Slaap

a welcome side-effect of this time of year is just wanting to sleep, all the time. i am an early riser by nature but lately i’ve been flirting with the snooze button and am quickly becoming an expert at the snappy (and not so snappy) afternoon nap. there isn’t even the “it’s winter and we need to hibernate” excuse to fall back on … since it’s summer in this part of the world – i shouldn’t have to explain that but sometimes the hemispheres seem to surprise people.

this will be my last post of the year… a fitting one, i feel. i hope that you have a great new years weekend and that you end up having a good time whichever way you choose to celebrate it.

Rennes Handmade

i have been an admirer of Rennes Handmade for quite some time, but realised that i had never given this wonderful label some blog love (i don’t think? my archives baffle me sometimes). so, here you go! shop away. they’re on etsy too – love the marbled leather tote and pouches.

Rennes >> a company that makes leather goods and clothing; a shortened version of Rennes-le-Château. Rennes-le-Château >> a village in southern France home to local lore and mystery. Rennes is a small house of sewing in Boston, Massachusetts. From start to finish Julia drafts, cuts, and sews every piece in each collection. Attention is placed on small details, unique materials, and quality of craftsmanship. Rennes is inspired by simplicity and the belief that making an item by hand creates community.
