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.


summer reminds me of how much i love the color yellow.
it also makes me want to spend my days reading poetry.

The Summer Day


Mary Oliver

Who made the world?
Who made the swan, and the black bear?
Who made the grasshopper?
This grasshopper, I mean-
the one who has flung herself out of the grass,
the one who is eating sugar out of my hand,
who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down-
who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes.
Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face.
Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away.
I don't know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?

and listening to the beach boys.

happy spring, friends!

at o'suzannah we love approaching things a bit differently each year. we like it to feel fresh, and "sales" are no exception to this rule. this year we have decided to have a soft entry into a bigger summer sale, and we are staging this little coup in one of our windows and calling it our "springtime windowsill sale."

here's how it will go down:
each week we will feature a new sale theme in our windowsill. the sale will begin this monday, may 19 (that's tomorrow!) and will include accessories of all kinds (jewelry, scarves, hobo, and more). the following monday, may 26, the theme of the window will change to home & product.

here's a rundown on themes and dates, so mark your calendars if you have preferences!

week of may 19: accessories
week of may 26: home & product
week of june 2: paper goods
week of june 9: father's day goods
