If you are in the Portland area, come to the West Elm Portland store this Saturday for an Etsy Pop-Up! The event includes 8 hand selected makers who will be selling their work in the West Elm store, including my favorite serving board maker Red Onion Woodworks. I’ll be selling a selection of what I hope to be a nice variety of sizes and price points. There will be a few old favorite styles, including some rucksacks and totes, and a number of fun surprises. I hope to see you there!

the essence of handmade

I don’t usually share about personal packages I receive, but there have been a few recently, that I have felt inspired about. One such recent arrival, was a package from enhabiten.

I have appreciated Liane’s work for years, and finally have been able to hold some in my own hands, and see it in person. To me, the essence of handmade is here. There is a depth in her work and a clear, unmistakable mark of the creative human hand. Natural, useful, beautiful, textural, there is something really touching about it.

My zip pouch is full of the little things that end up all over my desk (otherwise known as our coffee table), like pens, SD cards, a mini notebook, a hair clip. It’s the prettiest way to stash these kinds of things that I have ever had. And the scarf is as satisfying to look at as it is to wear. I feel super fortunate to have these things in my home.

You can find enhabiten here.

Some new items at meadow + mark this week. Check out le shoppe if you like.

OH, and we found the mother lode of hand made vintage wooden items this week! Oh my gosh we were so excited we probably seemed a little bit silly in the shop. Myrtlewood, walnut, almond, teak. Most likely a hobbyists collection. We’ll keep a few things for our home. I think I want to keep it all, but I will show some restraint.

I hope you’re having the best of weekends.

handmade soap




I am pretty fussy about what I put on my skin. It has to be simple, pure and made of things I can identify. For years I have been using Dr Bronners as my one and only soap for hands, face and shower. Last year it felt time for a change and somewhere along the way I was fortunate enough to discover Oakmoss. Amber makes high quality soaps (and natural soy candles for the candle lovers) and she uses only pure and organic vegetable oils as the base, and pure essential oils for fragrance. She has a great selection of bars available right now, freshly cured. I can’t wait to try my new Lavender Citrus bar, and I can highly recommend the Lemon Wood – woodsy, rich and deep with a complexity that picks you right up, and worth every penny of  6 dollars for such solid, long lasting, high quality soap. Amber is gentle and kind and provides generously sized samples to boot. So go take a look, before this batch is gone!

However, if you waited too long, worry not, as I will be offering some “ready-to-ship” items over the next few days.
