Amy White and Spencer Clarence | West Seattle Junction

It had been so long since I went to West Seattle. Don and I spent an afternoon there eating Pizza and wandering California Ave.  There were so many people out enjoying the weekend and Christmas shopping.   I found model Amy White and Spencer Clarence outside Easy Street Records.

Katarina Powell and Jane Hedreen | Flora and Henri

Katarina and Jane have been friends since they were on the cross country team together in high school. Jane is the owner Seattle children's clothing store Flora and Henri and Katarina is an artist and designer. I took this photo recently at a Flora and Henry holiday event. They have a new women's clothing line called Flora Femme and it is so great!

Gift Idea | Shibori

I recently borrowed a book from the library on the art of Shibori; the earliest known example of Japanese cloth dying. It has such an incredible history and I loved the idea that no two Shibori pieces will ever be the same. Each piece is affected by every little thing all the way down to the temperment of the artist. Reading about it got me so excited to do it myself. 

I bought some cotton flour sack towels, a plastic tarp, a couple buckets and a basic indigo dye kit and over the weekend I made Shibori kitchen towels to give as Christmas gifts. It was so much fun. 

Just make sure you wear all black... It's a little messy...

Obi Kaufmann | Juniper Ridge Wilderness Perfumes

Obi works for Juniper Ridge, the world's only wild fragrance company. The perfumes are made from real plants that are hand collected by the people who work for the company. Pretty incredible... The fragrances are sold here in Seattle at Freeman's on Capitol Hill.
