All summer long on Thursdays, stop by the shop and buy produce from local farmer Clea Partridge of ThistleTop Farm!
See Clea's blog for recipes, info on her harvests, and more.

Clea has been farming plots of land all around Portland and has a community supported agriculture program.
on Thursdays her CSA members come by to pick up their share at sword+fern, and she will have produce for sale to passers-by as well.
I will update the blog with what's available the morning of each farmstand day, the times she'll be selling that day, and whether the day has been declared a "farmer goes to the river day"!

Many New Arrivals: Textiles, Ceramics, Jewelry,Paper

Happy Summer Solstice.
Just in time for the first days of bluffs sunsets and river dreaming- the shop is full of new treasures.
Susanna Scott of Zanna printed textiles just dropped off a buuuunch of beauties.
Come grab one of her totes, tea towels, or carry-alls in lovely colors+prints like sage, coral, slate, and ochre...before they're gone! She just got a nice write up on Design*Sponge about her Nasturtium print this weekend.
Also new...so many bright+light colors of the sailor's knot bracelets, ceramics in ocean hues by Alli Gibbons, handmade wooden arrows by Verla Ivans, paper cards by Essimar, and directly from the dreams of one Ms. Cubby H. Berk, I now have purple recycled glass and I've made purple tusk necklaces and earrings for you.

July's shop Spirit Flower: Roses! Yes, they are a drag to grow, with fertilizing, watering, and way too many needs..but there's nothing better than the smell of a sweet tea rose on an early summer day.

I walked around after work today and took some 
photos off broadway near the fashion district.I love Los Angeles.
Portland, you know I'm yours, but L.A.: you will always have my heart.
more photo dedications on the way.i have 4more days here.
Now to find a surfboard..
Sometimes I feel
Like I don't have a partner
Sometimes I feel
Like my only friend
Is the city I live in
The city of Angels
Lonely as I am
Together we cry
I drive on her streets
'Cause she's my companion
I walk through her hills
'Cause she knows who I am
She sees my good deeds and
She kisses me windy and
I never worry
Now that is a lie

magic is pyramidically attracting you to me
