I like red shoes...

Hello There!
Here is a pic of my fancy new red shoes, and myself in a *ahem* borrowed Trashy Diva dress (get your own at Duchess!) I figured it was high time that you knew what I look like..that way when you come into the shop you can say, "Hiya Brooke!".
The BIG news around here is that we are *quite* close to having our custom stationery lines up and running...So, very soon you shall be able to come in and order letterpressed wedding, baby, and personalized stationery suites. Eek! Isn't this exciting?!

Just Lovely!

We are pleased to announce that we have just received a fantastic new batch of necklaces by Seattle's own Fernworks. Each piece is unique, and oh so lovely! Birds, flowers, tiny eggs, saffron...captured inside a very neat-o resin. Ah nature!

Don't forget your manners! Send a "Thank You" note, by Egg Press, for that fancy lunch Grandma took you to...she will really appreciate it! We promise.

if'n books

I just love handmade paper goods. Don't you? The glorious smell of fresh, blank, paper...The magic of a hand-stitched binding...
if'n Books is a bindery located in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. We are happy to carry their line of button-hole journals and albums, as well as their exclusive line of Jen Corace journals and planners. Who can resist the opportunity to pen a secret life into one of these beauties?

cultural exchange...

Gimme Your Stuff is this amazing stuff exchanging blog, and we have decided to take part. I plan on exchanging all sorts of handmade items by different indie artist whose work I carry in the shop. Stationery, jewelry, accessories, as well as some good old Oregon-specific treats! I will even send some yarn I've spun, and something knitted...
I hope to exchange with someone who is interested in these kind of items...I've dreamt of living in Sweden, Norway, Finalnd, Scotland, Ireland, France, and Australia...so exchanges from these places would be totally amazing!
