Brass Plant Mobile Giveaway!

YAY! I’m so happy to be having a fun Brass Plant Mobile giveaway today with lovely maker Natalie Joy! One lucky winner will get to pick the plant mobile of their choice! Her jewels are wonderful head-turners and now so are these dreamy handmade brass mobiles made perfectly in the silhouettes of houseplants. I love the way they twirl when there is a breeze and the glints of light and shadowplay they spread across a room. They also look amazing set dangling in a jungle of houseplants or hanging in the window. My faves are the Monstera Deliciosa (split leaf philodendron), the Monstera Adansonii (swiss cheese plant), and the Dracaena Fragrans (corn plant). It’s really fun to see them in action in other people’s homes on Natalie’s instagram — so much plant love! More HERE. GOOD LUCK, FRIENDS! ♥

Happy Friday, friends! I’ve been enjoying time this week with my good friend, Jenna, while she’s visiting me from Brooklyn. We’ve gone to the ocean, picked fruit and flowers, talked for hours, and I’m looking forward to taking her to more shops around town. I’m also looking forward to doing some cooking! Well, light cooking, mostly making salads and ice cream (we have this simple ice cream maker and it’s great!) since it’s supposed to be 100 degrees this weekend. Have a fun one! See you next week. ♥ xo Jen

Shop Visit: Tilde



Portland boutique and gallery, Tilde, has an aesthetic that is decidedly unique, fresh, and modern. Specializing in local and domestically produced products, Tilde carries a large selection of jewelry, handbags, home goods, art, stationery, air plants, ceramics, and apothecary boasting high quality craftsmanship, pops of color, and clean lines. Located in the heart of Sellwood, a charming South Portland neighborhood known for walkability, great shopping and dining. Tilde is a long-standing favorite destination and shop owner, Debbe Hamada, is known in the community for bringing in wonderful things from small makers.




The large, modern space utilizes beautiful mid-century furniture as backdrop for a wonderful selection of goods. You’ll find lots of jewelry, including pieces from Portland favorites Demimonde, Betsy & Iya, and Kiersten Crowley. I also recommend checking out the beautiful French barrettes, scarves, and other sweet accessories. There are art prints from a bunch of very talented artists, including: Julianna Swaney, Archie’s Press, Mai Autumn, Animal Sleep Stories, Archie, and Michelle Maule. Debbe stock a variety of handbags from the likes of Irish designer and cult favorite Orla Kiely, the well-made vegan leather line from Matt & Nat, and several others. There is also a huge selection of delightful stationery, candles, soaps, and more apothecary goods from lovely natural lines, and so, so much more!




During my visit I was delighted to overhear a mother mention — after stopping in with her small son — that it was their Saturday morning ritual to make a visit after breakfast to look at his favorite items in the shop. In fact, the shop was quite busy despite the early hour and coinciding gorgeous weather. Inviting seating and the lovely staff make it easy to want to get lost while hanging out and admiring all the pretty. Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift for a loved one or a special way to brighten your own day, Tilde always has lots of of great options from independent makers.




Make sure to stop by for the big TILDE SUMMER SALE on Saturday, August 27, to get 15% off EVERYTHING in the shop!! It’s the annual end-of-summer sale that lasts all day, in the brick and mortar shop and online as well. Many of the neighborhood shops will be offering sales and discounts this day, it’s a great day to visit Sellwood. Online shoppers can enter SUMMERSALE for the 15% discount at checkout.

Tilde is located at 7919 SE 13th Avenue in Portland, Oregon. Shop hours are 10AM to 6PM Monday through Saturday and 12PM to 5PM on Sunday. You’ll find a larger selection in the Sellwood shop, but you can also shop online anytime! Follow Tilde on Facebook and @tildeshop on Instagram to keep up on new arrivals and events.





Shop Visit is a Honey Kennedy series about shops and studios found in Portland and beyond. This post is by Honey Kennedy contributor Allison Burt-Tilden. Stop by her lovely blog Votre Grande Soeur


There are so many beautiful things rolling in at Rennes. While I don’t want the summer flowers, fruit, and veggies to stop, I am looking forward to the transition into fall. Julia’s little shop is stuffed with lovely pre-fall things right now — just add tights, sweaters, and boots when it gets more chilly. I love this striped linen dress, this black dress, this pleated black dress, the crimson Krasner Jacket, the fuzzy Petula Coat, the black Gretel Tote, this insanely beautiful Milo wallet, and the dreamy silk macaroon boudoir pillows. More HERE.


















Le Market

This little online shop Le Market out of Minneapolis, by Megan Jensen and Lauren McGinty, is so cute. I love their selection of interesting new designs mixed with special vintage items. My current Le Market faves are the Eva Dress (of course, made in PDX by OAM!), the Gal Pal Enamel Pin, this straw basket, the Matisse Visage T-Shirt, the Pink Pleated Bags, the funny Working Girl Socks, and the vintage Encyclopaedia of Type Faces book. More HERE.
