I absolutely love Fall…the crisp air, chilly but sunny days, leaves changing, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin pie, pumpkin muffins, and honestly, anything pumpkin! Which is why when we got in our newest candles I couldn’t wait to burn one… Pumpkin Spice Candles! And these candles did not disappoint – Our little store now smells deliciously like Fall.
“Rich pumpkin, fresh spice, and a hint of baked crust fill the air”
These candles burn wonderfully and will get you in the mood for those crisp Autumn days. They are $7.00 each, or 3 for $20. The burn time is 20 hours.
Here is how they look when they burn!
We hope you stop in soon as we’ll only have them for a limited time!

UPS arrived today and I was giddy opening up the box to see our brand new invitation book called Jenn Sprinkle. The invitations are fun and fresh and the overall style is perfect for the modern bride. Each invitation is “all inclusive” and includes the main invitation, an RSVP Postcard, Reception information and Map. Below you can see what I mean by “all inclusive” .
Here is the front:
Here is the invite:
The RSVP Postcard – It is attached to the invite and then your guests tear it off and send it back to you. No fuss, just fun!
On the right is where we can print the reception information (if the reception is at a different location).
On the back – A map or directions!
All in one, perfect.
The best part is – the designs are adorable and you can change up the colors and wording.
I especially love this Chevron one…
Tandem bike – so cute for a Portland couple!
We can also print all the corresponding items to go with the invite.
Love this Ikat!
These are even better in person, and we can’t wait for you to see them!

Can you believe Football season is right around the corner? How did this summer go so fast!? With games right around the corner we are excited to announce that we are now carrying Duck and Beaver accessories in the store!
Now that these items have arrived I’ll need to do some shopping in my own store to root for my team. I am a Duck at heart (born and raised in Eugene) but of course we also have fabulous OSU accessories for all of our Beaver customers (which usually out number the Duck Fans!).
Today we opened up a big box of new items including earrings, spirit bands, flower pins, necklaces, key chains and more! The full selection is in the store, but here are some photos of all the new things we have…
Go Pac-12 (still getting used to that!)

Our neighbor is a very talented photographer and I thought it was about time I introduced her! Next door to our store (in fact in the building we used to be in) is Emily Andrews Portrait Design studio. Emily has been photographing for over 16 years, and you can tell when you meet her and see the studio that it is her passion. She does senior portraits, new baby photos, maternity shots, kids, couples, and of course family photos!
If you have ever tried to take a photo of a little one, or a family, you know it’s not easy to get everyone to smile (especially at the same time), but Emily has a knack for getting everyone to look their best. Aside from the fact that she has a sweet demeanor and makes you feel right at home, her photos are amazing. My little sister had her senior portraits done by Emily…
Isn’t she beautiful!!? :)
One of my favorite things about her studio is the garden in the back. Emily has created a little world behind the house with unique sets and backdrops. Here is my favorite one…the Beach Shack!
(photo taken from my i-phone)
These change seasonally which means every year your family can be behind a different backdrop. Fun!

Here is the outside of her studio (the old home of The Wedding Cottage).

If you need a new family photo I hope you will stop by and meet Emily. And while you are there, stop by and say hi to us as well!
