Bridge & Burn x MAKELIKE Hawaii 503

Bridge & Burn x MAKELIKE Hawaii 503

I’m such a fan of the work that Erik does for Bridge & Burn.  and this collab with Portland’s MAKELIFE is no exception.  a Northwest inspired twist on a traditional Hawaiian pattern with Rhododendrons, Dogwood blossoms and Douglas Fir trees, as well as prevelant Northwest lakes, clouds and rain.  just rad.  check them out here!

and if you’re in Portland, head out to the release party tomorrow, night.

WildCraft Studio

WildCraft Studio

WildCraft is a creative space in the Columbia River Gorge, right outside Portland, OR, offering classes, workshops and events to the public.  the genius behind WildCraft is my friend Chelsea Heffner, formerly of plainMADE.  WildCraft has a fantastic line up of workshops scheduled this summer such as Screenprinting 101, Weaving in the Wild and Natural Dyes from Weeds & Wilds.  they just made their Kickstarter goal to help fund the classes and I’m so excited for them!!  check out this beautiful video about WildCraft from their Kickstarter page.

if you’re in Portland, or anywhere near by for that matter, have a look at their schedule of courses and pick something out to attend!  Chelsea tells me they have plans for a late summer Wild Supper, a dinner party with vegetables from their garden and pizza from their own woodfired earth-oven, which I’m hoping to attend.  dreamy, right?  they also have an online shop and are printing limited edition prints for each of the workshops this summer.

shop stop : Frances May – Portland, Oregon

Unruly Things Shop Stop : Frances May - Portland, OR : photos by Anja Verdugo

one of my absolute favorite shops in Portland is Frances May.  I adore the owner, Pam, and her gorgeous shop girls.  each time I stop in, I end up spending at least an hour in the shop, chatting or trying on fancy dresses and shoes.  they recently went through some renovations to expand the fitting rooms and make a fantastic new cash wrap.  this meant expanding the jewelry display – my fave.  Frances May not only carries beautiful clothing, jewelry and accessories for women, but they also carry a great collection of wares for men.  if you’re in Portland, be sure to stop in and if you’re not, shop the online store.

Mother’s Day event with Anthropologie

Unruly Things Mother’s Day event with Anthropologie #anthroevents

this past weekend, I hosted a Mother’s Day DIY event with Anthropologie in Portland.  we made kokedama string gardens with gorgeous orchids that I picked up from Portland Nursery.  the ladies at Anthropologie were amazing to work with!  the space set up for us was beautiful.  we had yummy treats to eat and even mimosas to sip on.  we had lots of fun making a pretty mess and getting our hands dirty making our kokedama.  all the attendees {25 ladies and 1 brave guy!} ended up with some beautiful kokedama to give to their mothers or hang in their own homes.

The Portland Collection Fall ’13

UnrulyThings-TPCFall13_1

you guys, I’m bursting with excitement to share with you a first look at the newest collection from Pendleton’s The Portland Collection.  it’s been almost a year since I left my job at Pendleton to start our new life in Bend and usually I’ve seen samples and peeks along the way for each collection.  but for this one, I’ve been out of the loop until this week.  a friend and former coworker emailed me these images just yesterday and oh my gosh… I’m obsessed!!  the latest collection is so sophisticated and classically Pendleton.  here are some of my favorite looks.
