Baby chairs

I just finished unpainting these toddler chairs and I was so surprised one had at one time been painted yellow and the other hot pink! I love having happy surprises like this…

New fat birds

I love Dawn’s new birds … they’re bigger and fatter. Birds are probably the only things that appreciate those two descriptive adjectives. Cherry is my favorite!photo copy 3 photo copy photo

Roost your eyes on this….

I was downtown last week to check out the vegan bakery Boots on (approximately) Main & Division and was pleasantly surprised. While waiting in line for my vegan chocolate cupcakes for Valentine’s Day I felt like I’d been picked up and plunked down in Portlandia! I love Portlandia … it makes me miss Portland even more though. I turned to the woman behind me and said as much. Her reply? “You are in Portlandia.” She said she was a transplant here due to her husband’s job move.

And since I was right across the street, I popped over to Roost to check out their inventory. Pleasantly surprised was I, when I found a darling little, pink ceramic flower pot, a bird cage top, shabby black bucket, pink bud vase and a couple of nests. We’ll be using lots of nests etc. for Lola’s Girls birds in upcoming shows.

Here’s a quick photo of my treasures. Oh and the candy dish on the left is one I bought there a couple weeks ago and filled with Pottery Barn’s artichokes.
