Friday!

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

Marleigh Culver

While waiting for spring to swoop in like a mood superhero, I’ve been needing a massive dose of colorful cheer. I’ve been loving the beautiful prints from Richmond, Virginia-based artist Marleigh Culver. Her masterful color combinations and organic silhouettes are doing a wonderful job of perking me up in this interim before the much needed spring bulb flower explosion show. I can’t help thinking how amazing Marleigh’s work would be on textiles for garments, wall hangings, and quilts — dreams. I’m eyeing a few of her prints for a gallery wall I’m planning for our office, but it’s a tough choice! More HERE and HERE.

Plant Planet

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.

Shop Visit: Perican Bing

honey-kennedy-perican-bing-pdx-shop-visit-01

A little while back, I stopped by Portland’s lovely Perican Bing for a little visit. It’s such a clean, modern, and inviting addition the Sellwood/Westmoreland shopping district. We’re lucky to have such a gorgeous new boutique with amazing clothing, accessories, and home goods! Make your way over and you’ll find Perican Bing’s front door set back a few paces on SE Milwaukie — just beyond Fairlane Coffee (yet another new business to stop by!).

Perican Bing is owned by mother-daughter dream duo Dominga Ramirez and Lynne Nerenbaum. Dominga is the apparel buyer as well as head operations to the shop and brings with her 15 years experience in the fashion business. From marketing and promotions to sales, buying and merchandising, styling, and production. Lynne is the home goods buyer and she is in charge of visual merchandising. She has a fine arts and curatorial background that brings cheer to every corner of the shop.

I also love that the third generation of these women had has her part in this venture. At age 5, Dominga’s daughter, Ruby, named the imaginary woodpecker, who visited her nightly, “Perican Bing”. Since woodpeckers signify opportunity and discovery, all three ladies thought this would be a great name to give their family shop that celebrates wonder and reverie.

Some of my current favorites at Perican Bing are plaid wool cape, the red satin jumpsuit (hey Valentine!), the raw silk dress with pockets, the olive t-shirt dress, the blush crewneck sweater, the off-shoulder bodysuit, the rust slip dress, the everyday black pants, the black and platinum foldover clutch, and the braided leather keychains. Plus, the sale section is crazy good right now!

Friday!

HAPPY FRIDAY! I’m so ready for the weekend. How about you? I’m still working on about five organization projects around the house and I think I can finish three this weekend, so I’m pretty amped (don’t judge — I know how to weekend!). I’m also looking forward to some gluttonous food today with my pals Megan and Teresa this afternoon. I even skipped breakfast to have as much room as possible for “Idaho nachos” (potato skins filled with nacho toppings). AND I am looking forward to shoe shopping and giving some “thank you” support to Nordstrom today since they stopped funneling cash into the President’s family bank account and were attacked by our government. Have a fun weekend! xo Jen
