and so...

I am off for the weekend. This week has been rather wretched, mainly due to the overwhelming heat, so I am welcoming the (slightly cooler) weekend with open arms. Have fun everyone!

the summer social.

Sorry that it has been a little quieter than usual here this week. In case you are wondering, I have been getting things together for this...

The Summer Social is an event that Abby Powell Thompson is putting on this Saturday here in Portland. There will be a number of creative people selling their artwork, along with good food and vintage beauties. I feel quite lucky to be a part of the whole thing and seriously cannot wait for the weekend. More information about the event can be found on the Summer Social blog. If you live in Portland or will be visiting this Saturday, please stop by and say hi (and maybe even buy a slice of homemade pie from me!)
