Happy Friday!

“Gimme a whiskey, ginger ale on the side. And don’t be stingy, baby.” I love these images of Greta Garbo from her 1930 film, Anna Christie. She will always be one of my favorite ladies.

This weekend I’m looking forward to a trip to The Portland Bazaar to basically just poke a hole in my bank account and watch it pour out. So many folks I love under one roof… plus warm beverages and yummy treats! Ha. I’ll also be taking care of our pup, Zelda. She had dental and eye surgery this week and has to wear a cone for 10 days. Poor little girl–taking her outside is like being led by a hallucinating lost donkey. Have a wonderful weekend! xo

P.S. I love reading all these comments about the ways people love to chill out! SO NICE!

    SO excited for the Portland Bazaar! The mister and I are going tomorrow.

    And I’ve been eyeing that same food processor. We have a tiny one that I HATE. Have to make everything in batches.

  2. Love the Great Garbo quote and the Madwell shoes are so lovely too <3
