Brass Plant Mobile Giveaway!

YAY! I’m so happy to be having a fun Brass Plant Mobile giveaway today with lovely maker Natalie Joy! One lucky winner will get to pick the plant mobile of their choice! Her jewels are wonderful head-turners and now so are these dreamy handmade brass mobiles made perfectly in the silhouettes of houseplants. I love the way they twirl when there is a breeze and the glints of light and shadowplay they spread across a room. They also look amazing set dangling in a jungle of houseplants or hanging in the window. My faves are the Monstera Deliciosa (split leaf philodendron), the Monstera Adansonii (swiss cheese plant), and the Dracaena Fragrans (corn plant). It’s really fun to see them in action in other people’s homes on Natalie’s instagram — so much plant love! More HERE. GOOD LUCK, FRIENDS! ♥

Lovely Things #4

I’ve got home goods on the brain right now and a need to make everything a bit more serene. That sums up Lovely Things #4. Wood. Copper. Soft, splatter-y prints. Also, a getaway. I could really use a getaway in a Norwegian cabin. Check out lots more Lovely Things roundups!

I want to hole up for a month or two in the peaceful Norderhov Cabin.

I love the new Blushing Taupe Blooms Wallpaper and all the rest of the new designs, too!

I love this wood and brass tray! Breakfast in bed or a nice coffee table spot to put candles, coasters, and incense. This reminds me of my art deco one.

These brass and mirror trays are great, too. I love these for dressers, vanities, or pretty toiletries in the bathroom.

Oh, helloooo! I love these new Black Bubble mugs in both sizes. I want to stare lovingly at one while I sip my morning coffee.

I love this collection and all the rest of the amazing new home goods.

All these candles smell amazing. I’d love a mini candle box set.

I love this fringy Coyuchi linen table runner. The wildflower runner is beautiful, too.

It’s hard to find a cute dish rack — this one is probably the cutest one ever.

These copper watering cans are a handy classic — and easy on the eyes so you can leave it hanging out with your houseplants.

HELP. I want all these pretty standing planters. Especially the grey and the rose pink ones.

First, I need a mudroom with cute tile and beautiful molding. Then I need this oak bench to put in it. And all the planter pots and things.


As I’m wrapping my head around the fact that autumn is coming, I’ve been starting to peek at fall collections a little bit more. I’m enjoying the new REIFhaus A/W 2016 collection from Portland’s Lindsey Reif. I think my favorite new design from Lindsey is the Cascadia Poncho in sienna waxed canvas because it’s such a perfect layer for our misty, damp fall and winter weather in the Pacific Northwest. The collection of great separates is actually an homage to the landscapes and natural and urban settings that the NW provides easy access to — city buzz, roaring sea, dense old growth forests, and even a painted desert. I think the poncho is decidedly forest, but would also be lovely to have on blustery coastal romps. My other faves are the Ramona Wrap Jumpsuit in black linen, the Gather Blouse in black linen, the Big Shirt Dress in navy stripe, and the Yoko Jacket in wool tweed. More HERE.

Happy Friday, friends! I’ve been enjoying time this week with my good friend, Jenna, while she’s visiting me from Brooklyn. We’ve gone to the ocean, picked fruit and flowers, talked for hours, and I’m looking forward to taking her to more shops around town. I’m also looking forward to doing some cooking! Well, light cooking, mostly making salads and ice cream (we have this simple ice cream maker and it’s great!) since it’s supposed to be 100 degrees this weekend. Have a fun one! See you next week. ♥ xo Jen

Lovely Things #3

Hello! Here we go with another installment of Lovely Things! This roundup seems to be feeling the love for tomato red, hot pink, muted apricot hues, grids, black straw, abstract art, mid-century, and cool vintage babes. And shoes. I really want some new shoes and I’m kind of loving those red booties, but I always end up with practical neutrals for autumn. We’ll see — maybe I’ll go rogue this year! Check out more Lovely Things roundups HERE. ♥

I know I’ve been talking a lot about sunglasses, but I also love these Acne Studios shades.

My friends at Seamwork put together this beautiful Painting with Dye tutorial.

Errrrmaghuuurrrrd. I love this beautiful bar cart. I also have a spot for it. Help.

I just love this lounge-y color story and subtle middle finger from Vogue in 1950.

This Primary Color Grid is one of my favorite silk scarves by Mengly. (More HERE)

Aaaaahhhhh! This cubist bookshelf is so dreamy. Love the colors.

YEP. Still in love with these low pom pom baskets at Beklina! (local Portland peeps — check Woonwinkel for a great selection of them too)

Flying saucer? Little black hat? Such a great little incense burner.

This is a pretty good defense of carnations. They can be SO LOVELY.

There’s just something about red suede shoes.

These hand-woven recycled plastic bags are so pretty. The large tote, please!

All of these things, please. I like all the cute new takes on tassel loafers/oxfords lately.

Gimme these tomato red suede booties. So cute and more chic than super hero.
