Ivy Muse

As my days as a plant assassin fade into a distant memory (aside from ferns — I still slay ferns, unfortunately), I find more of a need to find interesting vessels and stands for these plants that somehow continue to thrive. These stands from Ivy Muse are high on my list of beauties to hold my living room leafy brood. I love that they come in so many colors, shapes and heights! A few of my faves are the Empire, the Arrow, Feline and the Chrysalis. Since they’re crafted in Australia they are a bit hard to come by in the states, but I’m headed for a visit to Minneapolis this fall and I’m looking forward to stopping by Forage Modern Workshop to see them in person and order through them. More HERE and HERE.













HAPPY FRIDAY, friends! What a week! I’m so excited about my two amazing giveaways and everything happening in the coming weeks. The thrill of fall is dizzying and I’m already getting excited for the holidays. I think with such a hot ass summer — the promise of cooler days is that much more wonderful. My weekend is busy with organization and getting the house ready for my friend visiting from Montreal, but I’m going to try to squeeze some more baking and soup making in. Have a good one! xo Jen

P.S. Has anyone been watching this show? It’s on my list — maybe this weekend.

I hope you have a good weekend planned for yourself. I am going to go crazy with baking and cooking to try to make a dent in a mountain of pears and apples we’ve accumulated from our farm share. We also have a bunch of beautiful mushrooms to use — I’m hoping to make and freeze a bunch of meals. Maybe soup and tarts. Any recipe ideas are very welcome! I’m so excited that it is cool enough now for soup and baking! I also want to read a stack of magazines and catch up on my sleep deficit. Happy Friday, friends! xo Jen

Atelier Make

I’ve been admiring the work of Atelier Make for a while now and as I’m getting more kitchen focused with the change in seasons, I find myself wanting to add a few more handmade, special pieces to my collection. Building little collections of ceramics both new and vintage makes me really happy each time I reach for a dish for my toast, a cup for my tea or a vase for flowers. Maya Ersan and Jaimie Robson are making such beautiful porcelain pieces out of their Montreal studio. My wish list includes their Gold Line Mug, the Gold Line Espresso Set, the Gold Line Tasting Plates, the Grey Mug and the Floral Dessert Plates. More HERE.

Shop Visit: Le Souk Le Souk



Nob Hill newcomer Le Souk Le Souk is an exciting addition to the upscale neighborhood known for shopping and dining. The brainchild of Anna Margaret, previously of Montavilla’s Branch Birdie, Le Souk Le Souk is the next step for Anna as her children grow and she seeks to add more travel and adventure in her life. Inspired by visits to Bangladesh and dreams of a visit to Morocco, Anna has filled Le Souk Le Souk with treasures from locales both exotic and closer to home.




I am totally gaga for her spectacular selection of textiles, housewares, fragrance, jewelry, apparel, and accessories. Expect lots of covetable items from WKNDLA, Ulla Johnson, Pepaloves, Neeru Kumar, and cult brand Ace + Jig. In fact, Le Souk Le Souk is stocked up with lots of amazing items perfect for the impending cooler weather including dreamy candles, smudge bundles, cozy throws, quilted jackets, fuzzy soft cardigans, and leather booties.





I admit, despite Nob Hill being one of my favorite areas in Portland, I don’t make it over often. I fully expect that to change now that Le Souk Le Souk is on the scene as it’s the perfect spot to find extraordinary wardrobe updates, items to feather your nest or that perfect gift. Grab a coffee at Barista across the street and make a friend date of it — they’ll thank you for it!

Stop by the Le Souk Le Souk Grand Opening Party tonight! Macarons, Moroccan snacks, Champagne and beautiful things will all be in attendance at 820 NW 23rd Ave. MORE INFO.

Le Souk Le Souk is located in Portland at 820 NW 23rd Ave and open Mon — Thurs 10AM–7PM, Fri & Sat 10AM–8PM and Sundays 11AM to 6PM. Follow @lesouklesouk on Instagram for more info — online shop coming soon.




Shop Visit is a Honey Kennedy series about shops and studios found in Portland and beyond. This post is by Honey Kennedy contributor Allison Burt-Tilden. Stop by her lovely blog Votre Grande Soeur
