Long Time no See

Hello All!
I've taken and will continue to take a little break from my weekly blog...
Our office will be closed from now until October 20th. I'm getting married!

When I return I will share tons of new ideas and perhaps fill you in on how We created our Dream Wedding...

Until then! Have a wonderful two weeks!

xoxo,
Within Studio

October Finds


Just a few little items that I like.... Cool Design for a Cool October Day..


Katharina Ludwig's defensive mechanisms for the urban being are multi-purpose bags, a series of bags for people who feel threatened in our society. The bags are "a sort defensive weapon, not visible as such in the first place, but which can be applied when feeling threatened." Above, one of three bags in the collection, The Pink Bag which can extend to about two and a half times its size so you can hide yourself inside it, "to escape the mass of people surrounding you."

The leather bag with wheels is a tool to get in touch with the ground and find orientation, get grounded. When letting go the handles and holding on the to textile part, the bag stretches down to the ground and can be pulled alongside on the wheels.

he make her other purse turn into a pulling piece of art! Love Love it!
