    When I was shopping through Round Top back in October, I was very excited to come across a French painter who’s work I had never seen before, Bernard Cathelin. I was drawn in by a huge colorful woven tapestry that was hanging on the wall behind their booth that just blew me away. At first I thought it was a painting and when I got closer I realized it was woven and I literally lost my mind. The colors and the silhouettes of the women were so distinct and I was amazed at the craftmanship.

    As you might have noticed, 2013 has been the year of travel for me. I feel very lucky and every trip I have taken I have savored immensely. I’ve been off the writing map the last few weeks because of this heavy travel ( 6 cities in 27 days!), but I’m happy to be back in Texas writing again especially about one of my most recent Austin discoveries: Traveller Denim Co. Right before I headed west to California, I was in Austin and spotted a tiny little shop on the eastside that caught my eye. Most people have the tendency to keep on driving when they see something in the corner of their eye. Not me, and I was thrilled when I walked into a tiny 280 sq ft shop where some badass bespoke denim is being created by partners Erik Untersee and Selenia Rios.
