If You Are in Portland, Oregon.....
...you must stop by this shop. Though I have never been there, I was introduced to this little treat via a new blog. (Don't you wish there were more blogging minutes in a day?)
Lisa has a delightful new blog called A Thing For Roses..and yes, she loves, loves, loves roses and PINK! I met Lisa because she stopped by my little neck of the blog world and left a comment. When I peeked into her blog I was immediately in love with her style and the things that she sells.
Lisa is a wife and a mother of two young children, yet she finds time in her life to sew, go junking and maintain a little booth at an antique mall in Portland. She and her friend, Isabel, share the space together and it is just as delightfully sweet as a bowl full of sugar cubes! The space is called Tickled Pink (I can see why!).
During the summer months you can also find Lisa, Isabel and their space of treasures at antique shows, including the Portland Antique Expo. They sell items that are shabby chic (tm), vintage and cottage style.
Lisa also sews and makes wonderful embellished denim jackets, pillows and basket liners. When you have a moment, please skip on over to Lisa's blog and pay her a little visit. She is a sweetie pie!
If you are in Portland, and I know a lot of you lucky bloggers and readers are, here is where you can find Tickled Pink's booth:
