Take a gander at my wee gingham-clad buddies currently residing on a white felt wreath in my kitchen (scroll 👈🏻).
They have the sweetest faces and their legs are bendy— perfect for holding onto tight spaces.
Pretty limber for senior citizens, eh?

It may not be food PC to eat tomatoes in December, but when they’re atop toasted Ken’s Artisan Country Bread slathered thick with hummus, they taste HEAVENLY.

Decorating my front porch is one of my favorite things about the holiday. Almost everything you see here (including still-in-packaging light up sign for under two dollars!) was purchased at Goodwill or garage sales (including some of the vintage fabric for pillows). @magpieethel, your reindeer has found a comfy new perch and getting lots of neighborhood kids' hugs of late.

Let the #festivevintagefriday posts flow freely... it's the weekend, peeps!
Check out today's blog if you ❤vintage-- it's chockfull of mid-century magic.

Lunch Vibes: Roasted Carrot Leek Soup with Pine Nuts, Cilantro and Scallions.
Homemade is mmmm mmmm good.

Getting my #festivevintagefriday vibe on with old enamelware trays, jimmy-covered candy houses with #gurleycandles and 50’s felted tablecloth.
@magpieethel, I’m so happy to add some of your epic garage sale offerings to my #vintagechristmas collection.
@intovintage, @aliciapaulson and @chrissyleeclark, @elonalandau and @nonconsumer, flaunt that vintage goodness!

Getting my holiday color scheme on with a fantastic lunch @ home: Chicken Wontons with Garlicky Roasted Broccoli in a rich Gingery Chicken Stock.
Soup Day = Good Times.

Proud Mary is THE epicenter of NE Portland Delicious right now.
Swipe 👈🏻 to see this spot in all its flat white finery, turmeric chai tomfoolery, eggery excellence and mezze magic.
I’m blissfully besotted.

Yes--JOY.

Distributed today: 16 bowls of Smoky Bacon and White Bean Soup with Radicchio and Pepitas.
2 avocado toasts.
54 Mini Bundt Cakes.
Received: hugs, wine, a 25 foot evergreen swag, tons of love, a stranger's massive compliment, a flirt, and a restored hope in my greater community. (BONUS: I re-found my pristine red lipstick purchased at Chanel in Paris!).
These are odd, hard, unsettling times-- let's all hold each other close and do what we can to make this roller coaster just a little bit easier for one another.

I just made 64 little mini Devil’s Food cakes and Bundt cakes for a kid’s party, neighbor drop-off and then a cookie swap (swipe 👈🏻).
It’s been a busy day— but one of these bad boys (made more interesting with a peppermint sponge, crushed candy canes and white chocolate shavings) should be a sufficient boost to see me through a long night ahead.
Cheers, chocolate lovers.

I remember one of my first English profs saying this: “Don’t TELL. SHOW.” That said, is there a better way to show how you feel than with a egg fried up with a little Irish butter?

I think not— especially when accompanied with a ripe avocado half and Caraway Rye toast sticks.

It was my absolute pleasure to hang out a bit with @magpieethel blogger/artist Laurie Romanaggi, and interview her for my blog.
For those not familiar with her, Laurie is an extraordinary artist/vintage crafter/collector with fans and followers worldwide. She also happens to own the coolest and most extensive collections of mid-century memorabilia I’ve ever seen, and I had a blast roaming through her house and studio checking out her finds, many purchased on the cheap from decades of estate sale-ing.
Check out my piece (and see all those pics of some of her collections!) if you love vintage and be sure to say a big hello to her at her booth @craftywonderland through this Sunday at the Oregon Convention Center.
Thanks, Laurie— you’re a Portland gem!
