Due to being incredibly busy, and not having had a chance to blog for weeks, I now have a boat load of pictures to blog about. We are still getting settled, and organized, so I will share more once everything is out of boxes, bikes are out of the way, and our home looks just the way we want it to look.
Our cute neighbors brought us cupcakes, Kirsten and I scored that one-armed rocking chair for free on the side of the road, and I painted it teal to surprise her when she came back from a hot week in Texas. Cute!
I now live with my wonderful co-worker, and best friend, Kirsten and her adorable cousin, Kari. They are such incredible roomates, and I am looking forward to many, many family dinners and craft nights <3
We've found some real treasures on craigslist, on the side of the road and at yard sales the last couple of weeks, including orange couches, pictured above, to go with our retro 70's inspired basement movie room, retro wooden box TV, incredible 9 drawer dresser and gold mirror for my bedroom. A desk for the craft room and a cute vintage coffee table. And the cutest handmade vintage dress, made to fit perfectly, for only $1.50, what a steal. Portland is amazing for thrifting and recycling.
Portland is also beautiful, and full of eye candy.
In between unpacking and organizing I found some time to scrapbook, so fun! Our dearest friend Emily, who was Kirstens roomate during summer, moved back to Chicago. She will be greatly missed. Fingers crossed she will move back and be our 4th roomate sometime in the future, hopefully soon. <3
In fear of picture overload, I will be back on Tuesday with photos from the river, our shop anniversary party and other cute summer happenings.
I made another batch of cute gocco prints, and soaps, and much more to share also.
Hope your summer treated you well <3
