Jaunty Times at the Silver Farm

I just went and visited the Silver Farm in Mosier,OR. I had a grand time playing among the flowers, eating the fruits and veggies, and splashing in the creek. It was HOT! So peaceful and quiet. I did a bit of gathering work, berries, some of the biggest poppies I've ever seen and delicious carrots!
The sunflowers have just started to show their faces. While the dahlias need a bit longer (so I'll have to go back ;) )
The snapdragons are some of the most beautiful and fragrant. And the hollyhocks...there aren't words for their beauty!
I also couldn't believe how many bees there were, glorious buzzing sounds. Lots of creatures, a thirsty hummingbird by the creek, a water snake and some crawfish in the creek, butterflies golore and dragonflies.
I could have picked blue berries for hours and hours but alas I had to come back to the city.

Happy Mama Portland

Check Spelling

Last night I had the pleasure of partaking in a Happy Mama party.
It was a lot of fun and a wonderful idea. I had a St. Cupcake, did some tasting of Hip Chicks do Wine, got my cards read by Mindy who reads at Flutter, plus I got to meet so many wonderful people and mamas.

Woolly Pocket Weekend

For those of you that don't know...which if I've met you I've most likely mentioned...I heart Woolly Pockets in a BIG way! I discovered them on the back of a magazine two years ago while waiting to get my hair done. It was love at first sight.
I'm hoping to do the side of the outside of the building. And I encourage all the new apartment owners to fill their balconies! Lets bring this building to LIFE!

All pics from except bottom left. That's us :)

Fair weekend...

This past Saturday was the Mississippi Street Fair. We had a blast! Sold a whole lot of succulent terrariums and hanging gourd succulents. It was hot, hot, hot out. But everyone was in the best spirits. We couldn't have asked for a better day.

I got to do some impromptu hand bouquets as well, joy!
