oh, paris!

A quick little weekend update: I just saw that Jennifer Causey added prints from her recent trip to Paris to her shop. If you're a Francophile like myself, I am sure you would love having these displayed in your home. I cannot wait to get my own.

thought of the day : a simple request.

"Love Me," by Lisa of Lou Lou & Oscar (found via her photostream.)

portland local : noun (a person's place for things).

paper letter tiles in a beautiful copper bowl.
gorgeous ceramic bowls and cake stand.
owl plates & gold fig vessels.
bowl of army men & tiny toy piano.
cake stands in the sunlight.
vocabulary cards.

Due to all the great response I got from this post (thanks everyone!), I have decided to continue posting more of my 35mm shots from my favorite local Portland shops. This week I would like to show you these pictures from Noun, a little place I always seem to be wandering around. Not only does it share a space with the southeast saint cupcake (which I will say, as a snobby baker, makes the best cupcakes in town), but it also a perfect spot on its own. It is a small space with tiny trinkets filling vintage bowls and beautifully crafted vessels, tables covered in old typewriters and local paper goods/art prints, and cupboards stacked with some of the prettiest tableware I have ever seen. Also, their little front room contains gorgeous jewelry and accessories and the workers are always the sweetest. So if you're in Portland, go ahead- stop in, eat a red velvet cupcake, and buy something pretty.

Note: Noun is located at 3300 southeast Belmont. They also have an online shop right here. Oh yes, and more photographs can be found in this set.

thought of the day : mustaches.

"mustaches on strings are the finest of things," by the great Marc Johns. I always love his work. Always.

interior inspiration : there's no place like home.

This post is dedicated to the types of places that make you want to put your feet up, drink some coffee, read a good book, and fall fast asleep. The places that aren't stark white and minimal or filled with overly modern furniture, with vintage collections, old stoves, filled pantries, and cozy little nooks. You know, the kind of place that feels like home (and totally looks good doing so.)

flickr photo of the day : springtime soiree.

Untitled by abbytrysagain.

I hope you all had a fabulous, sun-filled Memorial Day weekend! The above photograph is a polaroid that my friend Abby took of me and my sister-in-law at the springtime party I threw on Sunday. It was a beautiful day with fresh farmers market food, sweet sun tea, quilts spread out on the grass, bunches of flowers in old bottles all over the place, petal-studded carrot cake and strawberry pie, and wonderful people. I really had an amazing time and it made me feel like this is going to be a truly lovely summer.
