apologies for the lack of blogging, but life has been busy.

We took a little trip to Portland {Oregon} to visit a friend this past weekend.

I love going to visit especially this time of year.

Fall is still in the air, but so is Christmas, which I love.   B and I go to Portland every year in the late fall to get a good deal of our holiday shopping done.

While we cannot share with you what we actually bought since many of our friends and family read this blog… we can tell you a few of our favorite shopping spots for when you are in the PDX…

{CLICK on the shop name to learn more…all pictures are via the shops’ websites}

Ink & Peet

fun shop and blog… filled with floral beauty and outstanding handmade housewares by all different artists. {let’s talk about how many things in this picture I want, badly.}

 

Nationale….

a terriffic little Burnside shop with lots of French goodies.  They also have some great vintage items!  (B will have to show you her new red shoes!)

 

Artemisia

a garden & gift shop.  They had the best little terrarium making supplies there!

 

Land

gallery upstairs.  main floor full of creative and handmade items.  Tempting jewelry, humorous t-shirts, perfect prints from talented designers.

 

Canoe

a favorite every time we get to Portland.   They carry tons of Scandinavian items and Heath Ceramics.  Double drool of design delight!

 

Oblation

Portland’s best paper store.  Letterpress, calendars, wrap galore!

 

Don’t worry, you can still shop online.  Though, walking around in all your Christmas delight is quite the fun!
