Shop Love

I have already started my day dreaming and it's only 6 am. I am desperately wanting my own shop. A shop where I can display beautiful handmade items from artists around the world (and of course my own creations). I envision a brick building with a blue wooden door where the paint is chipping. There is an old cruiser bike propped up outside, and flower boxes are hanging from beneath the vast amount of windows. Inside the smell of my Moody Bitch products are wafting through the air and my dogs are lazily spread out on their doggy beds.

These images are from Ink and Peat, a fairly new store that opened in Portland, Or. I am in love with this space and want it for myself! If you are ever in Portland make sure and stop by, I'm sure you will find plenty of goodies. Also, check out Ink and Peat's blog - Housemartin. Pam, the owner and floral designer pays such attention to detail, and has an awesome talent for creating the perfect vignettes. I'm drooling, truly I am. Someday- right???

Hi there,
I just wanted to stop by and say hello and also let you know I especially like your post about opening your own shop one day. You sound like me 6 years ago. I say go for it but just remember your life will never be the same again. LOL
