HausCraft

I love these sweet HausCraft spell kits by Erica from HausWitch. There are six different spell kits to help with protection and positivity, clearing and refreshing, housewarming, creating harmony with others, balance and calm, and finding the perfect home. Erica includes a careful selection of stones, candles, incense, sage, potions, bells, beads, sea salt, mini cauldrons and other tools to help manifest your desired outcomes. Such a perfect gift idea for yourself or a loved ones — especially with a brand new year coming! More HERE.

Shop Visit: Pistils Nursery

Located on Portland’s North Mississippi Avenue, Pistils Nursery is an unexpected oasis of flora and home accessories. From the outside, Pistils looks small and unassuming, but once you enter you’ll find it very difficult to leave behind the expertly crafted displays of plants, aeriums and terrariums, issues of Kinfolk magazine, bath soaks, ceramics, locally made jewelry, and so much more.

As if that weren’t enough, head out back and you’ll find a variety of trees, shrubs, ground covers, herbs, lettuces, and chickens all hanging out together in the relaxing garden. In fact, the staff at Pistils advised that it’s a perfect time to plant new trees, shrubs, and ground cover. Overall though, now is the time to focus on indoor plants. Just imagine how awesome an indoor herb and lettuce garden would be this winter!

honey-kennedy-pilstils-nursery-portland-shop-visit-05

Back inside, you’ll find a large assortment of air plants, succulents, cacti, ferns, and all other manner of house plants. How to pot or display your new plants? Pistils has you covered and then some with their extensive collection of planters, ceramics, aeriums, and Kokedama. Kokedama, you ask? A form of bonsai, it’s essentially using moss and string to make a self-contained spherical planter and it looks amazing. You can purchase pre-made Kokedama or take a DIY Kokedama Workshop. They also have a terrarium workshops coming up!

I’m all set to make Pistils my go-to when I can’t stand the gloomy, drab weather any more. The verdant green interior will be a sure pick-me-up and I’m sure that bringing home a new plant buddy will impart some cheer to my home too.

Pistils Nursery is located at 3811 N Mississippi Avenue and is open 11AM–7PM every day or shop online. You can also follow Pistils on Facebook and @pistilsnursery on Instagram.

Friday!

honey-kennedy-pola-negri-by-edward-steichen-vanity-fair-june-1925-03

Happy Friday, friends! Do you have fun plans for the weekend? I’m planning to do a lot of snoozing and a little antiquing for Art Deco housewares on the coast. I’ve been in total insomnia mode, but I personally believe that you can catch up and refresh by hitting pause on the craziness and sleeping a lot. Lots of chocolatey warm drinks help too, of course! Have a wonderful time — whatever you’re up to. xo Jen

Shop Visit: Spruce Apothecary

honey-kennedy-spruce-apothecary-pdx-01

Tucked neatly into the charming Union Way shopping corridor, in the heart of Portland’s West End, you’ll find Spruce Apothecary. Spruce Apothecary was opened during Summer 2013 by Craig Olson and Sean Igo, owners of beloved Portland housewares shop, Canoe. Spruce is a bright, clean and compact space that manages to house a large assortment of apothecary items without feeling crowded.

I made my first visit shortly after they opened and was so happy to finally have a local alternative to a certain chain that shall remain nameless. In particular, they carry one of my favorite clean skincare brands, UK-based REN. Unlike the unnamed chain, they really carry REN! I actually had no idea before visiting Spruce Apothecary just how extensive the REN line is. It turned out that darn chain was only offering a fraction of their products.

In addition to REN, you’ll also find skincare from amazing brands like Malin + Goetz, Ursa Major and Sachajaun nestled next to beloved standards like C. O. Bigelow and Herbacin. Even cult Japanese line, Yu-Be — which I love for preventing and/or calming upset skin — has a strong presence.

Those who, like me, suffer from seriously parched skin in the winter months should be aware of shop manager Silvia’s recommendations too. For the body she loves the handcrafted, small batch Fig + Yarrow’s Yarrow Buttercream for being rich and soothing. Also great are Santa Maria Novella’s Crema Idrasol and REN’s Moroccan Rose Otto Ultra-Moisture body oil (which smells like heaven in a bottle!) and for the face, REN’s Anti-Aging Cream — which I have used before and can attest to being great stuff.

Spruce Apothecary isn’t just a mecca of lovely skincare, you’ll also find perfumes from Santa Maria Novella, D. S. & Durga and Portland’s Imaginary Authors sharing space with Marvis toothpaste in all the flavors, seasonally relevant bath salts from Kneipp, Mason-Pearson hairbrushes and there was even a petite grooming section just for le bébé.

There are also plenty of options for men, including colognes and a selection of shaving products, such as shaving brushes and bowls. I made a special note of Italian line Proraso as a British friend of mine has long regarded their shaving foam and shaving creams as the best he’s tried and regularly stocks up whenever he’s in Italy. Thankfully for us Portlanders, no passports are required.

Spruce Apothecary is located at 1022 W. Burnside Street and is open Monday through Saturday from 11AM–6PM and 11AM–5 Sundays. You can also follow Spruce Apothecary on Facebook.
