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! ♥

I’ve got home goods on the brain right now and a need to make everything a bit more serene. That sums up Lovely Things #4. Wood. Copper. Soft, splatter-y prints. Also, a getaway. I could really use a getaway in a Norwegian cabin. Check out lots more Lovely Things roundups!
I want to hole up for a month or two in the peaceful Norderhov Cabin.
These brass and mirror trays are great, too. I love these for dressers, vanities, or pretty toiletries in the bathroom.
It’s hard to find a cute dish rack — this one is probably the cutest one ever.
These copper watering cans are a handy classic — and easy on the eyes so you can leave it hanging out with your houseplants.
HELP. I want all these pretty standing planters. Especially the grey and the rose pink ones.
As I’m wrapping my head around the fact that autumn is coming, I’ve been starting to peek at fall collections a little bit more. I’m enjoying the new REIFhaus A/W 2016 collection from Portland’s Lindsey Reif. I think my favorite new design from Lindsey is the Cascadia Poncho in sienna waxed canvas because it’s such a perfect layer for our misty, damp fall and winter weather in the Pacific Northwest. The collection of great separates is actually an homage to the landscapes and natural and urban settings that the NW provides easy access to — city buzz, roaring sea, dense old growth forests, and even a painted desert. I think the poncho is decidedly forest, but would also be lovely to have on blustery coastal romps. My other faves are the Ramona Wrap Jumpsuit in black linen, the Gather Blouse in black linen, the Big Shirt Dress in navy stripe, and the Yoko Jacket in wool tweed. More HERE.

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
