Lovely Things: Mother’s Day Edition

Hello! Here is a new installment of LOVELY THINGS and, this week, I decided to give it a loose Mother’s Day theme with a bunch of things that I think my mom friends, you, your moms, and your grannies might like to be gifted. There are lots of brick and mortar shops here if you live locally in Portland. Go shop around! And, as always, sending out hugs to everyone who has a hard time on this celebratory day — whatever the reason. Life can feel pretty loaded — you aren’t alone. Take care of yourself and take it easy. Lots of love to all my ladies who are raising the coolest kids — I’m so happy to get to see it all happen and to know your amazing babes. More LOVELY THINGS.

Anything from Tata Harper would likely thrill any lady. Perhaps a bottle of Hydrating Floral Essence to spritz before her face cream, the ultra healing Repairative Moisturizer, or one of the beautiful TH Face Masks would help her face feel super nourished and soft. PROMO: Free U.S. shipping for orders $50+

I love Debbie’s foggy mountain art print, the rose garden print, and really everything else she does. PROMO: Free U.S. shipping on all orders.

So many simple beautiful things in this shop. I especially love this barrette right now.

Does the mom you are shopping for have a bit of a sweet tooth? All the cookies and other sweets from Jenna and Mark are insanely delicious. They also have lots of sampler gift box options!

Sleep tight, mom. She can rest her head under a brass phases of the moon garland. PDX SHOP: Charming the Moon will be at a Portland pop up shop this Saturday, May 12, from 12PM to 7PM at The Cleaners at Ace Hotel at 403 SW 10th Ave. ♥

Spring at Una

I was just getting lost in the pretty spring pieces at Una that Giovanna has been bringing in. While wearing super bright colors, like the amazing sheer designs from Barbara Bologna, is not my bag, I am so happy thinking about a few of my more flashy friends (*jazz hands*) wearing them out and about. Other than BB, my current Una faves include a lot from Mina Perhonen, Tata Christiane, A Détacher, Pleats Please, Hildur Yeoman, Quetsche, and Pas De Calais. I’ve linked all my picks below and some of my very favorites are the linen Jour Jacket, the Spring Coat, the Bird Boat Jacket, the Meadow Dress, the Stitched Dress, the Dario Dress, the Garden Patchwork Dress, the Drawing Dress, the Silver Dress, and the Circle Dress. So… I guess, I’ve got dresses on the brain? And a few jackets! Find way more HERE.

Portland friends — you can shop Una in person at 922 SE Ankeny St.!

Shop Visit: Winter at Flutter

honey-kennedy-flutter-pdx-shop-visit-holiday-01

FLUTTER
3948 N Mississippi Ave., Portland, OR
Ph: 503-288-1649 E: info@flutterpdx.com
Hours: Sun-Wed 11-6 • Thur-Fri 11-7 • Sat 10-7

I stopped by Flutter here in Portland the other day to check out what Cristin and Sara had going on for winter and the holidays. There are lots of tarot decks (SHOP TAROT READINGS: Thursdays from 4PM to 7PM!), gilded wrapping papers, an amazing selection of Magic Hour spell candles (I want Celebration, Abundance, Revolution, and Dream!), fragrances (Etat Libre d’Orange!), stacks of great books, a wall of ribbon, cards, apothecary goodies, vintage clothing, classic toys and games for kids, yummy candies, and a million other wonders.

Another super exciting addition to the shop is a cache of gorgeous vintage textiles. The ladies are working with Kathy Brock from Little Green Pagoda to bring in mountains of one of a kind rugs, throws, wall hangings, pillows, and revitalized distressed vintage silk robes and jackets. Everything looks so beautiful and colorful in stacks around the shop, under foot, and hanging from the walls. All wonderful kilim and suzani gifts for your own home, other textile lovers in your life — total treasures!

You can stop by Flutter in person or if you see something in my photos below or at Flutter on Instagram that isn’t in their online shop, feel free to call or email the shop for more information and to buy and have it shipped out to you! Call: 503-288-1649 or Email: info@flutterpdx.com And, as always, say “hello” to King the shop kitty when you arrive! ♥
