Anyway, since reading this post I realized I absolutely need a pair or these boots. They're beyond perfect summer boots. Perforated tan suede, slouchy buckles, cut-outs with a western flair... what more could you want out of a summer boot?
Some One of a Kind newbies hitting the shop these next few days...! I've been really into milky white agates and stones with dendrite formations. I've been working on a couple new Druzy pieces too, so stay tuned for those!
Is it really April 8th already?? It's not just my blog that's stuck on April 1st, it's my entire brain, really. Time has been flying and summer is slowly creeping up on us (yes!)
These photos were taken last weekend on Easter Sunday when it was summery and gorgeous out and everybody in Portland was at the Portland Nursery buying up plants. IT. WAS. PACKED. People out here are serious about springtime sun and gardening it up on weekends. We've been gardening a bit outside (trying to cheer up the yard) and picking some plants for our new (larger) studio.
Oh yeah, and WE MOVED STUDIOS!! I'm pretty sure that's why it's been so silent around here the past few weeks... We were originally working out of a shoebox studio about the size of our bathroom, but are now working in a gorgeous space with lots of light and space to breathe! Such a relief.
Also, the best part is that I will now have space for an in-studio boutique-type area!! Once I have it all set up it will be open to the public (probably about one day a week and then by appointment only), so hopefully I can have my local Portland customers stop by and visit! Super exciting. I'll be sure to post photos of the space as soon as everything is set-up. Right now I'm in the process of building up an inventory, which is new, since all my stuff is generally made to order. Nonetheless, exciting stuff is happening around here...!
Happy April!!!! SO excited. Nothing like a bit of travel + sun to look forward to this month! We're heading down to the Bay Area this month to visit the fam. Also, my brother's coming out to CA from Austria, so it'll be a big party (involving lots of snacks, I'm sure...)
Oh, and the photos above were taken at Oui Presse on Hawthorne in Portland. BEST COFFEE CAKE EVER. Made from scratch. In house. Caramelized hazelnuts on top = heaven.
