Yesterday was the perfect rainy sewing day. I spent some time working on a new hobo concept. I can’t believe I haven’t made a one in over a year. So, I sat down and started getting my brain back in hobo mode.

This “Watson” print is the lining for the next hobo. It’s a creepy awesome hunting scene with guns, birds and hunting dogs. It’ll be interesting to see how it looks in a handbag.

I made time today to finally repair this classy St. Johns cardigan. It had a ton of tiny moth holes that needed a little darning. Now I just need a fancy party to wear it to or I’ll just wear it to work and pretend I’m at a fancy party!

While sewing in the rain, Courtney was loading film in Yemassee, South Carolina!! She slept in this old hunting lodge!

This is the entrance to the 1,000 acre plantation where she has been staying!

A morning view of oak trees and cows.

Film time! Apparently this one was being to loud for sound.

Little lead painter bade.

This is the Old Sheldon Church, a location Courtney shot at in Yemassee! It was built between 1745 and 1753 and burned down in 1779 during the Revolutionary War.

While I was sewing Dallas did some drawing.

We finished the day with a four corn black bean soup. Yum-town. Hope you had a happy weekend.


VOoDOo & SaSHEs .

With all of the film work buzzing around town, we have been busy little bees in the Rubyassata studio. Not only did we have our bags featured on “Writers”, which we heard Jennifer Connelly really enjoyed our stuff, we have been asked to make other items . . .

Like curtains ! ! !

Here they are being used on the set of  “Jessabelle”.

This snake was there too . . .

For the same film, Emily took some of our fabric scraps and made voodoo dolls ! ! !

It doesn’t stop there ! We also made queen sashes that were used on a commercial for the London Olympics !

You know we had to try them on !

OH ! Check out Alisha’s new pants ! She picked these bad boys up last weekend at  Beanie + Cecil.  Made in America by Rag & Bone.

Don’t forget about our new store in Atlanta ! Stop by Young Blood Gallery and Boutique if you’re around. Sent them a package of goodies last week !

Matthew, the intern at Freaker, posted this video to the company FB page last week. At first watch I was scarred and a little nauseated but there is just something about those Die Antwoord kids that makes you want to know more.

Is this South African rap-rave group real?

What’s with those haircuts?

Who made these awesome newspaper tape costumes?

Those drawings on their clothes are pretty cool .

What does this remind me of ???? . . . the kids in GUMMO.


White bleach bleach blond.

Weird kid like costumes.

and then I found this short that Harmony Korine directed confirming my suspicions.
