During Shop Small Saturday I just couldn’t help but pick up a little something for myself. I had always been intrigued, albeit a bit freaked out, by air plants since coming across them in a small garden shop in Portland’s Mississippi area, Pistils Nursery. When I saw one of this size in a local favorite garden-focused shop, Seed, in DSM’s East Village I simply had to take it home and attempt to keep it alive. Wish me luck and of course I’d welcome any tips!
So excited to be registered for the ALT Design Summit in Salt Lake City! I’d been waffling for weeks (secretly dying to attend) and finally hit the “big red button” of sorts today after taking part in a webcast on What to Wear to the conf – put on by the cutest woman ever – Erin of DesignForMankind.com fame.
Overarching themes? There are no limits, sequins and great shoes expected to rule, and of course the ever-comfy sweater dress with a blazer!
Very excited about the couple days of creative bliss in my future – and some real know-how about upholstery and textile design to round out the trip! Counting down the days…
Are you attending? Hit me up on twitter and we’ll connect!
I have been in PDX this week for work and in my walk from the train to the office every day I have passed these wonderful tiny maple leaves as they are falling to the ground. Perfect small to take two of!
