Spring Sale!

Hello all,
I hope this finds you well.
Wasn't that sunshine so nice? Surprisingly though, i am loving this rain.
It wouldn't feel like Spring in Portland without it, right?

It also wouldn't feel like Spring without an end-of-season sale.

All of last season's clothing has been marked to 60% off.
A rack of previously marked down clothing is now 70% off.

From Thursday, March 12- Sunday, March 15:
Sale jewelry is an additional 20% off.
Perfume is 20% off.

I'm sorry, this is an in-store sale only. (maybe a phone call works too!)

We hope to see you at the shop soon but if not, please enjoy your weekend.

All the best,

Rachel & Brighid

ps. always feel free to park in the driveway- park tightly.. we can fit 3 cars!

Favorite parts of the holiday season:
Traveling up into the Mt Hood forest to collect a tree, watching the purple mountains become shadows while sipping hot cocoa.

Making lots and lots of cookies and decorating them all extravagantly with sprinkles and frosting.

Stockings! I love little surprises, and the plethora is so fun!

My favorite part of the holidays growing up was pulling out the old boxes full of decorations and stockings. I revel in unpacking them and putting them all in their designated spots on the mantle, on the piano, on the shelves and in the windows. Everything smells of old potpourri, winter spices, and dust. I still have a strong sense memory of the smells and textures of all of those old things back home in Texas. And the tree! Decorating the tree still gives me great joy. A few years ago I went back home for Christmas but didn't arrive until late on Christmas Eve. When my mother had gotten me home from the airport there was a bare tree standing in the living room with all the decorations out waiting just for me. Her little gift of nostalgia still makes my heart swell to remember it. 
The deep wine reds and forest greens of the season remind me of all the warm cozy things in her wardrobe, too.

This Morning.

This morning was something. A little snow
lay on the ground. The sun floated in a clear
blue sky. The sea was blue, blue-green,
as far as the eye could see.
Scarcely a ripple. Calm. I dressed and went
for a walk__ determined not to return
until I took in what Nature had to offer.
I passed close to some old, bent-over trees.
Crossed a field strewn with rocks
where snow had drifted. Kept going
until I reached the bluff.
Where I gazed at the sea, and the sky, and
the gulls wheeling over the white beach
far below. All lovely. All bathed in a pure
cold light. But, as usual, my thoughts
began to wander. I had to will
myself to see what I was seeing
and nothing else. I had to tell myself this is what
mattered, not the other. (And I did see it,
for a minute or two!) For a minute or two
it crowded out the usual musings on
what was right, and what was wrong__ duty,
tender memories, thoughts of death, how i should treat
with my former wife. All the things
I hoped would go away this morning.
The stuff I live with every day. What
I've trampled on in order to stay alive.
But for a minute or two I did forget
myself and everything else. I know I did.
For when I turned back I didn't know
where I was. Until some birds rose up
from the gnarled trees. And flew
in the direction I needed to be going.

-Raymond Carver
