HAPPY FRIDAY, friends! I’m so happy that fall has really seemed to set in now — I was not into that extended summer heat thing. This is my favorite time of the year for so many reasons and it’s fun to have it start as we’re settling into our new home. Bring on the grey and rain and wet auburn leaves! Perfect. It’s also my favorite season for clothing and there are so many beautiful things out there right now — here are a bunch of cozy things, shoes, jewels and housewares I’ve been admiring. Have a wonderful weekend! xo Jen

Hello! I’m sorry that I’ve been MIA on the I HEART PDX posts with all my moving madness. This edition is pretty epic though, so maybe that will make up for it a little bit. When the leaves turn and pumpkins replace peaches — it’s officially the season of non-stop amazing events around town. HAVE FUN OUT THERE! I’m still consumed with getting our new home repaired, but maybe I’ll see you at a few of these — SO GOOD. xo Jen

♥ 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.

honey-kennedy-new-house-01

Happy Monday, friends. How is it Monday already? Seriously. I guess my goals were pretty lofty for the weekend. I thought I’d have a lot more house stuff unpacked and organized by today. I don’t understand how people get their houses unpacked and looking perfect in like a week. HOW DO THEY DO IT!!? It baffles me. Maybe other people have super deep pockets or a family-owned, wish-granting unicorn?

Every time we move into a new space, nothing we had before really seems to fit that well and I need to hem and haw and hunt for what to get for every spot. Plus, since we bought this house, we have had to spend our small budget on making the invisible things run properly and we don’t have the money to buy the pretty, big ticket items that we really want and/or need for our new home. We need a fence, 3 big rugs, lighting, a staircase runner (we have to carry Zelda up and down the stairs — she is humiliated), bookshelves, curtain rods, shades in some rooms, clothing racks (there is no closet space), paint, frames for artwork and a zillion other things. We’ve been living here a little over a week now and I’m only able to post pics of the living room… well, 2/3 of it. And “Coffee Corner”. Can anyone else relate?

Have a lovely weekend! I’m hoping to be back to regular blogging by next week. We’ve had a lot of unexpected surprises with the new house that have eaten up my days working with contractors and repair people — so stressful! The house is a shambles, the kitchen sink is pouring water out the side of the house, a stinkbug got into the house and sounds like a propeller plane, nobody returns your calls, I’ve been stood up 3 times by repairmen, Zelda is on strike (we don’t know what for) and we’re just trying to get through the insanity. I hope your weekend is full of cozy moments and not a care in the world. See ya Monday! xo Jen
