Oregon, Waterfalls

Portland gets better each time I visit, mainly this time around because I spent time outside of the city, hiking with friends at Eagle Creek and Punchbowl Falls, and Wahkeenah Falls.

I am so proud of these people who are making art and kicking ass in a city that caters to those things:

Elisabeth Horan, collage, fabric, and nonsense extraordinaire. 

Jeff Sheridan, cartoonist, illustrator, and wise-cracking genius. I have this one hanging in my room.

Kai Mathur, all around badass, artist, model, designer.

Autumn of the Chihuahua

A couple weekends ago T and I had the great honor of pretending we were in high school again and dressing up for prom. I wore the same dress I wore to my senior high school prom and drank much more wine than the first go-round.  Here is a totally unrelated, but painfully cute photo in San Francisco last weekend when Jen K. visited!! 

Exhibits A and B: 

Then! This weekend I bought a mushroom mini farm from Far West Fungi in the Ferry Building  and should soon have shitakes alongside my bromeliad and semi-dying orchids. Other happenings around the home and garden: 

Chicken in the sunshine

Fresh from the garden yesterday! 

Peppers, and some unknown plant

Morning Glory vining all over the place
