My pal Megan is WITH CHILD and we celebrated earlier this month up at her adorable dollhouse home with a sweet baby shower. Major congrats to Megan and her husband Gery! Their daughter is due in January! So crazy. BABIES. I wish Anabela could have magically teleported to the party, but at least there’s some coverage of her impressive baby gift skills on her blog. I snapped a quick pic of her cute handmade blanket waiting on the baby’s crib, the little gray sheep is the best part. We had lots of good snacks and I took some pretty funny photos of Megan cradling an amazing/terrifying fairy princess doll that she got as a gift from one of her mother’s friends, whose mother is a doll collector? Something like that. I’m also seriously impressed at the dress collection this baby is going to have, we’ve been joking around about all the baby photoshoots we will have to do but now it seems inevitable, haha. Baby stuff isn’t really my thing but it’s fun when it’s with your friend! And extra fun when your friend has crazy vintage baby bonnets and dresses with kittens coming out of the pockets (cred to Jen for that one!)

For now, more cute stuff.



A few weeks ago I shot the Ay Marieke fall jewelry collection made by my talented friend, Marika. We got to realize some dark, romantic, painterly dreams in these images. One of my favorite, but subtle additions to her line this fall is a 10k gold version of the ojo ring. I have this in silver and wear it every single day, it is one of those perfect rings that you can’t even feel once you put it on. Autumn has undeniably arrived.

This Friday, October 4th, I’m having a little sale party over at Summerland! Maybe you’ve noticed that I haven’t mentioned vintage here in months, and that’s because I am slowly shutting down my shop, after a long run (been at it since 2007!). I’m really happy about it, because it means that I get to focus even more on my photography, which is something I’ve been doing anyway but it’ll be more official.

So, this Friday I’ll be selling off the best of what’s left in my vintage collection, at low prices. Like, nothing over $30. I’m not messing around, haha. Come see us at Summerland – 811 East Burnside #124 (’round the back, downstairs now!), from 6-9PM. Drinks & snacks, plus Megan’s offering 15% off everything.

Not in Portland? I’m also having a big sale in the online shop, a whopping 50% OFF all that remains with the coupon code GOODBYE (enter at checkout). And thank you to everyone who has supported my vintage biz over the years!
