Happy Friday, friends! It’s been a bit since I posted one of my beloved Friday posts! After chilling out for a bit this January, I’m ready to get back at it full-force next week. I needed that recharge and refocus! I’m really looking forward to spring and things waking up a bit. I hurt my back moving some things around our house, so I’m supposed to take it easy this weekend again. I’ll probably just work and cook meals to freeze for next week, but I’ve really got the urge to go to the beach or somewhere else beautiful for a day. Have a lovely one, whatever you’re up to this weekend! xo Jen ♥

Putting down stakes in NW Portland recently, Work/Shop is a botanical gift shop and collective workspace that is by all accounts already off to a very promising start. It’s no surprise either since it’s Casey Shagena, owner of SE Division’s sweet Menagerie, and Heather Smith, the maker behind Aspen Summit, that have teamed up to make Work/Shop happen. With barely a month elapsing between signing a lease to opening their NW 19th doors, Casey and Heather have proven themselves pros when it comes to opening shops bursting with charm.
The first thing I noticed upon entering Work/Shop — besides all the gorgeous plants — is the hand-drawn wallpaper. Highlighting the workshop area, the large-scale floral design is impressive enough, but then you learn it was done with Sharpies! I would have never guessed. A large, inviting table and a perfect mix-and-match selection of chairs wait below for workshop attendees. Work/Shop is currently offering wonderful classes like candle making, floral arranging, an intro to photoshop, brush lettering, and lots more. They also offer gift certificates good for upcoming workshops and I can’t think of a better gift for craft-loving friends and family.
The rest of the shop is equally delightful in it’s extensive selection of plants, home goods, stationery, apothecary items, jewelry, and accessories. Expertly curated, I have to admit I was coveting just about everything in stock. Some standouts included French Girl skincare, handprinted canvas bags and pouches by Portland’s Dash and Dart, delightful nail polishes from local vegan and five-free line Palate Polish, wall hangings from Wildwood + Firth, fun notebooks from Worthwhile Paper Goods, and did I mention all those plants? From air plants to succulents and many varieties in between, Work/Shop has all the greenery you need to make your space more cheery or to make someone’s day.
Work/Shop is located in Portland at 1024 NW 19th Avenue and is open Monday through Friday from 11AM to 6PM and on weekends from 10AM to 3PM. Follow @workshop.pdx on Instagram to see cute new goods and hear about new classes. Sign up for classes HERE.
Aaaannnnd… here is the last of the 2015 Best of Honey Kennedy roundups. Revisit and linger on these posts with a jumbo cup of coffee or a big pot of tea over the holiday and weekend. I’ll see you next week — one last major sloth-ing session before really getting back to it all. HAPPY NEW YEAR! Here’s to making this one the best one yet. xoxo Jen ♥
