Introducing: Wood Fiber Clay

I am pleased to introduce a new shop today, out of the Napa Valley, owners Kelley and Lisa, niece and aunt, have combined their interior, floral, and business backgrounds to create a special new shop and studio with thoughtfully made, fair-trade products and exclusive collaborations with local craftspeople. Kelley says, “Our makers are a mix of friends, creatives we admire, and suppliers with a like-minded focus on sustainability and responsible production.” Today I am sharing a few of my favorite products from Wood Fiber Clay, that offer beauty and function for any home.

Lisbon Travel Guide

lisbon travel guide
I first fell in love with Lisbon in February of 2015 and after traveling back and forth for a few months, officially moved here in September of the same year. Why Lisbon, people ask?

Lisbon is at times a bit raw, on the rise from a recession, still stuck in the past, but also full of new and interesting places and people.

Included here are just a few of my favorite stops for food, art, gardens, and shopping, that I have visited myself over and over again. Some will be obvious, while others are secrets I am hesitant to share! I am in the process of working on a more comprehensive guide and more in depth posts as well, but for now, here are the places I love to share with visitors.

On Our Bookshelf: Comestible Quarterly

comestible quarterly food
Anna Brones, a Swedish American, Paris expat, and fellow Northwest girl, writes the loveliest books (you can see them here).

She wrote one of my favorite books about Fika. Her latest project is a charming little zine, Comestible, focusing on food! And as much as I love making and viewing food photography, she´s left that out of the magazine, and it creates a quiet, and instantly refreshing publication focusing on interesting but accessible food.

Shop Visit: The Golden Rabbit

Luckily, they have an online shop, but if you find yourself in Dusseldorf, Germany, be sure to stop by!
