Dispatches from Portland!

If there's one thing I've learned about living in the rainy Pacific Northwest, it's this: when the sun comes out, you get out in it. You drop everything and you get out in it. Which is exactly what I did last week. I grabbed my camera and took a little walk downtown Portland. I drank in the sunshine and collected a few colors. Just for you.











Back soon with some lovely Portland shop tours, friends! I can't wait to share.

I would like to wish you, first of all, the greatest year, since so many of your dreams are about to come true and I truly wish you the best, eventhough I do not know you in person; but I guess that when a person decides to share a bit of her life for years with total strangers, and those on the other side decide to follow those flashes willingly, effortlessly and eagerly we kind of become friends. I´m from Portugal, I do not post very often but I follow your blog daily, anticipating with excitment what the news are going to be this time, never disappointing and always revigorated and inspired. Secondly I’d like to thank you for letting a door open for us, so that we could appreciate through the years the way you’ve evolved into someone so inspiring, so creative, so meticulous, so spontaneous, but above all, so genuinely true to yourself. Thank you, for I have also grown with you. I’ll keep on coming here, visiting you, hoping that if you come to my country one day, I’ll have the pleasure of welcoming you personally, opening then the doors of my house to you and hoping that you’ll feel at ease, just like I do, everytime I come to your blog.I invite you to visit mine as well http://cottoncandy-peaches.blogspot.com/
Cheers to you! Keep on being very Happy!
