People … The sun is shinning here in Portland … Life is good!
Portland was home to two amazing events this weekend: The Portland Bazaar and Crafty Wonderland. There was an abundance of talented craftspeople and inspiration was everywhere.
Favorite Design Inspiration
When I stumbled into the booth of Mary Kate McDevitt at Crafty Wonderland, I could have stayed all day. Her hand lettering is absolutely AMAZING. I wanted to buy everything and give her one thousand high fives. As a designer, I spend so much time on the computer, but her work reminds me that starting with a pencil & some paper is definitely important. Visit her shop here.
Favorite Home Inspiration
At the Portland Bazaar, I was so excited to talk with the owners of Terrene. They create these beautiful vases made by pouring concrete. I really love plants, and I love how they made the pot stand out just as much as the plant itself. Love love love! Visit their shop!
I’m LOVING the Wordless series by Kate Miss. I stumbled across this project last week, and I’m hooked. I’ve been working on a photo series of my own for the past several weeks, so I truly appreciate others who can see beauty in the every day happenings around them.
Last week, I met a new friend for lunch at Jam on Hawthorne. It was AMAZING! I knew that Portland was going to be a great place to land as a vegetarian, but man, this place was so so so good. I had vegetarian sausage gravy on top of potatoes & eggs. I highly recommend it. Plus, the staff was super fast and friendly. I think I’m going back again on Thursday.
