Just in time for gift-giving - these 2 new lovely scents from Saipua avaiable at your favorite shop - ink & peat! As always they are a lovely, lathery olive oil soap and they smell divine! "Winter citrus is a blend of sweet orange, neroli, lavender and fir needle. Orange peel adds the slightest texture. Clary Sage is strangely intoxicating; the scent is bright but earthy with base notes of patchouli and the last minute addition of dill weed".
Happy Thanksgiving to all! I am so thankful to all of you who have read this blog over the years, your kindness, and sense of engagement and community. I wish you all a wonderful day with feasting and family!
I came across this magazine when I was visiting California and was mesmerized - I had to have it. Page after page of gorgeous naturally-inspired decor from Denmark. I am happy to say that we at ink & peat are now the only distibutor of this lovliness here in Portland, Oregon! Come by the shop and take a look at the new Holiday edition of Jeanne D'Arc Living. So charming!
Wanted to make sure everyone knew about this great event in Portland this weekend...Chelsea and Abby have invited so many wonderful artists to sell their handmade wares at this sweet event - Little Winter Market. Go to the blog to read more about it. What fun!
I hope everyone had a fun-filled Halloween on Sunday! Embarrasment of the week - we ran out of candy at 6:30pm !!!! I think with weather being in the low 60's people were out on full force to enjoy the festivities - note to self next year - 6 bags of candy! Anyhoo, I digress....I wanted to show you these pics of the silhouette window decoration we did at our house. This is all done with simple black construction paper cut with scissors and exacto knives. I highly recommend it as a cheap and fun decor idea! Let you imagineation go wild - we did haunted houses, graveyards, ghosts, and spooky trees. Next year - haunted clipper ship???
We nearly caused an incident last weekend when I made my sweetie pull over the see these fabulous creations! I can't believe the ingenuity the creator had when he made these beautiful sculptures - rutabaga as eyebrows, turnip noses, and pink mums for rosy cheeks. They reminded me of the elaborate works of Italian Rennaissance painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo. So clever!
