and More Gift Ideas - 2010

Mas. Mehr. Mer. Daha.


Zinc Outdoor Thermometer

Cute. Love it. From terrain.


Faded Floral Hottie

Yes it is a UK site but I still love it. Toast.


Dandelion Necklace

From the site Twig.


.... and then almost anything from And make some time to check out land located on North Mississippi Ave in Portland.


Local apple goodness can be had online at Wandering Aengus Ciderworks.

I recently went for a tasting of their wonderful cider up in the way out west hills location outside of Salem. I learned that their last tasting at this location is scheduled for next weekend (December 3rd & 4th) and I hear there will be a Groupon coming out that sounds wonderful. They are slated to have another tasting event in January (7th & 8th) at their new location in Salem. If you are unable to make it to the tastings and would like to try their cider (I <3 Bloom and Wanderlust) then purchase some online or locally at Lifesource Natural Foods.

Have fun.

Keyhole Flats

I love these. So simple yet yummy. Made by Molly Puzo from Long Beach, CA and sold in her Etsy shop - HydraHeart

A bit of whimsy. Fun t-shirts can be had at Dark Cycle Clothing on Etsy.


Shadow Play

I can envision a little girl sitting on her bed looking at this print on the wall and just thinking. Imagining. Wondering, is it possible?

Delightful prints from Ella MacKay. Her Etsy shop is theaterclouds


The Swimmers

This could be a picture from my youth. A 13 x 19 print from local artist Lisa Golightly on her etsy site kikiandpolly.

Also peruse her website -, where you could order a custom piece. I am partial to her line portraits.

More options.
More fun.


I think I might have another sliver of pie. Ciao.
