On Sunday, I packed up an overnight bag and ventured to Storybook Cottage in Leiper’s Fork. A little house so charming, your mind naturally creates its own whimsical story in its embrace. My check in wasn’t until three, so I set out ahead of time to explore around Leiper’s Fork. It unfortunately rained all day, but some of you might remember this post I did on the area here.

Hoping the rain would simmer out, I ended up driving a little too far on Natchez Trace and came dangerously close to running out of gas. I took the next available exit, and landed in Santa Fe. Thankfully, after asking some locals, I found a mom and pop store to fill up at. I’d like to explore around these small counties a bit more one day.

Feel free to read about or book your stay at Storybook Cottage through Shelter + Roost, where they also have four other rental properties to choose from. Even if you live in the area, it’s a great mini vacation to just recharge and take a breather.

My talented and sweet friend Elise Joseph of Pennyweight hosted her very first pop-up yesterday at The Poston House: a quaint two-story building close to Centennial Park. The event was filled with unique pieces made by local and national artisans hand selected by Elise. A respected curator, stylist and blogger, Elise is now also pursuing a lifelong dream: opening her own storefront. The pop-up was a nice taste of what to expect, and I can’t wait to see what she does next.

Some of you might remember my studio visit with handbag designer Annie Williams, but since then, Annie’s Germantown space has evolved and you’ll now find Han Starnes of Josi Faye quietly working away in the charming loft above. Josi Faye focuses on knitwear, which is created and knitted by hand or on hand-operated knitting machines, and each piece is produced in limited runs. Keeping minimal design at the forefront, Annie still specializes in leather bag construction where she uses hides from vintage sources or Horween Tannery in small batches, meaning each collection is limited as well.

As you can see, both ladies have a similar aesthetic and their studio spaces mesh perfectly. Combining their talents, the designers have also teamed up to create some unique pieces such as their new home collection.

Be sure to check out Annie’s leather bag collection here and Han’s knitwear line here.
