let’s be real here. we are all mighty envious of alyson’s warm weather tropical getaway. it is that time of year, when the gray is getting pretty tired, the holidays have come and gone, we’re tired of the snow and rain (after having braved the worst storm portland has seen in 40 years!) and we’re all craving just a glimmer of sun and warmth. i’m taking a little break from freckle farm this week to fill in for alyson, and hopefully sprinkle a little bit of inspiration throughout your week to help us all weather the gray skies.
these lovelies come from portland’s own emily baker at sword + fern. she makes all her jewelry from recycled car parts, vintage finds, beach glass, and other repurposed objects. if you are local, you can pay her and her gorgeous creations a visit over on 8th and burnside. if you are elsewhere, swing by her etsy shop and treat yourself to something pretty.
