and we like it like that. Drop a...

Bowties & Boatshoes.


I grew up in the Deep South. Marianna in the Old North State in the South. And the upper East coast has always seemed worlds away. Indeed, it's probably a fifteen hour drive from North Alabama, and is North of the District, and might as well be Boston. And I didn't ever think I'd know folks there.


But there are a couple of nice fellows there (Ryan [UGA] and Ben [someplace in Florida]) with whom...

Remnant.

Remnant sitting on our old porch in Somerville


I just got to say I love our friends at Remnant.

They are married and they make magic and I've known them since Atlanta and we're working with them to make a bag for Old Try, and it's going to be cotton (waxed?) and leather and it's going to be so amazing and I just go to their blogand I see the things they make and whether it's for the company or...

Back Down South.



Get on over to Back Down South, one of my favorite blogs of late.

It was started somewhat recently by Mrs. Fontenot and her husband (who is forever forgiven for being a LSU grad) in the mountains of North Georgia, and has really caught fire since. 

I'm tickled that I'm on therefor last Friday, with my letter sweater that Marianna made for me a few years back. Every Friday during the season she...

Getting our Bearings.

 

Wow. We made it on Bearings Guide.

Oh, you happen to not know what Bearings is? Well, just the finest curation of what all is going on in the South, specifically tailored to the Southern gentlemen. Just the biggest deal since an internet connection.  Started by two men (at least one of whom is a Tar Heel) with great taste and a passion for others with that same taste.

No Big Deal.



From their...
