The ladies at Woonwinkel are going all out on Wednesday with their LUSH: Design Week Portland Open House with a fun, jungle-inspired wonderland for plant lovers! Life in the Pacific NW means we’re surrounded by lush greenery and a lot of us feel inspired to surround ourselves with even more plants in our homes and with beautiful plant motifs in decor, jewelry, textiles, clothing. Two local designers are popping up from April 26 through May 14 — Natalie Joy is bringing her amazing Brass Plant Mobiles and a jungle of custom Brass Vines and Revolution Design House will have their popular Boxcar Planters en masse (including 2 custom colors for the event!). There will be a raffle during the party for one of each from the designers! Plus, rad indoor garden-inspired goods debuting during the pop-up. There will also be bubbles and snacks and great people. LUSH runs through May 14.
Plus, Woonwinkel’s colorful, dreamy Color + Clay Ceramics Pop-Up and sale will still be going strong through May 1! You’ll find the vibrant works of Brian Giniewski, Pigeon Toe, Hella Jongerius, Ashley Hardy, Mary Carroll Ceramics, and Sarah Wertzberger. A rainbow of ceramics is available for perusing and purchasing. MORE INFO.

Happy Friday and Happy Easter! Here’s to a lovely weekend and, hopefully, a little sunshine. We have our niece, a party, and more puppy training on the agenda — we’re trying to keep it pretty a leisurely one. I’m going to gather some yummy things to make a little Easter basket for our niece today and MAAAAYBE we’ll try to go out for brunch Sunday — which could be a little nuts in a town where brunch is already nuts without a holiday thrown in! Eeeeps — we’ll see. Have a fun one! xo Jen

Hello! Behold — the Lovely Things #5 post — FINALLY! I’m not really finding a cohesive thread through this edition, but maybe it’s seashell colors, statement pieces, and dreamy states of mind. And bookends? Well, whatever it is — here are a bunch of wonderful things that have caught my eye lately. Find more Lovely Things roundups right HERE.
An ice cream pink jumpsuit that’s coming out this spring from Steven Alan. ♥

I’d be pleased as punch to spend all summer days lounging in this English tea shed.
Hello! Happy Friday! I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I’m laying low while recovering from a terrible cold. I’m hoping to get a burst of energy to get out into the garden and do some gardening and rose pruning, but we’ll see. I’m working on some special rose posts if any of you have been interested in growing some of the beauties you’ve seen on my instagram feed. I’ll go over my experience and current favorites. I’m hoping to help you to not feel intimidated and go for it — it’s so rewarding. Anyways, back to tea, blankets, and Victoria. And Riverdale (don’t judge — it’s so dark and weird for Archie!). xo Jen

I’ve had my eye on these beautiful Plant Planet prints from Los Angeles-based artist Claire Nereim. I’m especially enamored with the Night Garden print, the Poisonous Plants print, and the Matilija Poppy print. I also love that you can find her work on some Baggu bags now (see Anthrurium and Cherry). Portland friends — contact or stop by Neapolitan to find some of Claire’s prints locally. More HERE.
