A few weeks ago, at one of my favorite spots, I thrifted all of this: The threadbare rug now lives in the kitchen; it’s a bit too large, but that’s because my kitchen is so small that any attempt to do jumping jacks would result in one hand going through the window while the other […]
Crazy week. I found out the hard way that I’m allergic to yellow jacket venom. But you know I wouldn’t leave you without some of my partner’s baking. This weekend: Chocolate Chip Shortbread.
Strolling through the Park Blocks to the PSU farmer’s market. This picture is just a fraction of what is there; this is the view from the center. Hella green beans. These beans were the longest I’ve ever seen, some were easily 10″. Crazy! While I was waiting to take this photo, I overheard this conversation: […]
After tormenting our child by dragging him to several stores and igniting in him a burning hatred for antiques for all eternity, we left Aurora and headed home. I’ll throw in one last beauty: I love the Greek Key design, the lilac color, and the scale- the basin is nearly 2′ across. I could see […]

When I found a J. Jill skirt in a dumpster in Sacramento, I did what all the normal ladies do: I saved it in a box for years and then turned it into a pillow. (Yes, it was washed first!)
I thrifted this 90s top earlier this summer. I’m in love with the colors and the pattern.
These photos all have one thing in common… Shadows. Summer in Portland.
