That’s what I was screaming as I spent more time at Heidi’s blog……..Mt. Hope Chronicles.
and thought…….”WAIT! NO! This can’t be the little shop I tried to visit in September?” Well with a bit more digging……..yes it was! My mom lives down the Willamette Valley (and I was born in Lebanon) and while my husband and son headed further South to the Duck Game, I planned to spend the day shopping with my Mother. I was very excited to go here and had planned the trip around going to THIS SHOP! But they were closed. CLOSED! I was so bummed. I almost got out of my car and threw a tizzy right there. So glad I didn’t. I pouted for at least 15 minutes until I was distracted by another amazing sale. This shop, Poets Garden….. is way out in the country. WAY way out! Beautiful. Reminded me so much of my childhood roaming around these parts. I wonder if she’s been to the Strawberry festival? Small World! I can’t wait to visit.
After finding this out…….that her mom, sister and her started and run this shop, it totally made sense to why her style is so amazing. And only growing up in the Willamette Valley would give you the idea to grow wheat grass for a part of you decor! FABULOUS! (for those of you not from the NW…….it’s pronounced Will – AM – ETT………..not willa mett)
More grass………… I love this circle art. She did that too. Yes there is a tutorial. I have often eye’d those candles and thought about decorating them. There is nothing you can’t do with some great scrapbook paper. You could also use some yummy fabric too. I love the fact that the items I love in her house were all made by her………hand made goodness. One more look at the grass just in case you didn’t believe me. How cute would this be around Easter time? She homeschools her boys. 3 adorable boys. Do you think they know how lucky they are to have a classroom like this? That cute room is inside this cute house! Darling. Can’t wait to see it more photos of this in the spring and summer. And if she’s not talented enough………decorating with grass afterall ………..homeschooling…………she also takes great photographs. Don’t worry, it’s not a busy road. I’ve been on that road.
