♥ Friday, Oct 31. 5PM–7PM. The lovely folks at Lowell are hosting an opening for Crag Mountain Coral Ash — a large installation of over twenty ceramic works by Jessica Hans. Hans “specializes in functional sculpture that retains its sense of self by leaving exposed the bare, raw material on the surface of her vessels. Hans will often add foraged rocks and minerals into her clay body and glaze for a more visceral experience, as if the objects themselves literally emerged from the earth”. Lowell is at MORE INFO.

♥ Fri, Oct 31. 5PM–9PM cemetery gates. BOO! Come to the Halloween Tour of Untimely Departures! This is such a fun annual event — I LOOOOVE it.

Tours depart every eight minutes throughout the evening and are approximately 45 minutes long. Dress appropriately for the Portland October weather and be prepared for dark, uneven ground. Event proceeds are used for preservation efforts at Lone Fir Cemetery. There are mature topics, but I personally think teens would dig it. Lone Fir Cemetery entrance is on SE 26th between SE Stark and SE Morrison. MORE INFO + TICKETS.

Portland shop Noun on SE Belmont has maybe the best tag line ever: A person’s place for things. Such lovely things too! Stephanie’s shop is decorated like a beautiful old home. Noun occupies a charming space that once housed a post office and served as a trolley car stop. Now you’ll find new and vintage home goods, modern stationery, and accessories, including jewelry from Barrow, Machete, Baleen, Tiro Tiro, Demimonde and many more. Be sure to allow yourself time to really browse when visiting, as every nook and cranny of Noun’s space is teeming with beautiful ceramics, brightly packaged soaps, fragrant candles and unique objets d’art.

Looking to up your dinner party game? I love Jensen & Marineau’s ceramic tableware. Handmade just outside of Portland, the beautiful simplicity of these pieces and their hand-drawn lines are lovely. Even when your party plans are far off, the versatility of these bowls, dishes and salt cellars is almost limitless: use them to create a lovely table top display, as jewelry catch-alls for a dresser dress-up or give your pet friend the ultimate water bowl.

Coulee

I’ve been a bit scarf-obsessed with the new season, so I was really happy to find Coulee by Seattle-based designer Lindsey Bender. These beauties are all made of thin wool gauze, so you can either bundle up with the 50″x50″ square in the fall and winter or drape over your shoulders on summer evenings. Also, Lindsey uses non-toxic dyes to paint each scarf by hand without a template, so no two scarves are the same. So lovely! The problem is — which one to get? I love that the smoke dot scarf looks like tumbling moons! I’m also enamored with the smoke stripe and rust stripe scarves and all the rest, actually. More HERE.
