The lovely folks at Portland’s Seaworthy have been branching out from their wonderful jewelry line lately with a series of handmade beautiful and useful objects for your home. So far, there are the trio of sweet Brass Bookmarks (the moon!!!), the Brass Salt Spoon and Ceramic Cellar Set (a collaboration with Rabbit Rabbit with new colorways coming this month), the Brass Cocktail Picks Set (such a great wedding gift or birthday/holiday gift for craft cocktail lovers), and the Palo Santo Set for cleansing your home, mind, and spirit. Seaworthy will be coming out with more home goods this month and you can see it all HERE.

Hello! Here I go with my second installment of LOVELY THINGS! This time it seems to be more about home goods, travel, and art. It’s strange that, without trying, these things that my eye tends to gravitate to all sort of fit together in color and mood. Totally randomly lured by them, but cohesive all the same. Oh my word, I am coveting so many home things. It’s hard when you can see the design symphony your home could boast, but the piggy bank just shakes its head. Little by little it will get there. Check out more Lovely Things posts! ♥
This beautiful little specimen terrarium display case is high on my wish list.
Such sweet floor cushions in geometric waves prints. Nice for kitties, pups, babies, or just so your own bum is comfy relaxing on the floor.
This fun Geometric Wool Tile Dhurrie is a great piece! Especially if the #ihavethisthingwithfloors reality of fancy tile prices is getting you down.
Yep. Still have my eye on these black pom pom baskets. Too good.
Such a clever stacked jewelry box in layers of maple, cork, and copper.
These pretty blown glass pitchers would be nice to have filled with ice and lemonade spritzers for summer dinners on the patio or filled with mimosas at brunch with friends.
YAY! It’s peach season!! This peach tartlet recipe looks yummy.
Oh, yeah. I’d love some strawberry apricot breakfast crisp any morning… any day.
Well, this is a dream workspace! Love the Samara Work Table and the whole look from Feist Forest and Country Living mag.
HAPPY FRIDAY! Here is my big list of Portland fun happening now and for weeks to come. Spread the word — these folks are amazing. Stay cool this weekend! xo Jen

I’m planning out some paint, wallpaper and large prints in a couple different rooms at home and I found myself back in the amazing Debbie Carlos print shop. I own the deliriously dreamy Pink Clouds Print (you can see the Pink Clouds in my bedroom) and the huge Clouds Poster. Debbie’s prints are on beautifully thick, heavyweight luster photo paper and I think it makes them a bit more special as well as more sturdy. The posters are on nice paper as well and I think they are especially good for creating a fun, large impact in a room at lower price point so you can switch it up. The smile-inducing new Debbie Carlos lookbook below was shot by Ola Onda — so great! I currently have my eye on the Fog Print, the big black and white Roses Poster, the color Flowers Poster, and the Lake Print. I love that Debbie is offering clips and wooden poster hanging kits now — super handy. More HERE.
YAY! This big Helsing Junction Farm Share giveaway is for all the organic produce-loving Pacific NW residents out there AND the people elsewhere who love them and want to enter on their behalf! It’s such a joy and a gift each week (for 20 weeks!) to receive the beautiful veggies, fruit, cheese, and more from this amazing women owned and operated 42 acre farm. Annie and Sue are inspiring ladies who have been working hard at it for over 25 years. One lucky winner will get a delicious Helsing Junction Farm Small Share for 8 glorious weeks! Spread the word to your friends from or between Portland and Seattle! Good luck, everyone!! ♥ Jen
DELIVERY: PORTLAND • SEATTLE • BELLEVUE • TACOMA • OLYMPIA • MORE LOCATIONS
UPDATE: Congratulations to Rhiannon Leifheit! She won this prize!
➔ TO ENTER:
1. Tell us what summer veggies and fruit you’re most excited about in a comment below!
2. For an extra entry, follow both @helsingfarmcsa and @HoneyKennedy on Instagram. Then leave a comment below. If you already follow us — just let me know that, too!
WHAT WE GET:
For our household of two, my husband and I had got the Small Share (for 20 weeks), the Fruit Share (for 15 weeks), and the Cheese Share (for 8 weeks) this year. We’ve had the Flower Share (for 12 weeks) in the past which is AMAZING, but I planted so many more roses and other flowers this year that I pulled back. I’m still not sure that was a great decision as I’m looking at photos of the stunning Helsing Junction bouquets I got last year. It’s so worth it and the flowers looked beautiful for 10 days or more — which is crazy. If you enjoy eating out a few times a week, you might occasionally have times where you need to come up with a recipe game plan for freezing or do some fun trades with neighbors, co-workers and friends. Luckily, HJF has a wonderful recipe index and there are LOTS of share choices available!
SHARE OPTIONS: MINI SHARE • SMALL SHARE • LARGE SHARE • HEALING SHARE • PALEO SHARE • SNACK SHARE • JUICE SHARE • FLOWER SHARE • BULK SHARE • STORAGE SHARE • CANNING SHARE • CHEF SHARE • FRUIT SHARE • CHICKEN SHARE • SAUERKRAUT SHARE • YOGURT SHARE • HANDCRAFTED CHEESE SHARE • MORE INFO
A SWEET DEAL: Get 5% off your Mini, Small, Large or Paleo farm share at Helsing Junction Farm with code FARMDIRECT16 for a limited time. 2016 SIGN UP + DELIVERY OPTIONS.
DELIVERY AREA: Here is the big Helsing Junction Farm list of Oregon and Washington drop-off sites and delivery locations.
DRAWING: This giveaway ends Wednesday, May 18, at 2PM PST. The winner will be chosen at random and I’ll update this post with the name within a few days.
