Le Creuset: Stars & Cosmos

As you may have already noticed, I’m a big fan of the stars, the moon, mysteries of outer space, AND shades of blue. Of course this exclusive Le Creuset dream collection featuring a blackened blue and swirling stars would have to be released right after I finally purchased my first dutch oven. OF COURSE. The cute dutch oven with stars is only available in the 4.5 quart size and it’s not in the budget right now, unfortunately. I’ll just keep ogling it while I consider one of the other pieces in the black blue Cosmos hue, like that glorious Cosmos 9qt Round Dutch Oven. There are some sweet ceramic pieces, like the Cosmos French Press and Cosmos Mugs, that are mighty tempting as well. More HERE.

I HEART PDX

honey-kennedy-i-heart-pdx-wm-goods-01

Hi, friends! How are you holding up? It’s such a joy to be out and about and see and experience the smiling faces and kindness from Portland shops, designers, baristas, and waitstaff. This time of year can be stressful and adding to it in leaps and bounds is our country’s political crisis. I encourage you all to get out there in our community and resist corporate greed by frequenting our city’s phenomenal small businesses. It is good for the heart and our community to remind each other that we have each other’s backs. It feels like a break and it feels therapeutic AND it’s still fighting the good fight against the powers that be. Plus, a lot of these events have wine. Love to you! xo Jen
