Splurge At SBLC

Lewis & Clark Law School's Small Business Legal Clinic (SBLC) offers legal help to small businesses in Portland through their Intern Program and the Pro Bono Project. It's a non-profit program that offers affordable legal resources to small businesses that need it. We spoke about how positive our experience has been and in what aspects this has helped our boutique. To find out more of SBLC click here.

P.S. Thanks Erin and Baby O for closing the shop for me in such a short notice;)

Messenger Bags by Jennifer Covert

Jennifer Covert uses left over upholstery
leather to make her bags. No two are alike.
The straps are adjustable and the hardware
is fantastic. They have a rock-star
feel to them - at least that's what
I felt when I tried
them all on.

Secretly I'd like to be a rock-star.

Sweet Treat

This one is 2 parts.
My little guy was so giddy to share this sweet
treat with me that he had to have a skip around
shop with this cup cake. Beautiful, sweet
cake ended up smashed against the wall
when my son tripped. I've never seen frosting
and sprinkles smeared on a wall before. It
was HILARIOUS! I wanted to capture the aftermath
on my camera. I couldn't show him
how funny this was because I'd be condoning
his reckless behavior. "Momma
said no running or skipping." This is the alternate. Yummy and pretty it it's
own right.
Enjoy your weekend!

New Work in by Said in Stone

These tiles are re-purposed with vinyl artwork and their designs are minimal and fantastic. Their coasters are made with images of a chandelier, cherry blossom and more. They make a great gift for that special someone who's really hard to figure out. Uhh hem... my Dad, brother-in-law, preschool teacher, etc...

Coaster set of 4 $22

Outdoor Happenings

The sun was out and I had to soak up some rays.
Really, I actually heard the sultry humming of a classic
I guess it's in my blood. Hmmm, those boys
look strangely familiar.

As I curiously checked out our 'lil block, I noticed
a wine bar Coming Soon -2 doors down.
Also, Sofia is empty:( Ladies inquired on
her whereabouts today.
