"Hey Francisco - you know all that hair they have been trimming? She's weaving CAPES and selling them! Sheeeeesh!"

Oregon is amazing.
Looking out the window at 80 ft pines I wonder
what the original explorers must have seen on this Oregon Trail below Mt. Hood.
Portland is out there.

fair trade company, your purchases really do make
a difference in the lives of the many artists
we represent here. They set their own prices,
according to their needs, and we respect those
prices. As you can tell by the work found here,
and the quality, this is a winning combination.
I can't even begin to tell you what a wonderful thing it is to have such loyal and wonderful customers! I love the little notes and comments in the the dialog box when you check out, and the very cool notes you leave with your orders. I am smiling as I type this!
Thank you SO much!
Hand-dyed tie necklace with seeds and pods by Solin and Walter.
Coming soon (Fall).
have updated the collection of black clay pottery
from Mexico with 30 new pieces, which are really
elegant and one of a kind, while being extraordinarily
well-priced. The Mateos family is quite
famous in Mexico, but virtually unknown here.
If you want to prove to one-and-all that you have
exquisit taste, this is the gift I recommend,
for someone special or for yourself.
And of course ALWAYS cotton clothing
for her for him
Be sure to check out
cotton clothing for women AND men. I have
also added some embroidered dresses for children.
There are new blouses with LOTS of embroidery,
headpieces, and belts for a fresh look. I recently
added some wonderful new organic jewelry, made
with seeds, pods, and stones like agate, jasper
and quartz, to finish that breezy lightweight
cotton look. The blouses are also super-nostalgia
As we settle into Oregon we have begun to meet
the new critters. Our first summer we saw this guy
He was just strolling around in the pasture with our
neighbor's horses (great for lawn-mowing) pouncing on available field mice. Usually we don't see these guys, but on any evening they create quite a serenade. My critters
have stopped diving for the covers when they hear them.
The Canadian Geese are back. Noisy and joyful!
I can't imagine living in any other way!
am constantly reminded that I am a lucky soul.
I have been tying to do what I can to help those
around me who need help, and all I ask from
you is that you do ONE kind thing outside your
comfort zone for 2015. Take a bag of
canned goods to a local shelter, help out a
family in need at your church, synagogue or
temple, deliver a bag of dog food or cat food
to your local shelter, do SOMETHING that may
require an extra hour of your time. If,
like me, you have been lucky, then pay it forward.
You'll feel GREAT!
