I’m currently re-reading that title by Junot Diaz. I love his voice, and the way he softens his characters as the story develops. I recommend. What are you reading right now? .

What are your thoughts on creativity? Or rather- do you think that creativity is something that can be depleted from exercising it too much? Ever since opening the brick and mortar, I swear I’ve been in a creative rut. I’m actually at a really good point in my life, I’m not depressed, I’m feeling very happy and positive- I am just also feeling super uninspired lately- like I used up all of my creative reserves in the process of opening the shop. I mean, is that a thing?? Hell, even this photo is a repost because I can’t seem to make my camera capture the scene that my minds eye is seeing lately. I’ve been trying to be patient in waiting for my creative juices to start flowing again, but it’s just not happening. Anyway, it’s been on my mind lately. Any advice? .

Throwback to a couple of weeks ago when @rootsandcrownspdx and I got to go on a dream plant shopping spree to find our @homebodyportland shop plant babies. My truck has never looked so good 👀🌿🌿🌿

A Monday morning scene that feels like a Friday evening scene because it’s finally my weekend and there’s a soft breeze coming in through the windows and John Coltrane from the speakers and This Is How You Lose Her floating around in my hands and so this is pretty much my idea of day-off perfection ✨

I’m into things that are timeless....like subway tile, good old rugs, and being nice to people 🌿

I’ve been hanging out in my cottage next door lately-sneaking over back and forth from my house for long baths in the remodeled bathroom and for sipping coffee in the pretty early morning light over here, enjoying it until my new renters move in. So if you see a girl walking the streets of NE Portland in nothing but a bath towel- that’s me 🙋🏻‍♀️ .

I found this handmade rug yesterday, and I’m kind of obsessed with it 👖
