Below is another batch of plantings that we did at the shop with a BEAUTIFUL Agave (my favorite) in one of them. We also used some lemon coral sedum and a few special Echeveria - I think block pots always look great and sophisticated!
My husband got me this pot below for Christmas - from Obleeek in the Bay Area......super lightweight, modern and asymmetrical - perfect for the Adenium I planted in it. It has made itself at home on my kitchen counter and it looks fantastic!
The lovely Miss Barbara recently threw a puppy party for Stella, the amazing wonder-pup - it was a blast and Stella was completely on over-stim....and these cupcakes were definitely a hit! Our friend Eric got them from Saint Cupcake in Northwest Portland and custom-topped with with his very ingenious Stella-Palooza toppers! We were all quite impressed! So crafty! So clever! So yummy! Thanks Eric!

Tomorrow I am expecting a HUGE delivery of custom furniture for several clients. My favorite piece in the order is a BEAUTIFUL upholstered platform bed. The headboard is very simple, square and 65" tall...outlined with beautiful chrome nailheads - an upholstered platform and square black wood feet. I ordered two of them, I liked the one for the client so much I ordered another one for me! YIPPEE!!!! The fabric I chose for the client is a red and black linen weave linen/poly blend with a few metallic fibers for accent and the fabric I chose for me was the same pattern but without the red, only the black. I had one of these beds on the floor of the shop and took more than a few orders off of it. It really is beautiful and stately.
Lastly......check out this picture of my darling puppy Stella.......she is a Treeing Walker Coonhound...but in this picture doesn't she look like a kangaroo? this picture was after a long hard day at doggy daycare - she goes to Dogs Dig It in Portland - they have a doggy web cam and we can spy on her during the day - It's hard to be the dog!
