Thursday Shout Out: Happy Birthday To…!

Let it just be known that June 7th just so happens to be the birthday of one of the coolest broads on the planet. That’s right, folks, today’s Shout Out is dedicated to our very own Mackenzie, and today’s picks are all awesome items that she deserves to have wrapped up with a fancy bow. Not to get too sappy, but Meatbagz wouldn’t exist without her, so if you happen to be proud owner of one of our bagz, rock it a little extra today and send Mack some happy birthday vibes.

it takes courage Linocut Print by PerlaAnne. $20. ee cummings definitely had a way with words, and Stacey Bradley of Perla Anne captured his sentiment perfectly. This hand cut and hand pulled linocut print is simple and sweet, and yet strong and bold at the same time. Kind of like a chick I know….and hopefully you know someone this fits too.

Vintage Ceramic Stoneware XXX Jug Pitcher and Six Mugs by MyOhMiles. $49.95. Here’s a relatively little known fact: Mack happens to be one of the finest makers of Apple Pie Moonshine around these parts. Sure, only the lucky few get to sample her wares and those of us who do usually drink it from good old Mason jars in the back yard, but if she had this set she’d be running a flat out classy establishment. We love the classic brown and white stoneware, we love the “XXX” markings, and darn it-we pretty much love the whole deal.

Red Converse Limited Edition Glicee Print by josartcorner. $30. When I first met Mack she pick pocketed me in the hall by my locker. There’s of course a long story behind this, but I decided that we were going to be friends as I watched her run off, her cons flashing, her hysterical laughter bouncing off the walls. (She wasn’t a particularly good pick pocket.)  Wouldn’t you know it, it’s been many a-long year and she still cracks me up…and I can’t see converse without thinking of her. So it stands to reason that this beautiful glicee print of an original oil painting of red cons deserves a place of honor in this shout out. The strong colors, the comfy slouch of that canvas, and, of course, the classic star logo evokes the glory of the all star in every way.

Hand Stamped Bracelet with Secret Message by WyomingCreative. $15. It’s a simple fact that when you’re lucky enough to have an amazing person in your life you should remind them of just how amazing they are on a regular basis. When you can’t be there in person, let this bracelet serve in your stead. With a hammered textured exterior it is beautiful on its own-with a hidden message (fully customizable, if you have some super secret code you want to utilize to make it even more covert) to make it perfection.

So, Mack, happy birthday. I am crazy lucky that you’re my friend, and you, my dear, are amazing.
